Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

I'm married but don't have any children. We have 35 nieces and nephews though! I'm a professional editor by trade, a musicologist by education, and a gamer by inclination. There are few things I enjoy more than face-to-face gaming sessions with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it's true! I was born into the Church and baptized at age 8, but my conversion was a gradual process. Born into the Church or not, we are all "converts." When the time came for me to serve a mission, I had to make some hard choices. I had to sacrifice certain activities that I had pursued for a long time and that I was excelling at. I was a dancer and a musician. I had to hold down multiple simultaneous jobs for a year to pay for it. This was not a decision I made simply because I was born a member of the Church. Studying the Book of Mormon changed my life. The Holy Ghost witnessed to me that Joseph Smith was indeed a prophet, that he indeed restored Christ's true church. Throughout my childhood, which was tumultuous and at times painful, the Lord watched over me and took care of me. The decision to serve a mission and continue as a member of the Church was relatively easy at that point. The Lord had done so much for me, it was a privilege to give back. I am infinitely grateful for my membership in the Church.

How I live my faith

Because my wife became physically disabled due to a car accident, I don't hold any callings in the Church other than as a hometeacher. My calling has been to care for and serve my wife. I attend the temple monthly. I attempt to always be an example to those around me and am always happy to talk about religion or the Church itself to anyone likewise interested. Serving those around us whenever possible is how we most commonly live our faith.
