Hi I'm Bjarne

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life is centered around church, music, running and of course my wonderful family. I am a professional classical violinist in an orchestra in Denmark, and have played music almost all my life, I have my musical background in folkmusic and started playing the guitar as a ten year old and turned to the 5 stringed banjo (clawhammer style) as a 12 year old and had to try a violin. I have since then played mostly classical music but love my roots in the folk. I love music. I also enjoy running, especially in Gods nature, I run almost every day and find great pleasure in it.

Why I am a Mormon

I heard about the restored gospel for the first time as a young teenager in school, and felt myself drawn to the teachings and the many different lifestyles of the church, I met with 2 missionaries at age 18 and knew it would be the path I would follow, I was overwhelmed at the feeling of love I felt from my Savior through the 2 Missionaries message, and my desire to join the church grew and grew and I was baptized shortly after my first meeting with them. My meeting with the Book of Mormon was also a happy one, and I know it is the word of God.

How I live my faith

I have ever since my baptism served in many callings in the church, My first calling was as a Music leader in the ward, and I was incredibly happy to have the opportunity to serve a full time mission for 2 years for the church to "pay" back the gift the 2 (3) missionaries who taught me, gave to me. I served my mission in Ireland from 1987-89, it was a period of great growth and I have many sweet memories from that time. I am serving as a Branch President at the moment, and it is providing me with many blessings. I love my family very much and spend as much time with them as possible.
