Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a very amateur golf player, i'm a friendly person, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born, and have spent nearly my whole life in Utah. I have not always enjoyed living in Utah, but now that I’m not currently living there (I’m currently living in Texas) I’ve learned to appreciate the environment that I was raised in. I had amazing friends that helped me make good choices, and family that always encouraged me to make the best decisions I could. Some of my favorite things to do are golfing, watching movies with my friends, playing board games, and studying the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to learn about the Savior and how what He said 2,000 years ago, still applies to me today. Some of the jobs I have worked include, but are not limited to: computer installer (at a prison), concession seller (two different times), parking sign installer, and smoothie maker. I'm somewhat of a handy man; I enjoy figuring out how things work, and how to fix them by myself. I'm considering a large amount of careers for the future, such as a high school teacher, a police officer, a chiropractor, and a movie stunt car driver. (Granted, the stunt car driver isn't really a practical one, but still, it would be fun!). All I really hope for though is that I'll find a career where I'm happy and I can provide for my family. To think of the future, for me, is pretty scary, there's a lot of unknown wonders out there, and I feel like it's my job to just keep living everyday, and as those unknown experiences come my way, seize hold of them, and gain something from each one.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe that He died for me on the cross and that he performed the Atonement, which is, he took all of the world's pains, sorrows, and sins upon himself so that we can live with Him and our Heavenly Father once again, if we but repent and come unto Him. Because of the Atonement, Christ has suffered through every last pain that i will ever feel. He has felt my sorrow if and when I fall from the path, for we are all imperfect; but through him we can find our way back to the strait and narrow path, and subsequently, back to His glory and His never ending love. I am a Mormon because God talks to us in these days, through his living prophets, the current one being Thomas S. Monson. God can speak to all of us individually through things like prayer and scripture study, but when the prophet speaks, it is God whom he is representing. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the one and only true prophet on this Earth, and that he is comparable to Abraham, Moses, Noah, or any other of God's prophets in the manner in which he communes with The Father for the benefit for the whole Earth. I am a Mormon because i know that this church is the only church with the complete Gospel. It is the same gospel that Christ himself organized when he walked upon the Earth. This gospel, and it's priesthood, died with the apostles, but was restored through Joseph Smith Jr. when he was fourteen years old and wondered which church was true. He was then visited by God the Father and His son Jesus Christ; where they told him that no church on the Earth was true, and that he, Joseph Smith, was to restore the true and everlasting gospel to the Earth once again. I am a Mormon because Christ has always been, currently is, and will always be the head of this church. It is in his name that we spread this gospel to all that will hear it, so that they can partake of his loving Atonement, come unto him, and gain eternal life. And that's why I AM A MORMON

How I live my faith

I was able to be a part of my ward's youth program from the age of twelve, all the way up till I turned nineteen. In that youth program I had several leadership positions and opportunities throughout the years. Some of the funnest activities i've ever been a part of were ones where i was able to help plan and was a part of the process to put activity into motion. whether that activity was boating at a near by lake, having a summer barbecue, or going rock climbing, being a part of that youth group has given me opportunities to serve others and to learn from adults who have their lives put together, as to be an example of what i can have. the amount of service hours that i've put in the last seven years of my life is near uncountable. in fact, i can't even think about putting a number on it. whether it was raking leaves, fixing a gutter on the roof, or shoveling snow, the youth i worked with along side were always willing to help. and that in itself, is what i feel, is what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is all about. we are about doing unto others, as Jesus Christ would do unto them. Because that is our ultimate goal, to follow his example, and to follow his commandments.
