Hi I'm Luke

I love piano and singing, and I am a happy mormon!

About Me

I'm a music man. I've been playing piano and singing since... well... forever. I love the thrill of performing, and it makes my day to make other people happy. I'm a tennis enthusiast and I enjoy a healthy competition.

Why I am a Mormon

I was 14 years old when I read the Book of Mormon, start to finish, for the first time. I remember being glued to it's pages, not being able to put it down, because I felt as though God was speaking to me through this book. I knew then, as I do now, that the Book of Mormon is a true book, written by true prophets who were inspired by God. The Book of Mormon taught me about Jesus Christ. I'm a mormon because I've chosen to follow Jesus Christ, and I know that He guides this church.

How I live my faith

For me, there is no greater opportunity to live my faith than to serve. Simply said, my faith in Jesus Christ leads me to help others. I serve in a variety of ways including participating in local and community service projects, temple service, and I've been known to write and sing songs for my friends who need a boost.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Luke
The missionaries will talk about the single most important thing that you will ever be a part of in this life: Your family, and how you can be with your family forever through Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Luke
While all Mormons aren't 'required' to serve missions, we answer the call of a living prophet of God who has asked all worthy young men between the ages of 18-26 to prepare for and serve 2 years of their lives in full-time service. I served for 2 years as a full time missionary, putting aside schooling and friends, paying my own way, and sacrificing a great deal. I wouldn't have done so without the conviction that this is what Jesus Christ really wanted me to do. The Savior taught, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Luke
John 7:17 reads, "If any man will do His will he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." In other words, you can know whether a doctrine, principle, or administration is of God by putting it to the test. Live it, and see if the promised blessings follow. Keep the commandments, and see if God's hand is revealed in your life. Read the Book of Mormon, pray about it, and receive that knowledge from God. He will send the Holy Ghost as a confirming witness that the course of action you've taken is true and right. Don't take my word for it, prove it for yourself! Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Luke
The funds that pay for and support the activities of missionaries represent sacrifices made by the missionaries themselves, their families, and members of the church. Before serving as a missionary, and I planned on doing so for years in preparation, I worked part-time jobs throughout high school and even did a morning paper route for a while in order to save up money to pay for my 2 year full-time mission. I also used my musical talents with piano and singing and I played at various venues, wedding receptions, etc, to save up additional funds. When the time came for me to serve, I had 2 options: I could use all that money that I had saved to pay for my college education (I was studying music at a university at the time) or I could put it all towards my mission. I'd already made up my mind years prior, so the decision wasn't tough. With additional help from family and friends, I consecrated my money, time, and talents to God, and served full-time teaching people about Jesus Christ for 2 years. Show more Show less
