Hi I'm Andrew

I play basketball, and went to school to be a nurse. Now I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Montana called Plains. It's neatly tucked away in the trees, right next to the Clark Fork river. Beautiful. I had a great childhood there. Plenty of bugs to catch, trees to climb, and mountains to explore. I've always been huge into the outdoors. I also love sports; mostly basketball. After high school, I went to college at BYU-Idaho. I had the time of my life there. I'm going into Nursing. Yeah, that's right. Nursing. It's a man's job too. I love helping people. I love talking to people, and hearing their stories. During college, I was debating serving a mission for my church. I really wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do. I knew I should go, but I didn't really know if I wanted to. After a lot of prayer, I decided to go. I can't even begin to describe how happy I am because of that decision. Being a missionary has shaped me into a much better person.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I want to be. Simply put, I love this church. This is Jesus' church, and I want to belong to it. If you lived in 30 AD, and you experienced Jesus' miracles, wouldn't you want to join His church? That's the same with me. We live in a time when His church is on the earth. I have witnessed His miracles in this church, and I want to be part of it.

How I live my faith

I can't say that there has been any time in my life where I've said, "Boom. That's why I believe." It's just been a constant realization that He does live, that my Father in Heaven is watching me. He is real. His son, Jesus Christ was here on Earth, and He died so I can make it back to my Father. There have been so many small moments in my life that help direct me to where I need to be. I don't simply live my faith on Sunday's. It's a lifestyle. I live my faith by trying to help others. My faith isn't represented at church. It's represented in my choices, in my behavior. I am a Mormon when I'm hiking in the woods. I am a Mormon when I'm talking with my friends. I am always a Mormon.
