Hi I'm Brian

I am a Father, a thinker, love to plan ahead, work for a credit union and love spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful wife and have 3 children. I love coming home at the end of the day and having my children greet me as if they have not seen me in weeks. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. One of my strongest qualities is that I am a hard worker. I love to keep my self busy whether at work or around the house fixing things or doing yard work. I served a mission for the church in Florida and would say those two years were full of great memories but more importantly has molded me into the person I am today. Serving a mission gave me experiences I would not of had in any other setting in life and I am grateful for having served.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Even though I have always been a member of the church I have pondered life's question of who am I and why am I here. I believe that this life has a purpose and that there is a God who is our Father in Heaven. He knows and loves me and wants me to be happy. I believe that everyone through prayer and faith can come to know this as well. I know that l lived with my Father in Heaven as a spirit before coming to Earth and came here to gain a physical body and experience life to be happy. It is in this life that I have been given agency to make choices. Like a loving Father He knew that with agency I would make mistakes and prepared a way for me overcome those mistakes through His Son Jesus Christ. It is through our Savior Jesus Christ that repentance is made possible and I can come closer to him. In The Church I believe Jesus Christ is the head of His Church and that he has called prophets in our day just as he did in ancient times to be his voice and lead all children of our Father back into his presence. Through my faith I know that if I pray God will hear and answer my prayers. It is by the Holy Ghost that I can feel closer to my Father in Heaven and make choices that will bring me closer to him and my Savior.

How I live my faith

My faith is one of the key components of my life and defines who I am. I know I am here on this earth for a purpose and try to live my faith in everything I do. I try to say the things the Savior would say, act the way He would act and serve others as He would serve others. In the church there are many opportunities to serve which have helped me develop talents or helped me discover talents I never knew I had. I have served in many assignments in the church called callings. In those callings I have served in different capacities from Cub Scouts to teaching a lesson on gospel topics to adults. One calling I have had since my youth is being a Home Teacher. As a home teacher I get the opportunity of serving other families in the church by getting to know them and visiting with them at least once a month. In my home teaching visits a gospel topic focused on the teachings of the Savior is discussed as well as helping address any needs the family may have which I can help them with.
