Hi I'm Andrew

I am a student, a ukulele player, a Korean speaker, a new husband, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student working on a masters degree in English literature. I grew up in a big family and like to spend time with my brothers. Ultimate Frisbee is my favorite sport, and I also love music. I played the trumpet in my high school marching band and the violin in the college orchestra and Mariachi band. As an English major, I read a lot of old books. My favorites are Shakespeare plays, and the poetry of Wordsworth, Keats, and Donne. I recently got married and we are expecting our first child--a baby girl!

Why I am a Mormon

Because I have found purpose in life and a firm hope in Jesus Christ. Because this church gives me the opportunity to serve others. Because I know that I can be with my family forever if I am faithful. Because everything that I learn at school reinforces the things that I know from scripture. Because the original church of Christ has been reestablished and there is a modern prophet like Moses who leads it today.

How I live my faith

I really enjoy going to church each week. The people there are some of my best friends and I always feel closer to God and more motivated to be a good person. Each week growing up, my parents and siblings would get together on a family night and spend time together singing and talking about the Jesus Christ's gospel. Now that I am in college, I do a "family night" with the other students each week. Just like "Family Home Evening" I did as a kid, it is a time to strengthen each others' faith.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

We believe in the Bible because it is a record of many ancient prophets men who were called by God to lead the church and it testifies that Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life. I love to study the Bible, and I know that what it teaches is true. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity is one of the simplest and most powerful instructions that God has given to us. It says that we are not to have any sexual relations outside of marriage. Contrast this simple instruction with what you see on TV or hear about at school. From the media it seems like if you are not sleeping with lots of people there is something wrong with you. But waiting until the commitment of marriage is the way to go. I know that the Lord gives us commandments to show us how to be happy. They are not for his benefit but for ours. Show more Show less
