Hi I'm Ammon Aston

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I love playing Ultimate Frisbee. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being active! So I have always loved playing sports or just being outside. I am currently going to college and I love it there I am grateful for the opportunity I have to learn and progress. I just got called to serve a mission in the Iowa Des Moines Mission and I am so excited to go and serve there for the next two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Gospel so for me it started out because my parents told me to. But as I have gotten older I have realized that the reason I am a Mormon is because I know this church is true. I can't always say that I have know that but I can now. I know that the Book of Mormon is true not just because I was told so but because I have read it and prayed about it and I know that it was translated by the power of God and that it is the keystone of our religion. I have chosen to serve a mission for the next two years. I didn't do that because I wanted to know if my church is true. I am going because I know of it's truth and I want all of those people that I will meet to know the joy that this Gospel brings into people's lives. I want to be able to share that joy with everyone around me so that they can feel of that joy as well.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed serving as a member of the activities committee in my ward. What we do is we set up a ton of fun activities that we can do as a ward to get to know each other better as well as just have a great time. I love going to church and learning about Christ because I believe that knowledge is power so the more I can learn the better I will feel about it.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Ammon Aston
Jesus Christ is truly the Son of God. He is our savior and without him there would be no hope. He died on the cross for us and because of that we also can live again. I know that the Savior lives he was ressurected the third day and because of that we will also one day be resurrected. I love Jesus Christ because he is the one that makes everything possible. He is the one we can always count on and can turn to when we go through hard times. He loves us and wants us to be happy and when we turn our lives to him he will carry our burdens. Through him we can be forgiven of sin and become clean again. I know that he lives and he loves us! Show more Show less
