Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a father or four. I'm a rocket engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to my a wonderful woman and my best friend. We have four children. I love to fly small aircraft, and work on them too. I like ham radio and many other things that are too numerous to do with any regularity. I'm interested in quality children's literature my grandmother's legacy and teaching my kids to be responsible. I'm an engineer by profession and love to design and program robotic and autonomous systems.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church from my childhood. I was baptised at eight years old the minimum age in the church knowing that I was promising my heavenly father that I would keep his commandments. I am also a member of the church because the restored gospel has been inexhaustible to me. There is always more to learn, and the pattern of learning always allows me to ask God if I am on the right track. I feel that what I have learned in the church is like walking in the light of the sun as compared to navigating by flash light. There is a depth and richness of doctrine available which I have never found elsewhere.

How I live my faith

My relationship with God: I live my faith by repenting. There have been times in my life where I knew that I would need the help of my Saviour, Jesus Christ before I would be able to stand in the presence of my creator. I asked for his help and was overjoyed when I knew he was helping and I could feel my burdens lightening. I find myself repeatedly in need of improvement, whether by fixing mistakes I've made or doing a better job fulfilling my responsibilities. My faith in Christ helps me make incremental changes, which, in sum, are likely as meaningful as the occasional colossal change. My relationship with others: At church I am involved in helping others to better live their faith, encouraging them to pray and study the scriptures. I am fortunate to assist others by organizing service, quite frequently by helping members who are moving to or from the area load or unload. There is hardly a better feeling in the world than what you experience while helping others.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Our spirits leave our bodies. We will be able to interact with others in the same state. We will be awaiting final judgement and resurrection, when our spirits and bodies will be reunited, never to be separated again. Show more Show less
