Hi I'm Elder Luke Knaphus

Middle of 10 kids, with 2 loving parents. I'm an athlete, outdoors-man, and a country boy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

You can usually find me outside in the yard working or I'm hanging out with my siblings. I initially grew up in northern Utah, but my family moved to Central Utah where we've lived ever since. I grew up in a loud/energetic home, around animals, and a love to be outside, and that love has never left. my siblings and I grew side-by-side, and we've always been super close in friendship with each other. I've been involved in athletics from the age of 7. my parents and siblings have supported, believed, and encouraged me to follow my dreams and work hard to achieve them. I've played baseball, football, wrestling, track & feild, and was involved in martial arts for 8 years. I love playing and following sports, although my family doesn't follow sports. The outdoors is my favorite playground, and I want to explore as much as I can. I love rock climbing and repelling with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my life I've struggled with problams that have taken some serious repentance. Along side with repentace I've grown to love and know God. I bear my testimony that Jesus Christ is our savior and he fulfilled the atonement for us because he loved us, and that the God the father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are all seperate beings, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who restored the gospel upon the earth.

How I live my faith

I'm serving a full time mission in Minnesota Minneapolis Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints.
