Hi I'm Dalan

I was born and raised in Utah, I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (a Mormon) my whole life.

About Me

I love to play basketball. I played on the high school team while in school. I am about to graduate from high school May 2016. After that I have been called to serve a mission in the Argentina Mendoza mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, I have a testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that because of the suffering of Jesus we can all live again with him. That gives hope and purpose to my life, and something that I can continually strive and work for. I believe that if we live worthily the Spirit of the Lord will be able to dwell in us and comfort us with what ever we are going through. I have felt the presence of the Spirit many times in my life, and I know that his comfort comes when I have been living in such a way to be worthy of feeling his influence. The best ways I have been able to be able to feel the Spirit in my life is by: first praying unto God and asking him for the Spirit to be in me and be a part of my life. Reading and praying about the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ will bring the influence of the Spirit in my life. Also singing hymns unto God brings the Spirit into my life. and just living the gospel of Jesus Christ, will bring him as well. I have a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ because of all the times I have felt the love of Christ thorough the Spirit, and I believe that all who seek to live a life worthy of the Spirit will be able to feel him in their life too. And invite others to pray to know if Christ is real, and see if you can feel the Spirit testify to you that he is. (Moroni 10:4-5, Book of Mormon) I also believe our life is a journey to Christ, we should always get closer to Christ be doing what he asks us to do, we won't ever get to a point where we are done getting closer to him. Life is a process.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live as Christ would live if he were living my life. I try to look out for others and help them be happy by talking to them and being their friend; by being "genuinely interested in them." I enjoy reading all books of Scripture that we have and believe it to be the word of God, and that if we follow the Scriptures then that will be our pathway back to our Father in heaven. I attend my Church services and strive to live the council that my Church leaders are inviting us to live. I also try to follow all that our current prophet, Thomas S. Monson, has received revelation for us to live. I believe that he is called of God, and that the Lord, Jesus Christ gives commandments for us to follow through his called prophet President Monson. I also will be serving a mission, to help make know the gospel of Jesus Christ, to people who may have never heard of it, which if they accept: I believe will make them happy. I live my faith like it is my life; which I believe living my faith will give me eternal life in the kingdom of my father.
