Hi I'm Brett

I'm a world traveller, graduate of mechanical engineering, master's student of computer science, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love languages and traveling. I've spent time living in Canada, Australia, England, France, Denmark, Luxembourg, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Thailand, Singapore, and China. I love orchestral music and dabbling in everything, from hiking to ballroom dance. I love fixing and designing things, which led me to my undergraduate, mechanical engineering. I'm now studying computer science.

Why I am a Mormon

I really found out that the Lord wanted me in His Church when I read the Book of Mormon for the first time. At first, it was interesting. Then, I started feeling different when I read. Eventually, I could genuinely say I felt inspiration from my Father in Heaven that the book was true. I prayed for confirmation of my feelings and He answered with a feeling of comfort I can't forget. That same feeling has been present at key times in my life. I really got to share my love for this gospel when I decided to serve a preaching and service mission for two years in the Czech Republic. Now that I'm married and graduated, I feel a lot of joy in living a gospel-centered life and in serving others.

How I live my faith

Every day starts and ends with prayer on my own and with my wife. Scripture study by myself and with my spouse is also a daily habit. I really enjoy visiting with people to discuss what's going on in our lives and how to make sense of it all and make the most of it in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have people over for dinner and games all the time. Sunday Church services are a joy and really make my week.

Who are the Mormons?

Mormons are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We get that name from a book of scripture we really treasure in addition to the Holy Bible. That is the Book of Mormon. It's a record by prophets about God's interaction with people in the ancient Americas, just as the Bible is a record of God's interaction with people in the Old World in ancient times.

What is faith?

Faith is trusting in God and moving forward with that belief. I have faith that as I pray, God will hear and answer my prayers. Oftentimes, I recognize those answers and know that because of that faith, I've been blessed with the answers I need. Show more Show less
