Hi I'm Landon

I was born and raised in Colorado. I graduated high school in the class of 2015. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be active. I played lacrosse from 5th grade to my senior year of high school. During the winter I love to go up to the Rocky Mountains to snowboard. In the summer I am always going on boating trips with my family to lakes in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. We take a yearly vacation to Lake Powell, Utah were we hang out and do fun activities like wake-boarding, water-skiing, tubing, cliff jumping, etc. Like any other guy my age I really enjoy video games. I also consider myself to be a really social person. I love spending time with friends and being around people. I just received my mission call to Belo Horizonte, Brazil and I report to the Sao Palo (Brazil) Missionary Training Center on December 2nd. After my mission I am will be attending BYU-Idaho where I plan to get a degree in Psychology and pursue a career in therapy or something of that nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I wouldn't be giving two years of my life to serve a mission if I didn't believe in it. I have come to know of it's truthfulness through daily scripture study, fervent prayer, and active church attendance. I am Mormon because I know that it is the only church on the Earth today that has the Gospel in it's fullness. I am Mormon because I have felt the spirit touch my heart. When it comes down to it, I am Mormon because when I am living by the principles and commandments I feel true happiness. Sometimes we have questions or doubts. I have had many throughout my life, but whenever I do I think of a quote by President Dieter F. Utchdorf, "Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith." I am so grateful to be a member of this church, it means everything to me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly striving to do what is right. Sometimes it is difficult to do the right thing, especially in a day and age where society's views of what the right thing is has strayed far from what the church's view is. I do know that if I give my best efforts to diligently choose the right by keep the commandments, that all will be well in the end.
