Hi I'm Logan

I'm a singer. I'm a public relations student. I'm a swimmer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I admit that music totally rules my life. I am a member of my college's small, mixed choir and have worked my entire college career to gain entrance to it. Music lifts and inspires me. Besides that, I get an incredible adrenaline rush from performing; musical theater is one of my great passions. But I'm not just into performing arts! I also adore photography, swimming, running, cycling, camping, hiking, and volleyball. Oh yeah, and I am majoring in public relations. That's what is going to supplement all those other things.

Why I am a Mormon

While I may have been born into the Church and risen by parents who are also Mormon, at one point, I had to decide what I wanted in life. I tried to find happiness a few different ways but never did I find happiness like the Savior, Jesus Christ can offer in any of those other things. It is by living His teachings, taught in their purest form, that we can gain full, unadulterated joy. Oh, how I love it. I know the only church on the face of the earth that has the entire gospel, as God intends us to have it, is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is through this church that we can learn the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and by living it, we can find true happiness and joy in our lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be sure the light of Christ shines through my eyes and meets all those with whom I come in contact, whether that be at school, at work, at the pool, in theater, or simply some stranger at the grocery store. Independent of the location or person, I want to make sure I spread the happiness this gospel gives me. My spiritual foundation comes from three simple things: church attendance on a weekly basis, daily, personal scripture study, and personal prayers with my Heavenly Father.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Logan
Simple answer: yes. Expounded answer: Just as God needed to guide His people in ancient times, He needs to guide them today. If His children needed them then, why wouldn't they need them today? As much as I would like to believe it, I just don't think humanity has advanced to the point that we don't need guidance from the Divine. A prophet provides the means by which God can lead His people, as He reveals (communicates) the specific things He wants His people to do. The prophet does not take the place of Jesus Christ or Heavenly Father, but is rather their servant. He acts as a mouthpiece for Christ and God here on earth so we can better live the gospel in our lives and with our families. What a blessing it is in my life to have a man--Thomas S. Monson--who communicates directly with God and can lead and guide me in my life. I know we can be more in-touch with God's will if we follow His prophet's teachings about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
