Hi I'm Daken

I grew up in New York. I love to run and play sports. I am studying Neuroscience and love the brain. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to run, especially in the mountains. I ran cross country and track in high school and my favorite event is the mile. I also love the brain because it is so interesting to me. I am currently in college pursuing a career in Neurosurgery. Recently I started skiing and it is my favorite thing to do in the winter. There is no feeling like flying down the mountain in soft powder. Finally, I grew up with horses, cows, chickens and pigs and they have taught me so many lessons.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that I have a Heavenly Father and that he loves me. I know that he has a plan for me to be able to live with him again. I can achieve that through following His commandments. It was not always easy to follow them but through prayer and reading the Book of Mormon I know that they are there to help me become like Christ and reach my potential. I am grateful for all that my Heavenly Father has given me and I show that be living his teachings in my life.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary for the church. I will be sharing the message of the gospel and Jesus Christ to the people where I am serving. As a missionary I will put aside school and jobs to solely proselyte for the church. I enjoy bringing the truths of this church to those who do not have them. Being a missionary has been a goal of mine since I was very young and I am so proud to be fulfilling my dream. I live my faith by bringing the knowledge I have of Jesus Christ to those around me.
