Hi I'm Brian

I'm from Mississippi, I'm serving a mission in Boise, ID, I'm a regular guy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved from utah to mississippi when i was 10. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I love playing golf, football, soccer, basketball and all other sports. I'm currently serving a mission in Boise, Idaho but after my mission I'm planning on joining the military, going to school to be a welder in mississippi, or going to BYU Idaho for i have no clue what right now. I have a loving family that loves me very much and i love them very much also. I was also born into the chuch and am grateful for that.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I'm a Mormon well cause i was born into the church but the main reason why i am a Mormon is because I know that its the true church of god and i know that Joesph Smith seen God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ in a vision that he did bring back the true church that Christ set up while he was on this earth so many years ago and i know that we do have modern revelation through prophets and that Joesph Smith was a true profet and Thomoas S Monso is a true prophet today and i know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of god that Joseph Smith did translated it correctly through God and i know all these things because i have knelt down myself and asked the Lord if these things was true and he told me it was by the Holy Ghost, i didnt see a vision or nothing miraculous happened i just had that feeling of peace and felt the best that i have ever in my life and i just knew or I wouldn't be out on a mission. and if i wasn't a Mormon i dont know where i would be. i know that i would be on my mission inviting others to come unto Christ and helping them come closer to the Lord. I know that the gospel has blessed my life and my family tons and its brought me closer to my family that we all have the same beliefs and since we have the same beliefs it has brought me closer to my Hevenly Father and i know that i can one day return and live with God and Jesus Christ through the sacrifice that Christ did for me so that i can live with them one day and i say that in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

How i live my Faith is by going to church and reading my scriptures and praying to Heavenly Father and asking him if what i learned is true and all. But God knew that we all wasnt gonna be perfect because i know i didn't do that my whole life and its never to late to start back up even if you have had bad things happen in your life because thats why God sent his only begotten son to atone for our sins and died on the cross for our sins so that we can repent so thats how i live my faith is to do my best to return to live with god after i die and to keep his commandments but when i faulter to ask for forgiveness so that i can become clean once more in Gods eyes.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Brian
The Book Of Mormon is another testamant or witness of Jesus Christ and what he done here on this earth. It is just like the Bible it has Prophets of God that take records about the things that God revels to them and a record of thier people. In the Book Of Mormon it starts off with a guy name Nephi and he is the son of a Prophet Lehi who lives in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. and God commanded Lehi to take his family and another family, Ishmael, to leave Jerusalem because it has grown wicked so they leave and they eventually end up in the Americas. When you read the Book Of Mormon you will find out more details on thier trials and tribulations on thier way to the promise land, the americas, and while they are in the promise land. Well after so many years has passed Christ has came and died for us and the last prophet of God writes one of the strongest messages that when you read the Book Of Mormon you need to do and that is Moroni. The Scripture that im talking about is Moroni Chapter 10 verses 3-5 and i can promise you that if you do as Moroni directs in these verses that you will come to know the truth of this church, Joesph Smith, and the Book of Mormon for i have done the same thing and God has awnsered me and i can promise you that he awnsers everyones prayers on his time and in his way and i say all these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Show more Show less
