Hi I'm Levi

I'm a book reading nerd and a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church for my entire life. I am the youngest of 4, two sisters and one brother. I was and still am the kind of guy that would be perfectly happy stuck in a library of hours at a time, the kid that Read books that weren't required for school. Even though I enjoyed reading very much I also enjoy wrestling, I wasn't the best at it, it still taught me many important things. Some of those things and still that I have learned from Wrestling are hard work, practice makes perfect and how to work in a team. As graduation from High School got closer in 2010 the question emerged of where I should go to college. I pondered on where and took the question to the lord in prayer and counsel I received the impression that I should apply and go to BYU-Idaho. I learned much from that experience of going to School and being away from home, this has helped me as I am out serving the lord in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. I really didn't ever get into basketball at home, but one could say that it is a hobby of mine now.

Why I am a Mormon

No matter what anyone says being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a choice. When I was 8 yrs old I made the decision to be Baptized, as I was growing up I didn't appreciate being a member of the church like other people would, and in turn in some ways I started to lack in being close to Jesus Christ. For instance me and my family still went to Church and prayed together, by my personal prayer and my scripture study just wasn't happening, and eventually I arrived to the point of not knowing the church is true for certain. This cycle just continued all through High school, I still ended up doing the right kind of things, doing the stuff that I was assigned to do, home teaching with my dad; got that done every month, passing the bread and the water at church and Sunday, and preparing to serve a mission, but I came to the point that I had to gain that knowledge of the truthfulness of the church for myself. It was at this time as I was going to college at Brigham Young University Idaho that I decided I needed to ask God if the Book of Mormon was really true. With increasing study and prayer I did arrive to the answer that It and the Church are true. A powerful answer came as I was reading the Book of Mormon as I was being trained as a missionary and that chapters that I was reading were Alma Ch. 32 to 34.

How I live my faith

hmm... in the past I haven’t had very many responsibilities in the Church; home teaching not that much of a big deal, just a matter of getting it done. It’s not a matter of being a Mormon, living it matters doing the things that you are expected to do and what you should do. Sometimes you can be told to do something that you know to be wrong, but have that desire to be the best that you can be keeps you on the path and making the right choices. Doing this and other things have lead me up to the point that I am at right now serving a mission, showing others how toi get on the path and live the gospel and stay on the right path.
