Hi I'm Aubrey

I'm from Draper, Utah. I grew up LDS, and I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Maryland Baltimore Mission.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, in an active LDS family. I love music, and grew up playing the violin and piano. I have a great love for helping the people around me, and for sharing the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Because the Book of Mormon is the word of God, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and he did see Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. And because I know these things, I am proud to say I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is a love and a peace in this gospel that you cannot find anywhere else. This gospel gives me a sense of purpose, of something that is so much greater than me. At times when I have felt at my lowest and loneliest, I know that I was not alone. When I am at my happiest, I know where my blessings are coming from. If we truly look, we can see the Lord's hand in our lives day to day. Whether it be a personal miracle, or the smallest tender mercy, he is aware of our situations and what we are feeling. This gospel has given me the knowledge that I am never alone. That no matter how far from the trail I get, or how lost I may feel, there is a clear road back. That I can be forgiven of my sins, all because of the precious atonement. I get to be with my family for all of eternity. All of these things give my life a purpose, far greater than I could have ever imagined, and for that I am eternally grateful.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving and serving those around me the best I can. I love reading my scriptures daily, and offering prayers of gratitude frequently. I following Christ's example he has set for me and having faith that he can make up the difference in what I lack.
