Hi I'm London

I am a student at BYU, and I come from a family with 17 children. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently a Sophomore in college, and I am studying Exercise and Wellness. I love playing sports and being outdoors, and just being active in general, but I also love food! I enjoy cooking and helping to make meals for my huge family. I seriously love my family so much, and I have so much fun with them. They are my best friends. My parents had 8 children biologically, and have adopted 9 more. It's so amazing because I have siblings so close in age to me, and our house is always a party of people. I enjoy spending time with my family, specifically playing basketball, swimming, or watching movies together. We all get along surprisingly well, and I just love having them as such a huge part of my life. My life is seriously the best!

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I haven't had a single moment or a thundering voice from heaven tell me that this is right, but rather I continue to feel the spirit of God everyday. This comes to me in a warm feeling most of the time, and I often cannot hold back tears. I often look around at our world today, and I can see all of the different ways that people are trying to find happiness. It's often in things like money, fame, passions, or addictions, and when I see people who think that this is the best way to happiness, I feel that there is something very huge missing. I do not have a perfect life by any means, and I still have moments of great sadness and stress, but overall I have joy. I love my life, and even when everything seems to be going wrong, I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and is by my side. I know that I have a loving savior, Jesus Christ, who has suffered everything I have and will ever go through. Through him I can repent and change when I make mistakes. My life is so good, and I know that it is because of my willingness to follow Christ. This is his church, and all can receive the happiness that I have if they simply choose to follow him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a lot of ways because it is the center of my life and everything I do. However, I have felt that the biggest way I live my faith is by serving others. I have noticed that I often get specific ideas about how I can help someone, or reach out to them, or lift them up in some way. Sometimes I feel like I should serve people that I don't even know, and while it is sometimes scary or difficult, I ALWAYS feel good about helping them. Jesus Christ spent his whole life serving others, and he teaches us that we should do the same. I am definitely not perfect at serving all the time, or at following the feelings I get to help others, but when I do, I feel like I am living my faith in the best way possible. Service is such an amazing thing as I have come to find. I have realized that I am often thinking about myself and what I need or want out of life, and I am usually not satisfies. However, as I look for ways that I can help others to be happy, and when I forget about my own desires, I am more happy than ever before!
