Hi I'm Andy

I am a CEO. I am an entrepreneur. I am a husband and a soon to be father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest kid in my family. My Dad was in the military so we moved around every few years growing up. I am married and have our first kid on the way. I am an entrepuener and love trying hard to succeed at business. I have a passion for hard work. I really enjoy running the company I own with my business partner. I enjoy playing golf (although I'm not any good at it) and love to at the lake wake boarding. My family and my friends are really important to me. I try hard to be a good friend and a good son, brother, and husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for various reasons. First, because of my belief in Jesus Christ. This church teaches about the Savior and how to be more like him. I love that our religion actually requires something of you. People often comment that Mormons are different. We believe that you need to be like the Savior, that how you live your life actually matters. We believe in doing more than attending church. We believe we need to live the standards we believe in - that we need to work hard to be Christlike. This differs from a lot of people that believe in God and the BIble but don't practice many of those beliefs. Don't get me wrong - I'm not perfect at doing everything in a Christlike manner in my life. In fact, at times I am frustrated with myself because I think I could have been nicer to someone or handled a situation better. However, I love belonging to a church that teaches we should be accountable for our actions - that we need to work hard to be good, Christlike people. One of the other reasons I am a Mormon is because I love the fact that no one in this Church tells you that you need to just "trust them" and believe the principles taught. The Mormon church teaches that each individual needs to pray to know the truth of things on their own, not just trust someone else. I have prayed to know that what I believe as a member of this Church is true and firmly believe my prayers have been answered with a knowledge that what is taught is true.

How I live my faith

First and foremost, I try to be a good person. I try to find ways to help others. I try to be kind and compassionate. I don't want to be like everyone else there is in the world. I want to stand out as someone different, someone unique from the crass, harsh world we sometimes encounter. I am very active in my religion. At church I work with the youth program, specifically the teenage guys. I help put together activities for them that are fun and help them learn important principles of living a Christlike life.
