Hi I'm Logan Castagno

I'm 19. My life is all about living my dreams and helping others do the same. I love exploring. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and graduated from high school in 2012. Right after I graduated I flew to Alaska for the summer where I worked as a housekeeper and explored the wild Alaskan land. I love how free that place is, its acceptable to not wear makeup and everyone loves everyone. I have done one semester of college, and my major is horticulture. I chose that major because I want to be around plants forever. Being in nature is where I feel closest to God, and I never ever want to be far from him. When I return from my 18 mission I will continue with my college education! I come from a family of seven kids. I love big families so much! I am very excited to have a family of my own in the future. I will teach my babies to love life. I want to serve in orphanages, teach children English, build schools, and just do whatever I can to further the work of the Lord and gain my own experiences. I want to get to know as many of His children and geographical masterpieces as I can before I leave this lovely world. I love anything leopard print and I adore the color gold. I desperately love maps, plants, and fish (the kind that live in tanks:), all of these things inspire me to become the person that Heavenly Father wants me to be. They make me happy, and are pure creations that have not been polluted by the filth of the world. I love sunlight, bridge jumping, my scriptures, journal, camera, family, summers, almond coconut milk, and laughter so much. I believe that every day is a gift from God.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it makes me happy, and my life is simple because of it. Also because it is true. I have faith that it is the exact church that Jesus Christ established on this earth. This is the only church that has the same priesthood that Christ had and gave to His apostles. Through ordinances of the priesthood such as baptism, we can return to live with God again.Through this gospel we can be with our families forever and experience joy now and for eternity. The Lord has his hand in everything that I do. Every day I feel His love for me, and I know that He listens to my prayers. I have an absolute knowledge that God lives. He took the time to create every person in his own image. I know that He loves me with the most pure form of love that is possible. I know that His son, Jesus Christ, created this amazing world. Every grain of sand, every breeze, drop of water, plant, and animal was thoughtfully formed by Him. This gospel has changed my eyes. I see everything as a heavenly creation that is meant to be here. I have so much love for my Savior and know that through Him, all things are possible. I know this gospel is true, and I want everyone else to come to that same knowledge. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, and is another testament of Jesus Christ. I love the gospel, and for the rest of eternity I will strive to spread its happiness to every soul.

How I live my faith

I have always enjoyed sharing the gospel with others and living the way that Christ wants us to. right now i am serving an 18 month mission for this lovely church! I am serving in the Florida, Tampa msission and i love it all so much. being a missionary is such hard straining work. every day we get denied by people but also we get to teach beautiful people that accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. This gospel is one of pure joy. It has the answers to all of lifes questions! i enjoy so much being a representative of Jesus Christ at all times, and wearing His name on a badge over my heart. I live my faith by applying the Saviors teachings to myself and helping others do the same. What joy it brings!
