Hi I'm Luke

I'm a husband. I'm a father. I'm a pharmacist. I grew up in Canada. I speak Spanish. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a lovely wife and together we have three beautiful daughters. My family is the most important thing in my life and I spend most of my time with them. I enjoy being in the outdoors to work or play. I grew up on a farm in Alberta, Canada. I enjoy vacationing and traveling to see different parts of the beautiful world that God has given us. I love to watch and participate in most sports but I would not say that I am particularly good at any of them. I enjoy a good book.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I am happiest when I am doing what God wants me to do. I grew up as a member of the church and through my life experiences I have learned that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that I can know what our Heavenly Father wants me to do by listening to the Holy Ghost and also doing what he has told the prophets in the scriptures and in our day. I feel close to my Savior Jesus Christ as I attend church and as I follow his teachings that I learn there. Living the teachings of the church and the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ makes sense to me because I have received so many blessings from our Heavenly father as I have tried to do so. As I attend church I grow closer to my Savior that I need because I need him to help me overcome my imperfections.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best person I can be. I try to do my best at whatever I am asked to do by my church leaders. I pray and study the scriptures. I help those around me however I can. I try to be a positive example to my children, those I interact with at church, and everyone I come in contact with. I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ and do what he wants me to do. Living the standards set by the church is not always easy, but it is worth it!

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by prophets that lived anciently in America. Much like prophets that lived in Jerusalem wrote down their teachings that are recorded in the Bible, the prophets that lived in America wrote down what God wanted taught to the people and their writings and teachings are found in the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon teaches us about Jesus Christ and his dealings with the people who lived anciently in America. Mormon was the name of one of the last of the prophets to write in the Book of Mormon. He gathered the writings of the prophets together and now the book bears his name. Show more Show less
