Hi I'm Aaron

I am a Mormon, or in other words a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.

About Me

I am a husband and a father. I also am a Physician and am awaiting acceptance into a post graduate training program. In the meantime, I am teaching high school. I enjoy doing many things including: family time, running, lifting weights, biking, yoga, watching sports, dancing, going to movies, eating out, reading, studying, learning, teaching, acting, and singing. I also love the outdoors and like to camp, hike, canoe, raft, and go cliff jumping. I have worked many different jobs and have lived in many places.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints because I have received a special witness from the Holy Ghost that this is God’s true church and that it is lead by Jesus Christ Himself through His living prophet. There is a chapter in the Book of Mormon that describes my conversion very well. It is found in the book of Alma chapter 32. 28 Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves—It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to eenlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me. As a young man I experienced the very feelings described in this passage of scripture but I have had many spiritual witnesses since then of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is His church. I invite you to try the experiment; come visit us at church, talk to our missionaries, read the Book of Mormon and pray about it and be sincere because if you try this experiment sincerely, I know that our Father in Heaven will let you know that these things are true.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a way of life for me. I live my faith by loving my wife and my children and spending time with them. My number one calling is to be a husband and father. To provide for them, protect them, and to lead them by example in righteousness. We go to church every Sunday as a family and my wife and I try to go to the temple often. I also live my faith by praying to our Heavenly Father mornig and night and throughout the day. I listen for HIs guidance and try to do what He would have me do. Of course, I am not perfect, and when I make mistakes/sin, I live my religion by putting my faith in Jesus Christ and repenting of my sins.
