Hi I'm Landon Whitesides

I like to sing and write music, I go to school at BYU-Idaho and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite things to do is create, it can be whatever but usually it has to do with music. I have been involved with music since I was just a kid and I have always loved the influence that it can have both in my life as well as the lives of others. I also love people. I love to talk to people and discuss their lives with them. I love to listen to peoples stories and hear about their adventures. I believe its a good way to make wise decisions; by listening to others and seeing their perspective on things. I Lived in Brazil for two years where I got to work with people all day, everyday and I loved it. I've always enjoyed making people happy because it makes me happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that god restored the true and full gospel upon the earth and I believe that it was restored through Joseph smith who in turn established the "Mormon" church" or that church with the true and full gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving g to help others. I believe that all that Christ did was based on the principle of service and serving god. I try to little things like giving people rides as they are walking down the street or open a door for someone. I try to serve those who are closest to me as well. I try to listen intently to my fiancé and do things that will let her know I love her. I wrote a letter to my mother once to let her know I love her. It was a good way for me to serve her. That's how I live my faith.
