Hi I'm Ammon Luckart

I was born in Southern California. I want to go to Stanford or Oxford and study Neuropsychology. I'm a Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised and have lived in the west coast of the United States my entire life. I like to write music (mainly hip-hop instrumentals), and perform scientific research. I currently am a student at a junior college in the Pacific Northwest, and I have been called to be a missionary to the people of Tulsa, Oklahoma. After my mission I hope to finish up at my college, and transfer to a few higher universities, where I will earn a degree in cognitive neuropsychology. I like to study and learn how the human mind learns, remembers, understands, and figures things out. I am a scientist. I also study music, and the science of music and sound, and how that relates to the human brain. I am currently teaching myself Spanish and American Sign Language (ASL). I love to learn different languages and find them intriguing. I enjoy using sign language thoroughly, though I am still learning how. One of my favorite things in life is learning. I want to learn and do all I can to obtain knowledge and understanding in this life. I have also earned the Eagle Scout Award in the Boy Scouts of America and hope someday to be a scouting leader. I am currently on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, serving in the Oklahoma Tulsa mission in the Spanish language.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). I grew up in an LDS home. I have been asked by some if this is what I believe, or if it something my parents have forced on me. I politely tell them that although I have always been a member of the church, and that I was raised in a LDS (Mormon) home, I have my own testimony that the church is true and I believe with my heart that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the true gospel and that it is the Only way back to him. There was a short time in my life, growing up, where I didn't really know who I was. I started rapping, and became very good, and I enjoyed the support that I received from my peers. I still went to church and said that I believed it, but I was trying to live two lives, one at church, and one at home. I came to realize that this was impossible and that it would only bring confusion to my life. I abandoned my desires to become a rapper and stuck solely to making hip-hop instrumentals. I have often lived in a home where financial stress sometimes made it difficult for us to have sufficient food in our cupboards. My ecclesiastic leaders promised my parents that if they paid their tithing, they would not want for food for their families. Through the grace of God, and the church's Bishop's Storehouse, we were given all the food that we needed, until we were able to again pay for all of the food we needed. I have come to know without question that Heavenly Father exists and that He knows me and does provide a way for me and my family to have what we need. He has a plan for me to come to Earth and to eventually return to Him. I know that He loves me, and I feel His love for me often.

How I live my faith

I believe that every body on this earth is a literal son and daughter of a Supreme Being, or God. I believe in a God who communicates with and is interested in the lives of His children. I pray often to God, and seek for His guidance constantly in my daily life. I attend an Latter Day Saint (Mormon) congregation where I live and immensely enjoy participating in church activities. Every month I go with a fellow brother in my church and teach several families a lesson that has been assigned for that month. This is called in my church "home teaching." In working closely with these families I grow in love for them and try to assist them wherever I can. I am an LDS (Mormon) missionary, and I have been commissioned to teach the people of Tulsa, Oklahoma and surrounding regions in the Spanish language. I am so very excited and can't wait to serve the people there!
