Hi I'm Brandon Curtis Rimer
Hi, I am Brandon. I can tell you because of how I was raised and I like rugby. I like to also collect coins like the state and national park quarters they put out. I myself am an Eagle Scout; I have had many experiences while being a scout. I try to get some of the young adults interested in playing. I am going to college to be a social-worker. I am 23 now, and I had a father who wouldn't let really experience anything. However, that is all, and now I can go and experience life and learn how to make right decisions on my own. My favorite thing that I have experienced since that time was being a missionary for the church in Australia. I have seen many people change after telling them, how I grew up. Most people underestimate me at first, but if you do that would be your mistake! I have a standard to live; I don't intend to change it for anybody. I have a goal to be perfect, yet I am far from. I look for God for advice. I am a man who loves God. I never will turn from him. I know that he'll guide me when I do make mistakes. I know If we follow him we cannot fall. The rest you'll just have to ask.....
Why I am a Mormon
I am Mormon because I sought God out on my initiative. I sought him so that I could know and act and become a better person than I once was. I am Mormon because I know that this church is the true church on this earth even through all the struggles.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
In my life prayer is a number one essential, cause I may have grow up a Mormon, but I was never taught to pray form my parents. I have taken the things I have learn from church and applied them in my life and have seen miracles through prayer. I have had pray help me find something I misplaced, to finding people to hear the gospel as a missionary for the church, to also knowing which path I should take in school. I have found prayer useful in choosing who I will marry. I have also found it useful when I need comfort, and relief from the stress of life. I just want people to know this, and benefit from it. If you want to know more let me know.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
We go on missions to help others know about what we know about god. To strengthen when thing get hard, cause I know what we share can bring comfort to any heart, if they have the desire to know god. I personally know that what believe can help anyone, if they want to hear. We allow people to believe any thing they want, but I f they are curious in what have, we share it. We share it to the best of our ability. I just want everyone to know what we know, and to benefit from it. If you want to know more let me know.
What has helped develop greater harmony in your home?
Well I live on my own. I have not had much experience with harmony in in my family. It's nothing I could really fix, but learn from. I have seen many mistakes from all the men in my family, on raising families. I know and desire to improve and be better than all of them. I try to let them know I love them, but keep my distance, so I will not intake their influences. I hope have helped you benefit from this. If you want to know more let me know.
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
To be honest I know that what we believe happens after this life is true. I lost a brother when I was a freshmen in high school, and I took it hard. About 5months later from that I lost a great family friend to skin cancer I loved how she always told me to smile. Then when I was 19 I had another brother die, this time in a tragic accident, a year later I was in Australia and lost a grandmother to Alzheimer's Disease. then a month later my 97 year old great grandmother died of bowl cancer. About the same time I made a friend with this Tongan guy who died of a heart attack 4 1/2 months after I met him. I know without a doubt that I will see all these wonderful people again. It has been hard, but with a little faith you can know what we know, and benefit from it. If you want to know more let me know.
What is hope and what do you hope for?
Well hope is tied to faith, Without hope, faith is useless. When we have hope, we have faith and we are more likely to see, and accept the lords blessing that he has in-store. I personally hope that I can live and become like god. We believe that through Christ we can become like him, who is like our Heavenly Father. I hope you can benefit from this, and if you want to know more just let me.
How does making right choices help us make more right choices?
Well when you make good choices you feel good, and want to do more good. Yet when we make bad choices, we tend to follow more bad choices. Choices are like chain reactions they can be toward a good purpose or a bad purpose. Also when you make good choices, you also set a good example for others to follow, and the goes for bad choices. I know this to be true, hope you benefit, If you want to know more, just let me know.
Can you think of a specific challenge in your family that Gospel Principles helped overcome?
I would say that the atonement has been the key principle that has members of my family. That sacrifice that Christ gave for all who will ever walk this earth has wiped all away the pain of mistakes. The atonement has caused rejoicing for my siblings and myself as the affects of child abuse have finally been lifted after many years. I know that the atonement can help anyone through any struggle if they allow it. Hope you benefit, if you want to know more, just let me know.
How I live my faith
I don't care if anyone knows that I am Mormon, that's why that it is usually the first thing I tell everybody. I try to talk to all my friends about what I believe, but I don't push them to believe it, but I will invite them. I usually tell people my favorite phrase to say which is "Light Up the Darkness". I try my best to participate in church service activities, especially with the heavy load I have taken upon myself with school and everything. When I was in Las Vegas, I would move people in and out of our community if the opportunity presented itself. As a missionary in Australia, we provided service, and asked everybody even those who were not of our faith if they needed our help. In Australia I got to work with Youth and Young Single Adult groups. I also tend to be an overall, negative view, due to family issues. However, I let the atonement of the LORD, an Savior Jesus Christ consume the pain of sin, the pain caused by others, and the pain of physical ailments. I want people to benefit from it. If you want to know more let me know. I also live my faith by loving all those around by being readily available serve at a moment notice. I am constantly improving and looking for improvement, for I am not perfect.
