Hi I'm Landon

I grew up in Lindon, Utah. I'm serving a mission for 2 years. I'm a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I'm very big in sports and basketball is my favorite. I also like to play video games. All of my friends call me "Smoothdawg" because I was very smooth with talking to people. Singing is a passion of mine. I was in choir since I was 12 and in my high school years I went 2 state choir festival and won 2 superior ratings with the choirs. Music is a big part of my life. I love all types of music except for metal, rap and country. I love to be out with friends just hanging out and doing fun things. I will be serving a mission in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and I will also be speaking Spanish! I can be a little bit shy at sometimes but I'm outgoing most of the time. I love pets and love little kids. I'm a very caring guy and love to make smiles on people's faces.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised as a Mormon since I was born. Over the years I have gone through so many things and have had a lot of struggles in my family and my life in general. But over the years I have experienced so many blessings that helped me to continue through life and overall it has brought me closer to this church. I love reading in the Book of Mormon about the prophets of old and the stories that are written in that book. The knowledge in the book has helped me in my struggles to stay close to Heavenly Father and ask for his help. As I have been preparing for a mission, I have found myself more engaged in the Book of Mormon and I have found out more things that I didn't find before when I read it. I know that this Book is true as I have received personal revelation from God that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that I have felt God's holy spirit prompting me and guiding me on a path that will again lead me back to heaven to live with Him. I know that as we follow Christ and keep his commandments, we will be worthy when the day that we meet God comes that we will be worthy to go into his kingdom and receive eternal life. I know that there is a God and that his son bled and died for us because he loves us with an infinite amount of love. I know that if you have faith in Christ and ask for his help, he will help you. I love this church and I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I think the best way is to help and serve others. Our youth in our ward does a lot to help the people in our ward who have trouble doing certain things. We love to find ways to serve them and make them feel loved. Sometimes during the year we go in pairs and go to the elderly and talk with them for a while and its the best feeling to see them happy. I love to hometeach the families I have been assigned to each month and its a great feeling to share a message and check up with them each month and see how the family is doing. My ward has been very helpful to other families who are struggling. We bring meals, serve them by doing yard work and are always friends to them so we can make their lives more hopeful and happier.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

We believe that our body is a precious gift from God and that we need to keep it healthy. We do not drink hot drinks like tea and coffee and we advise against the use of any drugs, tobacco, or consumption of alcohol as they can harm our bodies. We call this the Word of Wisdom. By following the Word of Wisdom, God will bless us with spiritual blessings and will help our bodies to stay healthy. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ that he lives. We consider it to be the keystone of our religion. The Book of Mormon contains writings of ancient prophets. It also contains teachings of Jesus Christ that testify of His Atonement and His love for you. The Book of Mormon contains many stories of the prophets that God called and it shows their experiences and the power that God gave them. The Book of Mormon contains revelation that will help you in your life to live like Christ and follow in his footsteps. By living and following the teachings of this book, you will receive blessings and see happiness and joy flow into your life as you read and apply the Book of Mormon in your life. Show more Show less
