Hi I'm Andrea

I grew up in Michigan. I enjoy praying, gardening, hiking, reading, using sign language, and laughing. And I`m a mormon.

About Me

I served a mission for the Lord Jesus Christ in Anaheim, California. I am thankful for the opportunity I had to serve the Lord in that special way. I grew closer to Him during those eighteen months of service. I am learning American Sign Language, enjoy hiking in the mountains, serving others, laughing with friends, writing poetry, and getting stuck in my room with a good book. I`m a huge fan of eating ice cream as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Latter-day Saint religion. However, when I was young I was reading about the account of the prophet Joseph Smith`s vision of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. It touched my heart, and I thought, "If Joseph can get an answer, so can I." I went to the woods and offered up a prayer to our Father in heaven. I didn`t see a vision, but I felt the Holy Ghost enter my heart and I felt so happy inside. I knew that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ was true. And I have since then felt the Holy Spirit tell me again and again that Joseph Smith is a true prophet. And that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. We have a living prophet today. It is a blessing to be guided by revelation through a living prophet who speaks with God. Jesus Christ lives and loves us. God, our Heavenly Father, lives and loves us too. I know these things to be true with all of my heart. And I feel them to be true as well.

How I live my faith

I try to emulate my Savior Jesus Christ when I`m at home, school, church, or wherever I may be. He told us to follow His example at all times, in all things, and in all places. That`s what I`m striving to do. It`s simply marvelous to me that God and Jesus Christ love us enough to teach us how to become the best people that we can be.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

The missionaries will help you to find answers to questions such as "where do we come from?" "where am I going?" "How can I have peace in this life?" They will share a special message about Jesus Christ and his restored gospel with you. And they will be more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
