Hi I'm Andrea

I want to be with my family forever. I love to serve. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing, play the piano, hike, and be active. I am going to a University, while I prepare to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church and was taught the gospel from a very early age. I learned how to read through our family scripture study. My dad would sit me down on his lap and help me read the scriptures. Throughout my youth my parents strove to teach their family all the gospel principles, and to be an example of keeping the commandments. I knew the church was true right from the beginning, yet I lacked the experience of truly learning for myself until one October general conference when the prophet, President Hinkley, challenged everyone to read or reread the entire book of Mormon by the end of the year. I took that personally, wanting to be obedient and follow the prophet, knowing that he (the prophet) says the word of God. I had never read the entire book of Mormon for myself before. Everyday after school I would read the scriptures until my mom called me up for dinner. Before I knew it it became so hard to leave my reading to eat. By the end of the year I was still a couple chapters short, yet I felt the blessings and gained my first hard worked for testimony (something that I knew for myself). I was twelve then. Never in my life have I read a book with such vigor. [To tell the truth I hated to read, but for some reason I had such great love for that book.] My whole life I have striven to live the gospel, and follow its teachings. I recognize now that my conversion wasn't a single miraculous event, but rather a series of sometimes small and sometimes great testimony builders. Looking back, It was by striving to constantly live gospel principles that has made me who I am today.

How I live my faith

I serve others! I am serving a full time Spanish-speaking mission I strive to do be better everyday. I like to read or hear the words of the apostles and prophets both of today and anciently. I love to pray.
