Hi I'm Brendan Russell

I love to watch movies, I'm an avid reader, I Love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived all across the United States, and I love the diversity of the US and I truly love the south most of all. I went to High School in South Carolina and loved it. I made a lot of friends and had a great time right after I finished High School we moved to Tennessee, and the one thing that I truly realized was the same no matter what part of the country I was in was the Curch of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. When I move its not like im losing all my friends that I know and love, but it is the chance to get to know even more people and have that many more friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church, I always wanted to belive that it was true it sounded good and constantly felt good but how could I know if it was actually true and not just a good idea? So when I was at college I was talking to a friend about the church and about the Book of Mormon and what it talked about and she didn't belive me. so that night I went to my dorm room and knelt down in prayer. I really wanted to know if the things I had told my friend were true because if they were I realized that I needed to make some changes and truly become what christ wants me to be instead of trying to figure out everything on my own. That night I recived an answer to my prayer, and now I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet called from God to once again reveal what God wants us to do just like in Old Testiment times.

How I live my faith

Right now Im serving a mission in Colorado, and it is a great experiance to be able to see how the teachings of Jesus Christ can make a differance in peoples lives and how when I work my hardest to help as many people as I can that is when I feel Gods love for his children the most and that is when I know that I am really trying to be a diciple of Jesus Christ and that is the best way that I Know how to live my faith.
