Hi I'm Levi

I'm a musician, an avid reader, a soccer player, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I recently took a break from my studies to serve an LDS mission in Russia. I love playing soccer and ultimate, and running, too. I love music- listening to it, singing along with the radio, whatever. I play the piano, organ, and cello, and also like to sit down with a good book for a couple of hours and just read.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the covenants I have made with God, because of the miracles I have seen, and because of the peace that comes to me when I am striving to be obedient. I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for which I am eternally grateful. When I was 8, I chose to be baptized and confirmed a member. When I was 12, I received the Aaronic Priesthood. When I turned 18, I received the Melchizedek Priesthood and made covenants in the Holy Temple. These covenants define much of my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I have seen people (including myself) change in ways that are amazing. I have received answers to prayers. A miracle is a visible manifestation of an invisible power, and I've seen them. When I am diligent in my callings, in my thoughts and words and deeds, when I seek to draw closer to God every day, there is a peace that comes that is unique and irreproducable by any other means. When I seek to receive my own testimony of a principle, I know I can seek confirmation by the power of the Spirit of God. Such are a few scattered, semi-coherent reasons why I'm a Mormon, but it really comes down to this: I know it is right and true and amazing, and I want others to know it, too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remembering. I try to remember to say my prayers, read my scriptures, or any other number of things. I remember other members of our congregation and what I can do for them, especially as I seek to teach others the Gospel on my mission. I remember God's eternal love for me and you, and the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ. I remember to repent (because I certainly need it!) and to ask for help. I remember to give thanks. And by remembering these things, I align my will with God's, and that's the whole point. Of everything.
