Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a high school student working towards the medical field. I'm an Eagle scout, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recently graduated high school student. I was in the festival band as well as the Boy Scouts of America. On my free time, I love to read (just about anything) and write short stories. I enjoy art, though I'm not all that great at it. My friends and I love to get together and play board games and go on hikes. I am going to serve a two-year mission in Costa Rica. After which, I plan on attending college in Utah and majoring in Biology, so I can work towards the medical field.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because I have seen the hand of God in my life. Each and every day, I receive blessings from the Lord. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I prayed to know if it is true. I received revelation from the Spirit of the Lord that it is true. I cannot deny that. I know we have a living prophet on the earth today, and he receives guidance from the Lord and then shares it with us. When I listen to the prophet, my life is more in tune with God, and I can feel that in my life. The Atonement of Christ is not only true, but a wonderful gift as well. The ability to rectify past mistakes is a blessing that cannot be overlooked. I have so happy to have an older brother, Jesus Christ, who was willing to pay the price for my wrongdoings. There is so much joy to be had from repenting, and I have felt the power of it. I know that my Savior lives and loves me, and I can't deny that, so I have chosen to follow the path he has set for me in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith mainly by example to others. I try my best every day to be charitable and look for the good in others. I work with some of the youth at church, helping further them along in the scouting program. I participate weekly in church by preparing and blessing the sacrament. I also help keep church grounds clean and ready to use. However, I think one of the most important aspects of living my faith is setting standards. I create expectations and set standards that will help me make decisions when conflicts arise. By making these decisions ahead of time, I am able to stay strong in what I believe when difficult situations arise.
