Hi I'm Brian

I'm a covert to the Mormon Church.

About Me

I married and we have 4 kids... One who just married. One in college, one out working and only one at home. I love the outdoors and have hiked all of Washington's Pacific Crest trail. I like endurance sports and am into bicycling since my knees are old from running.

Why I am a Mormon

My family joined the church when I was 9, but my father fell away soon after. (He is an active member today) I kind of went to church half heartedly until I had a friend almost die. It was then that I started to ask questions, and it was the first time I started to read the Book of Mormon and want to get an answer of my own. When I prayed I knew in my heart it was true. I have been an active member ever since. I have severed a mission for our church and hope to serve another one when I am older.

How I live my faith

I have served in may positions in the church... Mostly with youth. I help with Boy scouting programs and teaching merit badges and even when I don't serve in a scout position I am involved in summer activities.

What is the Law of Chastity?

To the outside world it may seam strange for a young man or a young woman to not have any sexual relations with anyone outside the bonds of marriage. But that is exactly what we ask our youth to do. Some would tell you it is impossible, but I know as a leader in our church that most of the Latter-day Saint youth do keep them selves pure. Just think how much more respect you have for your partner going into marriage knowing they save the most intimate part of their life for you. Show more Show less
