Hi I'm Drew

I'm an athlete, deep thinker, i'm on a mission. I love God and i'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm from the most beautiful place on earth, Utah. I love alot of things. But i love God the most. I love the outdoors and i thrive in the mountains. That's where i feel closest to God and i can escape the world. I shout praises continually to Him for all the natural beauty of the earth. I'm a goof ball. I love laughing to the point that its probably not healthy. Family and Good Friends bring me so much joy in life. I'm a competitor. Sports have been a huge part of my life, even in college. Not being able to work out on the Mission has taken its toll, but its a sacrifice i've made for the Lord in a heartbeat. I've written in my journal everyday for 7 years now, and i feel a day not documented is a day not remembered. I believe music enhances everything about life, and i love to just sit and think about the wonders of life. I'm currently a Missionary for the church in Birmingham Alabama, and will shortly be serving the rest of my mission in Florianopolis Brazil (as soon as they send me my passport back....) And if it weren't for My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, i would be miserable forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it flat-out makes the most sense. The Gospel of Jesus Christ that has been restored to the earth by Joseph Smith is so deep yet simple, and it provides answers to life's greatest questions that you can't find ANYWHERE else. Knowing the plan that God has in store for us, while trying my best to live righteously, brings me all of the joy i recieve in this life. Why wouldn't you want to be a member of the exact Church of Jesus Christ?

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now as a missionary for the Lord Jesus. I go door to door to try and bring others to Christ, and i have seen people change their lives immensly for the best. Even though I am a flawed human and i fall at times, i try my best to do what He wants me to do, even if it means giving up sacrifices that would bring me temporary joy, but not lasting joy.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

The Bible is the word of God. But, it is not the fulness. After the disemobiment of Christs Church and the martyrdom of the apostles, the Church He established was lost. Yes, we had the bible to help lead and direct us, but there was still unswered questions about life and doctrine. Like baptism for instance. It was mentioned to be baptized and that Christ was baptized, but we still lacked clarity. God and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith as an act of love to His children. to restore that exact church of Jesus Christ to the earth and to expound and revive that one true gospel of Christ, with the foundation of Apostles, Prophets, and Christ being the Head of the church. It is a big claim we make, but it did happen and it was neccessary for the welfare of the human race. and I know its true by the power of the Holy Ghost. and you can too!! Show more Show less
