Hi I'm Aaron Robles

Hey y'all, I'm from California. I grew up in Mexico. I'm a New Orleans Saints fan, an LSU fan and I am a Mormon

About Me

I'm 21 years old, and the only boy of my family besides my dad. I have 3 cute little sisters. I lived in Mexico most of my life. I'm currently living in Utah, and I'm a LDS Business College student. I play the piano since I was 9 years old. I like hiking and swimming. I'm a Super Mario fan, and love the Super Smash Bros Saga. I'm a Titanic maniac, and I love to build model boats. As for right now I have built 5 model boats and currently working on a 150 cm length RMS Olympic. I served a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the State of Louisiana. Ever since my mission I became a fan of creole style food like boiled crawfish, gumbo, and Jambalaya.

Why I am a Mormon

My family joined to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints since 1996 thanks to 2 young missionaries who knocked on the door, by that time, I was only 3 years old, I literally grew up as a Mormon, but when I was 13 years old I ask my parents if I can joined to another church, because I wanted to know which church was right. My Parents gave me a challenge, to read the Book of Mormon and to ask God which direction I should take. It took me a lot of time reading and praying to God, but finally, I receive my answers, I was reading in The Book of Mormon alone in my room, when I felt a warm feeling, and a peace inside of me, and I felt two hands on my head but nobody was there in my room, I was not scared, because of the peace that surrounded me, After that I felt a firm determination and a certainty that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true and only Church of God, in Which we can find the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, since that time to now, I am going to defend that testimony that I gain thanks to the counsel of my parents and that God Really answer a sincere Prayer.

How I live my faith

When I was 18 years old I decided to go on a Full-time Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Mormon missionaries are a group of young man and young women who voluntary serve other people and are there to give a helping hand to those in need, they serve for 2 years for men and 18 months for women, also they preach the words of Jesus Christ and His Gospel found in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Giving 2 years of my life to the Lord was an awesome experience that changed my life forever, I am grateful for this opportunity of serving the Lord.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We beleive that God has made a plan for all his children, it's called the plan of Salvation, or plan of Happiness. We know that we lived in a pre-mortal existence with God, our Heavenly Father, he create this earth and gave us the chance to come here, to have a phisycal body, ant to be happy. This life is a life of preparation, we can learn how can we can return to our Heavenly Father, the purpose of life is to be happy, and only by following the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we can become happy. By following the example of Jesus Christ, our life has more sense, and we can understand our nature as sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father Show more Show less
