Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a Geologist. I'm a miner and so is my wife! And we're Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Canada with nice cold winters! Snowshoeing, skiing and skating are some of the things I love to do with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? I've never had a reason to doubt it. It makes sense. I'm a geologist and people ask all the time "How did you handle evolution in college?" I like to respond "I think I did well. I'm still a human." In my mind, science and religion are inseparable. Science is the development of mans understanding of God's creations and sometimes we find absolute truths and other times we have simply made another breakthrough in science on our way to finding more truth.

How I live my faith

Living my faith isn't something I consider as a huge life changer. We all have to work to make a living, we all have different talents and interests and I am happy to pursue all those. However, no matter what we do we can always find a way to help others and I think that is where I live my faith.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Aaron
The church donates money to countries and need. When we are serving our fellow brothers and sisters we our serving our Heavenly Father,God,who loves us.We are all his children.We seek to cloth the naked, feed the hungry, liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and afflicted (Jacob 2:18-19;The Book of Mormon). Being a memeber of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints,I have come to learn to love all my brothers and sisters.I became involved in my community many times with trail maintanence for walkers, runners, and bikers.I also participated in many community service projects through the Boy Scouts of America. My troop included other youth in my area and friends. We covered projects such as making toys for children in shelters where abused mothers have sought refuge. We also helped in the contruction of trails through forest to help elementary children and parents have faster and safer routes to walk home. We made quilts for the homeless and participated in large scale food collection and donations for families who were otherwise afflicted such as a widowed mother with children. These activities like many others are small examples of how I have learned to love my brothers and sisters. I saved up money and I now have volunteered years of service, putting aside everything, in order to share the gospel, or teachings, of Jesus Christ with everyone. I do this so that they can have more blessings and joy, no matter what trials they have, with their families. Show more Show less
