Hi I'm Luke Ramsay

I live in Salt Lake City where I studied at the University of Utah and now have a wife and four kids. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was raised a member of the the LDS Church in a rural town in Southern Utah. I studied accounting at the University of Utah and now work in personal finance. I am married and have four kids. As a family we love doing everything we can together. I am a huge sports fan and follow most major sports. As a youth I enjoyed playing Football, Basketball and Baseball. Now I run. I usually run a marathon or two per year. In everything I do I love having the knowledge that I have a savior that made it possible for me to return to live with my Father in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ my family did not attend church regularly and I did not really believe or understand the Gospel of the Savior. In high school I decided that I needed to find out for myself if the Book of Mormon was true scripture and if it really did have teaching of the Savior. As I read and studied both the Book of Mormon and the Bible I couldn't deny the feelings that I was feeling. As the feelings grew stronger and stronger I was drawn to action and I began to change my life for the better. I started following the commandments. This led to me preparing and serving a mission in California where I was able to help other do and feel the same. Each time I was apart of someones conversion I was blessed again with a rush of the spirit and it has continued to this day to help me through my days. I am grateful for the spirit in my life and a knowledge that God lives and that there is a plan and a way for me to return to live with him again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the guides and commandments that God has asked us to. The reason I do this is so that I can have the Spirit of Christ in my life to help me make the hard decisions that come. I also make sure to study the words of Christ on a daily basis in order to make the spirit that much stronger. I find strength in the beauty of the Earth and everything I see. I see a world prepared for me to come to and work on becoming a better person. I am grateful for the knowledge that I have of the Savior and the Plan of Salvation. It helps me to get through many of my days and allows me to focus on what really matters. It allows me to enjoy time with my family and assures me that we will be a family for all of eternity.
