Hi I'm Abe Weisler

I grew up near Chicago. I love learning and exploring. I have 5 little brothers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a busy life! I was very involved in my high school, and enjoy learning. I have worked a number of different jobs through my teenage years, and those have all helped me understand my work ethic and the value of money. I have competitively played baseball, soccer, basketball, track, flag football, ultimate frisbee, and volleyball, and have tried everything else at least once. I greatly enjoy the outdoors. I love camping, and have camped in many places in the Midwest, but also in Wales in the United Kingdom. I enjoy taking pictures and trying new things! I have 5 little brothers who are all fun and love life! My relationships with others mean a great deal to me. I am currently serving a mission for this church in New York and I love being able to testify of truth in order to help others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to have been born to good parents. I was raised as a member of this church, and throughout my whole life as I learned the teachings, everything made sense! Ours is a church of love and self reliance, community and progression, always trying to be a better person than yesterday. Tender spiritual experiences that I have had reading the scriptures or being taught by the Holy Ghost have solidified the factual knowledge that I have about my church. I know that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ loved us, and I have felt that love. I know that if we follow the commandments and do what is right, that we will be blessed, and have joy! I know our modern day prophet is a man of god, and he reveals messages that our Father in Heaven desires us to hear. I'm grateful for the opportunity to become better and also to become clean, week after week! I love my church!

How I live my faith

As I am only a young man, all my church responsibilities have been in our youth groups. I have had various positions in the young men groups, which have all been very satisfying and fun! I enjoy home teaching, which is visiting other families in the congregation. Every week there is a family night at my house, and we have a devotional, games, and fun interaction with one another! I look forward to church worship each sunday!
