Hi I'm Aaron

I grew up in the Tri-cities area of Kennewick, Washington. My family is everything. I love being a Mormon!

About Me

My favorite sport is racquetball! I've played it several years with my family. I play a few instruments but my favorite is the ukulele. I love to run long distance and listen to music. Above all that though is my family and the Gospel. I try to make everything I do revolve around that.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church first and foremost because I have received multiple witnesses that it is true. But along with that, the Gospel has always just made sense to me. Our message is one of love. God loves us and wants us to return to him. He sent us here because He wants us to become like Him. He provided a way for Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world, a role, which He fulfilled by preforming the Atonement-the ultimate act of love which enables us to repent of our sins. And because of that, we love God and our brother Jesus Christ and should strive to do everything we can to follow their path. When we succeed, we will become like God and repeat this cycle. That is where true joy is found.

How I live my faith

I have several families from my congregation that I share a message with every month. I also teach a small class of adults every Sunday about basic Gospel principles. I will soon be serving a two-year, full time mission for my church as well.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Aaron
The Atonement to me is the ultimate act of love. Moroni 7:46 says, "Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all..." Charity is the pure love of Christ. Without that love we can't change or repent. Without charity we are insignificant, but with it we have the potential to be as God. Show more Show less
