Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a college engineering student. I love soccer, basketball, and playing the piano with my wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college Chemical Engineering Student. I love math, science, chemistry, and biology and trying to solve problems. I love playing soccer, basketball, and football and love watching about every sport. My wife and I also like to play the piano and sing along with all kinds of music, especially country music. I also like to work out, go on hikes and camp with my wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because because I experience every day the joy that comes from living after the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My parents are Mormon, and they taught me about the church and Jesus Christ. One day as a teenager, though, I was having a really bad day and so I prayed to our Heavenly Father because I felt like I had no one else to talk to about my problems. As I prayed, I felt an overwhelming feeling of love, peace, and closeness to my Heavenly Father like I had never felt before. I knew from that point on that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true, Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and the Book of Mormon and Bible are the word of God. I also knew from that experience, that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and that He loves me and guides this church. He does this by sending a modern prophet to show us the way. My wife and I still follow Christ's Gospel because we know that the power to keep our family together forever is held in this church. It has helped me be happy every day and has helped me become closer to my wife and family. I want that happiness, closeness, joy, and peace for my future children and grandchildren.

How I live my faith

I am involved in helping young men develop their testimonies of Jesus Christ and helping them learn essential life skills through scouting and other organizations. I like to participate in service activities to help the elderly and help give people a better life. I have helped coach high school soccer, and love teaching young men about respect, hard work, teamwork, and setting goals. My wife and I enjoy building our family relationships by serving in temples dedicated to the Lord.
