Hi I'm Brent

I was born and raised in Reno Nevada, I'm a Copier technician, a Historical reinactor,a Father and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a father of six wonderfull children my life tends to be a little hectic. but its those six kids and my dear wife that help hold it all together. I've always been an outdoorsman with a great love of camping. That love has spread to my family as well and we spend alot of time outdoors, as a family. For the last 12 years I have been a part of the Boys Scouts of America. and have helped share my love of its values with the youth I worked with. though it meant being away from my family on some weekends it also taught themthose traits that make it a valuable program.

Why I am a Mormon

The biggest and most powerfull question one can ask is "Why?" the hows and the whats never seem to make much sense unless you know the why involed. As a youth I looked for the "why"s in my life. Why am I here, Why is life so hard? I knew there was a God, someone guideing this life and that there had to be so sort of plan for each of us. but none of them made sense. Most would start me down the road to anwsers but could only take me so far untill I would hit a Why that just could not be anwsered, or just not make any sense. Then I started reading the Book of Mormon. and the anwsers started flowing. the whys came and with them came hope. Hope that this life had a meaning. a purpose. I was not just a mistake of nature. But someone with divine potential, and I knew that God loved me. That was the biggest Why. He loved me so much he was willing to give up his son for me. Together they cared so much for me that they dedicated all they do so I may return. I may not have all the "why"s anwsered yet but I know where they are to be found.

How I live my faith

How I Live My Faith. That question brought up all sort of other questions, How you live your faith is alot like "How you live your life?" Its more then just what you do for your Church. Its what you do in your everyday life. Most of my callings in the Church has been related with the Youth, For over ten years Ive been working with the Young men in various Scouting Activities. It has been a real blessing to me to work with the youth of the Church. With all the craziness of the world around us it is great to know that there still Youth in the world that will stand up to the morals and values the Lord has set forth upon the earth. I have recently been called to be the Ward Mission Leader. My job is to help the members share the news about the restoration of Christs Church and bring them back. The biggest part of my calling is find those who have fallen away from the Church and help them to return. Its been a real blessing to me to be a part of peoples life as they grow closer to the Savior and learn of his love and sacrfice.
