Hi I'm Logan

I like to cook, I like to read, I'm a RPG gamer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young man that is a total nerd. The things i enjoy doing the most are; cooking, reading, baking, fishing, and camping. I also love to swim. I served in the Florida Tampa Mission. I am a very out going person when i want to be but am shy when talking to new people most of the time. I love to be around people and to talk with them, but i also enjoy some quiet time by my self some times.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon due to the people i meet, the things I see, and the History I read. Through out my short life I have seen many different aspects of life, and lived in a couple of them. However, there has always been a constant in my life that was not always present; The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. The church has not always been in my life though I have been a member since I was eight. Due to family complexes my family was not active in the church, but through the caring heart of a close friend and his family we started to come back to church. When i saw the kind and gentle faces of the other members of the church I knew that there was no where else i wanted to be. I began going to church with my mom and younger brother again when i was about twelve, and I have not left since no matter what trials befell me I always found comfort in the members of the church. Also since i have been on a mission I have gained a greater testimony, that is to say knowledge of the truthfulness of the doctrines of the church though i have always known it to be true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping all the people I meet in one way or another. As i do this i show love, charity and hope that i am doing well by my father above as well as my family here on earth. I also wish to be a doctor and learn the healers art so that i can help just that many more people throughout the world.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Logan
The Book of Mormon is written by many prophets through out time. These prophets were descendants of Jerusalem that had moved, by divine guidance and aid, to the Americas. Such prophets are Lehi Nephi Alma Mormon Moroni and many others. It was then hidden from the world in order to keep it safe till Joseph Smith Jr. found and translated it for all the world to read.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Logan
Through out time people have died without baptism. Whether it was through accident, lack of Knowledge, or by someone else making a wrong choice. However, if are Father in Heaven truly loves us and wants us all to be with him once more would he really say "Oh you were not baptized because you did not have a chance you will now have to live in Limbo for all eternity."? I personally can not believe that our Father would want that for us. I think he loves us so much that he would give us a way to have those that have passed on to gain the blessings of baptism and that way is by Proxy baptisms. Show more Show less
