Hi I'm Aaron

I live in Arizona. I work to get kids ready for college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For most of my life I wanted to be a doctor, so when I went to college I studied biology. About a semester before I graduated I was pondering quite a bit one day and decided that what I really wanted to do was make a difference for kids by teaching and maybe coaching football. I taught biology for a little while, and then got a call asking me to apply for a job with a program that worked to prepare students to go to college. I went ahead and applied, and have been doing that ever since. I also am an active Scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts of America, and serve on a couple district positions as well. My passion is working with youth, and especially with my own three kids. There is definitely nothing better than raising them alongside my sweet wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I have known since I was very young that Jesus loves me. Knowing that has made all the difference for me in life. I have tried to be the kind of person that reflects that love, and shares it with other people. I want more than anything else to be an influence for good, and the best way I know how to do that is by following the teachings of Christ, as contained in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Only in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints can you find clear and pure doctrine, authority, and the ordinances that will lead to salvation.

How I live my faith

I am serving a Sunday School Teacher and Scoutmaster for our ward. In the Boy Scouts I get to work with growing boys that truly desire to become great men, and their examples reach into the community as we work with other troops and as they participate in sports programs and other extracurricular activities. I am honored to work with them each week and to camp with them once a month. In Sunday School I teach the older youth in our ward, and am astounded by their spiritual maturity. Each week before the lesson begins we have a time set aside for them to ask any question about the gospel that they want. It is amazing to see and hear their deep understanding and to see them grow and develop.
