Downloading and Installing New Fonts. (W/O Root)

Okay, so I just recently purchased an LG Optimus G on the Sprint Network, after dealing with Samsung Products for years. My most recent phone was the Epic 4g Touch. With that phone I had the option of downloading new fonts without rooting my phone. Im not that tech savvy so I never rooted any of my phones, and I don't want to start now. I have been able to change my font on the Optimus G, but I have only been able to use the fonts that already come pre-installed on the phone, which I don't like so much. I have tried looking in the Play Store for an app that would help me to change my fonts, but either they only work for the Galaxy Series or they require root access. My question is this:

Does anyone know of anyway that I can download and change the font on my phone without requiring root access? Or without downloading a custom launcher?

I have also tried using font download websites and downloading .zip files, .ttf files, and .apk files. Nothing works. Please help.

You don't like any of the pre-installed fonts?
