Hi I'm Andrew H.

I'm from the great state of Texas and love to sing, act, and create what I have the confidence to do so and, yes, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently 19 years old and am about to serve a mission for the church for which I'm very excited. I have been blessed with several accomplishments in my life through my Father in Heaven while singing, acting, participating in The Boy Scouts of America program, and gaining a driver's license. I am from a family of six children of whom I love dearly while being raised by, no doubt, goodly parents. Despite the activity in my faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I still have had my own trials and worries just like everyone else. We all have adversity we have to face and being a member of this wonderful Gospel does not excuse us, but knowing that the Lord will bless us in our trials adds to our faith and trust in Him. There is nothing we can't accomplish if we have Heavenly Father with us. Just know that we have a Heavenly Father out there who loves us more than we can comprehend and we can go to Him for anything. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I can't wait to get started on my mission and share the Gospel to Heavenly Father's precious children.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) because I cannot begin to describe how much I and my family have been blessed through the knowledge and love that comes from this inspired church. Through the Church I've learned that I am a child of God and that He loves me; we've been supported as a family during difficult or trying times; and we've seen how the Hand of the Lord has touched every aspect of our lives. This is a church of families and love. It is a church of comfort and peace. This is a church of progression and forgiveness. This is a church of hope. This is not a church of a man or even of the Prophet Joseph Smith, but it is Christ's church again upon the Earth and He invites all to receive the blessings in store for those who faithfully follow Him. I know it's a bold claim, but I'm a member because, as Heavenly Father's child (as we all are), I am entitled to ask for truth, for He has promised that if we ask sincerely we can receive truth. I have felt of His love as I've pondered on the things I have been taught over my life and through the Spirit, I am developing a testimony of the undeniable fact that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints IS TRUE and that it has been correctly established on Prophets and Apostles who are led by the Lord Himself. We can know for ourselves so we can build our own testimonies that this Church is true. All we are asked to do is ask and pray in faith in the Name of Jesus Christ, and we can know and feel of God's love for us all. The fullness of the Gospel is back on the Earth!

How I live my faith

Well, I live my faith probably in the same way most of us do, Mormon or not. I attend my weekly church meetings on Sunday while having Sunday School with it; I try my best to visit families who have been assigned to me once a month to check up on, serve, and teach them as I am directed; I read from the holy scriptures including the wonderful Holy Bible and The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ to better my understanding of what my Heavenly Father wants of me in order to feel his love and to know that we can go to Him for anything--I LOVE The Book of Mormon! Please read it to know of it's truthfulness. It has blessed my life with comfort and understanding, and I'm grateful to have it in my life.--Heavenly Father is so willing to bless us as we follow His commandments. Ultimately, I try to live my faith through a sense of action. If we develop a love for our Heavenly Father, we will have the desire to do as He commands. He loves us more than we know and we can feel more of His love as we develop our faith or belief in Him.
