Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a Mormon, that is, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I am 27 years old, and I love to play ping-pong! I just graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics and a second B.S. in Meteorology. I am married and my beautiful wife is a Mechanical Engineer and we just had our first child, Andrew.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found out for myself that the teachings and doctrines taught in this church are of God and are true. I was raised in the church, but as a teenager, I found myself fighting my parents and rebelling more and more. As time went on, trials became tougher and I found myself figuratively at the end of a dark alley. I had reached the end of my rope, and it was then that I felt the greatest desire I had felt to pray and find out for myself if God even existed. After that day, I have never doubted that He exists and that He loves me. I also came away with the logical deduction and testimony that this IS His Church on earth.

How I live my faith

Every day has its own trials, but it is usually easy to live my faith. I used to be the Ward Executive Secretary, until recently. As such, I would schedule meetings for the Bishop (our local ecclesiastical leader) with members of the church and investigators that would like to speak with him. I am now the Young Men President. This means that I am responsible for watching out for the young men 12-18 years old in our ward, and making sure they are getting the attention they need, and activities they desire are occurring to keep them interested and active in the church. I frequently go out with the missionaries to help teach investigators. It is a great work to do and I love helping with it!

Are Mormons Christians?

The easiest way to answer this question is by looking at the true name of our church The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A Christian believes in Christ, and we believe in Him. Show more Show less
