Hi I'm Andrew

I'm just an average guy. I love my wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attend BYU and am in my freshman year studying Civil Engineering. I'm an Eagle Scout and I believe in hard work. I served for two years as a missionary in Paraguay. I loved it there, met many extraordinary people, and hope to go back some day. I enjoy most sports, and I like trying to solve problems. Most of all, I love spending time with my wife. We like to experiment with cooking (even though we're not experts) and we enjoy exploring the world of Black and White movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I love learning about my Savior and His teachings. When I seek after Him, I feel and know I am doing the right thing. I have a firm knowledge that God loves us in such a manner that he has ordained men to lead us to Him. He calls prophets today and invites us to hear and listen to His words through their inspired guidance. I grew up a member of this church, and continue faithfully today because I know what I've been taught is true.

How I live my faith

I just try to improve every day, one day at a time. I find strength in reading about Jesus Christ and remembering Him often. Also, keeping a personal journal has helped me recognize blessings from my Heavenly Father. I try to thank Him often for all He has given me. My favorite day of the week is Sunday, when I am able to attend church, listen to the testimonies of others and strengthen my own. Aside from attending church, my Sundays are spent with my wife, as we often struggle to have time together during the week. I also use the Sabbath day to rest and rejuvenate spiritually. This includes doing things like reading good books, listening to the words of our prophet, or reading over my journals from my time as a missionary. In the church, we believe in selfless service to others, and that by serving others we are serving our God. I have the opportunity to serve in my church by looking after the spiritual and physical needs of families in my area. It has helped me be more conscious of my neighbors, grow in love for them, and remember them in my prayers. Even though our family is small--just me and my wife--we find that one of the best parts of each day is when its over and we kneel down together by our bed to pray. As we do so, we grow in love for each other and for our Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ, and we learn to rely on their help more every day.
