Hi I'm Brett

I'm a TV reporter and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 24 year old who enjoys work and having fun. I am a college graduate. I majored in broadcast journalism and am now using my degree to inform the public what is going on in their community. I enjoy skiing, hiking, working out, playing games, talking to people and going to movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith, but just like every convert there came a time where I had to learn for myself if the church was the true gospel of Jesus Christ. If what my parents taught me really was what God wanted me to do and follow. My conversion didn't magically overnight. I had to read the scriptures, pray, and apply the principles that I learned when I studied. I am a Mormon because I feel good when I follow those principals. I am a Mormon because I know the spirit of God has told me and continues to tell me through little ways that I am on the right track.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by practicing what I preach. I go to church every week and come home trying to apply what I learned there into my life. Every morning before work I get up early, go to the gym, get ready for work, but before I leave I take a little time to read my scriptures. I try to bring the gospel into my life everyday. By thinking about it daily I can not only better myself but those around me.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Thomas Monson. But he isn't the Mormon prophet, he is the entire world's prophet. He is God's mouthpiece on Earth. We believe God loves us today as much as he loved the people who lived at the time of Moses or Noah. Why would God call prophets then but not now? We do not worship the prophet but we do listen and abide by his teachings because they come from God. The way I know he is true prophet is by listening to what he teaches.
