Hi I'm Andee

I am the only girl in my family. I am second of three. I am a Vet Tech. I love woodwork and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Andee and there is so much to me! When I was a child there was nothing that could keep me away from animals! If it was a cat, dog, horse, cow or even squirrel I wanted to be around it; four-legged, tripod, or two-legged it didn't matter. That love become a desire to study in the field of Veterinary Sciences. I am a couple classes and a licensing exam away from being a Veterinary Technician (Vet Tech). It is a love and passion. There are always ups and downs, but helping God's creatures is a privilege that I would not trade for anything! I also love to swim, horseback ride, and work with my hands. Freshman year of high school I was on the swim team and what an amazing experience that was. When I am able, I want to have a horse somewhere near the mountains so that I can ride the trails and maybe even an arena to do jumps, maybe. Whether it is clay, dirt, wood, or play dough I will make things. Woodworking is one of my favorites. I have made cabinets and candlesticks and even a toy Hummer, military style of course. Give me a lathe and some cedar and I will be good for hours!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a strong LDS family and was baptized at 8 years old. I, unfortunately, cannot say that was when I was converted. I was tested and felt that I put on a good show in high school, but it was not until college that I truly was able to be converted to the wonderful truth of the gospel that is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In college I gave way to alcohol and smoking, not to a serious degree but enough, and was making choices that made the goals of the temple obsolete. It was not until a dear friend got married, in the temple, and my dad asked me about going on a mission that I truly opened my eyes to what I was doing. After some prayer and needed callings in a small branch I came to a better understanding of the Atonement, Christ's suffering and sacrifice for me and the world, and who my Eternal Father wants me to be. I now am a full time missionary, gladly serving my Heavenly Father and the wonderful people in the Kentucky Louisville Mission.

How I live my faith

I live each day relying on God and all that He has, is and will do for me. I live now sharing and teaching the true restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and I will always strive to be an example of my Savior and Redeemer in word, deed, and thought.

What do Mormons believe about family?

As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we hold family to be of greatest importance because families are ordained of God. Since the time of Adam and Eve family has been the way Chirst's gospel should be taught. It is in the family that we learn basic principles about life: walking, eating, manors, speach, etc. It is here that we also should be taught spiritually: scripture reading, prayer, obedience, and love for God and His Son, Jesus Chirst. Families, we believe, can also be united for eternity. To me that is an immeasurable amount of time. We can not even begin to comprehend how long that is. Every day I ask myself if what I am doing to/with my family would make eternity a peacful one or not. My family is top of any list because I have been taught about their importance.
