Hi I'm Daniel Rykowski

I was born and live in California. I love riding dirtbikes. I'm going to be attending BYU Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Daniel. I ride dirtbikes in my free time. I'm going to be attending BYU Idaho. In high school I did Wrestling, Track (Long Jump, Triple Jump, 100m Dash), and Football (Strong Safety and Fullback). I love a good challenge and the outdoors. I love dogs and snakes. I will be attending a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Anchorage, Alaska, speaking the Tongan language.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon since birth. My parents raised me in this gospel and I have discovered it's subtle beauties and have grown to love it. Everything I have been taught in this gospel has made sense and it's wonderful learning about Jesus Christ and God's whole plan of how we will be able to return to him in Heaven. I testify of the truthfulness of this gospel and of this church, I know my life is enhanced because of it, and I wouldn't want to be living any other way.

How I live my faith

I have been in some leadership callings in the church in various quorums and have been a Youth Activities Coordinator. I enjoy being able to be a home teacher for several families and I try to be active in all service related activities in the ward and stake.
