Hi I'm Levi Petersen

I'm a Mormon. I'm missionary. I'm a son, a brother, an uncle, and a friend.

About Me

I grew up in a small town with loving parents and two older sisters. I spent my days with family and friends having fun, working, and living life in general. After High School I was able to do a semester at College. And I am now serving a mission. As a missionary I teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As I have been teaching in Pennsyvania Philadelphi mission I have learned how much the gospel changes peoples lives, including my own, for the better. There is no where I would rather be right now.

Why I am a Mormon

If you had a question and wanted to know the answer to that question where would you go? If you wanted to know the truth you would turn to the source from whence it came. That is what I did. I wanted to know if God was real. If He was really my loving Heavenly Father. If Jesus Christ was really the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind and my own soul. If they really called Joseph Smith to be a prophet and restore the church of Jesus Christ with the power and authority given from God to the earth. How did I find the answer to these questions? I prayed and asked God the Eternal Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, if all those things were true. And I recieved a confirmation from Him that it is all true. He is there. Jesus is the Christ. Joseph was a prophet called of God. And the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the church and Kingdom of God on the earth. I testify that all may pray and ask God any question and He will answer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of Jesus Christ. As I try to be more like Him, to live His commandments, to help those around me, to love everyone, I feel myself draw closer to Heavenly Father. As I study my scriptures I see the example of those who have gone before me and I can learn from them how to act. As I pray I recieve direction from God on how I should act and recieve comfort in hard times. By doing the small and simple things I am asked to do I have seen my life change for the better and I have seen the lives of those around me change too. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a way of life, not just a set of beliefs.
