Hi I'm Aaron

100% Aussie...100% Mormon

About Me

Well my name is Aaron and I'm from the beautiful Sunshine State. I love swimming and playing touch football (rugby for all you Melbourne peeps). I have taken a break from university and not too sure if I will go back to it or get a trade. I come from a small family and 2/3rds of us are active members in the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to join the church when I was 8 years old. I have been attending continually since then because I have come to know for myself that Joseph Smith is a prophet. I know that God lives and that he loves each of us, his children. I know that he wants us to be happy and that he gives us experiences in life that help us learn and grow.

How I live my faith

I try to practice what I preach. Going to church and being and example has been the best way that I have gained a greater knowledge that the path that I am pursuing is pleasing to God.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Aaron
No we do not worship Joseph Smith. What we have is a healthy respect for the sacrafices and challenges he went through to restore the Church of Jesus Christ. Just like when Moses parted the Red Sea, the Isrealites would have been extremely pleased with his works :) Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

Aaron
We believe that immortality and eternal life are differnet things. Immortality is a free gift to everyone ever born on the earth. Eternal life is something that we earn (based on our works and desires). It is the ability to live with God again and enjoy all the blessings that he enjoys. It enables us to have a fulness of joy, to feel as our Father in Heaven and Jesus the Christ feel. Show more Show less
