Hi I'm Brian

I grew up in San Diego California. I grew up surfing and playing music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love surfing, playing guitar, piano and beach volleyball. I love traveling the world surfing. I love traveling not just for waves but to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people. I went to school and studied accounting. I have worked different jobs doing construction and other things. Now i work as a tax accountant.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a mormon. I know where i came from, why i am here, and where i am going. The teachings of the church have given me an eternal perspective on things. Hardships that come are not as hard with faith in Jesus Christ. I know the Savior lives and that we can one day live with God because of his sacrifice. In high school i read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and i know that it speaks truth. As i live the church standards joy comes into my life. The rules do not bind me, by keeping the rules i am set free. I have had many great friends and examples in this church. I see their happiness and i desire to become better. The church is not a place for perfect people. It is a place where normal people such as myself try to overcome weaknesses and find joy in life.

How I live my faith

Serving our fellowman is the greatest thing we can do. Some are able to do great humanitarian service abroad. I plan to do big things but for now i focus on doing small things for others everyday and never passing up an opportunity to help. At church i have been in charge of activities as well as teaching lessons. Never paid with money but with many blessings from above.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

The prophet today is Thomas S. Monson. We have the priveledge to be guided by a prophet of God who is in direct communication with God. We have the opportunity to listen to his council on how to better our lives and come closer to the savior in an everchanging world. When i listen to the prophets words i know that he is speaking for God. Show more Show less
