Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a native of Minnesota. I'm a graduate of Metropolitan State University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a graduate Metropolitan State University where I focused my studies on Human Resource Development. I served as an LDS missionary in Atlanta, Georgia. I enjoy playing my guitar, practicing my golf swing, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I first met the Mormon missionaries as a young boy. My parents had invited them into our home to share with us what they had to offer. As a youngster, I was pretty inattentive and rather hyper so sitting still while they taught my family was often a struggle. I do, however, distinctly remember the feelings I had whenever they were in our home. They explained to us that these feelings were given to us from a loving Heavenly Father so as to let us know that what they were teaching us was true. They taught us of a young boy who had his own struggles of knowing which church was the Lord's church. They told us that he had prayed to know the truth and had had a miraculous vision in which he saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and they essentially told him that he was to be called to restore the Lord's true church to the Earth. They taught us of the Book of Mormon, which Joseph Smith (that young boy) was led to and translated by the gift and power of God. They taught us of additional scriptures that we have been blessed with. We learned of modern-day prophets and apostles, the holy priesthood of God, and that families, through the Holy Priesthood, could be united for time and all eternity. I will be forever grateful to those two young men who had, several years ago, shared with us their Gospel message. Being a member of the church has made all the difference in my life. I cannot even begin to describe the feelings of immense joy the Gospel has brought to me, and to others who I have seen live it.

How I live my faith

I currently plan and schedule times in which members of the congregation to which I belong can attend the temple, which, to us is the most sacred of structures on the Earth. I find this very rewarding as I witness the faith of others in making time for regular temple attendance in our area.
