Hi I'm Brock

I'm a Golfer, I'm a Missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Brock and I am from Oregon. I like to snowboard, golf (gentlemen only ladies forbidden), jump off tall cliffs, and of course I like to swim. Oh, and I LOVE listening to music. I can't play anything, but that's what friends are for. Right now I'm serving a mission, but before I was serving a mission, I worked at a golf course. I'm not very good, but I think that golf is definitally the best sport ever. Not that exciting, I know, but that's me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, so that's how I gained the title "Mormon." But obviously I stayed for some reason. I am Mormon because I abolutely know that my life wouldn't be as good as it is right now without it. I consider myself to be a happy guy, and I'm not sure I can recall even one day where I wouldn't be able to say "Today has been a good day." I'm not saying that life is easy, or that is should be, but I guess for me I feel like its where I belong.

How I live my faith

I am currently a 2 year full time mission for the church. I think that spreading the gospel on a day to day basis is a pretty good way to live life, and I think that after my mission I will continue what I've started here on a mission. I feel tons of joy from spreading how I feel about Christ. I read my scriptures every day, and go to church every week. Really time consuming, but totally worth it.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Brock
I thought about this question a lot. But if you think about it, if you serve God, should you get paid for something that is supposed to be service? I don't believe clergy should be paid, because money distracts from who we are serving, Jesus Christ. Do I want to help Christ by earning a living, or do I want to help Christ by helping him build up his church with my own funds. Simple as that. Show more Show less
