Hi I'm Bryan

I'm a scientist. I'm a father. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love anything and everything science. Some - many in fact - have asked me if this conflicts with my beliefs. The answer is simple: no. I have actually found the more I learn through science, the more I understand how the Gospel is linked to everything around us. I am a father of three beautiful children who challenge me on a daily basis. I don't know where I would be without them. They are the most incredible and amazing blessings in my life next to my wife. She is my angel.

Why I am a Mormon

I know with all my heart that the doctrines and foundations of this Church are of God. How do I know? Because I studied, I prayed and I asked God through prayer if the things I had learned and experienced were true. I can tell you that God does answer prayers. He has continued to answer mine ever since, and I have seen His hand in so many miracles and blessings in peoples' lives. I cannot deny what I know in my heart to be true. I know what I have seen and even more than that, I know what I have felt. No amount of ridicule or hardship could force me to deny what I know to be true.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving in the church as a Gospel Teacher. I have served in many teaching roles and leadership callings in the Wards I have lived in. I also served a 2 year mission for the Church to Venezuela where I met many wonderful people.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to act in the name of God. It is the same power that Moses used to part the Red Sea the same power that Christ used to heal the sick and calm the waters the same power that He gave His Apostles to administer to the people on the day of Pentecost. That power exists today due to the restoration of this Priesthood to Joseph Smith under the hands of Peter, James and John, the last men to hold the keys of this authority on earth prior to the restoration to Joseph Smith.
