Hi I'm Brent

I lived in Manaus, Brazil. I speak Portuguese. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I studied business management, I love to spend time with my wife, and I enjoy being in the mountains. Mountain biking, fishing, hiking, backpacking, and studying geology are among my favorite past times. I also love to learn about how things work. Today, I'm a financial adviser and love to help educate people on how to manage their financial lives. I love to help people improve their lives in any way I can. I believe that I should share my gifts and talents with everyone I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it's helps me lead the best life I can. My parents are Mormon, and they raised me as a member of the church. I found, however, that I had to know for myself that the church was true, for it to make a significant and lasting difference in my life. Through observing good and bad examples alike, I was able to find the importance of living a gospel-centered life. As I pray and read the scriptures, I feel in my heart that there is something more than this life, and I know that we can realize our true potential through Jesus Christ. He loves us. We can each feel His love every day. Being Mormon allows me to feel His love. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others to learn the truth. I try to teach by example, as well as in words. I believe that we can have a profound impact for good on the lives of those around us, even on those to whom we have never even spoken. As I strive to do my best to keep our Heavenly Father's commandments, I try to help others to understand the importance of doing the same because I want to share the wonderful life that I enjoy. I always look for opportunities to serve others. I can really feel down when I don't shine my light out on others. As I help other people, my own joy increases as well as theirs. I know that when I'm in the service of my fellow men, I am in the service of God.

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is only through Him that we may be perfected and be able to endure all our challenges in this life. Show more Show less
