Hi I'm Brandon

I live in San Diego county. I like backpacking in the great outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Grossmont College. I am 23 years old. I just got married this summer July 24th, 2010. I love to go backpacking in the mountains. I am a C.O.P.E. Director for the Boy Scouts of America. I also teach rock climbing.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to this church and was taught to have high moral standards. I was baptized at the age of 8 and I continue to attend church every sunday. I believe my life would have almost no meaning or direction at all if I was not a member of this church. I know that I am a child of God. The principles of the gospel help us to live happy lives both here on this earth and in the life after we die. I can tell you that I have no doubt that this is the True church of Jesus Christ and that we have a prophet on the earth today just like in times of old. I can testify of these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I am active in the Boy Scouts of America. I teach rock climbing and other activities like the high ropes course and the zip line. I am the athletic director in my ward. I love how the church focuses on spiritual, physical and intellectual excellence. It is not a walk in the park to keep high standards in this world that is changing everyday. God doesn't change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. It takes strength to stand up for what is right and that is what I like most about living by the gospel.

What is being a Mormon like?

being a member of this church is not just attending church on sunday to learn and participate in sacred ordinances. I will tell you from a young person's perspective. It is a whole social network keeping you connected to the right people encouraging eachother to participate in wholesome activites. Being at church related activites are the most fun anyone could ever dream about. And best of all. Each laugh is guilt-free and morally straight. Show more Show less
