Hi I'm Bryan Cardon

I'm a father of 5 children. My wife and I have been married 15 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to spend time with family. I enjoy watching NBA basketball. I enjoy running and exercise. I like to read and stay up on politics.

Why I am a Mormon

I always believed in God, but when I became an adult, I realized I was still uncertain about the Book of Mormon or Joseph Smith. I didn't want to go through life telling people that I believed in something that I wasn't really sure about, so I decided to try and find out for myself, independent of what anybody had told me while growing up. I started by actually reading and analyzing the Book of Mormon. By the time I reached the end, the question was still there, so I decided that I needed to pray. I believed that God would somehow answer my prayer and let me know if it were true or not. Looking back I realize that my experience with conversion is different from other people, and I think God customized it for me and my understanding. It may or may not apply to someone else. When I prayed at first I didn't feel any differently, but the longer I prayed I started to feel more and more at peace. The peaceful feeling was so distinct, that its hard to describe, and I had never felt anything quite like it. I knew God was answering my prayer by giving me a feeling of peace. That experience was years ago, but the feeling was so unique I will never forget.

How I live my faith

I try and live my faith each day, not just on Sunday. In my church assignment, I have been asked to speak to the various congregations in our stake about once a month. This gives me a chance to really study and prepare on a regular basis. I try to live the ideals I talk about. My family and I attend our worship services regularly. We hold a weekly Family Night and try to eat dinner together every night. We talk to our kids about the principles of the Gospel like faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, and living a clean and moral life.
