Hi I'm Lawton

I grew up in Florida. I am happily married with two children and currently serve in the Armed Services full time.

About Me

Things I enjoy most is saving money and spending time with my wife and kids. Its not always easy for me to naturally spend time with them so I make it a point to take the time out and do it. When I do this it starts out hard but I find myself enjoying it the more I do it. I enjoy searching for Treasure on the side of the road on my spare time. Some of us throw things away, I collect it up and make it nice again and sell it or donate to someone who is in need. I guess its a hobby of mine that comes very naturally. I like video games as long as it does not interfere with things that matter most to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in the plan that was laid out for us by our previous Prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have lived a life of no boundaries and thought that it was what was right. I felt that I was ok and doing everything right but I was blind to what was really happening. I was not happy and not complete. I have went to many other churches to help me cope with my sinister ways and it worked partly but it was not enough. I always felt a gap that was missing in my life, once I got married I still did not want to see the truth because it was much easier to do that. One day I knew what I needed to do and since then I have been working towards the plan that the church has given me. I have recieved nothing but blessings and pure happiness in my home. I am Mormon because I believe in in to be true with out a doubt. I have seen many blessings because of it. I learn more and more each day and I am so grateful to have realized how empty I truly was.

How I live my faith

We attend Church on Sunday no matter how much we would rather be doing other things because it prepares us for the week to come. I believe in supporting the missionaries of the church. I do things to support the Soldiers who are members that are in training and can't take part in our Sunday meetings. I work with the married Missionary couple who are assighned to the post to get the Troops on and off post on certain sundays. The most important thing is to always continue to move forward and not get discouraged and just simply give up. I Keep an open mind and open heart. I teach my family to help others and give to those in need. My family has also taught me alot and I am so greatfull for the LDS church and all the doors it has opened for us.
