Hi I'm Lucas

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a highschool graduate from a small town in Saskatchewan where I enjoyed playing nearly every sport available to us, namely volleyball and basketball. For the past year since my graduation, I've worked at an electronics store to save up because I'm currently getting ready to serve as a missionary for the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I live in a part-member family, where my mother became a convert to the church several years after marrying my father. She taught me the fundamentals of the gospel and encouraged me to attend church with her weekly. In my mom I always saw a happiness that my dad lacked; one that I now understand comes from living righteously and having a conscience free from guilt through repentance and resultant forgiveness. I love my dad, but he just doesn't have the same spiritual presence I can feel with my mom. I decided to live the principles that I had been taught and to study out of the scriptures and find out for myself whether what I'd been taught was true. I know now through sincere scripture study and prayer that the Book of Mormon is an authentic work, containing the testimony of the ancient Americans who received God's word here, just the same as it was given in Israel. I believe that this is Christ's church, restored in its entirety to the earth in modern times through his chosen prophet Joseph Smith. I believe that our current prophet, Thomas S. Monson was called by God to head the church and receive inspiration concerning the members of the church as well as the whole earth in this day and age. I love the church and even though I'm not perfect, I know that doing my best is all I can be asked to be able to return to my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I attend my regular church meetings as well as an institute of religions class every week to help me learn more about the scriptures and church history. At church I serve as the ward chorister, conducting the music. It's not a calling that comes with a ton of responsibilities, but it's helped me gain a better understanding of how the ward operates and an appreciation for the smaller jobs that simply need to be done. This is the Lord's church, and as such it is to be well organized and efficient. Whether we're asked to conduct the music, teach small children or to be the bishop of the ward, we all have a work to do. I'm happy to do whatever the Lord would ask of me.
