Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Sandy Utah. I recently got married. My life is awesome because...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn and grow. I love to play volleyball and basketball and four square. I attended college for a semester and working on an accounting degree. I am the youngest of 5 children. I'm a missionary in the Iowa Des Moines Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. I had to be converted myself. I love this gospel and I know 100% that it is the true gospel of Jesus Christ restored in this time. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet that restored the church that Jesus Christ himself set up. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the father and his son Jesus Christ. There is one God and I know that there showed be but one way to return to him. My childhood was not easy in anyway. We had family problems. My Parents got divorced when i was 10 years old. It was hard on my family and i found peace in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I wouldn't change that experience for the world. I'm love Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior. He made it possible for me to return to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I know this to be true so much, that I giving 2 years of my life in service of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I go around preaching the gospel to anyone I come in contact with and will here. I strive to exercise my faith in Jesus Christ by trying to be like him and showing love for others around me, because charity is the pure love of Christ. I read the Book Of Mormon everyday to find out what God has asked me to do.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

When Christ was on the Earth he set up his church with 12 Apostles. Today The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's church restored on the earth once more. Christ restored his church through the prophet Joseph Smith. It was revealed to him that there needed to be 12 apostles for the foundation of the Church. This church is built upon that same foundation of apostles and prophets as was established in New Testament times. Show more Show less
