Hi I'm Lucas

I'm serving in the Washington, Kennewick Mission. Afterward, I will study to be an artist and an attorney. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I studied Fine Art for a year at the University of Utah before I decided to serve a Mission. After my Mission, I plan on exploring law and politics. I enjoy drawing, reading, hiking, playing video games, and participating in various other nerdy activities. I played Varsity Doubles on my high school tennis team. I enjoy punk rock, metal, and classical music. I read a lot of Brandon Sanderson novels, and a lot of comic books. I watch a lot of movies, tv shows, and anime. My brother is a novelist, my mother works for a healthcare organisation, and my father is a freelance illustrator. I am very close with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to be the only 100% true church on the Earth. I grew up learning the principles of His gospel. I have read the Book of Mormon through several times. I have prayed for confirmation that what I've learned is true, and I have received exactly that. I have witnessed the power of obedience, and the blessings that come with it. I have witnessed the power of the Priesthood. I have a testimony of the healing power of Christ's Atonement. I know that it is only through Him that we can return to live with our families and Heavenly Father for Eternity; and only through Him can we have true Joy.

How I live my faith

I attend and participate in my Church meetings every week. I have had callings in the Priesthood. I try hard to get my home teaching done every month, and to make sure my families are taken care of. After every lesson my companion and I ask if there is anything we can do for them. I am careful about the media I consume. I try not to watch things that are excessively violent or profane, and I avoid sexual material as much as possible. I try to keep the music I listen to clean as well. I participate in service activities, such as helping people move into or out of their homes, whenever I'm needed. I obey the Commandments, the Word of Wisdom, the Law of Tithing, and the Law of Chastity.
