Hi I'm Drew

I grew up in Medford, OR. I am an attorney. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of four. Outside of work I like to play games with my children, read books, build things, do yard work, cycling, golf and many other activities.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it is right! As a youth I always believed the gospel to be true and that the church was the means by which Jesus governed his kingdom here on Earth. As I grew I did not really question this believe until I served a mission in Novosibirsk, Russia. The prospect of living for two years in Siberia without knowing the truthfulness of the gospel or believing it in my heart was a daunting one. I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if this is what he wanted me to do. His answer was a warm and reassuring yes. I have never wavered since that time in my believe. While I am not perfect, I know this is God's kingdom on Earth. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God! I know my Savior loves me and wants me to succeed. But the single greatest blessing that has flowed from my membership is the knowledge that my wife and I will be together throughout eternity and be able to share in the blessings of Heaven with our family both immediate, and extended.

How I live my faith

During the day I actively practice law. In the evenings and weekends I spend my time with my family, visiting families with whom I attend church or attending church meetings. As part of my church service I help others with questions about employment, social security, emergency preparedness, finances and general welfare principles. I love to share the gospel and to discuss the church and the things we do with those around me.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

It is a commandment given to us by God. It is necessary but it also allows us to build unity one with another and have a common bond moving forward. It is a simple of the person's faith, and commitment to their Lord and Savior and it washes them clean and they get to start over with a blank slate before the Lord. Show more Show less
