Hi I'm Elder Andrew Garvin

I was born and raised in the great state of Utah. I love everything about computers. I am a software developer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a software developer, aspiring graphic artist, and computer programmer (Among a lot of other things). I have always been interested in figuring out how everything works. I am the kind of person that will spend hours online learning about some completely abstract topic I heard about somehow. I have always loved learning on my own, but it was always hard for me to learn the 'conventional' way.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I love my Heavenly Father, and his son Jesus Christ. I would be completely lost if I didn't have somewhere I could turn to in my many times of need. There aren't many places on this earth that one can go to feel true peace and comfort, and I am very lucky to have the best one of them all. I am so grateful for the Atonement, and I know that without it, I would have absolutely no chance at Eternal Happiness, or even happiness on earth.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith primarily by example. I feel that if I am living how we have been asked to, and how I know and feel that I should, I can better help those around me receive the blessings God has promised us if we obey him. I love to serve, and if I have the opportunity to bring a friend or two to help the neighbor down the road mow their lawn, or carry in the groceries, or whatever they need help with, I try to do it!
