Hi I'm Drew

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

HI my name is Andrew I'm from Southern California. I am currently a pre-med student majoring in exercise science and minoring in Arabic. I like playing sports including basketball, volleyball, and soccer. I enjoy surfing and skating as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Jesus Christ and follow His gospel because I find that I am happiest when I do so. As I draw closer to Him, I feel and recogonize more manifestations of His love in my day to day life. I am a Mormon because I want to draw closer to my Savior and Redeemer through out my life. For me, following the teachings of this Church helps me to do that. I find a lot of understanding from the Church's teachings especially about who we are, where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going after this life. It makes so much sense to me and brings an indescribable and irreplacable inner peace. I am so grateful to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I primarily live my faith by trying to act as Christ would act in every situation. Then when I make a mistake, I try to humbly correct it through repentence. I big part of worshipping God for me is to serve others so I try to pray each morning for an opportunity to help someone in need. Although I do not do this anymore, for a while I organized monthly service projects for the community and invited fellow church members to participate. It was extremely rewarding and fun. I've learned that by serving others we naturally become happier, more confident in ourselver, and closer to God.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Mormons believe the Bible to be Holy Scripture. I often read and gain strength from the Bible especially when I read the testimonies and stories of the many courageous men and women who overcame obstacles to follow God's command. The Bible contains testimonies of Jesus Christ as our Savior as well as His teachings and commandments and Mormon's study it as the Word of God. Show more Show less
