Hi I'm Bryan
I grew up in Texas, one of 6 children. When I was 11, my family moved to Washington. This is where I went through high school, got my first job, and spent endless summers with friends. I like trying new things. I've been a runner, actor, singer, fast food employee, skateboarder, filmmaker, guitar player, mentor, programmer, designer and painter. Now, I'm a husband and father. I work with technology full-time, building online apps and websites.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon, because it brings me security. I am secure in knowing who God is, and how to talk to him. Through this church I find guidance from him, which helps me improve myself, help others, and learn how to be a better husband and father.
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
By knowing God's plan, I am able to overcome the daily challenges. I know that his plan allows me to live after I die, to reunite with my family and my Heavenly Father. With this perspective, failing an exam, battling an illness, or losing a loved one all feel like temporary setbacks. Suddenly, trying to be more wealthy than your neighbors isn't so important. I am able to focus more on things that bring me lasting happiness, like building quality relationships and preparing to raise a family. Overall, knowing God's plan causes me to feel like my trials are less bitter and my joys are more rich.
How I live my faith
I seek to develop Christlike attributes, so I can be a positive influence to all around me. Christ taught that he who seeks to save his life, will lose it, but those who lose their lives in selflessness will find themselves. In all I do, I strive to serve others, assisting in whatever form I can.
