Hi I'm Lukas Ridd

I was born in Utah and raised in Houston, Texas. I love anything outdoors and sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports, outdoors and being social with others. I currently am attending BYU, but on March 15th I will enter the Provo MTC and leave soon after to serve a mission in Italy, Rome. I cannot wait to go serve the people of Rome, and am currently trying to create habits that will help me during that time. I love serving others, and making others happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. This is one of the biggest blessings in my own life. Why is this? This is because being a Mormon, and living my religion brings me Joy. Everyday as I strive to understand and know my Father in Heaven better is a day I get more joy. I have learned of truths in this Gospel that other do not have. One of these is the joy and comfort of knowing that my family is Eternal. Not just that, but that when I marry, it will not be "till death do we part," it is forever. This is one of the Gospel truths that brightens my life. I want others to also feel the joy I get from the Gospel, and that is why I am also going to serve a 2 year mission to Rome, Italy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. It is not a once a week church day, it is a worship the Lord every day. Some of the ways I do this is by reading scriptures and praying to my Father in Heaven. In the church I have a calling over the men. I get the opportunity to teach sunday school classes for them, and extend a helping hand when they are in need.
