Hi I'm Andy

I am from a small town. I am a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Herriman Utah, where I have lived all my life until my mission. I love the small town feel that it has and the wide open spaces. I am an outdoors person, and I love to camp and hike. After I graduated from high school, I went to college for a year before I started serving a mission. I hope to eventually go into mechanical engineering, particularly the aerospace industry.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My parents are both members, but I eventually needed to know for myself if it was the true church. I read the Book of Mormon from start to finish, and prayed to know if it was true. I will never forget the answer I got: it is true. I didn't just know it, I felt it. Since then, my testimony has become my most precious possesion. In a world where everything seems to be constantly shifting and changing, the knowledge that God loves me and that Jesus Christ gave his life for me has been the one constant that I can always count on. I have been blessed beyond measure because I live my life in the way that He would have me to live it, which is the main reason that I went on a mission: so that others can partake of His love and feel the redeeming power of the Savior.

How I live my faith

It comes from small everyday decisions- continually looking for opportunities to reach out to others and help them. I try to share it without being preachy or overbearing, and I try to live my life the way that Jesus Christ would have me to.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Andy
It is only through the Atonement of Jesus Christ that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Grace is the only way that we can have eternal happiness. To acess that grace, we need to do the things that He has asked us to do: have faith in Him, repent, be baptized by someone holding His authority, recieve the gift of the Holy Ghost, and follow Him and keep His commandments throughout our lives.
