Hi I'm Braden Scothern

I'm 21, I love music, playing ice hockey, and life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a musician, I could spend all day working on music and not get sick of it! I love to write, play, and record music. The guitar is my favorite! I also enjoy playing ice hockey.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church but I have seen 2 completely different lifestyles while growing up because my parents got divorced when I was very little. I lived with my Mom. But every Friday afternoon I would go to see my Dad. Then I would come home Saturday night. That way I could attend church with her on Sunday. Because of this I have seen what life is like inside and outside of the church and I love how this gospel makes me feel. It makes me happy all the time and I can feel myself growing and becoming the person I want to be because of the many blessings the gospel brings. The church makes me happier than anything! I love everything it provides! I especially love knowing that I can be with my family forever and that I have a Savior and Heavenly Father who love me and everyone else!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in Northern Georgia. I have left my friends, family, hobbies, job, school, and everything for 2 years to be out here in Georgia. As a missionary I do my best to help others see the joys that come with this gospel which is all about not only bringing us happiness in this life, but happiness through eternity. To help others recieve those joys forever, I help people gain more faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Repent. Be baptized by proper and restored priesthood authority. Recieve the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands. And accomplish the most difficult thing of all... endure to the end of life here on Earth. As I strive to help others understand these five points and what our Heavenly Father is offering to all of His children, I am building a stronger personal relationship with God. Having that personal relationship has brought me so much in this life, it will continue to do so, and I want others to have that relationship and happiness that comes with our Saviors restored gospel.
