Divine Perspective: Seeing the Bigger Picture
The beauty of the gospel is that it provides us with valuable insight into how things “really are”, without the distortions that mortality often creates. If we truly understood and believed, for instance, that we were sons and daughters of divine parents with the ultimate destiny to become like them, it would have a huge impact for the better, on how we see ourselves and others.
Bio – Dan Fuller grew up in Granada Hills, California where, as a teenager, he met the girl who would later become his wife at a stake dance. He attended UCLA for a year and then left school to serve a full time mission in Venezuela from 1974-1976. A year after returning from his mission, he married to his wife Diana and resumed his studies, graduating from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in history in 1979, and later from BYU with a law degree in 1982.
Dan and Diana have six children and many more grandchildren.
Dan has served as Elders Quorum President, High Councilor, Bishop, and as a member of the Stake Presidency in the Santa Margarita Stake. He currently teaches Gospel Doctrine in his ward, is a member of the Stake Sunday School Presidency and teaches a popular Single Adult Religion Class in Mission Viejo.
