Hi I'm Andrew

I grew up in Springfield, OR till I was eight. I love life, cars, and Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love cars. My dream job is to work and design cars. I also love to play sports, baseball in particular, but as long as it has a ball and friends to play with I am down for playing. I love Brasil because I lived there for two years and it was some of the best two years of my life. The food there is incredible and goes right along with the people there. I am going to school at BYU-Idaho and love learning. School was something that I have always taken for granted but being able to be here is just amazing. I love my family and you could call me a softy with how much I love them and my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Every since I was a live I came to church with my parents and they taught me everything, but there came a point in my life when I wasn't living at home and I saw how I didn't have anything to support me but myself. I found out that I could do what every I wanted to do. I slowed down going to church and a lot of other things. But there was a time when I really wanted to know for myself if this church was true. I had heard countless times in how people would say "I know..." but I never could. Then one day in the library I was sitting and thinking about the Book of Mormon and I had a feeling stronger than any I had ever felt before. I felt a peace or serenity or something and I just felt that the Book of Mormon is true and so is the church. After that answer from the Lord I have never questioned if this church is true or not. I know that this is the church of God and that he guides it and through it he guides us. I feel so grateful for having it and for having a prophet today to guide and direct us.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday and often we have activities during the week and I go to those. When they ask for help in the church I try to always be there to help with whatever they need. I also have a job of teaching a class in church where we talk about the scriptures and how they can apply to us in our times. I don't do this every week but I do when they ask me to.
