Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a husband, a father, a student, an avid golfer, and a gym enthusiast and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

When someone takes a glance at me they may not think, "oh yeah, he's a marathon runner." But as a matter of fact, I just completed a marathon. I like to think that throughout my life I try and challenge myself and sometimes beat the odds. I am currently a pharmacy student living in Colorado. My days are spent with school, work as a local grocery store pharmacy intern, spending time with my wife and daughter, and the occasional TV show or sports game. My work is fulfilling. I like to have something I can offer to a wide range of people. I give advice on medications that can improve people's drug therapy and in some cases save their lives. I love being out doors, especially if that means I have a golf club in my hand. Hiking and newly found hobby of cycling are also high on my list.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. I have been taught Mormon principles my whole life. I have had parents and family members that have taught me how I should act and live. These persons have been big influences in my life, however they do not define my faith in God and Jesus Christ. Through experiences in my life, and my own God given ability to make my own choices I chose to be a Mormon. My choice came in college. I no longer had those influences near me. I had to decide what I wanted to do with my life. I chose to read the Book of Mormon and ask God If the LDS church was true, If the Book of Mormon was true, and if Joseph Smith was a prophet. I had a personal experience from God and a feeling from God that let me know that what I was searching for was true. I now know that with my faith in God and Jesus Christ I can get through life's challenges and hopefully learn more about myself along the way. My faith has taught me that repentance is possible, a forever family is possible, and living with God again is possible.

How I live my faith

Living as a Mormon may not seem like a simple lifestyle. I sacrifice activities in my life to live my faith. I have learned as I get older, that living the gospel and living my faith always brings joy. Right now I'm currently a youth leader, and a boy scout leader. It's a job that can seem fruitless, but my hope is that my young men will become honest husbands and fathers, and that some of the principles I try to teach to them will help them in their lives. I go through life like everyone else and many times just try to catch up, but my faith is what helps me reflect on how its going so far. I'm a husband, a father, a legalized pill pusher, a youth leader, and a Mormon
