Hi I'm Drew

I love basketball and football. I am a full-time mission in Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Bountiful Utah, I have lived in Utah my whole life. I am currently serving a mission in the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh Mission. I am serving in the Freeport Ward. This is my first time ever back east, and I have loved every second of it. I graduated from high school in 2012. I worked for a local grocery store, as a cashier for 2 years. I tore my ACL July 2012. I love playing sports, i.e. basketball, football, and many others when I am not injuring myself in the process. I have played both the violin, for 5 years, and the string bass, for 5 years. I love learning about science, its my favorite subject. I am the oldest of 5 children in my family. I love being outside in nature, camping, fishing and many other things. I love spending time with my friends, and family. I plan on attending college and getting married when I get back.

Why I am a Mormon

Well the easy answer is because I grew up in the church, but since I have had the opportunity to serve as a full-time missionary for the church, it has changed my view of the church, and has helped me grow. The reason I am a Mormon is because as I have followed the teachings and principles in this church has brought me the most happiness I have ever received, though it hasn't been easy all the day. This is not just a Sunday church, it is a life commitment. There are many other reasons why I am a Mormon, but the biggest reason is because I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I know that the Christ's church was restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and I know that he was a prophet. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because I prayed and asked God then he bore witness to me that it is true through his Holy Spirit. That is why I am a Mormon, because I know that this is where my Heavenly Father wants me to be, and I will strive for the rest of my life to be worthy of the promises I have made with Him. I know that Jesus is the Christ and truly the Son of God, that is the ultimate reason why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Well I haven't always been the best at living what I believe. I try my hardest to do so though. I, at times slip up and make mistakes, but I know that I can always repent of those things. The way I live my faith, is by trying my best to follow the example of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I try to be as he would, though I slip up a lot. I have made an effort to see people as my brothers and sisters, for they truly are. As I have done so, it has helped me have a greater love for them, and has lead me to try to help them as much as I can. I do my best to be better today then I was yesterday, and to be better tomorrow then I was today. It is hard at times, but it is worth it! It is all about having the eternal prospective in mind, and that has lead me to live my faith in this way.
