Hi I'm Aaron

I'm an aspiring Filmmaker, and Film editor, an Artist, I enjoy being in the great outdoors, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was Born in Tempe Arizona, to two great parents. I have 2 younger brothers and an older sister. I am an Aspiring Filmmaker going to Film School. I want to be a film editor (The one who cuts the scenes together, producing the final story of a movie) and If I'm lucky enough and the right project comes along I'd like to Direct a movie. I've got a few Ideas of what that might be. I was a Boy Scout and earned my Eagle Scout. My Favorite Merit badges were Horsemanship, Archery, and of course Cinematography(Filmmaking). I went to serve a full time mission to Spokane, Washington but came back after 6 months because of medical problems. I had many great and spiritual experiences, even in the short time I was there and I met many good people who I got to serve and loved to see the joy the Gospel brought to their lives. I want to return on a mission soon. I'm a bit of a slacker, but I know God has a plan for me in life. I know that Christ is my Savior and the Gospel keeps me headed down the right path. I don't know where I'd be without it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both of my parents are very faithful members of the church and I see how the gospel has blessed their lives as well as mine because of it. Even with such great examples I had to gain a testimony of the gospel for myself. I can't say that I've read the Book of Mormon cover to cover(Although I've probably read each part of it at some point or another), but I know that it's words are true, I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet & by the direction of god, He translated the Book of Mormon. Every time I hear the account of His "First Vision" I feel the spirit more strongly than much else. I know that this church is Christ's church on the earth today, that it is led by Him through a modern prophet(Thomas S. Monson), and that God loves us (Everyone alive today) just as much as those in the Old Testament, New Testament, & Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I definitely don't have the answers to all life's questions , but I know where to find them, which is in the scriptures. I try to follow the teachings of the Gospel in my everyday life. I'm not always the best at doing it, but that's what the Atonement is for. I've seen the blessings in my life, as I strive to follow the commandments, and I don't know where I'd be without them. I have a calling as 2nd Counselor in the Elders Quorum (younger men's group). We have regular Sunday lessons, which I sometimes teach, and we often help people move into our congregation. It can be challenging but also very rewarding and I'm grateful to be trusted with the responsibility.
