Hi I'm Luke Barton

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I have four siblings. I perform in two bands with my siblings and friends. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am six foot four. I love playing any kind of music and also play in two bands one with my good friends and another with my siblings. I love to motorcycle with my family throughout the year. I am the second youngest in my family out of five kids. I just graduated high school and I am going on my mission to Kobe Japan! Then attending the University of Utah college. And I love to be active.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a mormon ever since I can remember and couldn't be more happy. There are many reasons i'm mormon and continue to be, but there is one thing that I love most about being mormon. I have received a happiness and a joy from my faith as I continued to be obedient and show my love towards God. Through times of trial, I have had faith and trust in my Heavenly Father, and he has guided me in a way to understand a feeling of happiness and joy that I can receive as I push through these trials. So I can gain an eternal perspective from this life and see what I can receive in the next life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a lot of different ways. I live my faith by attending priesthood quorum every week. I live it by consistently visiting teaching the members in my ward each month. I show it as I go and learn and teach the gospel at church each week, and also take the sacrament each week. I show faith as I help my friends family and neighbors with things that they need and serve them. And I will show my faith as I serve a two year mission for my Heavenly Father in Kobe Japan helping others come unto Christ.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Luke Barton
All mormons can at some points in their lives enter the temple, but you have to be worthy and living in harmony with the church's commandments in order to go. The temple is a very sacred and holy place. We are not holding secrets in the temple, in fact we want all to enter the temple so they can learn the eternal truths we are promised. Show more Show less
