Hi I'm Aubrey

I have a passion for happiness, a desire to learn, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in America, raised three years in Germany, part Basque, part Canadian and I love to travel! My most favorite thing in the world Yougurtland, and the 2nd best thing in the world is eating yougurtland with my family. They are my best friends and biggest fans. We might not have it all together, but "together we have it all." something cheesy like that...and If i'm not spending time with them, I'll probably be at work or in my room jammin-out on the guitar.... and if i'm not doing any of THAT, i'll be at school, playin' with friends or planning my life's next adventure. I'm currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I can honestly say it's been the most challenging, elightening, insightful and greatest andveture of my life yet.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided a few years back that as long as I was happy that was all that mattered. It was then that i realized the things that actually braught me happiness, were the things Christ taught. I found that lasting happiness comes from making good choices, and good choices are what Christ teaches...not what the world or my friends teach. Christ came for us. He is our perfect example, and He teaches us how we too can have a happy life; through the thick and the thine. He says, "Drink of my water and ye shall never thirst again." I'm a momron because I know this is His Church again braught on the earth. And because it is, all the answers to "how to live a happy life" are back in completness...and because that's all true, I have lasting Joy.

How I live my faith

I live what I believe through my daily choices. I believe our faith shines through our lives. Life is made up of choices, and choosing a life in Christ is a life choice. I show my faith in Christ by trying every day to choose the things he would; to be forgiving rather than offended, honest rather than decietful and being filled with itergrity rather than embarrassment. And although it can be hard, the reward is worthwhile. The feeling I get when I do what is right out-wieghs everything. There arn't words enough to describe it. It's those same feelings that let me know Christ lives, what he teaches is true, this is his Chruch and his is the way for everlasting happiness. I want to make his character of integrity, virtue, honesty, purity etc. my character...not only because it is joyous, but because it's right. And becuase it is right, it means I can have joy based on the choices I make... so everday I try to be more christlike. I believe happiness is a choice. I believe in doing what is right.

What is faith?

Faith is a belief in something we can't see, and beliefs are what shape our actions. When we believe in Christ, it means we believe that if we follow His teachings our life will be happy and blessed...and so we act. Anything less is a wish....although as soon as a wish shapes actions, it becomes faith. Faith is an action word, it's a verb. Acting in something we cannot see but Believe. Show more Show less
