Hi I'm Avery

I grew up in California. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old. I love martial arts, soccer, video games, movies, and lots of other things. Airsofting and cliff jumping are also pretty fun. I was born and raised in California, but am currently a missionary in Washington. I love talking to people about the Gospel and just about anything else. I will be going to school and majoring in Health Science to become a Registered Nurse.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to the Mormon church and I kinda always believed that it was right. I was raised with the standards and I saw how living them brought me happiness when I saw the unhappiness of those who didn't. The Book of Mormon was another matter. I didn't actually find out for myself if The Book of Mormon was a true book of scripture until I had left on my mission. I decided that if I was going to spend two years of my life teaching people about this I had better know for sure if this was true. I put it to the test through prayer. I prayed for what seemed like 10 minutes before I recieved my answer. My Heavenly Father answered my prayer through the feelings of the Holy Ghost. I knew that this was the truth, and I know it now.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday, keeping the commandments the best I can, and following the example that Jesus Christ set the best I know how. I try to be kind and charitable to others. I look for opportunities to serve people. I try to study the scriptures every day and apply the things I learn to my life. I think positively and I keep my thoughts clean.
