Hi I'm Andrew Nielson

About Me

I'm the most awesome person you are ever going to meet (pride what?). I'm a chill guy who loves more than anything to laugh, and make others laugh. I'm the oldest of four kids and I love almost every minute of it. The church is everything that is important to me and I know that it's principles always lead to true happiness. Although an adrenaline rush is fun from time to time. :) haha

Why I am a Mormon

I was born under the covenant, or into my fathers faith. I always went to church and lived the gospel for the most part. But in my senior year of high school I was really tested. Was this something actually real, or was it just something my parents brainwashed me into believing? Over the course of that year I really wrestled with this. Most of my friends were not LDS and the ones that were, weren't the best examples. Then to add on to that I was involved with a girl who was not LDS. Because of all this I slowly faded away from the church. Then one night I was laying down and felt something in my head. I sat up and felt like my brain just twisted inside out. Then I knew I needed to get back and fix my life. Through constant study and prayer I simply knew (or gain revelation) in one instant that the church is true, the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a real living Prophet, and that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ all things can be healed. I now can never deny that my savior lives or the church which is his. I love him and the trials that he lets us go through. For through the furnace of affliction he will forge us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply living. Faith isn't just believing in something, it is doing something about it. God wants us to have tons of stuff but we have to live according to his word to get it. But over all I smile and have fun. We are all going to mess up one way or another but that's the whole point. As long as we really try everything will work out in the end. Right now I really live my faith by serving a mission!

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?
