Hi I'm Brady Haws

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a skier. I absolutely love skiing and even learned to snowboard a little bit. I worked as ski instructor to help pay my way through college. I enjoy many other sports like soccer, and football. I really love music. I play the guitar, and I am an ameature dj for dance parties with my friends. I attend college, studying mechanical engineering, and I recently married the most wonderful woman of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the relationship I know that I have with my Heavenly Father. I can kneel down and with the most humble, simple, and sincere prayer I can pour out my heaert to Him and know that He is real and that He loves me. As I seek God out, He will respond to my prayers and help me understand who I am, who He is, and how I can be more like Him. I know that I am a child of God.

How I live my faith

I try in every way to be more like Jesus Christ, and help others to do the same. I learn of Him through reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and by listening to His prophet's counsel. I attend church each week to learn more from what others have learned about Jesus Christ and to share my insights as well. Most importantly I attend church each week to participate in the sacrament, the very symbol that Jesus Christ instituted as a rememberance of Him. I worship Jesus Christ through remembering His sacrifice for me, and trying to follow Him.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Brady Haws
Jesus Christ was crucified. His apostles were killed. People rejected His teachings and the organization Jesus Christ established fell apart. The Bible had many plain and important things taken out of it, and now it is somewhat confusing. Hence, many churches are now organized, and every single one of them claim to be the church of Jesus Christ. But His church is not based on the Bible...it is based on what the Bible is based on...revelation from God to living prophets. The restortaion of the gospel was needed in order to place the one single organization of Christ on the earth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the one and only church that is founded on what the Bible, and the Book of Mormon are based on...revelation directly from God to an actual living prophet called of God.
