Hi I'm Andrew

I'm from Virginia, I like to play soccer, and I'm a mormon

About Me

I am currently a student at Brigham Young University, I like to play soccer, and I'm on a mission in Riverside California.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I've been a mormon since I was 8, and I guess people have always asked me why I would give up two years to be away from home, and I've always looked for a profound answer for why, but when it comes down to it, I'm no good at being profound, I've always known the church was true, and ever since my leaders told me that I was expected to go on a mission, I've known there was a reason, and that's why I'm out here. I know that the church has blessed me in many ways, and that anyone who lives its teachings will feel the spirit, and strive to be the best person they can be.

How I live my faith

I visit members that live near me, and share spiritual messages with them monthly (this is called home teaching). I am also currently serving a two year mission in Riverside California, where we help people come closer to Jesus by learning about how to have faith, repent, and be baptized.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Andrew
Well, the best way to start would be to not support anything that would help pornography. In today's world it's fairly difficult to stop anything that's making money, so the simplest answer is to do whatever you need to in order to avoid pornography. I can't say that one individual can solve such a problem by avoiding it, but society certainly could, and we can all be the example we want to see. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Andrew
Mormon women are pretty cool. They do most of the same things that other women might do. Most of them are very friendly and social. However, the best way to really know more about these mormon women is to talk to one yourself. Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Andrew
right at the top of the home page of mormon.org, you can click on request a visit, and you will have the opportunity to hear about it from missionaries in your local area. Also, if you have any friends that are mormon, you could ask them any questions that you may have, and they would be happy to help you. Show more Show less
