Hi I'm Aspen Hawks

I love to serve others. I believe life is an adventure. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I love to learn and go to school. I love to read, especially about history or other cultures. I like to run or do anything outdoors. My favorite music is Indie and alternative. Old musicals are my favorite movies. Five years ago I discovered I have Celiac Disease,and ever since I have been fascinated with the relationship between nutrition and health. I love my family and laughing with them. Every day is an adventure if you have an open mind.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have studied the scriptures, gone to church and prayed to know if the church is true. By continually seeking to follow Jesus Christ's example, I know that this is His gospel. As I strive to keep his commandments and serve others I find exceeding joy and peace.

How I live my faith

Family history is very important to me. I have been finding names of deceased ancestors and taking their names to the LDS temples to complete sacred ordinances for them. I get to know my neighbors by helping and serving them. I am preparing to serve a mission to Budapest, Hungary to share my religious beliefs.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Aspen Hawks
We believe that we come to earth to learn how to be like God. We receive a physical body and are given agency to make choices for ourselves. There are many experiences good or bad that help us gain understanding. We have families that are there to help and support us and teach us to love others. If we follow God's plan for us by doing our best to do right, we can be happy in this life and the life to come. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Aspen Hawks
We can increase our faith by studying the teachings of Jesus Christ. When we follow his example and follow God's commandments and have a desire to believe He will bless us with more faith and peace. Show more Show less
