Hi I'm Andy

I grew up in Southern California and now reside in Arizona. I work for a Fortune 500 company. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I recently moved to Arizona with my job. I am newly baptized to the church. I enjoy playing basketball, eating clean, very holistic lifestyle. I also enjoy traveling and visiting my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a separate denomination. I ultimately detracted from that church when I was a teenager. I spent the better part of my late teens and early twenties not associated with any type of denomination nor did I have any real spirituality in my life. By the time I was in my late twenties I was mentally and physically exhausted. This was attributed to living a lifestyle that conducive to receiving satisfaction solely from desires of the world. I began my own journey of recovery and sought out a way from this path that I was lost on. Slowly and on God's timing over the course of about two and a half years I began to incorporate some basic spiritual principles back in my life. While trudging along this road I took began to notice some of my family members who were part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I realized these people who I had avoided in my early life had something in there lives that I could see was different from others. Thus began my investigation into the Church which has now completely changed my life in ways I could not have imagined. Through meeting with members of the Church and reading the Book of Mormon I gained my own testimony that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. There is a spirit within in this Church that speaks to me and it is undeniable that it is my Heavenly Father who is hastening his work within and through me. I have not enjoyed this type of peace or serenity in my entire life and it comes from knowing my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me. I testify that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I testify that Joseph Smith was a prophet and the Book of Mormon that he translated is another Testament of Jesus Christ. When I read the scriptures and seek my Heavenly Father in prayer he speaks to me and bears witness for me. I love this Church, I love our Prophets, I love my Savior and I testify these things in the name of my blessed savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I recently received the calling to be the class coordinator to ensure teachers are in place each Sunday for class teaching within the mens group. I also am part of a non-profit organization that reaches out to help teens and adults with alcohol and substance abuse.
