Hi I'm Brian Bruner

I work in Latin America for a living. I'm a family man. I'm a businessman. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the Director of Customer Service for Latin America & Canada at Abbott Diagnostics, a division of Abbott. I am the father of four amazing children - two boys 19, 17 and two girls 14, 12 and am married to my best friend and high school sweetheart. We live in Kenosha, Wisconsin and I have been a Mormon my whole life. I also enjoy speaking Spanish, traveling, playing basketball, reading, creative writing, and almost anything science fiction (especially Star Wars!). I'm also a big Disney fan. But mostly I enjoy spending time with my wife and children!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the LDS Church, I had to discover my own beliefs and make my own decisions. I have had so many experiences through my life that have confirmed my faith. In particular, I have felt the strength of the Lord through reading the Book of Mormon - I know that book is the word of God. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I do my best to be a good father, good husband, and to serve well in the Church. I try to do my best at serving others. I work hard and try to be a good example for my co-workers and friends. I currently serve as the President of our Stake (a group of LDS congregations) - that is overwhelming, exciting, stressful, and wonderful.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Brian Bruner
The family is central to God's plan, and the Church's main purpose is to strengthen, protect, and assist the family in bringing all of God's children back to live with him. Show more Show less
