Hi I'm Logan

I have grown up in Texas, love all art and music, will shortly be serving as a missionary in Tallahassee Florida, and I'm a mormon

About Me

Besides being a Mormon I am an artist, a pianist, a vocalist, a High school Honor student, and a brother. Art has always been something I love and will be forever. The opportunity to share my creativity and talent with visual creations is a gift that I hope to be able to share with all I come into contact with. The piano is probably my favorite instrument and would be second only to the vocal chords(Which is an instrument no matter what people say). Music has been a part of my life from a very early age. Many in my family sing and I was not about to break that tradition. I have been through many school choirs, church choirs, and voice lessons. Playing the piano is another talent that I picked up while younger and I have played since I was eight. The piano has not only be an outlet for me but also a tool that has helped me in my singing. Now going to school is a trial that, sadly, we all must endure. While I don't think I am alone in saying school can be very annoying and back breaking, I have also come to find joy in learning. Being able to excel in the classroom and gain an education that I can be proud of thus far is a huge blessing. It has not only helped me prepare to be a better student in higher education, but also a better teacher, missionary, and someday, a father. Lastly being a brother is awesome. I have and will always look up to my siblings whether older or younger. I have found that they will always have something to teach me. (All I need is a little patience)

Why I am a Mormon

Just because I was born into the Mormon faith does not mean I have not chosen for myself to follow my Savior Jesus Christ. I think that every single one of us has to rely on the testimony of someone else to continue in this faith until we are able to develop one of our own, and having been born into the church I have relied on the faith of those members around me for quite some time. However, after prayerful study of the scriptures and countless hours pondering on what I truly believe I have come to know the truthfulness of this gospel. This conviction in my Father in heaven and His son, my brother, Jesus Christ did not come without its trials. I have been through hard times and I believe that we all must endure some discomfort in this life. For it truly is our test of faithfulness and if we expect God to hand us perfection on a silver platter then we still have so much to learn. God's plan is for us to learn and grow as we The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christs restored church on the earth today. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, was written by prophets of old in the Americas for us, and is as much divine revelation as the Bible. Jesus Christ is my Savior and He died for me. Through personal experience I know that He endured the atonement so that I might be made clean. The last thing I want to share is my testimony of eternal families. This is one of the most profound reasons I love this gospel. The focus that we have on the family unit is an eternal perspective that helps us see past our mortal discomforts. My grandpa is famous for saying he wants "No empty Chairs" when we return to live with our families in the presence of God our Heavenly Father. This desire and opportunity to live with those I love forever and ever is a powerful force in my faith in Jesus Christ and the blessing of his gospel.

How I live my faith

Having been raised in the church I was taught about missionaries and the work they do since I was a small child. I have grown up with a mission as one of my big goals and will be serving as a missionary in the Tallahassee Florida mission. Along with serving as a full-time missionary I have been very active in my youth group and always enjoy sharing my faith with non-member friends who always have questions. The opportunity to bear testimony of what I believe has strengthened my faith and always brings the spirit more into my life.
