About Me

Hi my name is Luke. I am attending a College in Texas. I am an Athletic Training major. I like to play just about any sport though volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and tennis are my current favorites. I have been a Mormon all my life. I served a mission and loved every bit of the service. I love chilling with my friends and having good conversations with them about things that matter in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon all my life, but that doesnt mean I have been the best. I did what every other teenager does and just kinda did my own thing. It wasnt until I decided that I wanted to go on a mission that I started to change. I started reading the Book of Mormon and wanting to pray. I found a lot of things that I needed to change and I did. I am eternally greatful for answers to prayers. As I prayed to know the truth of the Book of Mormon I realized that I had one all along. That helped me a lot especially as I served a mission. Teaching and living what the gospel of Jesus Christ tells us to do has helped me become who I am now.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping all the people that I can. I do as much as i possibly can to work in the positions that i hold. I try to lead by example mostly to show people that there is nothing wrong with my faith.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

The mormon prophet today is a man named Thomas S. Monson. He leads this church the way the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ would want it to go. His way of life is service and wanting to find those that have strayed from the gospel path. He is a prophet of God that has come from an unbroken chain since the prophet Joseph Smith. I know this with all my heart and you can too! Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

 The first vision in the church is the time when God and Jesus Christ appeared to the boy Joseph Smith. This happened because Joseph was young and curious about the religions in his day. He searched and asked questions of the ministers as he was trying to find which church was right for him to join. He read in the bible a lot to find his answers because of the different answers he was getting from the ministers of the time. He finally found a scripture on prayer in James 15 and he took it to heart to ask God his question. So he went to be alone and prayed out loud and he beheld God the Father and Jesus Christ. They then answered his question of what church he should join. They replied that he should join none of them because none of them was their church that they set up. He was then called as a prophet to bring to pass the restoration of Christs' church here on this earth. Show more Show less
