Hi I'm Aaron Foechterle

I'm serving in Turkey, I love bands like Mutemath, Radiohead, Coldplay, Arcade Fire, and Fleet Foxes, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, music, squirrels, The Book of Mormon, sticky notes, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Sherlock, bacon, Starcraft 2, Cafe Rio, raspberries, BYU, and many other things. I went to BYU for a semester and I've lived in Herndon, Virginia for most of my life and I loved living right outside of Washington DC. I've seen Muse and Radiohead live and both were amazing concerts. During High School and before my mission I worked at Chick-Fil-A which was great because it was such a great atmosphere to work in, I was able to get free meals, and I never had to work on Sunday. Some other music groups I like are Muse, Metric, Foster the People, The Gorillaz, Sleigh Bells, Neutral Milk Hotel, fun., The xx, Florence and the Machine, Anberlin, Noah and The Whale, Janelle Monae, Pure Reason Revolution, Ingrid Michaelson, Kimbra, Imagine Dragons, Pendulum, The Glitch Mob, The Temper Trap, and The Postal Service. Music is so important in my life as I love the experience of listening to a whole album from start to finish. The emotions the artists are able to convey through the lyrics and the music is absolutely amazing, and I love how different each music group is.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was little, before I got baptized I prayed about whether or not this church was true. Afterward I received my answer and knew that I should get baptized. From that day onward I knew that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the only true church on this earth. This church has the power to change lives and I have seen miracles happen according to my faith, and the faith of others. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us more than we can comprehend, and I love being able to rely on the Lord every day when I need the extra help. No matter what mistakes we make in our life, we can always repent and learn from them. These things have provided great strength in my life, and it because of this I have found much happiness and comfort, even during the most difficult of times.

How I live my faith

I can share the gospel with others every day. I am doing my best to represent him in the best way that I can so that others may know of the immense happiness that this Gospel has brought me in my life.
