Hi I'm Heath Andreasen

I grew up in Vegas. I love being out doors. I am a student learning how to help others along the way and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the out doors and go rock climbing and hiking on my free time. I love any type of water sport including Wake boarding, Wake surfing, tubing, jet skiing and being with my friends. I am currently serving a mission for the Church in the Virginia Chesapeake mission!I know that this Church can change you life if you let it and if you try it!

Why I am a Mormon

There comes a point in everyone's life, whether a life-time member or a person who is investigating the church, when they have to decide why they believe they way they do. Sometimes this understanding comes over some time, other times it comes in a specific moment or over a series of events. For me, I came to understand my believes over a period of time. There have been multiple times when I've had the spirit confirm to me the truthfulness of the gospel. Whether it be in the outdoors praying to know if it's true, or simply kneeling down to pray with my family. I have gained a spiritual witness of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. These witnesses have always followed the counsel from a Book of Mormon prophet whom I love. He teaches us, "...that which is of God inviteth and enticeth to do good continually; wherefore, every thing which inviteth and enticeth to do good, and to love God, and to serve him, is inspired of God...." (Moroni 7:13) My faith has always enticed me and invited me to do good and to be a better person, therefore it must be from God. I know that our Heavenly Father lives and Loves us! I know that Jesus is the Christ and that they both appeared to Joseph Smith and ushered in the Restoration of the Gospel! I know these things because of the testimony I have in the Book of Mormon and you can too!

How I live my faith

Living my faith means to me that I need to be an example always to all those around me by becoming as much like my Savior as I can. I strive to help people out at every opportunity I can. Also by showing my love for other's by serving them. Sometimes it is difficult to live the way that I know I should when others around me aren't doing what I believe they should be doing. For me, I have determined before hand the things that I will and will not do and I stick to those things. When people come around and ask me to deviate from that path, because I have already told myself what I need to do, it is simple and easy for me to give them an answer that I know to be right. Lastly, I live my faith by striving to do the basic things such as, reading my scriptures, praying daily, going to church weekly and attending the temple as often as I can. These things help me to become a better person and in turn help those around me.
