Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a Yorkshireman, I love my wife, I'm happy, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I work for a local paper and stationery company. I enjoy my job as it allows me to talk to lots of different people and to get to know them a little. I love to read fantasy and science fiction books. I also love to go to the cinema and watch new movies on the big screen. The thing I enjoy the most is to just be able to sit at home and spend time with my wonderful wife Lyn.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was really young I used to go to the local Church of England's Sunday school lessons. I always knew that God existed but never really thought much more about it than that. When I was a teenager I started to go to youth activities with my best friend Arthur. When I was 14 I took a gospel study course called seminary which taught me more about God and Jesus Christ. That year Arthur's brother John was going to be baptised and was being taught by two missionaries of the church. I sat in with John and just felt that what they were teaching was true. It expanded the things that I already believed and I decided to be baptised as a member of the Church if Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that God my Father in Heaven, his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are real, that Jesus atoned for my sins and died for me. I know that they know me as an individual and that they want the best for me. When I was 16 I went to the Temple where I met a beautiful young girl who 13 months later became my wife and we were sealed together in that same Temple for all eternity. My mother recently passed away which was really difficult time for me but I have felt the love of my saviour Jesus Christ and have have been given confirmation that I will see my Mother again and that my wife and I will be able to be with all of our loved ones who have gone before us.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as the Bishop of our local congregation.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes a husband and wife can be together for ever. I married my wonderful wife when I was 18 and went to the Temple to be sealed to her for time and all eternity. I love my wife with all of my heart and I don't want our relationship to end at death. I couldn't imagine being without her. I know that we can be together forever I have felt the confirmation of the Holy Ghost testify to me that we can spend the eternities as a family. I pray that as we follow the teachings of our saviour Jesus Christ and become closer as a couple that we can be worthy of this most wonderful of promises. Show more Show less
