Hi I'm Andrew Thomas Cheney

I grew up in Oklahoma and Arkansas. I will serve a mission in Bakersfield, California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member all of my life. I am attending college and majoring in mechanical engineering. However, I am putting this on hold to serve a mission for my church. I love the outdoors, especially camping with my family. Also, I am an avid reader of many types of books, but in particular I enjoy historical fiction.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love being happy. The Mormon church provides everything that a person needs to be happy. Also, because of my membership in the Mormon church, I know where I came from and where I am going. This brings so much meaning and comfort to my life. I am so thankful to know for myself that this church is true. I will still have trails throughout my life, but even when times get tough, I will always have the church to lean on and strengthen me. I am also thankful for the knowledge and ability that I have gained through the Mormon church to be with my family forever. I love my family and I would be heart broken if i could not spend eternity with them. I love being a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best person I can be. I try to live the commandments and be a good example to the people I come in contact with. Also, I am going to serve a mission for my church, and I will be in the mission field soon.
