Hi I'm Daniel

Raised in the mountains of Colorado, I've grown to love the outdoors! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Provo, UT but I don't claim it has my true. I was raised for the majority of my life in Colorado, in a small town outside of Denver nestled amongst the conifer trees of the Rocky Mountains. I have four brothers and two loving and wonderful parents. To be honest, my life from the beginning has been very blessed. I can't say that we lived a life of luxury, but life was comfortable. Growing up in the mountains meant that seeing friends was something of a more rare occasion, so we as brothers became best friends. We played outside in the trees, dug holes, played army, those sorts of things. To this day, I can say that I wouldn't have my childhood be any other way. I love my family, and cherish the memories of my childhood. Now I'm older and recently married to a wonderful young daughter of God! She has been such a blessing in my life! She continually makes me want to be better so I can live up to her love and respect. I look forward to our lives together forever, and the coming family we will start.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for many reason! To begin, I'm Mormon because I was born to Mormon parents. My family on my mother's side has been Mormon for many generations, so it runs in the family. My father's parents were converts to the church but my father himself was raised Mormon. Growing up, we went to church each Sunday and that is all I knew. I won't complain or say that's a bad thing, because it was always a great experience. As a child we would sing and learn about Christ and our Heavenly Father and their love for us. I learned from a young age how to live and love as Christ would have us. I'm still working on the application, but I know that what I learned is true. As I got older, I had more and more questions about the faith of my parents and knew that I had to know for myself if what I had been raised to believe was true or not. I read my scriptures and prayed often to find my direction. Look so many before I followed the advice of John and asked God if the Mormon faith was the right faith. The answer never came as a shock and aw experience but a gentle reminder of what I had learned growing up and the many experiences that through out my life God had shown himself in. The spirit of God has been subtle in my life but upon reflection can be seen and felt, which to me is a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel, as taught in the Mormon Church.

How I live my faith

I attend church as often as possible. Admittedly, it's not always easy when it's at 9 in the morning and it does take a lot of effort to get up and ready for church. With that said, however, every time I go, I never ever regret it! The spirit is always in abundance! The weekly reminder of who I am - a follower of Christ - always helps me to rededicate my life to living the teachings of the Gospel as found in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Sunday's remind me that I'm not just a Christian on the weekends, but need to be a Christian throughout the week, and always! I'm in no way perfect, and will never pretend to be! I have my weaknesses and strengths as any man. I strive to live worthy of God's love and Christ's atonement. Though they give these things to us with payment or price on our part, my love for them can, in my opinion, only be shown to them by living a life that is in agreement with their teachings.
