Hi I'm L. Todd

I'm a Mormon because I love God and I love the gospel.

About Me

I love reading the scriptures and talking to God and I really enjoy exercising and having deep conversations with friends who know the gospel and who love our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I like doing Yoga and meditating so that I can feel the spirit and be physically fit.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be and it is where God needs me to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my actions, words and deeds because I know that as I strive to do the right thing, to be obedient to His will and to turn to Him I will be able to come closer to Him as I do His will and not my own. I get up each and every day with the knowledge that our Heavenly Fathers loves me, knows me and cares about me. The deepest desire of my soul is to love as our Heavenly Father does and I will do whatever it takes to get that gift of Christlike love for the benefit of God. I draw closer to God through prayer and seek to understand His will for me and seek to do it.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

L. Todd
In heaven we had a family and family is important to us because we want what God has. Family brings us closer to God and defines who we are and who we are going to become. Even if we were raised in a family that wasn't loving or as Christ-like it is important that we should go through the experience so we can know that the chain needs to be broken so we can create an eternal family that we want to create.

Who was Joseph Smith?

L. Todd
Joseph Smith was a god-fearing man who loved God and who did whatever was necessary for him to show his love for God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Joseph was a man who communed with Heavenly Father because he cared more about what He thought than the world thought. He did not have an easy life like some people think he did, he endured many hardships that would tear a man soul's apart but because he loved God he stood his ground faithfully and stood by his witness and testimony which he sealed with his blood. Joseph Smith made friends, eternal friends, with everyone even the ones that turned away. He still loved them and considered them his friends forever. I know Joseph was a Prophet of God because his spirit has borne witness to me that he is and will be forever and God knows he is because no man could go through what he went through and still love God and not be a Prophet as he claimed. I love Joseph Smith because he had the strength and means to restore the everlasting gospel to this world and bring us back to Christ. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

L. Todd
The purpose of life is to gain eternal life and to become more like our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ so that we may return to live with them again. I have faith in my soul that this is true. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

L. Todd
Because we care about everyone's soul and everybody deserves to be saved and we believe that the means to do that is through baptism and entrance into the Kingdom of God. Show more Show less
