Hi I'm Abraham

I am a son. I am an older brother. I am a patriot. I am a baseball enthusiast. I love a good laugh. I love Jesus. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spent my childhood on the East Coast of the United States. Surrounded by culture and a population not too familiar with what Mormons are, I had the opportunity to connect with a diverse group of people. Through this, I grew an appreciation for universal truth and the fact that there are good people everywhere. As far as I go, I love to live life and just have a great time. I don't take many things too seriously for fear I might miss something important. I plan on attending law school and pursuing a career in law. Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to defend the country and make a difference. Currently I am finishing up my undergraduate degree at Arizona State University in Global Studies. I am a Phillies fan at heart. I have many childhood memories of my dad taking us to games and having a blast. I cherish those days and will forever be loyal to the game of baseball. I am an Eagle Scout with a profound respect for the flag, country, and freedoms found therein. I have played rugby at the collegiate level and continue to enjoy various other sports. I am interested in international affairs, travelling, history, politics, great music, and a good night out on the town with friends. Live life, laugh often, love Jesus...that's how I live.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because God loves me and decided I was worth paying attention to. As a 16 year old boy I stood at a choice; I could either follow the Gospel and teachings that my parents taught me from infancy, or take another path. After much searching, trial, error, debate, and thought, I found truth in the still voice of the Lord. He warmed my heart, gave me guidance, and showed me the way. I haven't really looked back since. I know through a series of events and feelings that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's Church. I know that the pieces needed throughout history lined up perfectly to make things happen in harmony with God's wishes, not mans'. I know that there is one God, one Jesus, a prophet on the earth today, and we can know all of this through prayer. God answers prayers, He answered mine.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through invitation. Inviting anyone to do anything wholesome is a great step toward being a good and faithful Christian. I live my faith through helping others find confidence in the fact that they can share what they know to be true. Trying to be the best man I can be and preparing myself to be the best husband and dad of all time is a pretty good way for me to live my faith. Faith without works is dead.
