Hi I'm Aaron

I am from Idaho and I am a farmer.

About Me

I was born in Utah and later moved to Idaho where my parents raised me on a farm. They taught me the importance of hard work. They also helped me develop a love for agriculture. I am in the process of receiving my bachelors degree in Agronomy. It is my hope to be able to farm one day on my own. Not only do I love farming, I hope to have the opportunity to work with my children as my father worked with me. Right now I have the opportunity to work for the LDS church on a welfare farm close to my home town. We have the opportunity to grow wheat, beans, and sugar beets. The crops we grow are used to benefit people around the world. I also love working on farm equipment, pickups, and some cars. I enjoy snowmobiling in the winter and boating in the summer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have put forth the effort to apply the gospel teachings in my life and gain my own testimony of this religion. I have read the Book of Mormon several times, along with the Bible, and I know these sacred works are inspired by God and written by his prophets. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet because I have fasted and prayed to know. My Father in Heaven has taught me these truths through the power of the Holy Ghost. While I do not dare to discount the good in other religions, I have come to know that this gospel is the way back to our Heavenly home. I worked as a missionary in California a few years ago. I had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people. I came to know that God loves all his children throughout the world. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches all members of his church to love all, and serve them. I try to follow the example of the Savior and live his teachings.

How I live my faith

I seek to live my faith by loving and serving God's children. I have had numerous opportunities to serve in the Savior's church and have been blessed for my efforts. I am continually trying to improve my life by being obedient to God's commandments and I seek to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I am always working to reaffirm my testimony and build my faith in Christ.
