Hi I'm Drew

I grew up in Ohio. I work at Sherwin-Williams. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently, I work two jobs and go to school part-time to become an EMT. I'm engaged to a faithful Latter-day Saint woman who is beyond beautiful inside and out. I was raised Catholic but joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was 18. I'm 26 now.

Why I am a Mormon

At 18, I changed my circumstances and habits from bad to better, and I studied the doctrines, history, and people of the church after grilling a friend from high school about why he was Mormon. He told me "because it was headed by Jesus himself, and that he doesn't do that with any other church. Eventually I did as Moroni urges on page 529 of The Book of Mormon. I asked God if the 'Mormon" church was "the read deal." He answered with a tug, twist, pull, and a bop on my heart and in my mind- a resounding "Yes."

How I live my faith

I serve as Branch Mission Leader at my congregation. In my experience, I've learned that service to others allows for distraction from the self; from worry, from stress, and from bad habits too. It invites the Holy Ghost. What's more, if you're active in service to others with a smile- THAT's when the miracles happen!

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Death is not the end. Death is really a beginning—another step forward in Heavenly Father’s plan for His children. Someday, like everyone else, your physical body will die. But your spirit does not die, it goes to the spirit world, where you will continue to learn and progress and may be with loved ones who have passed on. Death is a necessary step in your progression, just as your birth was. Sometime after your death, your spirit and your body will be reunited—never to be separated again. This is called resurrection, and it was made possible by the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians 15:20-22). Show more Show less
