Hi I'm Dan

Lucky husband of 25 years and a fortunate father of five boys. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A lucky husband of 23 years and a fortunate father of five boys.

Why I am a Mormon

The Lord answered my prayer about the First Vision of Joseph Smith, Jr., the restoration of the priesthood and the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I know Joseph Smith saw God, our Eternal Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. I know the priesthood authority has been restored to the Earth. I know the Book of Mormon is scripture.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith all day, every day — sometimes hour-by-hour — through prayer, scripture study and living the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Dan
Members of the Church are often referred to as "Mormons" because of our belief in The Book of Mormon, a record of God’s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. We consider The Book of Mormon to be a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible which contains, as does the Bible, the fullness of the everlasting gospel. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Dan
The priesthood is the authority to act in the name of God. Through the priesthood, worthy male members of the church serve their families, their congregations and their local communities. Show more Show less
