Hi I'm Brandon

I'm a father and husband. I am a pilot. I travel a lot, but my favorite destination is always home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a husband to a beautiful and talented wife. I am the father of two wonderful children. While I sometimes am sad to see time pass so quickly, I love to watch my children grow and discover the world around them. I work as a pilot. Everyday brings different views, experiences and challenges. It's amazing to be able to see and appreciate the beauty of the earth from such a unique vantage point. It helps me to realize that we have a divine creator. When I get some free time at home I enjoy amateur radio aka ham radio. It is a hobby that allows me to continue to learn and further explore the world by meeting others on the air. I also like to garden. We've found that as a family it gives us something to work on together. We enjoy the fruits of our labors which are everything from tomatoes and salsa to berries and jam.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They taught me the beliefs of the church as I grew. Once I was older, I learned for myself by reading and praying that the Book of Mormon was true and translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church restored by His prophet on the earth. The Gospel gives me direction and purpose along with comfort and peace in a world of tumult and troubles. I understand who I am, where I came from, and where I am going. Through the ordinances of the Gospel I know I can live forever with my family. We are sealed together so that we will be a family not just here on earth but in the life hereafter.

How I live my faith

I serve as a Family History Consultant in our local congregation. I help familes find out who their ancestors are. This brings a feeling of connectiveness to those who have gone before us. It also allows us to serve those of our family who have died by performing saving ordinaces on their behalf in temples. This gives everyone a chance to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ, even those who were born long ago and didn't have a chance while on this earth to learn of His truths. To me this shows the love our Heavenly Father has for each one of His children. He cares for all of us, no matter who we are or where we live.
