Hi I'm Landon

I'm a son, a friend, a student and a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an average guy. I am studying at a university here in Utah (though I'm from Arizona), and I hope to receive (someday) my degree in business. Two days ago I went snowboarding, which is my favorite winter passtime. I love music and play the violin, guitar, and piano. My family and my friends are everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because as I have grown up in this church, I have seen the Lord's hand numerous times as he whispers to me that it is true. I am a Mormon because I have received a personal distinct witness that this church is true. I was able to see many lives change for the better as they come to know that God has called a modern day prophet. I guess simply enough I am a Mormon because I want to be.

How I live my faith

I teach gospel lessons on sundays to other 20 something year old guys. I also work teaching spanish to new LDS missionaries for the first 2 months of their missions. I love to serve these groups and to participate in the many activities of my local congregation.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Our church's belief on this principle is often misunderstood. The Lord Jesus Christ was always a protector and advocate of women's rights, and our church is the very same. Sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father were created in His image, and each one has received special gifts and talents. A woman's motherly instinct could never be replicated. For this reason, the church as a whole encourages mothers to have and raise children, while the fathers' primary duty is to support and protect the family. When embraced this principle is truly a blessing. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

One of the special things about the mormon missionary is that he is strongly encouraged to save as much money possible to fund his own mission. Clearly family and friends are also able to contribute and certain programs in the church may help those families struggling financially. But it is truly a miracle that these young men and young women sacrifice so much only to receive spiritual experience and growth after. Show more Show less
