Hi I'm Brett.

I love speaking Spanish. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy many things including; Hiking, biking, reading, watching movies in Spanish, and flying my kite. I've traveled to many places within the United States, from Florida to Hawaii, and going on month long road trips and camping outside with my sister in scary forests are some of my most memorable times growing up. I'm studying Spanish to help the hispanic population here by becoming an interpreter, perhaps for a local hospital or for the government. I got married in July, 2012 and I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I remember attending church every Sunday, and one particular Sunday stands out to me. At about the age of 14 I had just received a good long lesson about what the Book of Mormon was. I can't honestly recall anything from the lesson but one scripture in the back of the book. It invited me to pray and ask God if the Book of Mormon was true or not. I went home and didn't think anything more about the lesson until just before bed, a thought came to mind: "Pray about the Book of Mormon." So I kneeled down next to my bed and prayed and asked if it was true. A most wonderful sense of peace and light came over me. I didn't have a vision or anything of that sort, but the feeling was so strong that I pondered that feeling for several hours until sleep overcame me. Ever since then I've relied on that feeling in everything I do and try to follow the teachings of God as contained in the Book of Mormon and from the latter day prophets. From time to time the feeling returns and I know that what I'm doing is what God wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I just got done serving a full time mission for the Church and I plan on sharing the gospel my whole life. Much of how I live my faith is actually inside me. I believe in many things and one thing I believe is that anyone can be happy and have a stable life no matter the circumstances as long as they have the principles and doctrines of God in their life.
