Hi I'm Drew

I went to school in Boston. I work for a children's book company. I'm a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona. Served a mission. Then moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. Two years through school I decided I needed a break, so I moved back to Arizona for a time, and that's where I met my wife. We got married three months after we met. I took her back to Boston with me to finish up school at Berklee. I LOVE music. I'm a singer/songwriter with a minor in Business. I play the guitar and sing and write my own songs. I've been married for two years now, and I have a baby on the way! Really excited about that one, to be a dad, I hope I raise this kid right. There are so many ways to raise kids, it seems like you could so easily mess it up.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe in a true and living Prophet. I'm a Mormon because I truly feel that it is the only religion that will bring me eternal happiness, the only religion I've found that really answers the questions of life. I've talked to people of other religions, none of them have the answers that I've found as a Mormon. It just makes so much sense! It literally fills the need to have a purpose in this life. It strengthens my faith in God and Christ and gives me so much motivation to do good and be christlike. It provides me with a plan, that if I life God's commandments, then I can live with my family again after this life, with Christ, forever.

How I live my faith

Every day I try to wake up with a new resolve to live the Gospel of Christ. To be a good neighbor, husband, brother, employee, and every other role I have. After serving a mission for the church, I realized how important it is to be committed and involved in the community, to help all of those around us. I learned how critical it is to "live" your faith, instead of just talking about it. So many people just talk about what they believe, but truly LIVING it is the challenge! Reading my scriptures and studying the truth daily is just not enough. I try to practice the principles of Honesty, Forgiveness, Patience, and so forth, in all of my relationships and in everything I do. The Gospel helps us know how to live.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another book of scripture that helps us better understand Christ and why he leaved. In ONE sense, The Bible tells us "WHAT" happened with Christ, and The Book of Mormon helps us understand "WHY" it happened. It's a book that teaches about a separate people who lived in Ancient America, who had prophets and taught about Christ. They lived during the same time as those people in Jerusalem, only across the planet in Ancient America. It's proof that God loves ALL his children, where ever they live, in whatever time they live in. The Book of Mormon is a life changing book, one that deeply strengthens faith in God. And it was translated by Joseph Smith the Prophet, as one of his "fruits" that he brought to the world to show he was a true prophet. Read it and find out! Show more Show less
