Hi I'm Aaron

I was born in England. I can make a dragon from a sheet of paper. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I guess there's a lot I could write about myself, but most of it would be pretty boring! I'm from a family of seven which, as you can imagine, means my house is rather noisy at the best of times. But that's cool, being the eldest bro out of four brothers isn't always doom and gloom. In my spare time (if I'm feeling nerdy... which is most of the time) I'll read big books, watch long films and play fun PC games. Things like going to the gym, cycling and drawing are great, but I don't do that quite as often! Origami is something I've been doing since I was 11, but I don't have much time for that now that I'm currently in Ghana serving a full time mission. However, I think telling people about a church that can change their life and doing charity work for two years is much more worthwhile.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life, so I don't know what it's like to not be a Mormon. However, the reason I've stayed in the church my whole life is because I think, out of all other churches, this one teaches you things which, when applied to your life, allow you to have lasting happiness. That isn't to say I've never had a bad day (as that's far from the truth!), but I do believe when you try you best to live as close to the teachings as possible, you can have an enriched and more fulfilling life.

How I live my faith

I'm tempted to just put two years of charity work... the problem is I've only just started, so I guess it don't count yet. Before I went to Ghana, I tried my best to live my faith by example. For most of my friends, I was the first Mormon they met, so most of them now think all members are friendly but slightly crazy! It's true that a lot of people focus on the things we don't do; not drinking alcohol, for example. However, it's a big shame that there's not enough people who look at all the things we do do (haha). Helping out in an annual charity service project, singing Christmas carols for the elderly, to mention a couple. Myself personally, I've helped to teach a few lessons in church, given talks and (as a last resort!) played the piano in a few meetings.
