Hi I'm Robert Ryan Danford

About Me

I am in my late 20's. I live in Menifee California. I am in the Paloma Valley Ward. I have been married to my Wife for time and all eternity. We have 2 adorable children. My Son Jake and my daughter Catherine. I enjoy playing video games and playing the Piano. I have been working for the Riverside County Sheriff for 5 years. I am currently attending college again with a focus on foreign language. I plan on studying Spanish, ASL and German.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church a week after my 18th birthday. I come from a family that is not with the church. It was a bit of a struggle and I say that I did not REALLY have a true testimony until much after I was baptized. At my lowest point, when I was inactive and in no way following the gospel, I felt like no one could love me. But, like a smack in the face, the Holy Ghost came to me and showed me love and compassion. I knew. I knew right then and there the truth and still know to this day. Jesus is my savior. Heavenly Father is our God. Joseph Smith was a Prophet. We have a Prophet still today. This is my testimony, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I attend the Paloma Valley ward in the Menifee Stake in Menifee California. I am currently called as a Ward missionary. I love my ward and look forward to seeing new faces.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Robert Ryan Danford
As it states on the title of the book, The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. So many times I've heard that "Mormons only believe in The Book of Mormon" or "The Mormon Bible" as it is commonly called. The Book of Mormon is no more or less true than The New Testament or Old Testament. The Book of Mormon is a Testament of Jesus Christ as witnessed by the people of the American continent. I believe The Book of Mormon is absolutely true as much as I believe The New and Old Testaments are true. Show more Show less
