Hi I'm Brian

I'm a fun loving, teeth cleaning, wife kissing, child rearing, husband of one, father of five. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I married my high school sweetie over 10 years ago. We have 5 kids and a little yellow house. I'm a dental hygienist and my wife manages our home. I really enjoy reading (classical literature is probably my favorite), working with tools, associating with friends and learning about how to implement alternative sources of energy.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ changed my life as a teenager. In fact, it gave me a life that is much more full and rich than what I ever imagined before I became converted to the teachings of Christ

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving my wife and raising my kids. I live my faith by working hard in my profession ( I'm a member of the National, State and Local Dental Hygiene association.). I live my faith by working with adults and youth to better their life. I serve as a counselor to a Bishop. I talk to people from other churches and nonbelievers about how Christ has touched my life.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Brian
The Book of Mormon is scripture. It is the words that God spoke to his prophets who lived in America long ago, just as the Bible is the words that God spoke to his prophets who lived in the Middle East. However, the Book of Mormon is much more that that to me. It is a book that changed my relationship to God, my family and those around me. It has taught me that as we seek to follow the teachings of Christ we can draw close to God. It has taught me that I can be forgiven of sins and can draw on God's grace to help me keep the commandments. It has also given me the ability to see past my faults and recognize the divine potential that is in me and all of God's children. The Book of Mormon is an extraordinary book that I have loved studying. I have learned that it was written for us today. As I study it I realize that God had the prophets record their teachings so that we would better know how to find happiness in our time. It helps us to know God, and how to avoid false teachings. One part of the Book of Mormon that I have come to love is the promise that it makes to everyone in Moroni 10:32. It tells us that if we sincerely read, think about and pray to know if the Book of Mormon is true God will confirm to us that it is. I have come to realize for myself that this book of scripture is true and I thank God for it. Show more Show less
