Hi I'm Brad

I enjoy the arts and anything creative. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a graphic designer, advertising guy, photographer, grandfather, amateur musician. I'm happily married and enjoy the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a family with a long history in the church. When I was young I became convinced that the things I had been taught were true. As a young man I served as a missionary in Germany for two years where my convictions matured and were strengthened. I have seen God's influence in every aspect of my life and I am grateful for my knowledge of the divinity of Jesus Christ and the power of the atonement.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to keep the 10 commandments and by serving in our local church. I enjoy teaching classes and helping in the Scouting program. We pray together as a family and hold a weekly Family Home Evening with our teenage daughters where we discuss gospel principles, sing, read scriptures and plan family activities.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Brad
We believe Joseph Smith was called by God as a young man to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth and organize a church based on the New Testament church that Jesus organized. He was living in upstate New York state in the 1820s, had a very limited education but by divine inspiration translated an ancient record called the Book of Mormon. We believe it is a companion volume to the Bible because it is a religious history of followers of Christ who lived on the American continent in Biblical times. Show more Show less
