Hi I'm Aaron

I grew up in a small town. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. I grew up in a small town where there are only a few members. I found this hard sometimes because not everyone around me had the same values and beliefs. I now see this as a blessing because I have seen how my values and beliefs have made me the person I am today and how I truly am blessed when I stand for what I believe, even if I am the only one standing. I also have had many opportunities to share the gospel with others. Even if they do not accept at first I know a seed has been planted and one day they may see how it has blessed my life and will see how their lives may be blessed. I have not always been perfect and sometimes have strayed away, but Heavenly Father has helped me through my trials and tribulations and showed me the way back to the straight and narrow path. He has always showed me his love and has always blessed me when I do the things that I am supposed to do, which I am very thankful for. I am in college and trying to continue to develop the talents Heavenly Father has given me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am blessed to have had wonderful parents, great leaders, and great teachers growing up who taught me so much. When I strayed away Heavenly Father seemed to open my eyes the most and showed me that he wants to bless me, but I just have to do my part. I have always known the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true and Heavenly Father has showed me many times the truthfulness of the gospel. This has strengthened my testimony and helped me with sharing the gospel with others. I know the prophet, Joseph Smith, restored gospel of Jesus Christ back to the Earth and that we have a prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, who leads a guides us today. I know that when want to know something if we sincerely pray and search for an answer, Heavenly Father will give us an answer.

How I live my faith

I strive to set an example for others. I want to show others how much their lives can be blessed if they do the things our Heavenly Father has asked us to do. I have found that through prayer and scripture study Heavenly Father gives me the knowledge and strength I need to stay strong through trials and tribulations.
