Hi I'm Berkley Lunt

I'm an Arizona native and love the sun! I play the trumpet and run competitively. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After graduating high school in 2014, I just completed my first semester of college at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. My whole life I have lived in Arizona and enjoyed using my talents the Lord has blessed me with to share with others and learn more about myself while doing so! I played the trumpet in bands and orchestras all throughout high school and also ran for my cross country and track teams. I was also part of the Cross country team in Hawaii and loved running in the most beautiful places! I have now accepted the call from the Lord to serve a mission in Cape Verde and could not be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been blessed to born into a family with goodly parents who are members of this church. At age 8 I made the decision to be baptized, and since then I've seen my Heavenly Father's hand in all that I do in life. I truly know that my Heavenly Father loves me more than I can comprehend and he hears and answers all of my prayers. He has comforted me in times of sorrow and guided me in times of confusion. I know that he loves all of us, his children, so much that he gave his only begotten son Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins. And because of this I can be forgiven of my mistakes and live in their presence once again. I also know that when we put of faith in Christ, we can accomplish all things and miracles will happen. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore Christ's true church in this dispensation, and that he sealed his testimony with his life. I know we are led by a living and loving prophet today, Thomas S. Monson. I love the scriptures and the spirit of love of protection it brings to me each time I read them. I know that temples truly are the house of the Lord and that because of them we can live with the ones we love forever! I'm excited for the day I can get married in the house of the Lord to the woman I love and start an eternal family centered around the doctrine of Christ! I know that this church is the only true church upon this Earth today, and I'm beyond grateful for the direction it has given me in life thus far. I know these things to be true by the power of prayer through the Holy Ghost, who testifies the truthfulness of all things. I know all people can know of the truthfulness of these things through the Holy Ghost just like I have!

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is by constantly striving to treat others as Christ would! I know that by doing so I have been blessed with being able to build loving relationships with others. In the past I have also served in numerous church callings that bring me so much joy. One of my favorites had to be teaching the 8-9 year old children in my church every Sunday, I loved the light and energy they brought to class and the sincere desire they had to learn about their big brother, Jesus Christ. But right now I'm living my faith by giving two years of my life back to the Lord and serving a mission! I'm very excited to share my faith and the Lord's church with the people in Cabo Verde so they can live with their families for eternity in the presence of our loving Heavenly Father!
