Hi I'm Landon

I grew up with bright red curly hair and I survived elementary school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am trying to keep the glimpse of my glory days playing soccer during the summers by playing a mens league, which ulimately is my exercise for the week. I am a dad of two years which luckily he got the best of my wife and mine's best features. (i.e. didn't receive my red hair, purely on a not-having-all-kinds-of- nicknames-in-school basis). I do enjoy my hair color now by the way. Last year I finished grad school and am looking for my next opportunity to learn. My wife loves to edit what I write so in school she was great to have around but writing this might not be the most pleasant experience with her over my shoulder. We have been married three to four years and still enjoy my time with her.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of this faith so to describe why I am a Mormon takes me to my past. My memory that propel me to continue with my faith start when I was in middle school. I loved it there and grew up in an environment where I was one of the only kids in the school to be Mormon. My classmates would mention to me why I always had a smile on my face, I really didn't know what they were talking about. There aren't too many mirrors in the hallway for me to check myself smiling. It wasn't until a few years later that I understood that the faith in Jesus Christ that I had accepted created a realization that whatever situation was before me I could have a positive outlook because I knew the Jesus was on my side if I chose to have him there. That was a start to a perception if I keep God's commendments I and my family will continue to be watched over.

How I live my faith

There are many opportunities to practice living what Christ taught (meaning service to others). I help organize the Bishop's time and try to maximize the time he has by setting up appointments for members to speak with him. To be honest he is much more organized than I but I am slowily learning to use computer organizational tools. That is just a side note but it is alot of fun putting in my creative input (if we can call me creative I do work with numbers all day) to form activities and helpfully enhancing the lives of members of the congregation.
