Hi I'm Layton Griffith

I grew up in Morgan, Utah. I love to learn about history. I enjoy walking in the rain. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Layton, I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My love of history makes studying from the scriptures very enjoyable. I enjoy music, both classical and rock. I enjoy running. I enjoy working on the computer and enjoy helping others when they have computer problems. I love to help my Grandparents and call them at least once a week. And I love to travel and have adventures with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon. As I grew up, I learned that the things I had been taught were true. I find comfort knowing about the plan of salvation. This plan gives me purpose and helps me to find happiness. I am glad that we have a living prophet who tells us what God wants us to do in a way that's easy to understand and is applicable to us today.

How I live my faith

I serve others whenever I have the opportunity. Earning my Eagle Scout award allowed me many opportunities to serve. I enjoy talking with others about gospel related subjects and trying to be more like Christ.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Layton Griffith
The purpose of life is to be tested and given a physical body. We are learning to choose between good and evil, which helps us develop god-like characteristics. We have family members that help us through trials. Show more Show less
