Hi I'm Meredith Luczak

I grew up in Utah and I'm currently serving an LDS mission in Kobe, Japan. I love sharing the joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

About Me

I am a red head born and raised in Centerville, UT. Being active and outdoors is so important to me! I love to camp, fish, hike, run, and play sports. Traveling and adventuring are also my greatest passions! I can't resist trying new things and exploring! My family consists of me, my parents, along with my sister and my dog! I love them more than words can say. I have a twin sister who will be serving in the Japan Fukuoka Mission- she is my best friend and we do everything together! This past year I attended Utah State (GO AGGIES!) and loved going to concerts, hiking, cheering on our sports teams, and living in beautiful Logan. Speaking of concerts, music is very important to me. I'm constantly listening to music- I think it has great power in our lives. I am going to be attending BYU when I get back from my mission and will be majoring in Physiology and Developmental Biology. I have a deep passion for medicine and am pursuing it as a career. Perhaps the most important thing in my life is the gospel of Jesus Christ. It constantly lifts me up and brings true happiness to my life. For this reason I am going to serve my Heavenly Father in the Lords vineyard, in Kobe, Japan. I am so excited to reach out to others and share this message of hope.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints since I was born. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to grow up in the gospel because I have always known that I had a Father in Heaven who loves me. This knowledge is one of the most important things to me. This gospel is centered around the basis that we each have a brother, Jesus Christ, who paid the price for our mistakes, so that we may be able to return to live with our Lord if we but obey. I continue to follow the example that Christ has made for me because it makes me SO happy. This past year attending college was quite difficult for me. I spent a lot of time reading my scriptures and praying- and that is where I found the most solace. I learned that I have a brother who loves me for who I am, and who wants me to succeed in every thing I put my heart and soul into. When I make mistakes, I can repent and try again, because Christ has already paid the price for my sins. I know that my Savior lives. He love me and he loves you. There is nothing in my mind that doubts that. I encourage anybody who reads this to see for yourself that he lives. Read the Book of Mormon and pray with humility and sincerity. You will receive an answer. This is why I am a Mormon. This gospel's teaching and principles testify of this truthfulness. I know that my Redeemer lives. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, my best friend, Amen.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith on a daily basis. I have participated in my ward by being a counselor in various young women presidencies. These neat experiences have allowed me to serve and help others. In my singles ward up at Utah State, I served as the ward temple coordinator. This gave me the wonderful opportunity for my peers and I to attend the temple on a regular basis. The temple is such a crucial part of my life, and one that I could not live without. I try to attend it as regularly as possible, because I believe that in order to live your faith constantly, we need the nourishment that the temple gives. While at school, I was also assigned 2 girls to visit teach and share gospel messages with. At the beginning of the year I didn't think much of visiting teaching, but I grew to love it as I grew so close to the beautiful girls I visited each month. I forged friendships with them that I might not have, and it provided an opportunity to make bonds based on a foundation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I continue to live my faith by reading my scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father on a daily basis. I believe that by doing these things, we will draw closer to our the Lord and want to be an example of the believers. I hope to be a light to others, and a beacon of happiness. That is what this gospel does- it brings happiness.
