Hi I'm Luke

I love running, singing, and anime. My job is keeping your WiFi working and your phones ringing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In high school, I was the varsity captain for cross country and track. I participated in a quad-state honor choir and ran my own debate club. My hobbies include eating, reading, drawing, watching anime, and learning languages (Spanish and Japanese). I currently attend Brigham Young University, (although it's a miracle that I was accepted because of my grades,) and am studying communications. Me and my friends started a small business that made customizable children's' books, and I've worked in everything from being an electritian, to McDonald's and the financial industry. I thrive in front of crowds, and the world is my stage. I want to have a life anything but normal. 

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I was born into the church, but that doesn't make me a Mormon. It's difficult to explain. The mascot of my high school was a golden hawk. There were alot of people at my high school that, well attended school, but they weren't Golden Hawks. They didn't take upon them the school motto or values, they were just there. When I joined my teams, clubs, and activity groups, I bought into the culture of what it meant to be a "Golden Hawk". That's kinda how my conversion to the gospel is. I am a Mormon because of what it stands for. Someone who follows Christ in everything they do, to take upon me His name, His values, both inside the chapel and out of it. That's why I'm a Mormon, because I want to follow Christ.

How I live my faith

I believe living my faith means living by my faith. I live so that when someone takes a look at my life, they see something amazing, inspiring, and above all else, a life that testifies that I am a follower of Christ. Christ served others, and that's how I want to spend mine.

What is being a Mormon like?

Luke
To be honest, anyone take take this question anywhere. Can someone be miserable in Disney Land? Absolutely. It is what you make it. However, if you live by the teachings of the church, the Bible, and the Book of Mormon, it's hard to be miserable while living a life trying to emulate the Savior. If service makes you sad, well, I don't know what to say, but the family (both literal and figurtive) centered mentality will make anyone feel welcome. I had a blast being a Mormon growing up in a non-Mormon saturated area, meaning not Utah. I grew up in Bakersfield, CA. I had the haters try to debate me about gospel stuff, but almost everyone respected me because of the standards I set and how I carried myself. It is what you make it, so I try to make it awesome.
