Hi I'm Brandon

I attend the University of Utah. I am the greatest football fan! Love being a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving in the greatest mission there is...THE Ohio Cleveland Mission! I love being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It has taught me a lot and has helped me to grow. And the best part of it is, I wasn't noticing the changes until lately. I can honestly say I have not thought of myself as I have gone out to try and serve my fellow brothers and sisters and bring them home. I don't even miss my football and music as much anymore (I was a football player and a singer). I just want to do this for the rest of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church and was taught by amazing parents. I am a Mormon because I recieved a solid answer, that I know this Church is true, that the Book of Mormon was translated by the power of God through Joseph Smith. I know we have a living prophet on the earth today, his name is Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in the great state of Ohio! I have the blessed oppurtunity to serve so many people and help teach them about our loving Heavenly Father, our Savior Jesus Christ, and how the Gospel can help change their lives. I have already seen miracles and have seen even myself grow and change to become the man the Lord would have me to be.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Brandon
We do not. We worship God the Father and Jesus Christ His Son. Joseph Smith is like a modern day Moses or Noah who was called to do something great. He was an important man, but not a god to worship. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Brandon
Yes we are. The name of our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, says it all. Christ is the center of how we live and what we teach. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Brandon
The Book of Mormon was written by the inhabitants of ancient America. The Prophets that were called in this land taught of the coming of Christ. The Book of Mormon is a record of these people, the ancestors to the Native Americans. Show more Show less

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Brandon
 The husband is the patriarch of the home. It's under his stewardship what goes on in the home. He is the priesthood holder. He carries the resposibilities of fulfilling his duties at home and in his callings. The wife is the nurturer, counselor, the support. Both have the resposibility to raise children in the ways of the Lord Isaiah 5413 Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Brandon
 As we read the scriptures, we see that Christ's disciples gave up everything they had to follow Him. This is what's called consecration, when you dedicate yourself to whatever calling the Lord gives to you. The Lord never paid His disciples. The only one who was given money was Judas Iscariot because he betrayed the Savior. Show more Show less
