Hi I'm Logan...

a 23 year old guy lovin' life.

About Me

It's all pretty simple right now... going to school (and working to go to school) seems to be the extent of things. When I get free time, I love hangin' out with friends and family, and spending time outdoors. When I'm not working or going to school, I'm camping, hiking, canyoneering, canoeing, messing around on the piano, or chillin' with family and friends. I try hard to be a good guy... someone worth knowing.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in Utah, I was exposed to the LDS Church from the beginning. I was taught the basic principles, doctrines, and standards of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by my parents and mentors. However, I didn't always have a testimony of what I had been taught. It took a lot of work on my part - studying, pondering, and praying - to come to the understanding that I have now. I have spent two years serving an LDS Mission in Birmingham, England. During those two years, my purpose was to teach the doctrines of our Church to people who were unfamiliar with our faith, or with faith at all. I devoted my time to studying the basic Doctrines of the Gospel: faith, repentance, baptism, the Holy Ghost, and perseverance. I became aware of people and their difficulties, and the help and comfort that the Gospel was able to bring to them. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church, independent of any other source. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of the LDS Church, and attend a congregation (Ward) specialized for young, single adults like myself. The people from church are like my second family. We spend time getting to know each other through service projects, parties, and just hanging out.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

I guess that you could relate it to a courtroom. When a witness is asked to take the stand and to give their testimony, they recount the facts according to the extent of their own personal knowledge. In a more general sense, a person's testimony is a statement of what they know to be true. When a Mormon "bears" his testimony, he shares his knowledge of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, how he has come to that know of the truthfulness of the teachings of the Church, and how that knowledge has blessed him.
