Hi I'm AJ
Hmmm....My name is AJ, and I like to party! ("I know for a fact that you do not party!") Anyways, I am 21 years old and I live in good old North Carolina. I like listening to music really loud, going to Taco Bell, and I am a big Harry Potter fan!!!!!!!!!!!! I have three younger brothers, who are almost as cool as me, but not quite (sorry guys)! Some intersting things about me....I like to sing, people tell me I sound like Justin Bieber (just kidding, I don't sing very well, but I like to do it.) I am a fan of SportsCenter and Spongebob Squarepants, in high school I ran track and cross country, I hate pasta, but I really like chinese food! My favorite animal is the Beluga Whale (don't ask me why, it just is haha), and I am an expert on Guitar Hero. I guess to end this little "about me" portion I will give you a little more information about myself....though up to this point I have just stated a bunch of random things, I really am a pretty down to earth guy, who loves to spend time with his family and friends. I am studying to pursue a career in broadcast journalism, and I hope to one day become like Ryan Seacrest...wish me luck! :)
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I know that God lives and loves me. I have felt his love and seen all that he has done for me. Because he loves me, I was blessed to have parents who taught me how to be a good person and to follow Jesus Christ in all that I do. I am so grateful that my parents were there to help me wake up for seminary (5:30 am EVERY DAY) and to take me to church on Sundays. Without them, I don't know where I would be right now. I know that I am sealed to my family and that if we are all faithful, we will be together FOREVER! I am a Mormon because there is a living prophet leading and guiding, so that we can know what our Heavenly Father would have us do. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's kingdom here on the earth! I know that through Faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism by immersion, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end, that we can return to live with our Father in heaven and have eternal happiness.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by trying my hardest to keep God's commandments, and to do all that I can to become more like Jesus Christ. I will never be perfect, but I keep trying to improve. I live my faith by studying the scriptures, I know the Bible and the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I live my faith by trying to help others. I am not a famous celebrity or an important person in the eyes of the world, but I know that I can help others come closer to Christ by the example that I set for them.
