Hi I'm Brent

Born in the church and proud that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 27 years old and have been married since February 2012. My wife and I just had a baby in August 2016. My wife and I were both born in the church. I am working for the University of Utah. I love sports and being with my family. I love making other people feel important and brightening their day.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church however I have gained a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel through the power of the Spirit. I love being a member and it helps me to be happy and understand who I am and who I can become. I know that this is the true church and that Jesus Christ loves us. He has given us His gospel so that we might have joy in this life and eternal life in the life to come. Being a member of the church is the best. My life is full of joy and growth and I can read about and get to know my Savior. I am a Mormon because that is what God wants me to be. I am a Mormon because that is who I want to be. Being a member brings so much knowledge that you can't get in any of the other churches. I love my life and I owe it all to God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just being me. I live my faith by trying to help others have a good day. It really isn't that hard to live one's faith, it is all a matter of choice and how much you love God and Jesus Christ. They ask us to be examples of them and do what they would do if they were here today. Living the faith is trying to be like our Savior.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Brent
 The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets through the power of the Holy Ghost. The book was written on the American continent. Joseph Smith did not write the Book of Mormon, he merely translated it through the power of God and under His command. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Brent
I know that husband and wife will be together forever. That is the purpose of having families on earth so that we might live as a family in heaven. I know that this is God's plan for His children. Can you really imagine heaven without your spouse? Your kids? Grand-kids? The design of a family is so that we will have a relationship of love and growth and knowledge that will last into the eternities. Why would God give us families on earth only to take them away upon death? I know that families can and will be together forever. That is God's plan and that is why we have temples all over the earth. Show more Show less
