Hi I'm Logan Grady Payne

I was born and raised in Northeastern Nevada. I have participated in acting and public speaking all of my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the offspring of a clown and an manager of or portable toilet company that is serving my mission in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. I enjoy the theater programs and all aspects of preforming, be it acting, public speaking, or even singing. I also enjoy being part of nature, be it hiking in the canyon outside my home, or even just gazing at the stars, there is so much beauty in the Earth! I look forward for a chance to continue to serve the Lord and bring others of my dear brothers and sisters into his fold.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born to parents who lived the gospel and raised me to love our Heavenly Father. However, at one point in my life my family fell away from the church. We traveled on Sundays and began to find excuses not to go all together. While we still claimed to be members we slipped from all the blessing that the gospel brings to a family. It wasn't until a dear friend of mine and his family reached back out to me and my family. they loved and cared so much for us and tried to help us back. A short while later another friend asked to meet with missionaries so we opened our home to allow him to hear the gospel. The spirit that they brought into my home and acting upon simple principles of attending church, reading, and praying to our Father in Heaven filled my heart and I knew I had to latch onto it. Then I finally reached my own personal conversion of the truthfulness of the church as that same spirit strongly testified into my heart! I knew That i was raised in, and came back to the true church of Jesus Christ and here I WILL stay!

How I live my faith

I have been active in the church for most of my entire life and strive to do my best to serve those around me. Since my family re-activated into the church it has been my goal to do everything I can to help out. I have held and active part in my Young men's organization and strive to be an example to all that I spend time around. I think that the best way to live your faith is by being there for all others. Our Savior suffered for us and took upon all of our sadness so that we can be happy again, so I try my best to spread Christlike joy and happiness everywhere I go!
