Hi I'm Aaron Steinman

I'm from New Mexico. I love music and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Southern California but my family moved around a lot so I have spent time in Washington, Utah, Texas, New Mexico, Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Well, I am a pretty chill dude. I love music, art, singing, and soccer but I am untalented so I am horrible at all those things. I tend to be a pretty quiet person but if you get to know me you probably won't be able to shut me up. I might be a little bit of a punk. One day I might try to start a band. I am a free spirit but not in a "hippie" kind of way. Also, if you call me a hipster I might cry. So basically my life revolves around my family, my friends, music, and God. Most importantly God.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that it is important to find happiness and joy in our lives. The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings me more joy than any other thing. The Gospel of Jesus Christ also helps to give me direction in my life. I know where I came from and where I can go after this life. If I trust in my Heavenly Father I know that he will guide me in all the things that I do. The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints is Christ’s Church restored to the Earth and is personally led by Jesus Christ through a prophet that speaks to us today.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything I do. I am not perfect and make lots of mistakes but part of living my faith is looking to Christ to help me overcome my mistakes. My faith is centered on the joy the gospel brings to my life so I try to live my faith by living a joyful life. I do my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I feel very strongly about the two great commandments. Love God and love your neighbor. I try to demonstrate that love through the way I live.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Aaron Steinman
Baptism is essential in our progression as children of our Heavenly Father. It is essential to our journey in following Christ. As one comes to know that the full gospel of Jesus Christ can be found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints they will want to be baptized by someone who holds priesthood authority.
