Hi I'm Austin Lee

I'm from California, a husband, physician assistant student, cyclist and.... I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a Physician Assistant student at Western University of Health Sciences and will most likely specialize in dermatology or cardiology. I love to spend time with my wife cycling, playing games, playing with our teacup Yorkie, reading, playing the guitar or piano or just hanging out together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I feel and believe with all my heart that it is the one and only true church on the earth. I know that this is true because I prayed to Heavenly Father asking if this was the true church and it was revealed to me by the Holy Ghost that it is. I believe that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is true scripture. I know this because of the assurance that prayer and the Holy Ghost bring. I am a Mormon because through this Church and the restoration of the Gospel through Joseph Smith this church has the true power of God, the priesthood. By which ordinances may be performed and covenants may be made for our salvation and exaltation.

How I live my faith

I served as a missionary for the Church for two years and in that I taught as many of the Costa Rican people that wanted to listen to the message that we presented. I live my faith everyday by trying to be an example of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I read the scriptures and ponder upon it's principals then apply them into my life. I maintain daily communication with my Heavenly Father through prayer and live my life so that the Holy Ghost may guide, direct, and instruct me. I strive to continually make myself a better person although it is not easy it is definitely worth the effort. I love the Lord and appreciate all that He has done for me and I try to live my life how He would like me to live it. I find that serving people and being a missionary for the Church wherever I go is the best way for me to help build the Kingdom Of God. I live my faith by presenting the Gospel to the people that I am around everyday in normal conversation and by living Gospel principles. I do not take offense to those who do not have a desire to listen but I feel it is good to be a loyal friend to everyone. I love this Church, the Gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ and try to prove that by how I live.
