Hi I'm Levi

I love the outdoors. I love to backpack and travel. I constantly take things apart to see how they work. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Alpine, Utah. I’ve always been an adrenaline addict. You could regularly find me on the mountain snowboarding or riding motorcycles and Four wheelers. I love being outside, gardening, camping out in nature, and cooking. I graduated in Engineering from BYU, which is the same place my wife and I met. She is my adventure buddy. We love reaching for our dreams together. One of my favorite hobbies is building usable abstract art. It is my passion, and I hope that I can do it as a career someday. I love building things and being creative. I am intrigued by living off the land and having a home off the grid, so I day-dream about one day making that a reality.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I have read the Book of Mormon, and have found it to be truth. It is another testament of Jesus Christ, and is the evidence that our Heavenly Father gave us so that we could identify the fullness of His Gospel. I have prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true, and because of the answer I have received I also know that Jesus is the Christ and that there is a prophet of God on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I like to be proactive with my faith. There are many aspects of Christ’s gospel that I don’t understand yet, So I push myself to exercise faith and “experiment upon the word” as Alma instructs us in the Book of Mormon. I believe it is important to share what I know with others, so I spent 2 years after high school as a missionary in Houston Texas. I strive to build up those around me. I think that the best way to live your faith is by making strong habits that keep you immersed in following and doing Heavenly Father’s will.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

People will sometimes call a religion a cult if they feel its members are extremists who live outside the conventional society. A lack of understanding can make people feel that Mormonism is a cult because of our strong determination to follow the will of God and because of our Temples which can be misunderstood to be secret organizations. The reality is that anyone whose faith and life are in harmony with God are encouraged to attend the temple and make covenants with God. Only those living a worthy life are permitted to enter so then the Temple can be a place where the spirit of the Lord can reside. There is nothing being hid or kept secret, it is only kept sacred.
