Hi I'm Aaron Ferguson

I listen to, create, and perform music. I rock climb. I love psychology and helping others overcome their trials. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small city in Texas where sports were really big. I always loved being active and I played almost every main stream sport growing up. I realized that I loved being active in other ways too so I played in bands, wrote my own songs, joined a performing arts group, studied in school and made very good grades, participated in some leadership groups. I also learned a lot about psychology and had the chance to apply that knowledge several times to help my friends and other people overcome different challanges. I started rock climbing and realized how amazing it is to be able to push your body to its limits and be creative in finding a way to get to the top of a cliff. I have attended to Brigham Young University and my studies help me learn and continue to grow. I am currently serving a two year mission for the Lord in Chile. I love challanging myself and finding new ways to improve and branch out.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I never lived exactly the way that I was told. I made a lot of mistakes which put me into a minor depression. I took me many years, but when I was seventeen I bore my testimony for the first time publicly. I told the people around me what I believed and why. I felt the Savior's love so strongly in that instance and I knew that He loves me. After this experience I have always strived to live the way that the Savior would have me live. As I do this I feel good about myself and what I am doing. I have a purpose and I have never felt like I didn't matter. I love how absolutely happy and freeing this religion is!

How I live my faith

I have served in a lot of way in and out of the church. I recieved my Eagle Scout award and I try to continue giving service to the community. While I attended college, I taught a gospel doctorine class every other sunday. I absolutely love helping other people and sharing my experiences with anyone who wants to listen.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Aaron Ferguson
Joseph Smith was just a normal person. It is what he did that makes him so important to us. Through him God has given us the Book of Mormon, the priesthood, and an example of how to live even when others don't agree with our views. We worship only God, and Joseph Smith has given us the tools to know how. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Aaron Ferguson
The mormon lifestyle is to try to be our best at whatever we do. We live according to the commandments of God, and we try to develop our talents to help others. I love pushing myself in whatever I do because I know that if I give it my all, others can be inspired to do the same. Show more Show less
