Hi I'm Londyn

I'm a Colorado girl at heart... I have a huge family that I love dearly... and a retired BYU "swammer!"

About Me

I am going to be a missionary for this church for about 18 months. I will be serving in the Santa Rosa, California mission. With all the excitement that I'm feeling, I can't help but be a little sad to put my life on hold for a little while... and this is why; I have a great family, 9 siblings. My parents are divorced both remarried happily for time and all eternity. I swam for BYU for 4 years and enjoyed every minute of it... it was bittersweet to hang up the towel and suit but I am off to new adventures! I have great friends that have helped become the person I am today and have got me to this point (ready to serve a mission)! I am beyond excited to serve the people in California and excited to see what these next 18 months have to offer!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a high school where there weren't a lot of people that practiced the same faith as me. Many of my close friends would always ask me this exact question. In high school, I honestly didn't have an exact answer. I think I believed in it because mostly that's how I was raised. As I went to college, I found why exactly I am a Mormon; I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon, and there is so much power and truth in that small book. I am a Mormon because I am the happiest when I am keeping the commandments of the church. I am a Mormon because I have felt Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ's love over and over again. I am a Mormon because I prayed to God and asked if it was true. I am a Mormon because I know that with our beliefs, families can be together forever. I am a Mormon because our church teaches about love and service. I am a Mormon because Joseph Smith died because he wouldn't deny the truth of this church. I am a Mormon because of the atonement... Jesus died for all of my sins and I am forever in debt to him. I am a Mormon because I know that my redeemer lives! I am a Mormon because I know this Church is true!

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving the Lord for the next year and a half. I know that if I live by having faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, he will bless me and help me have a life full of happiness. Ever since I was little, I know I wanted to serve a mission. I always told my mom that when I grew up that's what I wanted my "career" to be... a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Although there were a couple of hiccups in my thought process to wanting to serve a mission. I put faith in the Lord to help me decide what steps I need to take in life to be as close to them as possible. A mission is one of them. I live my faith by serving other people. While serving others, I know I am trying to be Christ-like and it shows others how people from our faith act with others. Another way I live my faith is to just be happy. Everyone has always told me that I am a very happy person. Well, that is because I live my life with having faith in my Father in Heaven and my brother, Jesus Christ, I know that I am part of a great church that keeps my life in order so I can live with the people I love forever and return to Heavenly Father.

What is the Book of Mormon?

We believe the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the bible, but the Book of Mormon has more truth and stories that are added on from the Bible. It talks about when our brother, Jesus Christ visited the Americas. We believe and know that it was translated by Joseph Smith by the gift from Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
