Hi I'm Landon Rogers

I am a Colorado Native and I love the outdoors and I am a Mormon

About Me

Currently, I am serving a two year mission for the LDS Church. In high school I loved football, basketball, participating in different school clubs and attending church activities. I love being in the outdoors whether I am hiking or snowmobiling. I just finished my freshmen year of college and I am planning on studying Business Management.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all of my life, however, that does not mean that I have been converted to the gospel my whole life. There where times where I struggled and finally I had to come to know for myself that this church was more than just "something good," I wanted to know if it was true. It did not come to me all of a sudden, but after reading the Book of Mormon with real intent and learning more about the prophet Joseph Smith I felt the power of the Holy Ghost work on me. It was not a mere feeling of happiness but a sense of enlightenment and power that came over me. I was able to see how far I have come since I last questioned my beliefs and how much I have grown in happiness and spirituality. Looking back now i have realized that I always knew but there was a part of me that did not want to know, but because of the tender mercies of the Lord I have been able to receive revelation for myself that it is true and I know that all of God's children can know if they ask with real intent. The reason I live the way I live as a Mormon is because I see the blessings that come from keeping the commandments and following the Gospel. I know that my older brother Jesus Christ died for me and that He loves me. I know that God lives and loves us and has created a plan that allows us to return with Him with our families forever. The prophet Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and the Book of Mormon is true. I have come to know of these truths for myself and so can many others.

How I live my faith

"What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?" (James 2:14) Because of my faith and testimony I actively serve in my church and that is part of the reason I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love my Savior and I know that to show my love is to serve my fellow man. I love being able to serve and help spread the word of God to those who desire to know it. I have a firm faith in my Savior Jesus Christ and I know that he died for me because he loved me that much. Through Him I can return to live with my heavenly Father and I want others to have this knowledge.
