Hi I'm Andy George

I am from the Pacific Northwest. I love my family, I served a mission in Brazil and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am from the pacific northwest, currently I am from Oregon. I love the state of Oregon because most of my family and extended family lives there. I grew up playing basketball with my brother and my dad. I have both my parents, a brother named Sean and now recently I have a new sister in law, Tracee. I love being with them because they make me happy and they give me a lot of strength. I served a LDS mission in Brasilia, Brazil. I lived there for 2 years and there I was able to learn more about my Savior, Jesus Christ. I have a strong love for the Brazilian people and miss them so much. I have a strong passion for sports and I really enjoy watching the sports from my home states (Mariners, Seahawks and the Oregon Ducks.) I am currently studying at Brigham Young University of Idaho. I decided that I want to get involved in communications. I hope that I could use that to work for a sports related occupation. The mormon church or LDS church is very important to me because I know it to be true and I know that it was established by our Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with the opportunity to be born into the church. I always believed the church to be true but I never really had my own answer that the church was true because I grew up in it and believed. I never really thought that it was necessary to ask if the church was true in prayer because I felt it wasn't needed. One day I decided that I was really needing to do so. So, I prayed and prayed for the longest time. I wanted to know that the Book of Mormon was true. I remember perfectly the day I received my own personal testimony of the church. It was one of the most happiest moments of my life because I didn't just believe it any more but I knew it to be true. I am a Mormon because of the happiness I feel from my Savior. I am a Mormon because I have seen the Lord's hand in my life so many times and I know it comes from the teachings of His church. I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying to my Heavenly Father every day and living a life that I know He wants me to live. I pray for opportunities to serve His children. In high school, I lived a life of service by participating in the Boy Scouts or America program. I was blessed with the opportunity to provide service and aid to people in my community.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Andy George
Our Heavenly Father is literally our Father. He cares and loves us so much. He waits to hear from us each day. We can get to know Him through prayer Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Andy George
The Mormon lifestyle is a lifestyle that reflects the life of our Savior Jesus Christ. He was always serving others and providing aid for the children of our Heavenly Father. The Mormon lifestyle is also a family lifestyle. Families are very important because we believe that we can live with our families forever and that death doesn't separate us. It brings me such comfort to know this because I know that whatever happens to my family in this life, if I live worthily I know I can be with them again. That is such a blessing! Show more Show less
