Hi I'm Bryan Dean

I'm a Husband, Father, Teacher, Coach and a Mormon.

About Me

 I live in Northeast TN with my wife and 4 children and 2 dogs. I teach Middle school students and coach volleyball. I love working with the youth in church too. I served a Mission in Brazil and not a day of my life goes by that I don't remember the people there. I love to do everything with my wife and children. We work, learn, worship and play together as much as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my savior Jesus Christ and am so grateful for the blessings in my life because of the teachings He gave us in the Bible and Book of Mormon. Being a Mormon, I live closer to God, my Father in Heaven, and it makes me a happier person. This church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the same church Jesus established in the bible. I know that by living His teachings I and my family can return to live with Him again some day through His grace, if we do our part.

How I live my faith

The choices I make in daily life hopefully show that I believe in God, my Father, and His son Jesus Christ. By making the small decisions each day to follow Christ and His teachings, I in turn am a happier person and hopefully He can help others through me. The words I say, the books I read, the movies I watch, the music I listen to, the way I treat others hopefully all show that I have faith in God and my Savior Jesus Christ.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Bryan Dean
It is another testimony of Jesus Christ. It, like the Bible, is scripture, or writing of prophets, we use them to learn the Gospel that Jesus established on this earth for us to learn to be happy and return home to God after this life. One of my favorite parts of The Book of Mormon is when Jesus visits its people as a resurrected being. The people feel the prints of the nails and sword and He heals the sick and establishes His church among them. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Bryan Dean
Our Father in Heaven, God. Jesus Christ, our Savior and Brother. The Holy Ghost, who testifies of the truth and helps us make decisions and helps us feel God's love for us. Show more Show less
