Hi I'm Brandt

I find my greatest happiness through service to others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty normal guy. Born and raised in Pocatello Idaho, I learned to love to act and have been at it ever since i was ten, preforming in several local productions. I love to create, and a venue i am able to create most often with is graphic design and Improv. comedy, i have had the chance to preform and teach Improv. comedy up at my collage in Rexburg Idaho. Chinese food is the best! I really like to snowboard although i hate the cold. (man, for a guy who does improv. comedy this paragraph is pretty dry, ok heres an idea) knock knock, interrupting cow, (and before you finish saying "interrupting cow who" I yell...) MOOOOO!! There you go now this paragraph is a lot more interesting.

Why I am a Mormon

That is a great question! Right off the bat I might have said, "Because I was born into a family that was already Mormon." The truth of the matter is, that now i'm an adult and take care of myself, just being born would not be enough for me to stay active in the church. I know that for me being Mormon is about having true happiness in my life. Simply put, when i do the things the church teaches, I am happy, it really is that simply for me. I count myself very lucky to have lasting happiness in a world where many people search and can't find it. it's about having a very real friend in God and Jesus, whenever you need them, that is the main fountain of this happiness, never being alone, having two perfect friends who can always guide me to happiness.

How I live my faith

I think one of the biggest ways that I try to live my faith is through acts of service to others, however small they may be. To me service is one of the most effective ways to feel closer to God and the Savior, it brings the happiness in my life that makes life shine at its brightest. I get just as much from serving as those I serve. The more I concentrate on myself the less happy i am, the more I concentrate on helping others the happier I am, simple huh? I have found that there are many small ways to serve others, be a friend, make a visit to someone, give them a ride, wash a dish, if you look you will find.
