Hi I'm Andre

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Edmonton, Alberta. My father, my wife and our 2 boys are the only members in my immediate family. They are all very good examples to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've always felt that religion was something we practice more than just on Sundays. I've always believed that we are known for doing service and I want to be like that and be with people like that. As with most people, I struggle living my religion on a Full Time basis, but I know it's the right way to be and so I'll never stop trying. There are many good examples of Christ Like people in our ward and I'm proud to know them all.

How I live my faith

I live my faith, by getting to work with our Youth every week. They are so full of the spirit and so mature for their ages (mostly) They all have their own challenges and it is inspiring to me as I watch them grow and overcome difficulties in their lives. I have been in the scouting program at least 3 different times now, and each time I come back, the experience is better than it was before. I know that the Youth in our church are helping me grow spiritually. I love them all.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

I think that our church is growing so well is because of the way the world is changing today. Other religions seem to change their doctrines (core beliefs) as the world changes. Some religions even make changes to attract more people. I believe that what the scripture said 100 years ago has the same meanings today and that we should not change because the world changes. It doesn't mean that we don't embrace modern technologies, but that we look at them as way to help us move forward. We are still aware that there are good things about progress, but that there is also a "down side" to it as well. I think families and individuals are looking for a shelter from the storm. They want reassurance that doctrines and beliefs are unchanging and that there is a steady hand (Prophets) guiding the church. Show more Show less
