Hi I'm Andy

I happy, a beginning rockclimber, I'm a farmer, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to give service and I serve people whenever I can. I love to build things. My career of choice would definitely be mechanical engineering. I'm not that great with mathematics but I can learn. I live on a farm so I can fabricate pretty much whatever I like to. I love to play sports. There aren't very many activities that I am extremely good at but I like to try my hand at everything. I like new things. Some people ask me why or how I can try certain new things but I simply respond that you'll never know until you try. Going to Israel was, in part, one of those instances. I loved going there and want to go back. One of our bus guides said to us "We have a saying to all people who come to Israel. 'Welcome home!'". That's kind of how it feels. I love the gospel and love to learn as much as I can about it. It has changed my life in more ways than 23.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church and have been active in it my whole life. There comes a time in every persons life who desires to know God when you have to learn or discover for yourself what is the right way for you or what is the true church of Jesus Christ. I had that desire at age 17. I knelt and asked my Heavenly Father, in prayer, if the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints was His restored church on the earth. The answer I received was not by vision or physical spoken word, but rather in my heart. I felt my Heavenly Fathers love for me and the confirmation that this is His true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith and religion by being the best example of the Lord Jesus Christ that I can be. I try share the Gospel with everyone that I see and help them strengthen their own faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ by helping them to understand his atonement.  It means everything to me.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is where we learn to be who we are. It's so important to us because we center our families on the teachings of Jesus Christ. We encourage our families to be good examples to others, be nice and to be respectable, honest people. They are the future of everything. Show more Show less
