Hi I'm Brent

I'm the middle of 3 boys. I like to ride my bicycle. I love playing the ukulele and Chess, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle child of 3 boys. I was super young when my parents divorced and I was raised primarily by my mother. We moved when they divorced but my dad was/is still a part my life and is an active member of another Christian church. I love to play sports, even though I'm not that good in them. In high school I was played Football, Soccer, and also ran in track. I like to hang out with friends and family. I also like playing the ukulele and trying to sing, and I like to play chess! 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ is what brings me true and lasting happiness. I've had many experiences in the past with the things of the world that have brought me joy and happiness, but I've come to realize that the happiness and joy that I experience from such things is only temporary. I was raised in the Church, but like everyone else, there comes a time where you need to gain your own testimony, to see if what you were raised in is actually true. For me, this has come through countless hours of personal scripture study and prayer. I know that my faith in Jesus Christ has been strengthened through studying and praying about both the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I strive to be a super active member of the church. My faith has lead me to act upon the things that I believe in and know to be true. I am currently involved in helping to strengthen and uplift a group of young single adults. I try to follow as closely as I can the perfect example that Jesus Christ has set.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Nope. That's silly. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Brent
 Eternal life is living in the presence of God forever after this life. Everyone has an opportunity to inherit such a gift. We do so by living Christ's Gospel, which is developing our faith in Him, repenting of our sins, following His example by being baptized by one who holds the proper authority, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost or in other words, being born of the Spirit and continuing throughout our life to keep God's commandments.    Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Brent
A testimony is a collection of the things that the Holy Ghost have confirmed to us are true. I am thankful for the big and strong testimony that I have of God and of Jesus Christ. I truly do know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and the only One that makes it possible for us to return into the presence of our Heavenly Father. Knowing that my testimony is so big and strong leads me to a question that I can't quite figure out. What's bigger: my biceps or my testimony? haha. Show more Show less
