Hi I'm Layne

I am a missionary a football player an animal lover and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am number seven of eleven children, I was born in Utah but was raised in Arizona. I love playing football and hope to play again soon.I love just playing around and hanging out at a at a buddies house. I love to get massages too!!! I love animals all types but I would have to say that cows are my favorite. I love my family I would say I am a family man. Right now I am serving a mission in Chile and am loving every bit of it. That sums me up pretty well. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found out for myself that it is what God wants me to be. I have had many times in my life that I have strayed from the Teachings of the Church and have decided to do it my way, however when I did my way I felt alone and simply was not happy. I have read the Book of Mormon and Have prayed to know the Truth of it. I have prayed to know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet and I received the Answer..HE HIS. I asked with a real desire to know and I asked with intent to act on the Answer that I received having faith in Christ that my questions will be answered. And they were. I am a Mormon because I wasn't happy being anything else. Its a happiness that overcomes all sorrows.

How I live my faith

Well I show my faith to all people by serving as a missionary. I have left my home and family for two years so I can come and serve my brothers and sisters in Chile. I know when I serve my fellow man I am serving God. I do what I can to bring happiness into there lives. Because that is what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints is all about...Happiness!!!!!

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Mormon Church services are very nice. It takes place in a very reverent setting like most traditional Churches are. We have people give us sermons and teach us just like any other church. And the music is beautiful!! We use an organ or a piano to accompany us in our hymns so we can maintain that reverence and it just makes you feel peaceful. Visitors are welcome to come and to participate in our Church Services in fact not only are they welcomed, they are invited and encouraged by the Church to come visit, so they can experience that peace for themselves.  Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

YES!!! That is what is amazing about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, We can be together as a Family for ever. I cant imagine not having my family, How sad would that be? Families can be eternal and that joy can be eternal. This is just another glorious part of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What a sweet happiness it brings into my life. Show more Show less
