Hi I'm Austin Sandau

I grew up in Ogden Utah, I am the second oldest of 8 kids. I play tennis, and I competitively swam in high school.

About Me

Some interesting things about my life are my family situation. I grew up the middle child of three but when I was around 15 years old my parents decided to adopt. My parents went into foster care hoping to adopt two kids but they ended up adopting five. I played tennis and I was on the High School Swim Team, but i love to play almost any sport. Other unique thing about me is that I have red hair.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the feeling of love and support that I feel from my ward members. I grew up in the church my parents always taught me to that god was real but also that i needed to find out for myself if the church was true and I did and I love the church and i know it is God's church. I also know that this church is true because i have read the Book Of Mormon and prayed to know if it is true. I know that our prophet is a true and living prophet, and that if we listen to him that we will always receive guidance to know what God wants us to do.

How I live my faith

A big part of living the faith for me is service. I have always tried to do my best to serve my community to the best of my ability. I have had many callings in my ward i was the 12-13 year old president, the 14-15 year old president and i served in the 16-18 year old presidency. I also have chosen to live my faith by serving a mission in the Anchorage Alaska mission.
