Hi I'm Austin Lawrence Dredge

I was raised in Utah. I play the saxophone. I'm going to Canada for my mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play the jazz and marching music on the baritone and alto saxophone. I grew up in this church. I love the outdoors. I like all music but rap. Friends are very very important to me. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a house with parents who taught me this gospel and to love this gospel. Since then, i have gained my own independent testimony separate from my parents. I love this gospel. It truly brings my joy. One one the main things about this gospel that brings me so much joy is the truth that i can be with my family for all eternity, even after this life, and that someday, i may find a wife to marry and also live with for all eternity. This gospel makes all of that possible and it makes me so happy. I also love my savior Jesus Christ so much and want to serve him all that i can. That is why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love attending church. I feel so welcome and happy when i am there. I am called to be the Secretary in the age group of young men i belong to. I am an eagle scout in the Boy Scouts of America. Being involved in scout, as well as my church activities has given me an appreciation of serving others. I love to serve other people. I am also called as a missionary to serve in the Canada, Calgary mission to serve for two years, starting June, 10th 2015.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Austin Lawrence Dredge
The Book of Mormon, the Bible and other scriptures are the words of god given through his prophets and written down for us as a tool to help us get though our lives on this earth. I personally have read the bible, Book of Mormon, and i have learned so many lessons from them both to help me make good decisions in my life. Personally, the thing i am most thankful for from these scriptures are the feelings i get when i read them. I feel like my heavenly father is looking down on me and is proud of me when i study his words through his scriptures. God has personally revealed through revelation that the Book of Mormon and the Bible are true and the moment that was revealed to me was one of the happiest moments of my life thus-far.
