Hi I'm Aaron

I grew up in Az. I have been very blessed in my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old and i love sports. i ran track in college, but love any sport i have time to play. I am very close to my family, especially my dad. I love being outdoors. Hiking and running are things that i do often. I love mexican food and cheesecake, but not together. I went to one year of college and then decided to serve a mission for my church.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a religious family and was raised learning about and going to the mormon church.I was baptized when I was 8 years old. In high school I decided to explore other churches, so i attended some different friend's churches. Finally, towards the end of high school, I decided i wanted to know which church was true. My parents had taught me how to pray and prayer was a regular practice in our home. I prayed to god with a sincere heart to know if the teachings and things I had learned growing up in the church were true. I felt a strong peace and warmth and knew that God was answering my prayer. As I decided to take my religion more seriouslyseeing as God had witnessed to me that it was true and important my faith grew and my desire to follow Jesus Christ increased. I have been so blessed as i have prayed and tried to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I know that God answers prayers because he answered mine and i know that God put this religion in my life to bless me and help me know that he loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by helping others feel the joy that has come to me by being faithful. For a short time i was in charge of the young boy scouts. I go to church each sunday now. The most important things for me are prayer and study of the Bible and Book of Mormon each day. As I do these things, my Faith grows and i have joy and happiness in my life that only comes by following God. Because This church has brought me such great happines and as I've come to know it is true, my desire to share it with others has grown. I decided to serve a mission for my church and it gives me the oppurtinity to be a full-time missionary. Each and every day missionaries share the teachings of Jesus Christ, of prophets in the Bible, And there own personal testimony to everyone they come in contact with. it is amazing to see the joy that this gospel brings.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Aaron
You can come to know that Mormonism is true by first learning about it. It is important to find out about it and learn about what it teaches before deciding if it is true. Take the chance to attend church one sunday. See how you feel when you are at church. Mormonism is centered on Jesus Christ and we love him very much. Another important part of our religion is the Book pf Mormon, which is another testament of Christ. Read from this book and ponder what you read. Now is the most important part and the way that you will know if Mormonism is true. Take your thought and questions to God. Pray to him and ask him if the Book of Mormon is true. Ask God if Mormonism is something he wants for you in your life. then listen to your feelings and thought and your prayers will be answered throughth the Holy Ghost. You will feel peace, happiness, and comfort and that is how you will know it is true. I promise that whoever prays sincerely and with intention to act on his/her answer to that prayer, will come to know what God want for them. God answers the prayers of everyone, if they are sincere and by faith. That is how i have come to know of the truthfulness of mormonism. Show more Show less
