Hi I'm Andrew Albrecht

I like heavy music, concerts, taking pictures, I really like cats, I'm a Mormon. Currently serving in Federal Way, Washington.

About Me

I grew up outside of Cleveland, Ohio. I got really involved in the music scene there and fell in love with hardcore/ pop punk music. I love going to concerts and being involved. I love traveling and the beauty and wonderful things there are to see on this Earth. Photography is a passion of mine and something I hope to be able to pursue in the future. I am currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Federal Way, Washington and it's the best thing I've ever done. I've never felt such a close connection to our Heavenly Father and it's so cool to be able to be an instrument in his hands. His love is something that I want to be able to share with everyone that comes in my path.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My parents are both converts to the church and I was raised by the standards that the church has set for us. In my youth however I had a falling away and questioned my faith. I remember one night however after a lot of questioning that I felt the spirit overcome me stronger than it ever has and I knew what was right and what I had to do. Since then the spirit has testified to me every day of the truthfulness of the gospel and this church. I have a strong testimony of the atonement, of Jesus Christ, of the Book of Mormon, and of the authority of our leaders, and I have been able to come to know these things through so many wonderful experiences that I am so grateful for and I cherish very much.

How I live my faith

Daily prayer and scripture study are big in my life. I've had the opportunity to serve in many capacities in the church, and am currently serving as a teacher for my Elders quorum. Mostly the thing I live by every day is the last part of the 13th Article of Faith being "If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." I always look for the beauty in the world through art, music, people, whatever it is that deserves praise and that really helps me to feel the spirit in my life.
