Hi I'm Brent Baxter
I have grown up in the same city in Utah my whole life. I play every sport but golf and soccer are probably my two favorites. If I am not playing sports, I am usually watching them on tv. I am currently serving a mission in the Washington Everett Mission and loving every minute of it.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up in the mormon religion and I feel so blessed for that. My parents were a great example to me and their faith allowed me to have a chance to gain my own faith in Jesus Christ and His church. I am a mormon because I have done what the Book Of Mormon says to do and that is to ask God if the things the church teaches is true and whether or not Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know by the power of the holy ghost that Jesus did set up a church when he was on the earth and now it is once again restored onto the earth. Being a mormon has been the greatest blessing in my life. My family is so close and we know that we can be together forever.
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
I had a very humbling and very life changing experience in September 2010. My grandparents were involved in a serious car accident and now they are both in the spirit world. Even though I have lost two of the greatest people in my life, I KNOW that I will be able to see them again one day. I know that through the atonement of Jesus Christ and the great plan that God has, we will live with our families forever by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
How I live my faith
Right now I am serving a mission in the Washington Everett Mission. I go out from 10 in the morning until 9 at night and teach people about how the gospel has been restored to the earth. I learn more each day by studying for 2 hours in the morning. I love being able to see the people that I teach come closer to Christ and see how the restored gospel can help them in their lives.
