Hi I'm Lance

I live in Idaho. I love to play the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 years old. I am serving a two-year mission in India. I have two brothers and three sisters, all them are married. I love theatre. I love to play the piano. I've been playing since I was eight years old. I have participated in several recitals and one honors recital. Some of my other hobbies include reading, playing video games, hanging out with friends, swimming, dirt biking, and spending time with my family. After my mission, I want to major in Music Education-Instrumental at BYU-I, Then I want to get my Masters and PhD at WSU. I want to get married in the temple. I want to have four kids and go skydiving before I die.

Why I am a Mormon

Mormon missionaries teach that faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end is the only way to find true happiness. They teach about a book called the Book of Mormon that testifies that Jesus is the Christ. It adds another testimony to the Bible. If you further read the Book of Mormon, you will realize that change and repentance is a daily thing. Through my life and experiences, both negative and positive, I have some to realize that true happiness only comes through Jesus Christ and his Atoning sacrifice. I know that is true and that is why I am a Mormon. It provides a light that we can follow; a light that will never dim. I know who I follow, and why I follow Him. I love Him with all my heart, and I hope that you find the same joy that found through Him.

How I live my faith

Some say that faith is an action word. Some say that faith is just a belief. I would have to agree with both. In the Gospel of Jesus Christ, there are certain steps, or guidelines that, if followed, will lead you to true happiness. First is faith. Faith is good, yet hard to build at the same time. There is a scripture in the Book of Mormon that states "ye receive no witness until after the trial of our faith"(Ether 12:6). When we exercise faith by reading the scriptures, praying for forgiveness of our mistakes and sins, staying true to the commandments, we will experience the loving miracle of forgiveness. This will lead to a desire to keep that happiness that we experience through forgiveness by being baptized by the proper authority. Then we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, which guides our actions and gives us further joy. Then we endure to the end. Enduring to the end means living what you preach. If you believe you should do something, then you should do it. Of course we can't be perfect. That's why we have Jesus Christ. Through constant change and repentance, we can receive the full blessings and joy of the Gospel and we will find ourselves becoming more like our Father in Heaven.
