Hi I'm Brock
I'm an artist. I'm a writer. I'm a husband and father. I'm a Mormon.
I'm a husband, father, writer, comic creator and eater of breakfast at dinner time. I'm a Mormon.
I was born into the church, but there came a time in my life when I didn't know which way was up. Was God real? Or was He just an idea? I'd always been a believer, but there are certain promises the Book of Mormon makes about "knowing the truth of all things" that just weren't being fulfilled. Still, even in my doubt, I didn't give up. I kept praying and hoping. Finally, when I least expected it, God heard my prayer and I had an experience that has stayed with me and defined my life and its purpose ever since. I felt knowledge pour itself into me. I knew with no doubt whatsoever that God is very real. I felt the warmth of His love not only for me, but for everyone. And I knew that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is his church. That's the kind of knowledge that stays with you and that you don't forget. Not ever. I'm a Mormon because I sought truth and I found it.
Living my faith is a daily and minute-by-minute exercise for me. With Christ as my example, I know that harsh words and thoughts towards others are unproductive and hurt not only those around me, but myself as well. I think being polite counts for a lot and that it's essential to always be grateful. Smiles are the greatest favor you can ever give a person. I look for opportunities to help and serve others, both in my community and at church. I'm not a teacher by trade, but I love the opportunities the church gives me to instruct both children and adults. I think the greatest way to live my faith is to forgive. When I think of Christ, that quality supersedes all others for me. I do my best to not be offended and to always try to see where the other person is coming from.
