Hi I'm Kelvin Landon

I was born in Michigan. I moved to Utah. I have a BIG family. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to draw. I love to work out. I love using my strength to help others. I love making new friends. I love working with others. I love it when I am able to get people to laugh so hard, they have malk come out of their noses. I love doing the heavy-lifting/physical work. I love standing up for others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I've always attended church, except for the times I was sick in bed. I remember how excited I was when I turned 8, then I could be baptized, and be an official member of the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actually doing what I've been commanded to do. It's kinda like homework, you take it home and you do it. Only, it's not because you have to do it, it's because you want to do it. It's your choice to live the gospel or not.

What is being a Mormon like?

Kelvin Landon
Being a Mormon is like the greatest thing that will ever happen to you. If ever you join, you will be forever glad that you did. Because there's a certain feeling that you get when you join the church. It's like that "warm fuzzy feeling" that you get inside, times a billion. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

The reason for that is because, The Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion. The people outside our church think that's what we worship, so they called us "Mormons", and the nickname has stuck with us ever since. Show more Show less
