About Me

My name is Daniel.  I am a Mexican-American.

I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  In other words, I am a Mormon.

I was born and raised Catholic but converted to Mormon when I was 17.  I had thought about joining since the missionaries first started teaching me the Gospel when I was 14.  I was very interested in religion at this age.  The first time I had contact with missionaries was when they visited us back in our old house when I was very young — less than ten years old.  But it all seemed so boring back then.  In my teens I was definitely addicted to religion, though, and researched a lot of religions but fell in love with the Mormon religion.

I stopped going to church in my early 20s.  About the time I turned 30, I started being jealous of Mormons.  I thought I couldn’t be Mormon for some reason.  Like I had sinned too much when I became inactive or something.

But I have recently started going back to church.  (Since July of 2014.)  They welcomed me with open arms.  I feel so blessed to be going back to church again.

I also went back to school starting June of 2013.  I finished in April of 2014 and graduated in August of that year.  I received a certificate in Medical Billing and Coding.  I am currently considering going back to school so I can get the job I really want — something in Health Information Technology.  But I have to get a job first so I can start saving up the money to go back to school.  I don’t think they will give me another student loan.  Besides, I have to pay back the loan I took to get my certificate.  I have a long way to go until I’m in a career I’m happy with.  Health Information Technology Managers are required to have at least a Bachelor’s degree.

Going back to school and going back to church has made me feel like I am moving forward in my life.  I believe that God only wants me to use technology for religious purposes.  So this blog is my excuse to use a computer!  It’s mostly going to be about religion but I might let myself write things about life in general from time to time.

I currently live at home with my parents and am looking for a job.

UPDATE: I live in Glendale now with two roommates.  One is a former smoker who is inspiring the other and I to give up the habit for good!
