Hi I'm Casey Layne

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a college student, studying musical theatre. I am a yoga instructor. I love adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

The book of Mormon has taught me how I can make my life here on this earth beautiful. It gives me guidance and puts everything into perspective. It is incredibly supportive, loving, and its teachings are consistent. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) reminds me that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father, who loves me and has wonderful blessings in store if I am willing to trust him and let his teachings guide my life. Our Heavenly Father loves and knows each of us by name. He is aware of our struggles, accomplishments, worries, questions, and needs. He has a perfect plan for us, and following his plan is the way to find ultimate joy. Part of that plan involves the beautiful and necessary Atonement, a remarkable gift that has been given to each of us. The book of Mormon has strengthened my testimony that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world and because of him and his atoning sacrifice, I can been forgiven for past mistakes and make it back to my loving Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ knows what it feels like to suffer or hurt. There is nothing you have felt that he has not. He is the perfect example, and yet we can relate to him in a special way since he has suffered for our sins and knows what our suffering feels like. The Book of Mormon teaches me how I can strive to be like my Savior, Jesus Christ. As I study the scriptures, pray, and listen to the words of our prophet, my testimony is strengthened and I am more sure everyday that this is the true church. I am Mormon, because it makes me happy. Following the teachings of the church helps me live a life full of meaning, peace, and happiness.

How I live my faith

By recognizing everyone as a child of God and working to treat everyone with the respect and love we all deserve. I am happy to talk or answer questions about the church and have spent a lot of time doing this recently, since I go to a school with very few Mormons.
