Hi I'm Aaron

I am a husband, a father of one, an artist, and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I love to draw and paint. I studied applied computer arts. I do 3D art for video games. I love music. I enjoy to playing my 1975 Rhodes electric piano. l love to read and learn about many subjects including history, theology, science and philosophy. I study and learn to integrate knowledge into my understanding of life via the lens of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because as I have studied, prayed about and applied the teachings of this church to my life, I have found great joy. I could attempt to describe this joy as one that starts at the core of my being and then works its way out in a way that I desire to share with others. This as opposed to the joy that flickers and fades, bubbles then goes flat, leaves me wanting more. As long as I live my life in accordance to the teachings of Christ, this joy is consistent. I believe that there is a father in Heaven who knows my plight and angels cheering me on. I believe we all lived as spirit children to Heavenly parents before we were born on this earth, I know this life is just a small moment compared to eternity. With that perspective I can laugh when its time to laugh, and press forward in the midst of trial.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week. I currently teach the Gospel Principles class in my ward. This class teaches and discusses the fundamental beliefs and practices of our church. It is a good class for new members and investigators to learn the core principals of our faith. I also do home teaching once a month with a companion. This is a calling to all priesthood holders to visit the homes of assigned ward member families, share a gospel message, and be available to assist with any needs they may have, either temporal or spiritual. When I get the time and motivation, I love to do research on my ancestry and seek names and stories of my relatives. When I find new names, I take them to the temple and perform saving ordinances in their behalf. I try to make prayer and scripture study a part of every day.
