Hi I'm Andrew

Born and raised in Colorado, I love sports, outdoor activity, singing, and playing the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently a student at BYU-Idaho, I am a very interesting individual. I may not have too many hobbies, but those I have I immensely enjoy. Among these, are sports watching, mountain biking, skiing, playing about any sports, singing, and playing musical instruments. I also follow the weather, and study parts of it. In time, I would like to become a climate scientist. I like to live my life on a schedule, always preparing and being on time. I also am a solitary individual: I would rather do things alone more times than not. But that will change, as I am two weeks out of embarking on a two year mission for my faith to Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I have grown up in a family that has encouraged a Mormon church attendance, I have decided for myself you covenant with the God of this faith to become a servant and disciple for all time, for myself. I am a Mormon for mainly two reason. First, the entire gospel taught makes sense, from a theoretical point of view, and the application of these things has only improved my life. Second, I have felt a witness that it is true. Not just parts of this faith, but the entire gospel, as it is complete, and is designed to bring a person in the footsteps of God.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a seven days a week job, not just on Sunday. On Sundays, I go to church for 3 hours, being the Priesthood pianist, and the secretary of my quorum, as well as a teacher. Outside of Sunday, I am studying the scriptures every day, as well as applying them and their philosophies to the facets of my life, to make my life a more happy existence. I find happiness in abiding to the commandments of my faith.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

The Prophets and the teachings in Bible were true events, and were truth, and continue to be truth as long as they have not been altered in any way. As man changed it, the simple truths become altered, and therefore aren't truths anymore. But as far as it is correct, it is the Word of God. Show more Show less
