Hi I'm Andy

I'm from California. I'm a huge Giants fan. I love dancing and dessert.........and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in northern California. I am the fourth of six children. I have wonderful parents who have been happily married for 37 years. I was interested in sports from a very young age unlike the rest of my family. Sports continue to be one of my greatest passions. Baseball, football, basketball, running, frisbee, and dancing are a few of the sports/activities I enjoy. I also enjoy singing and playing the piano. I love little children, playing tetris, and dessert! I now live in Utah. I studied spanish teaching in college - secondary education. I work full-time in sales for a media company. I'd like to go back to school to get my teaching certificate for elementary education and try my hand at being a 1st grade teacher. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with great parents who taught me that God and Jesus Christ love us and want whats best for us. They taught me that Jesus is our Savior and the only way through which we can be forgiven of our sins, be saved, and return to live with God, Jesus, and our loved ones after this life. I leaned on their faith for several years. But then I had many personal experiences with the Spirit as a kid and teenager that helped me gain a belief and testimony of my very own. Those spiritual experiences continue to this day to help confirm that testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know He is my Savior and Redeemer. I know that His church has been restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, as is the Bible. I am a Mormon because I believe The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the His true church on earth. I am a Mormon because it helps me answer life questions "Where did we come from before this life?, What is the purpose of this life?, and Where will go after this life?" I am a Mormon because it brings me peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

I am a Temple Preparation/Family History teacher. I'm on the Fellowship Committee. I serve as a pianist when I am needed during Sunday meetings. I am a Home Teacher. If you have any questions on what my responsibilities are for any one of these services, let me know!
