Hi I'm Brock

I'm a college student. I love meeting new people and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 22 years old and I'm currently a student in Provo, Utah. I was born and raised in Orange County, California, but in 2004 my family and I moved to Utah. I'm the second oldest of 6 kids and I love them all. I enjoy anything from meeting new people and discovering other peoples opinions on a variety of topics to outdoor and physical activities that are fun, exciting and keep me in shape. The reason I really enjoy meeting new people is because diversity makes me a better person. Learning from other people's experiences helps me understand different cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a part of the LDS church since I was born. I have ancestors that were members of the church when it was first reorganized. I love being a member of the church! The direction and comfort that the church and its teachings offer are inspired. We all are mortals here on this earth. We are subject to phsyical and emotional discomfort and pain. We make errors that we wish we could call back and erase. We are not always the smartest, brightest, boldest or most athletic, but not all that really matters. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers teachings of love, kindness, obedience, discipline, diligence, service and more. We all come imperfect and as we push to make changes, the Lord shows his love towards us and we can become better people. I think these are some of the main reasons of why I am a member of the church. I'm not perfect, but by applying simple ideas I can become a better person and have the hope to live with God and my family once again.

How I live my faith

Where I am attending school the majority of the student body are members of the church. Being part of the church allows opportunities to serve, learn, grow and love those you interact with. I currently am serving as a counselhor to a leader of a small section of the men's organization of the church here at school. For a short term, I am able to serve these men in whatever aspect they are in need of. I don't have all the skill or tact in the world, and neither do all of the leaders that are called in the church, but the Lord has allowed us the chance to build character by serving in these different leadership positions. The church has always been great is recognizing the need of others. There is a great system setup in the church that is called "hometeaching". This system is one in which we care for other members of the church by serving them and making at least one visit to them per month. Doing this allows every member of the church to make friends and really feel that they have someone to turn to when they are in need.
