Hi I'm Levi Wilkes

I have 4 sibilings and the two greatest parents. I love to stay busy and have fun. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving on the Lords mission in Long Beach California. I attended BYU and love learning about the miracle of the human body, it has always intrigued me and has led me to wanting to become a doctor. I love spending time with my family whether it is working or hanging out, it is always a good time. I can search out Family History all day long, it is one of my favorite past times to do. I love to sing, play, and compose music. Currently my forte is piano, but i play other instruments and use computer programs to write a mixture of techno/dance music. I love to dance and enjoy glow sticking. My favorite sports include soccer, tennis, cross-country, cycling, and snowboarding.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know that the Gosple of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I have seen the Lords hands in my life. I have seen how he has blessed me with his tender mercies . I have seen how he takes every oppurtunity to teach me something new, or reteach me if nessesary. I have seen how he has listened to me and my desires and has helped me find the joy, peace, and happieness I need. I have felt His infinte and eternal love for me. I enjoy no greater blessing then Him allowing the Holy Ghost to be my constant companion. I know that it is through atoning sacrifince of Jesus Christ that I am forgiven and saved, and then given the chance to be able to live again with my Father in Heaven in his Celestial Glory. He lives, I know He lives, and He loves me:)

How I live my faith

I am a firm believer of living what you believe. Faith without works is dead. I have a strong desire to help those who are in need, no matter how big or small. Some of my greatest joy comes from helping others become happier with my help. I could ask for no greater blessing then for everyone around me to be happy. It is an easy fix to reach out to someone, and brighten at least one day for them. Christ is my supreme example, it is through him that I find my happieness, and He has tugaht me to do the same for others. I find the more I humble myself and the more I pray and rely on the Lord, the more oppurtunites come for me to serve others, and the easier it becomes to serve them.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Levi Wilkes
The greatest ways that I am able to know my Father in Heaven better and draw closer to Him, is obeying His commandments, keeping my covenents with him, and serving others. Everything that is good comes from our Father in Heaven, and by living His standard I can see his goodness. By keeping true to my word and covenents I have formed a stong relationship with my Father allowing me to better communicate with Him through prayer, and allowing me to recieve his promised blessing therefore learning more about him and His love. Heavenly Father wants to give us everything He has, it is because He loves us so much. To learn about Him we need to become like Him. To love as he does we need to serve, it is through service that true happieness and joy comes. This happieness and joy is Him. When we feel it, we feel Him. This is how I come to know about my Father in Heaven. Show more Show less
