Hi I'm Brian

I'm a father, a student, an Army brat, a geek, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've spent my entire life moving across the United States. Currently I am working towards my Master's degree while I juggle being a husband and father. My family is my life. The time that isn't spent with them playing and laughing is spent studying and working hard to provide for my family.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was fourteen, I read the Book of Mormon and took the challenge at the end of the book. I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if it was true. At that moment, I knew the truth for myself because the Holy Spirit whispered to me. Since then I have felt many more whisperings telling me that this is Christ's church on the earth today. I may have been raised in this church, but I had to decide for myself if it was something I wanted to believe in. I've faced many crossroads and challenges, but the Lord has stood by me and so I continue to follow Him.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my faith by doing what Jesus would have me do. I read the scriptures and pray daily. I love and serve my family. When asked to help others, I offer what service I can.

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

One of the sweetest doctrines of this church is that families can be married forever and always. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to live with my beautiful wife and children for time and all eternity. Because the Priesthood, or authority, of God is on the earth again, couples can enter the walls of the sacred temple and be sealed, eternally bound, to have their marriage endure beyond death. The Lord since the days of Adam and Eve has put man and woman together as families and asked them to replenish the earth. He wants us to enjoy that familial relationship not only here but forever.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

God's people have always looked to prophets for direction. Moses was looked to and admired for thousands of years as a temporal savior for the children of Israel from Egypt. Joseph Smith is very much the same for Mormons today. As God's prophet, Joseph Smith restored the lost doctrines of Christ's ancient church. He led us from a state of confusion about God and his word into a full restoration of truth. We are grateful for his humble prayer and stalwart service that brought us this church today. God the Father and Jesus Christ, the Savior of all mankind, are who we worship in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Show more Show less
