Hi I'm Andrew

I've been a Mormon all my life. I live and work in Orange County, California.

About Me

My wife and I have four children between the ages of 2 and 15. I am an attorney working in-house at a real estate development company. Music is very important to me. I play piano and guitar and dabble in a few other instruments. I also have a secret ambition of being a writer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon and my family are all members of the LDS church. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and that he saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus Christ told him to translate the Book of Mormon and to establish the LDS church. The reason I believe is because I've seen and experienced for myself the joy that comes from following the church's teachings. Also, I believe in the church's answers to the big questions in life--what is life's purpose? Where did we come from? Where will we go after we die?

How I live my faith

I try to live by the teachings of the scriptures. The Bible and the Book of Mormon are important to me. I try to be an example to those around me, and learn from others as well. I'm grateful for the church for the guidance and support it gives me in my life. One of the things that has brought me a lot of joy is to play the piano and organ in church. I think it's a great way to share your talent and passion and also to serve others.
