Hi I'm Aaron Driscoll

I am a father of 5 children and I love to serve others. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 5 children ages from 16 to 4 years old. I am a general contractor and enjoy sports. I enjoy supporting my children in their sporting hobbies as well.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of the church so growing up I attended church with them. As I grew up I had opportunities to study the scriptures and pray to my Heavenly Father about the truthfulness of what I read. The Holy Ghost whispered to my heart that what I read was true. I also had other opportunities to feel the spirit as I attended church meetings and other activities as a youth in the mormon church. When 19 years old I had the chance to serve a mission in Japan and while there shared my feelings with people I came in contact with. Something about verbalizing what you believe in re-affirms that belief. When the Spirit touches you and validates your beliefs you know it is from Heavenly Father. I know through these small experiences and many others that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Jesus Christ church on the earth today. I also know through feeling my Heavenly Fathers love that I am a son of his and that I have an eternal purpose on earth. My faith in my Savior is core to who I am and who I want to be. It influences every aspect of my life. As a father and as a husband and as a member of society. It has shaped my life and I feel that it has benefited me beyond my comprehension.

How I live my faith

In my ward I serve as the bishop. This means that I have the opportunity to help teach the youth of the church. I also have the opportunity to help adult members fulfill their church responsibilities, as parents and as adults. I am able to serve the people who attend church by asking them to give talks in meetings, or I can ask them to offer prayers in our meetings. As members of the church we serve as volunteers where in other faiths they may have paid clergymen who help the church function. As the Bishop of the Ward where I live I have the opportunity to ask the members to serve as volunteers to help the Lord's work in the church. This is very humbling and spiritual. It is through the coordinated effort of all the members in the congregation that our church functions and as Bishop it is my responsibility that this happens. It has allowed my life to be enriched more than ever before. I also serve as a Home Teacher with responsibility over 4 families. I call on these 4 families monthly to be of service to them. As a Home Teacher I make sure they are reading the scriptures and praying together as a family. As a father and husband my faith helps me direct my family in the beliefs we have as members of the mormon faith.
