Hi I'm Bryan

I live in the United States

About Me

I'm married and have a little boy. I study Music Education in Idaho. I lived in the Philippines for two years and loved it. I enjoy playing racquetball and softball. In also enjoy spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

The doctrine I've been taught is basic and easy to understand. I've been Mormon my whole life and there has not been a definitive moment where I was like, "Now I know." But it has been a process of becoming what the Savior would have me be. I've been to the Sacred Grove where Joseph Smith saw God and I've been to the Carthage Jail where he was martyred where I felt certain closeness to the spirit. The Spirit testifies to me every time I go there that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I was able to spend 2 years as a missionary in the Philippines. I was able to see the power of the gospel change the lives of many for the better. Families where united and people where able to love more fully those around them. This gospel has the power to change someone for the better. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the key to this change. If it was not Christ's mercy, we would never be able to improve our lives and become clean from our mistakes.

How I live my faith

Where I work, I am the only practicing Mormon. This has it's challenges as to everyone is watching what I do. I make sure that I am always watching what I do and say. I also am in charge of making sure that people are being visited from the men in my ward.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is so important because it is ordained of God. The family is the central part of our life. I believe that the issues we have in this world is because the family has been diminished. If we just focus on rebuilding the importance of the family, the issues we face as a world will be solved. Show more Show less
