Hi I'm Brent

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, father and grandfather. Being a grandfather is the greatest experience I could ever hope for. I am employed as a Facilities Manager. I enjoy photography and riding my atv. I enjoy time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the church. My family taught me the gospel as I grew up. I have been blessed to always have a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a teenager I wandered away from activity but I never doubted what I had been taught. Because of poor choices I felt unworthy to participate in church activity. Early in my marriage my little brother was killed in a car accident. I was very upset that God would take him, someone who was living the Gospel and not me. Someone who was not living the Gospel. I struggled for several months with understanding his death. A co-worker recognized my struggles and taught me the Plan of Salvation. A doctrine I had been taught as a youth but had forgotten. Through his efforts, and a patient wife and understanding priesthood leaders I slowly returned to activity. I experienced forgiveness for my sins. I came to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I love him. I am grateful for the knowledge that I can be with my family throughout the eternities. I believe with all my heart that I will see my brother again. That is because of the Savior. He makes that possible. I find a sense of comfort and peace in my life because of the gospel.

How I live my faith

For several years I have worked with the youth in our community. I have been involved with the local youth detention center and quickly came to love youth that were having some very difficult experiences in their lives. These are great kids who have made some poor choices. I know that God loves them and is concerned for their well-being. I teach an addiction recovery group each week for these youth. I also serve in the youth organization in our local congregation. The youth are our future and it is a priveledge to work with them and get to know them and see the strengths they possess.
