Hi I'm Andrea

I love music and running marathons. I'm studying to be an English teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently attend Brigham Young University and am studying English Teaching. I play the harp and love it so much. It has been such a calming influence in my crazy life that I couldn't be more grateful for its influence and the influence of my loving harp teacher. I love to be outside regardless of the weather and I just think we have such a beautiful world full of amazing colors. Running is my favorite past time and I love having a marathon scheduled to keep me motivated. I'm so grateful for the beautiful life that God has given me. My life isn't perfect but I try my hardest to love living it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. Not just happy for a minute or a day, but lasting joy. Being Mormon really is a lifestyle. It's waking up and thinking everyday, "today I will follow Christ and be more Christlike than yesterday," and then getting up and doing it. The gospel has given me purpose; taught me love. We're not perfect in this church but we are trying our hardest. I have seen Christ's influence change lives. I have felt His spirit in my heart. It has changed me. I know that this is Christ's church. I know that it is true. That is why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

My goal in life is to be as Christ-like as I can be. I want people to see me and know by the way I act that I am a Christian. Christ was charitable and compassionate. Charity is love in action. As I try to serve others I really learn to love them, which I feel is the most Christ-like think I can do. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has given me so many opportunities to serve. I have gotten to work with amazing and inspring people as I've cleaning up after hurricanes, helped with food drives, run blood drives, and am now serving as a missionary for the church. I live my faith by trying to follow Christ's example.

Are Mormons Christians?

Of Course! I am a Mormon and I know that Christ is my Savior. He suffered for my sins and my whole purpose in life is to make it back to him. I want more than anything to be Christlike and to love as he did. I want to come unto Him just as He commanded me to do. To be Christian means that you follow Christ. I try my hardest to do just that. To come unto Christ is our ultimate goal as Mormons so yes! We are Christians! Show more Show less
