Hi I'm Brad

I live in Minnesota with my wife and 3 daughters. Whether it's working or playing, I love being outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 3 beautiful daughters and a beautiful wife. We love living in Minnesota where the warm and friendly people make up for the long cold winters. I love riding my road bike and doing just about anything outdoors. I love building things and always have a project going - just ask my wife. At work, I lead a team of analysts, focusing on customer behavior and developing marketing strategies. I also volunteer as a board member for a local non-profit organization that helps low income families.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon because I feel like I'm part of something special and unique. Whenever I tell a friend or colleague about how our church came to be, it reaffirms my feelings about its truthfulness. God and Jesus Christ truly did visit the boy Joseph Smith and started him down the path of restoring essential Gospel principles. The Mormon church also provides great guidelines for how I should be living and how I should teach my children to live. Living by these guidelines isn't always easy or the most fun thing to do, but they provide peace and long term joy.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Mormon church has taught me to love serving others. Whenever I have an opportunity to volunteer or help someone in need, I think of the example of Jesus Christ and how he served others throughout his life. In my community, I work as a scout leader. I also sit on a board of directors for a local non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to low income families. I love the feeling I get from helping people in need and believe that this feeling is an affirmation that I am following the teachings of Jesus when I serve others.
