Hi I'm Logan

I love basketball, I'm Celtics fan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 years old. I grew up in New England. One of 7 kids. I LOVE basketball, I'll play until I drop. I served a mission for the church in Colorado and I love the gospel so much! On my mission I was always asked why i would give up to years of my life and money from my own pocket to go on a mission. It's simple really, I'm sacrificing two years with my family so that other families can be together for time and all eternity. I do love my family and it was hard to do, but it was the most worthwhile thing I ever done. I am now engaged to a beautiful young woman who I love dearly. I am so blessed and I know it's because I live this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, kind of went through the motions for the most part...relying on the faith of my parents the majority of the time. But there was one point that changed everything for me while I was at college I took a religion class. The teacher gave me an assignment to read the Book of Mormon in two weeks. As I did so I got about 50 pages in and my heart sunk, and I felt a need to pray. I needed to know if this was real. So I did, and the feeling I got was beyond anything I can describe, It was subtle...yet I felt God's love for the first time, and I knew this was right. I'm a Mormon because I know it's true and because I want to live with my family for time and all eternity...

How I live my faith

I try the best I can, I slip, I fall...but Heavenly Father doesn't expect us to be perfect, he merely wants us to learn to rely on him and try our best.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

I think as a missionary I've been asked this question a lot, our Saviors grace is the only way we can acquire eternal life...but there is a plan that allows us to access his grace that Jesus Christ lays out for us. First is repentance, then baptism, then recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. Jesus said, "Not every man that sayeth unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of the father..." It shows that simply calling upon his name for his grace is not enough. We MUST do his will in order to accept our saviors grace. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

I'm not sure why family wouldn't be important to everyone. Family is where we find our greatest joys, our greatest sorrows, and our greatest love. I think this question is kind of backwards, I think typically people who care about their families most...naturally gravitate towards the principles this church offers. Who wouldn't want eternal life with those they care about most? Show more Show less
