Hi I'm Landon Schofield

I am from Mesa, Arizona. I love math, science and learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I am majoring in Chemical Engineering because of my love of math and science. I hope to graduate from there and then go on to get an MBA. I am currently home for the summer preparing to serve a mission in Seoul, South Korea. I'm so excited to go and serve the people of Seoul and spread this gospel and happiness that it inherently brings. I love learning of any type and pretty much any subject. College has been an amazing place to learn so much. I swam in high school and although I am currently not on a swim team I still have a love for the sport. I am an avid Psych and Big Brother fan.

Why I am a Mormon

If I would have been asked this question about two years ago, I might have said it was because I was born in the church. I had parents who made sure I was in all the right places at all the right times. One day, I asked myself: why am I still a member? Why does this gospel and His church matter to me? And so I began some soul searching. Through all that I kept coming to church and living the standards of the gospel. I then realized that I went to church because it kept me happy. I felt so happy, so warm, so fulfilled from living the gospel and being a member of the church. I know those feelings I had came from God. I'm so grateful for this gospel in my life. I'm eternally grateful for God's son Jesus Christ. I know that he knows me probably better than I know myself. I know he experienced it all for me. This knowledge has fueled my testimony and I think answers pretty well why I'm Mormon.

How I live my faith

As I went to college I served in my ward as an Executive Secretary to my bishop. I this calling I was able to schedule appointments for the bishop and his counselors, and, since we were in a student ward, I participated in helping decide who got what calling in my ward. However, the most rewarding part of this calling was getting to know everyone in the whole entire ward. I got to know them individually as they came in for interviews or to be extended a calling or set apart. I truly learned to love every single one of my fellow ward members. The calling that I loved most of all was teaching the little children in my ward. They all were so sweet and innocent and to teach them the truths of the gospel was such a rewarding experience. I loved it. For as much as I was teaching them, they taught me so much about myself and about them that I could not even put into words. My faith is an inherent part of me now because of the various ways I have served within my church.
