Hi I'm Logan Hamling

I am from Bozeman, Montana. I love the outdoors and love to share great experiences with others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Montana for about fifteen years. During those fifteen years, more than half of them have been spent in the mountains. I love the outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, shoot guns, atv, dirt biking, hiking, cliff jump, camping, skiing, anything outside. I recently moved to Provo, Utah to help me prepare for a mission. Prior to my move to Provo, I wasn't very active in the church, but within the past year, have found out for myself that the church is true and is absolutely where I need to be. I have had many horrible things happen this last year. I cant help but think that a lot of what has happened, has happened to make me think negative thoughts towards my goal of staying strong to my church. I love the church and nothing will make me change my mind about the truthfulness of the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

Just this past year, I have been coming to church, and striving to serve a mission. Other than this past year, my previous years were something I call my "darker years". I was inactive and doing things I shouldn't have been doing. I was doing this for the past eight years or so. During these eight years, I was never truly happy. It was almost like I couldn't feel as happy as I should have been. I wanted to change that. I always had the thought in my mind that it was the gospel that was missing but I kept telling myself that couldn't be it, because I didn't want it to be what was missing. About a year ago, I had the idea of moving to Provo, Utah. I told people I was going to move but never thought I actually would. About a week before I was going to move I started flipping out. I did not want to move. But something kept pushing me towards my move. It was amazing. It was almost like the Lord was moving me without me even knowing. I got to Provo and it hit me that I had moved. I hadn't even realized I moved. I can't help but believe the Lord moved me. I know that God has a plan for everyone. And each of them is different. Some may have to go through a certain hard time, or trial before they realize what they are meant to do, whereas others might just get the feeling naturally. I know that Heavenly Father will forgive anyone. I have felt his forgiveness and atonement in my life. After I had been forgiven and started attending church again, that missing part of happiness was in my life. I know this gospel is true. I have seen both sides, that without the gospel, and that without. There is no way I can argue that it is not true. Knowing both sides has been somewhat of a blessing for me because with knowing both sides, the truthfulness of this gospel is so much more obvious for me. I am so thankful for my choices. I pray that more will come unto Christ and know te truthfulness of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I have recently received my mission call. I am called to serve in the Tennessee, Nashville mission. I am so excited! I have been preparing myself to be a missionary daily. I try to serve others as much as possible. I notice that when I serve others, I am naturally a happier person. When there are scout camps, I volunteer to go and help out to try and be a good example. I am thankful for these opportunities because it helps me serve, and I learn a lot from theses experiences.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Logan Hamling
Mormons are some of the most service based people I have ever come across. We are constantly searching for different ways to help others. We love to help anyone and everyone! Missionaries of our church go out and teach people about the gospel of Jesus Christ which helps the people being taught in tremendous ways. Show more Show less
