Hi I'm Lawrence Condie

I grew up in Santa Clara, Utah, leaving September 2016 for a two year mission in Tijuana, Mexico.

About Me

I grew up in Santa Clara, St. George and Brookside, Utah. I enjoy hiking, camping, mountain biking, computers, and spending time with friends and family. My parents are divorced and both happily remarried, so I have been blessed with two loving families. I will be 19 in 2017.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, however my parents, while great, were inactive. After their divorce, I fell away completely. I went to a dark place, I wasn't happy, and I didn't like who I was. Thanks to friends, neighbors, and a desire to find something better, I came back to church. I felt the Lord heal my life, bringing a light and a purpose back into it. I dove in, being maybe 15 at that time, and have been dedicated since. I have felt the Lord answer my prayers. My life has never been better and I'm excited to share this joy with others.

How I live my faith

I participate in my ward and in my community. I was first counselor of my Priest's Quorum, helping the bishop and other leaders organize the affairs and activities of our wonderful group of friends. I also did home teaching to members of our ward. I live my faith by daily prayer and study of the scriptures, and by diligently obeying the commandments. I am preparing to serve a mission in which I will give up regular life to preach the gospel to those in Tijuana.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Lawrence Condie
The Book of Mormon is a compilation of the writings of the prophets that were among the descendants of Lehi and his posterity. It is similar to the Old Testament in that it is made up of the teachings of prophets as well as the telling of events that had happened among the Nephites and others. The Book of Mormon gets its name from Mormon, a prophet/historian who abridged and compiled the writings. These were the authors of what is found in the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith was given the BoM by our Heavenly Father and translated the works into what we have today. Show more Show less
