Hi I'm Aaron Miller

I grew up in Yucaipa, California. I am the youngest of ten siblings. I love having fun and playing sports! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of a huge family! I have six brothers and four sisters. I also have twenty five nieces and nephews. I love my family, and they mean alot to me! I love baseball, cycling, and pretty much any sport. I am from California so I was able to go to the beach alot. I love surfing and having bonfires at the beach! Right now I am on a mission in Richmond, Virginia. Before I came on my mission I went to a community college in the city I live in. I also worked for one of my brothers during that time. I plan on being a doctor or a dentist, so I have lots of school left ahead of me. I love living my life to the fullest, and look forward to what the rest of my life has in store for me!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Letter Day Saints for my whole life. I went to church every Sunday with my parents and siblings. I always felt good when I went to church and church activities. I never really realized how much the gospel has blessed my life until I started preparing for my mission. Once I started preparing myself to serve a full-time two year mission, I came to realize that being a mormon has shaped who I am. I found several main points of why I am Mormon, and why I will remain faithful in Christ's church my whole life. First, as members of the church, we have the knowledge that families can be together for time and all eternity. I have an immediate bond with this, because I have a huge family and I could not be happy without being with them forever. Next, I know that Jesus Christ came to earth to atone for my sins. It is such a relief to know that when I mess up or make a bad decision, that I can repent and be cleansed of everything I have done. Knowing everything that Christ went through for all of us, makes me strive to be the best I can everyday of my life. Lastly, I am a Mormon because I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who restored Christ's church back to the earth to help us in our lives right now. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ when he went to pray to know which church is true. I am grateful that I can pray just as Joseph Smith did, and receive an answer to any of my questions or concerns. I am a Mormon because I know it is true and I LOVE it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many ways! I am currently on a mission for the Lord in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I have left behind all of my personal affairs to be a missionary! As a missionary I do my best to talk to everyone that I see and to teach them about Christ, and to share my faith with them. I do service in the community and go from door to door trying to find those who are willing and interested to strengthen or create their faith in Christ.
