Hi I'm Brent Smith

Born in Idaho but grew up in California--now living in Utah. I have worked in the construction industry my life. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been an business executive in the construction industry mostly in construction materials such as ready-mixed concrete and asphalt. Negotiating numerous mergers and acquisitions of property and companies has been fun part of my career. I am an instructor for the University of Phoenix for over 20 years teaching courses in business management, marketing and strategic planning. I have five children and 12 grandchildren--and I love them all. There is no greater joy than being surrounded by a loving family. I love spending time with my children and grandchildren. I love languages and love to travel and have been to many parts of the world. I served a mission in Argentina where I learned to love Spanish and the people of South America. I am an avid reader of history and find inspiration in learning about the lives of great people and leaders from around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a mormon family but have gained a firm belief and testimony on my own and I am grateful for the peace I experience in life due to a better understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life. The Church teaches the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and helps us to follow Him. I have learned so much from my activity and membership in the church. It is the foundation of my life and has given me much peace and joy. Being a member of the Church and having the contstant nourishment of regular activity by attending and being involved in all the activities is a blessing in my life and in the life of my family.

How I live my faith

I believe the greatest expression of my faith is demonstrated with the service I can give to others espeically those immediately around--my family, neighbors, friends and associates. It is in practicing that we find joy--not just talking about it.

What is being a Mormon like?

Brent Smith
Being a Mormon is like being connected to the eternities with an understanding of where we came from, why we are here and where we are going. Mormonism answers the quesitions of life and gives purpose, meaning and understanding to all the challenges and joys of life. Show more Show less
