Hi I'm Andy N.

I love adventurous activities. I work and I play hard and...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to ski! H2O or snow! I spent my elementary school years in Alaska. It was there that I found my love for the outdoors. My fantastic parents took me skiing at a young age. This became a passion for me. I remember working during the summers to earn enough money to buy new ski equipment and lift tickets. Now, I feed that passion by teaching my 5 children the joys of skiing and being outdoors. I enjoy running and cycling with my wife. We have competed in a few triathlons together. She is an inspiration to me. She is a goal setter and disciplined enough to accomplish great things. My career is in the Pharmaceutical Industry. I enjoy healthcare and understanding the human body. God has performed miracles with His amazing creations. The human body is one of His most amazing miracles.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a family that did not attend church. In my senior year of high school I began to question whether God existed. This led me to attend church services with various friends. I was able to visit a few different churches and I really enjoyed building a faith in God and His Son Jesus Christ. I feel very fortunate to have friends who shared their beliefs with me at a time where I was searching for meaning to my life. I was taught about prayer and the value of communication with my Heavenly Father. Slowly, I received answers to my petitions to God. I know that the Spirit of the Lord will direct us as we faithfully seek God's guidance. I have been blessed to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that He has a plan for my happiness in this life and that there is purpose to my existence here. Through Jesus Christ, I am filled with a hope of life after death. I know that the family relations I have been blessed with here on Earth are meant to continue through the eternities.

How I live my faith

My love of the Savior, Jesus Christ, leads me to voluntarily give of my time and talents in His service. I have seen the gospel heal people from many maladies, help people through trials, and bring purpose to their life. The principles of the gospel have impact on everything in my life. I try to keep the commandments because I have seen the peace and happiness it brings. I love to go to church for fellowship and learn of the good word.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Andy N.
The Holy Ghost has a special purpose to reveal truth, bring comfort in times of need, and teach us. I have had the influence of the Holy Ghost confirm truth to me. This is how I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was called as a prophet. Show more Show less
