Hi I'm Aaron

I grew up in Idaho. I'm going to college at BYU. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a father of two young boys, and husband to a beautiful wife. Professionally, I'm an actuary (risk management for insurance companies), and in my spare time enjoy building things, cycling, and roadtrips with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I had an experience when I was in high school where I was told by doctors that I wouldn't be able to participate in some of my favorite sports due to a medical issue. At that time sports were really important to me, so it was really crushing and made me wonder why this was happening to me, when I had tried so hard to do what was right. I opened the scriptures randomly, and happened to turn to a chapter in the Book of Mormon that spoke right to my soul and helped ease the pain. I have never had a chapter of scripture speak as directly to me as that chapter did. It helped put things in perspective and put me on the path that I'm on now, and I'm so grateful that the Lord loved me enough to put that trial in my life.

How I live my faith

I try to serve others as often as I can. Sometimes it's as simple as giving my bus pass to someone who is down on their luck and needs to get around, and sometimes it involves long term commitments, but I always find out that I get much more out of the service than I put in.
