Hi I'm Andrew Horton

I'm a husband, and a father of 6. I love to laugh, watch movies, eat cinnamon bears and go to Disneyland with my family.

About Me

I served a Spanish-speaking mission to San Bernardino, California. I later Graduated from BYU with a degree in Zoology. I have a Master’s Degree in education. I taught seminary for 10 years and now I help create movies and media for youth. I love movies, the outdoors, gardening, woodworking, homemade salsa, smoothies, and kissing my wife right on the lips. My wife’s name is Stephanie and we were married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1992. We have 4 daughters, 2 sons, and a lot of Legos. I will soon return to teaching seminary which I love. I love to sit and laugh around the dinner table with my family. My wife is a wonderful cook who loves to try new things. Together we enjoy taking our kids to Disneyland, St. George, and to visit family in Seattle. We opened a small clothing store in Orem in 2010 called 7 Circles Clothing Outlet. It was a lot of work for our entire family but has been and is a wonderful thing for us and our older kids. I love studying and learning from the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenant, and Bible. There are mounds of sacred treasures of knowledge and learning in the scriptures; Doctrines and principles to help us live better lives, and be happier as we work to raise families and be a good influence on the world. I had to work to gain my testimony of the LDS Church. But now I absolutely know that Jesus Christ lives, and that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have learned that Christ lives and he has called living prophets to guide and direct the kingdom of God on earth. That kingdom is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. The fact that that book is true means that Joseph Smith was called of God, and that he really saw Jesus Christ and Our Heavenly Father, in a grove of Trees in 1820. To sum it all up, I'm a Mormon because being one has brought me great Joy as I've discovered truth after truth and felt my Heavenly Father direct my choices. I have an eternal family, and know where we came from, why we are here, and where we can get to after this life. The Church is True!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith through daily prayer, scripture study, and by trying to keep the commandments of God. I try to help my children understand the importance of making these things a priority in their lives as well. My added responsibilities come from my calling as a stake president. I'm responsible for around 3700 other members. I try to help them and encourage them to remain faithful and devoted as well.
