Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a Tradie and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a dairy farm beside the mountains not too far from a small town in the country. I enjoy hard physical work and spending time in the outdoors; especially camping and hiking, throw in a little rock-climbing for the icing on the cake. Started University, studying nursing the year I was married finished my degree then worked as a nurse for a few years. Turned out it wasn’t my thing so I quit and did a carpentry apprenticeship, just so happened that this was my thing, luckily cause the wife was getting a little cranky at my occupational indecision. By this time I had a family of four small children with two of each. These days I spend my working days building residential dwellings with my brother.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into this church, I did choose to be a Mormon and I continue everyday to make that choice. I have had the opportunity to see how life is for me when I was being selfish and doing what I wanted when I wanted and who cares about the consequences. During this time of me me me, my father died suddenly, which gave me a chance to think about my life and what I REALLY wanted, it made me think about my beliefs, and how although my dad had just passed away I did not for one moment doubt that I would ever see him again. I gave me that chance to think about the importance of family, and how families can continue beyond the grave. Mostly I thought that if I ever wanted to see my dad again, if I every had my own children and wife that I would want to have them with me forever. And in order to do that I knew I had to do what Heavenly Father and Jesus wanted me to. And ever since then I had many experiences that have lead me to the knowledge that this is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth and through the gospel I can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith these days, hopefully by my actions. I do have a responsibility at my local church where I get to spend time with everyone from the children and adults to the seniors. Mostly though I try to spend my time at church with the youth, they help me stay happy and down to earth. I’d like to think that I live my faith best as a father and a husband. To me family is the most important thing. My being a Christian example to them and teaching them to have love for everyone, values and moral standards is I think the best work that I could ever do.
