Hi I'm "Boo" Ludlow

Born and raised in Idaho. I love to think and am on the hunt for higher education. I love stories and I love people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Other than the mission I'm about to embark on, the biggest new chapter of my life that's unfolding is college. I'm just finished my first year at BYU Provo, and it was absolutely incredible. I love college. I'm so excited to devour the classes leading up to my Bachelor's Degree, and hope to follow that up with a Master's. Outside of school, I love reading, but my real passion is overly complicated games (that aren't video games). Settlers of Catan, Dungeons and Dragons... I can't get enough of it. I love getting a bunch of smart friends together and splitting brain cells as we each compete to come out on top. I'm an oldest child in a family of six (total), and strive to be the best example that I can. Whenever someone asks me why I say my name is "Boo" rather than "David" (as it is on my birth certificate), I love watching the look of dismay on their face as I start getting philosophical and asking questions such as, "What is a name, really?" My name is Boo. I'm a strange kid that loves exercising his brain and participating in complicated games. And I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith and have continued down that path my entire life. There have certainly been times that I wondered if my faith was "correct" or not, and doubt began to creep in. But when I reexamine the gospel of Christ, and see the impact it has on my life and others, those doubts soon flee. In all honesty, it just makes the most sense to me. I love other religions and especially the people in them, but when I compare what I know about my faith with others, mine sits best in my heart.

How I live my faith

I study my scriptures, I go to church, and I perform my responsibilities. Sometimes those responsibilities involve service, other times it means preparing a lesson for a class, etc, but whatever I'm doing I make sure to give all that I have.
