Hi I'm Aaron

I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of two young boys and married to an incredible woman. I have a BS in Psychology and I am fond of trivia in all forms. Some of my hobbies include running and playing guitar. Recently I received my commission as an officer in the US Army.

Why I am a Mormon

Since reading the Book of Mormon as a teen I have come to know a peace in my life that I hadn't before. Living the standards taught by the LDS Church strengthens my resolve to be better and gives me a clearer perspective when facing challenges and trials that life seems to constantly offer me. My testimony is that we have a loving Heavenly Father and a loving Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that the Father and the Son appeared to Joseph Smith to restore The Church of Jesus Christ. My testimony is the result of sincere prayer and diligent study of the Book of Mormon and I testify that it is true.

How I live my faith

 In my home, we make reading and praying together a priority. Having been here and there for Army training and schools I attend available meetings whenever possible. I help out as needed, usually by offering a prayer or setting up chairs and classrooms for teaching. Mostly, I strive to live a good life and inspire those around me. Occasionally, fellow soldiers have accompanied me to Church services.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I came to know it is true by reading the Book of Mormon. I pondered what I read for a good while and then prayed to know if it is true. Through the indescribable feelings I had I can say without reservation that what I had read is true. You will feel the Holy Ghost in your heart and mind. You will feel peace, love, and gentleness.
