Hi I'm Graeme

I'm a mechanic, I'm an aspiring musician, I'm a son and eldest brother, I love video games and staying up late, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

My name is Graeme Newman. I'm 22 years old. I have two younger siblings; Josh, who is 19 years old. And Cara, who is 18 years old. I love them both with all of my heart. I LOVE Rock music, (80's hair bands in particular). I am an aspiring guitarist (and have recently developed a desire for the piano). I've been teaching myself how to play both instruments (I recommend learning while you're young). I plan on going to school to learn how to play these fantastic instruments, and possibly go into musical theory. I am a dreamer. My dream (as of right now) is to go to school and get my masters degree in psychology. I would love to use my knowledge that I obtain through doing this to be a high school counselor and/or marriage and family therapist. I also dream to get married and have kids of my own one day. I'm mechanically inclined. I enrolled at Weber State University in Ogden Utah and majored in Automotive Technology. I received manufacturer specific training under General Motor Corporation. I was employed at Riverton Chevy/Olds as an apprentice technician. I performed diagnosis and repair and preventive maintenance on various GM vehicles. I am now currently serving a mission in the California Santa Rosa Mission. For my age and in this point in my life, deciding to serve a mission was the best decision I could've made. I'm learning so many valuable life lessons. Not only that...but I'm learning more about myself than I ever thought I would.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith. Growing up however I was not the best example of what a Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) should be. After much pondering about what I really wanted in life, and with many great examples that entered into my life, I strived to live the best I could and be faithful to what I believed in deep down in my heart. I choose to live this faith because not only does it help me develope a loving and lasting relationship with the supreme being that created all that we see, feel, and hear, it helps me create loving and lasting relationships with my family and friends. Living this faith helps me grow in ways that I in no other way would. It gives me SO much comfort and peace to know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me dearly and wants nothing more from me than to do my best so that I may return and live in His presence. It gives me hope to know that everyone under the sky (and those that have passed) can have the same opportunity that I can. It gives me joy to know that our Father in heaven wants to have joy. He wants us to live life to the fullest. He gives us commandments not restrict us, but to set us free. Through Jesus Christ and his gospel we all can be set free.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow the example of my Savior Jesus Christ. However, no one is perfect. We all make mistakes. That's what the Savior is for, so we can be cleansed from all that is wrong and unfair and from all of our imperfections and mistakes that we make. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. As members we are to share this message of the Savior. I'm doing the best I can to spread the good news.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The first thing that you need to know is that God and His son Jesus Christ live, and that they love you and know you personally. God knows and wants what is best for you. He has given us additional scripture comparable to the Holy Bible. By reading the Book Of Mormon, pondering it's message, and asking God through prayer if the Book Of Mormon is true; God will answer your prayer. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Faith: something hoped for which is not seen. In other words; you know something is there, but you can't see it. For example; gravity. You know it's there, but can you see it? You can see what it does, but you cannot see the actual force of gravity. Another example; Love. Love is a powerful force that drives us to be better people. Just like love, faith is an action word. It drives us to act. So take action. Take that step into the dark, take that leap of faith. "For you shall receive no witness until AFTER the trial of your faith". -Ether 12:6- Show more Show less
