Hi I'm Braden

I'm a college kid. I want a PhD eventually. Mostly though, I want a big happy faith-filled family of my own someday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an undergraduate student working on a mechanical engineering degree. In the summers, I work as a research assistant. I like reading books, going on dates, throwing parties, and hanging out with my 6 brothers, 2 sisters, and awesome parents!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that all of the principles that I learn in this church lead me to a happier life and more satisfaction. Time and time again I've seen that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is perfect in every way, and he wants us to have it all! That's why he speaks even today to prophets and apostles, just like he did in the Bible. He wants us to know the right way, and when we simply follow that "straight and narrow path" that he outlines, everything works out for our good! We can go through life with complete assurance that every trial is meant to help us grow and our loving Heavenly Father is completely aware of our situation. This church and my faith in Jesus Christ have brought me so much happiness, I could never leave, and I never will. I'll live true to the end...and even then I'll still be true.

How I live my faith

I try my best to make my faith a part of absolutely everything I do. I try to make my relationships more uplifting and Christlike. My local congregation of college-aged kids gives me lots of opportunities to serve my peers, lift up others, comfort those who stand in need of comfort, and be helped out in return whenever I need it. Reading the scriptures daily helps me to really feel like I know my Savior and his teachings and I learn more each day. Setting my goals and priorities in life upon the things that I know are important to God help me to put my time and energy into the things that really matter and will bring me the most happiness in this life. I don't know what I would ever do without this Gospel to help me through life. It makes every day full of purpose and gives my life direction and movement.
