Hi I'm Braden

I be Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Mormon. I am a Master's student of Information Systems Management at BYU. I'm also a software developer, a geek. And I love it. I'm a huge sports player/fan. I play anything I can think of including, but not limited to: ultimate frisbee, basketball, football, racquetball, snowboarding, pole vaulting, soccer, etc. I love music. I play the guitar. I love my family. I served a mission in Brazil, and I love the friends that I have from there as well as the culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's the only way to truly be happy in life. As I've come to learn more about the church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I've come to realize the love that Jesus Christ has for me. I gained my own testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through study and prayer and know that it is the only true church. It blesses my life more than I thought possible and there are countless blessings I don't even realize I receive as I follow Jesus Christ. I'm a member of the church because it allows me to feel love. Everybody is so nice and they genuinely care. I'm a Mormon because I can be clean of my mistakes. Nobody is perfect. That's why the Savior needed to be, and was. He's how we have our guilt and our shame taken away. Being a member of the church gives me purpose in life. It gives me direction. It gives me a reason to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. I show an example by following the greatest example, Jesus Christ. When I am able to emulate a small aspect of His personality, whether it be love, service, or something else, I am showing my faith in Him, and in His church and Gospel. I'm not perfect. But He was and I can be. I try to share uplifting messages with others at appropriate times. The Gospel is good news.

Are Mormons Christians?

First off, our church's name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That has the name Jesus Christ right in it. And I would invite all to read 2nd Nephi 25:26 from the Book of Mormon. You can look it up online or read from a friends book. That gives a good idea about how Christian we are. Show more Show less
