Hi I'm Aaron

I'm Aaron. I ride unicycles and play piano (not at the same time). I'm an artist, computer guru, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a farming area, and really enjoy the city. I love drawing, playing improv on piano, and being a good friend. I enjoy video games, but I end up spending most of my time obsessively tinkering with computers. I'm interested in psychology, technology, and music and hope I find a career that I enjoy. I'm currently working through school and thinking about starting a family of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I see so many good reasons to be one. I am not always sure there is a divine plan leading us through life, but I see so much good come from this group of people's influences. I sometimes wish I understood all of God's reasons for life, but I understand a lot. And I feel comfortable exploring what seems to be an endless flow of goodness from the gospel of Jesus Christ as restored by Joseph Smith. From all my study of Joseph Smith, I believe he was a prophet like any prophet of old. He put incredible effort into helping others find peace and hope in this life. I also have to mention that I never would have held on to the happiness of the gospel without the love of my family as an example. I'm so grateful for them. I believe this Church is true. One day in the summer of 2016, I had decided the Church and God, and Christ were all a silly result of human imagination and false hope to satisfy our fear of reality. That night, I laid my head down on my bed and saw atoms and particles crashing around in chaos. And I thought, if there were no reason for these creations, there would be no reason for anything, and that idea filled me with fear. Later, I thought, why not have a little faith, because *what if* there is a reason for all this. What if there's truth in the gospel. That moment led me to where I am today. And I'm grateful for it. I would ask anyone to have a little faith.

How I live my faith

I attend church each week and spend time every day thinking about how the gospel applies to my life. I try to be a good older brother and a good friend to anyone who needs one, and I like buying gifts for people who need help. I enjoy listening to the scriptures on a (nearly) daily basis. I also enjoy music that illustrates the bigger picture of life. I like to spend time using my understanding of science and principles of the gospel to understand the world.
