Hi I'm Elder Andrew Fox

I am a musician. I am a missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church in Carlsbad, California. I have a deep interest in music and how it can make a positive effect on the youth of the world now, and in the future. I have moved about 10 times in my life, so I have been able to see different parts of the Western United States. I have amazing parents that have raised me well! I have two brothers and a sister. I love this gospel SO much! That is why I am serving a mission, so that I can share the gospel with others so that they can receive the same blessing that I have received.

Why I am a Mormon

I never had any doubts regarding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One day, I was in a pioneer trek. I was struggling physically. We were told to go into the wilderness and study and pray alone. I was then given a letter from my Mom. She challenged me to pray and ask Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true for myself. I never thought about actually doing that. So I did. Nothing happened at first. I then walked back to the campsite. I laid down in my sleeping bag because I was sick. I then had an experience that I will never forget. I heard a voice. It said: You know it. And you know that you know it. The Holy Ghost confirmed the truthfulness of the gospel and the Book of Mormon to me. After that experience, I cannot, and I will not deny what I know. I know that the Book of Mormon is in fact the Word of God, that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and trough him, Heavenly Father began the last dispensation and restored the fullness of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I do my best to keep the commandments given to us by our Heavenly Father. I know that the commandments aren't just some restriction keeping us from having fun, but they are given to us so that we can be safe, and that we can be blessed. I strive to invite all to come unto Christ, and I strive to do so myself. When I come to Christ, he helps me grow and learn, to bless my life, and the lives of those around me. I love learning! The scriptures and the words of the Latter-day Prophets have increased my learning ten-fold.
