Hi I'm Andrew J. Barlow

I grew up in taylorsville utah. I'm homeschooled, and worked in retail for 5 years. I play my drums as a hobby. And I'm Mormon

About Me

My name is andrew barlow, I recieved my mission call to serve in the oregon portland mission. I'm very excited to go out and preach the gospel because thats what I love to do. my favorite topic is religion and I love helping people. I'm frozen foods manager for Harmons grocery stores in west valley utah. After my mission I'm looking to go back in retail and once I find out what I want to go into, go to school and get an education.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm mormon because I love the LDS faith because it has brought me peace, love, joy, and happiness to my life and I really can't go a day without prayer, or scripture study.Religion has made me the nice, selfless, and caring person that i am because thats what god expects of me. I've learned how much I appreciate what Jesus christ has done for all men by his atoning sacrifice so that all men may return to god once again and live with him for forever.

How I live my faith

I live it with humility, honor, and committment because thats what god wants from me and because it helps me grow spiritually. I pray every night and read my scriptures every night also. i know that as long as I keep my self clean, pure than I know that I will be worthy enough to enter into god's kingdom.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Andrew J. Barlow
Joseph Smith Jr. was born in 1805 in Sharon, Windsor County, Vermont, to Joseph and Lucy Mack Smith. He had 10 brothers and sisters. His parents taught him to pray, read the Bible, and to have faith in God. At age 14, as an answer to fervent prayer, Joseph saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, in his First Vision. At age 17, Joseph began to receive heavenly messengers who prepared him for his role in the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. He was a prophet, just like Moses, Isaiah and others in biblical times. He was strengthened by God to fulfill His mission much as was Jeremiah who said, “Ah Lord God! Behold I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak” Show more Show less
