Hi I'm Brady

I'm a Mormon. Being a mormon has been one of the greatest blessings of my life.

About Me

My name is Brady. I love the church. I am currently serving a full time mission for the church. Which means, i am putting my life on hold for two years, so i can teach people the truthfulness of this church and gospel. I enjoy many things, but mainly enjoy the outdoors. Some of the activities i take part in, are rock climbing/repelling, swimming, boating, and camping. I also enjoy spending time with my family. Through families we find true happiness. Theres nothing greater than the love of your mother, father, and siblings. I detest all things that can harm or destroy the family unit.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but was given the opportunity, through my agency (which we all have), to choose if i wanted to continue in the mormon church or find another which i believed in. It all simply came down to, praying to God for an answer. I only prayed for one thing though, to know if the Book of Mormon was true. For if i knew that it was true i knew everything else in the church would be also. Needless to say i got my answer, an overwhelming sense of peace and happiness came over me. I then knew the church of Jesus Christ, of Latter-Day Saints (the mormon church) was true, and ordained of God. If you wonder also if it is, i encourage you to read the book of mormon and pray about it as/when you read it, to know if it is true like me and so many others do.

How I live my faith

I live the teachings of the church. With a belief in God and that he has an amazing plan for us to return to him, and that it is through Jesus Christ. I live by the Word of Wisdom, which can be found in Doctrine & Covenants 89, which can be found in the book of mormon. I live so that i may ultimately return to my heavenly father, and live eternally with him and my family.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

There isn't anything secet going on. The temple is the house of God. In the scriptures we read, "no unclean thing can enter into the house of the Lord". That is why some mormons (members as we usually call them) can't go to the temple. About what happens in the temple, we just simply perform sacred ordineces. It's not like offering sacrifices or anything (we aren't a cult....), we just simply make it possible for families who didn't have a chance to recieve the gospel, recieve it in the afterlife, through doing ordinences for the dead. They are sacred, so we don't talk about them and what they are (just like your credit card number, if people knew what it was, bad things would probably happen). Show more Show less
