Hi I'm Bryan Clark

I'm an avid runner, a food enthusiast, a milkshake connoisseur, and a pre-med student

About Me

I'm the 8th from a family of 9 kids, and I absolutely cherish my big family. I was born a triplet with two girls, and I wouldn't have it any other way, they mean everything to me. I grew up in Upstate, NY, among humble circumstances, but regardless lived a priveleged and happy childhood. I served a mission for the church in Uruguay, mainly because I always felt the desire to, and also because in doing so, I hoped to make a difference in the world. I'm currently working on my Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science, with the aim afterwards to attend medical school to become a Pediatrician. Kids are an absolute joy in my life, I think in large part due to my 10 nieces and nephews, who no one can help but love. I know it may sound cliche, but I just also love helping others. Coming from a very musically oriented family, I like to play the piano and sing. I also love to run, which includes training for marathons. I feel alive when I'm running, and I love the challenge of pushing myself in a dramatic way. Among other things I love to cook; my parents used to know when I was watching the tv because it would have been left on the Foodnetwork. I love to hike, play sports, and really do anything that is outdoors or social.

Why I am a Mormon

I don't consider my conversion story one of great excitement or great importance, in comparison to the amazing one's I've been chanced to hear and know. Nonetheless, this church means everything to me. I've found that in the gospel of Jesus Christ, as taught in its fulness in the Mormon church, I can find answers to all of life's perplexing questions. The teachings of this church have truly shaped my life into the happy person I am today, and more importantly, give me the challenge and potential to become the better person I know I can and will be. I didn't come to know in one moment that the Mormon church is true, but as i've studied and as I've applied myself to live its teachings, the more I come to know on a daily basis that i'm in the right place. Being a mormon has helped me find true meaning in my every day life, and guidance to the every day choices I have to make. I've found happiness in trying to be like Jesus, and most of all a sure hope amidst a challenging and intimidating world.

How I live my faith

The gospel of Jesus Christ means everything to me. I truly feel the beneficiary of God's blessings, most particularly joy, as I've sought to "lose my life" in His will. I do my best every day to apply the learning I gain. I start and end each day kneeling by my bed in prayer to God, and actively through the day seek his guidance and counsel. I study daily the Bible and Book of Mormon and attend church every Sunday. As part of my church, I have the chance to teach in a classroom setting the doctrine of the church. I also have the chance with a roommate of mine to periodically teach single members of the church the gospel in there homes, and how it can bless their lives. I love serving others, and in doing so, I feel God's love.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Bryan Clark
We believe God will reveal the truth unto those who are willing to believe. Therefore, if you are 1. willing to follow the answer he gives you, and 2. study the church out and 3. ask God sincerely in prayer if Mormonism is true, that he will reveal the truth to you by the feelings and impressions you receive. The feeling will be such that you can not deny that what you are feeling is true.  Show more Show less
