Hi I'm Andy

I grew up in California. I attended Brigham Young University. I believe in peace and loving one another.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in far Northern California where I was one of only a few LDS members. In high school, I performed with a local audition choir, was a member of my school's tennis team, was very involved in scouting, and leadership opportunities. I love the outdoors, as well as the arts. I served a two year mission for the LDS Church in Montana and Wyoming, and currently live in Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I had to discover it for myself after questioning it numerous times. I was one of the stubborn people who couldn't accept help from anyone else. As such, I became inactive for a short time and denied the thought that there could be a Christ. As I was at my lowest point, I came to know, through much strife and tribulation, that the Lord lives. Even when I was all alone suffering in my pains, Christ was there to pick me up and carry me through. I know He lives and I know that being an active member of this Church is what He wants me to do. He has given me all, and it's only fit that I do all I possibly can to return the favour. He is my Saviour and my all. I love Him and I promise to do all that He desires of me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the love of God with others. I think it's so important for people to feel love and acceptance regardless of what they do or believe; it's what Christ would do. Through my example and my caring for other people, I'm able to see how my Saviour must see other people.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was the first prophet in this dispensation. Under the direction of God, he brought forth the same church Jesus Christ established when He was on the earth. He translated the Book of Mormon through the inspiration of God. Show more Show less
