Hi I'm Andrea

I'm a college student, sports lover, and reader. I'm a mormon.

About Me

 I love reading! I love finding new books and I would spend all day in Barnes and Noble if I could. I love being around people and making new friends. I also talk a lot, or so I'm told. I am attending college right now and am enjoying every minute of it, even the difficult parts! I'm studying history, it sounds boring, but trust me, it can be fun. Traveling is also a fun thing that I do. I go with my family every summer and we've been to a lot of cool places. My favorite place I've been to was New York. I loved being there! I love being outside playing volleyball. I am an avid football and basketball fan and I love watching it! I love hanging out with my family and my friends. I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love the gospel and its teachings. Truly it has been a blessing in my life.  

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in the church, but that doesn't mean that I haven't had my own conversion story. I had to find out for myself if the church was true. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed to know if it was true. It wasn't an overwhelming feeling that you hear some people get, but I felt a sense of peace and I knew that it was true. I am a member because I have found out for myself that this is the true church. We have all the knowledge of the gospel and it truly is a blessing in my life. The gospel just makes sense to me and I want to share it with others around me. We are children of our Heavenly Father and He loves us. We are not here by mistake. Jesus Christ is his son, and it is through him that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. We have a prophet who is called of God to help guide us and if we obey we will be blessed and protected. This is the true church here upon the earth will all the blessings and knowledge.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving those around me and lifting others up. I have made humanitarian kits, sewed blankets, and donated food and clothes to those in need. I want to live the gospel to the fullest and do what Christ would have done. Helping those around me helps me feel the love of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and for the person I am serving. I also visit two women every month to see how they are doing, if they need help, and to share a message from our church leaders. I do this to strengthen those around me and to strengthen myself.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

 Husbands and wives can be together forever if they are married and sealed for time and all eternity in a temple. Not only can husbands and wives be together forever, but so can their children. Families are essential and they can be together even after death has separated them. Families are forever.  Show more Show less
