Hi I'm Layton Bird

Hey im layton, I'm a full time student in Idaho, I love to run and climb and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to run, swim, climb, play ultimate frisbee and soccer, and just be active. I'm a biology student ultimately working towards obtaining a doctorates in Physical Therapy. I grew up with four sisters, spent two years in Neuquen argentina where i tried to serve the people and lead others to have faith in Christ, and I enjoy spending time with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

Despite having been born in the church, i came to know for myself that this is the Church God established through His son Jesus Christ. I felt the Spirit of God witness this to me on many occasions as i tried to live the principles and standards that the church encourages and defends, and as i read the bible and the Book of Mormon, (a book of scripture, a second witness that Jesus is the Christ); and as i prayed to know if the man who's accredited with establishing the Church really inspired by and given power from God, to do so. I know it's the church of God! It makes me very happy to know it, even when life's tough.

How I live my faith

I help the men in the congregation set goals and continually strive to draw closer to Christ. This includes helping them on a one on one basis overcome struggles in their life, as well as working with them as a group to serve others and the community. In addition I'm assigned to assist and serve a small group of members in whatever way i can.
