Hi I'm Landen Hansen

I'm not you're everyday Mormon boy from Utah. I'm a soccer player, fly-fisherman, smiling and laughing diva. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the oldest of 3 children, the oldest of 30 grandchildren, I feel really old sometimes but I'm actually still pretty young! I grew up in Utah playing soccer, and fishing any chance I could. I'm really good at Fifa and Halo and would challenge anybody who considers themselves worthy. I had the great opportunity to play college soccer close to home and graciously accepted, I have completed one year of school but still have no clue what I would like to major in... Anything that doesn't involve math! I have been called to serve a full time mission in Washington and couldn't be anymore excited!

Why I am a Mormon

It would have been extremely easy to turn my back on the church at an early age. My parents were divorced, inactive, and didn't care if I was attending my meetings or not. BUT sticking to the gospel and relying on my Savior, Jesus Christ through the trials and hard times has been the greatest blessing in my life, hands down. His church brings so much joy and happiness to my life because I know that he loves and cares about me individually. Heavenly Father has shown me that he cares about me and the things that I am going through, even the little things. I know he is always there for me as long as I have faith and call upon him. Loving my family as much as I do, His plan is beautiful. We have the opportunity to spend eternity with the people we love, all because of Christ and his atonement. I will forever be grateful for his sacrifice and now realize what a true blessing this gospel is. How lucky I am to have had the exposure to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at an early age, it makes me better every day and I cannot wait to share my knowledge and testimony with others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by SMILING. This gospel is the source of my peace and happiness and I have no problem letting others know that. My freshman year of college people would ask me all the time, "how are you so happy?" Attending a school with many students who have never even heard of Mormons, the fact that I didn't drink alcohol or do drugs was extremely peculiar. I would answer back, "I'm a Mormon." I live a normal life, I go to school, I play sports, I play Xbox every now and then, I get busy, I hang out with friends.. but my faith is what balances me out. It helps me to be a better person and have more confidence in who I am. I love who I have become and know that I will only get better as I act on my faith and strive to be a light to others, just as Jesus Christ was. My life will soon change as I serve a mission for two years and devote my time and effort to building the Lord's kingdom in these latter days.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Landen Hansen
"What matters the most, is what lasts the longest." M. Russell Ballard. Mormons believe that the family is the most important unit on this Earth. We believe that families are forever and that we can spend eternity with our loved ones through faith in Jesus Christ and the great Plan of Salvation. This life is time to prepare to meet God, and as we do that, we strengthen and love our families more. And although death is hard, it is certainly not the end. We can and will have eternal lives with our families, contingent upon our faithfulness to His plan and commandments. Show more Show less
