Hi I'm Devin Layne

I sing. I play Basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Sophomore in college, and enjoy playing LaCrosse, Basketball, Football; the out doors; and spending time with my family

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I continue to follow the gospel is because from years of study, prayer, and pondering I have come to know that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I find that the doctrines of the gospel make logic sense, and everyday I become more convinced of this.

How I live my faith

I regularly attend Church and the Temple. I also have enrolled every semester in a LDS religion class in college.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Devin Layne
No, while young men are encouraged to serve a full-time mission they are not required to, and those who do not will have the same opertunities to serve in the Church as those who have. Show more Show less

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Devin Layne
Temples in the Mormon religion play a important role in our path to exaltation. We make sacred covenants with our Father in Heaven there. They are a sacred place where we can find rest from the world and find peace and tranquility. Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Devin Layne
That is best answered with another question, why did Christ go to John the Baptist to be baptized? The reason is that The Lord knew that God would not accept the baptism of someone unless they had proper athourity from God. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Devin Layne
I know that through the marriage covenant that couples and families can live together forever if they are sealed by Priesthood Authority and obey the commandments of God. Show more Show less
