Hi I'm Andrew Nelson

I was raised in the Sonoran desert. I love the cactus, the monsoon, and the soaring mountains. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young adult. I love nature. I love to sing. I love to explore. I love to learn. I love to engineer. I love to act. I love to problem solve. I love to be curious. I love to laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. I have read it, and I feel God’s love and the Spirit testify to me that it is true when I do. I have seen that as I follow the teachings of the gospel I have been more happy and I have become a better person. I know for certain that God has a plan for us, and that’s the reason we are here on this earth. I know that God loves all of us, so he sent his son to die for us, that we may live again with him. I’m not a Mormon because they are nice people, even though they are. I’m not a Mormon because I was raised that way, even though I was. I am a Mormon, because I know without a doubt that this is His church, restored to the earth, today, for us.

How I live my faith

I do my best to follow Jesus Christ’s example everyday. Jesus Christ spent his life serving others, I try to serve by volunteering at the local food cannery, and by helping others in my congregation and in my community. Jesus Christ also taught people and brought others to the gospel fold, I am following that example by serving a mission. I will be serving in Chile for two years. Jesus Christ also hallowed the Sabbath day, I too try to make the sabbath day a holy day by attending church and by ministering to those in my congregation, sharing the testimonies I have with them. Although I am not perfect , I know I can change and become more through His Atoning sacrifice, for me, and for all mankind.
