Hi I'm Brian

I'm a Mormon. I have found that by following the simple commandments I am blessed with the greatest peace and harmony to my life.

About Me

I am a geological technician. I have the privilege of seeing many diverse parts of the world. Currently I am living and working in Guyana, but I was born in Canada. I am a husband, and a father. Serving in the Church brings some of the greatest joy to my life. Currently I am a Gospel Doctrine teacher. I love having the opportunity to study each week to prepare for my lesson. I love being a father, my children bring such joy to my heart. I am a very optimistic person, I have found that this helps me endure trials that do come to each of us.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, I discovered that the Book of Mormon was true. growing up in a family that practiced no religion, I always felt there was something missing. I was extremely curious about Jesus and wanted to know more, but as a small boy i really did not know where to turn. I used to read a children's Bible that my parents had bought for us along with hundred of other science and educational books. When I was 15 I became friends with an odd boy from school. He was not like the other teenagers who were quite wild. We found we shared a lot of values and soon became friends. I discovered that he was a Mormon. I did not know anything about this religion but was willing to learn more. Over time I came to learn about the Gospel. My friends mother says I learned the Gospel through osmosis. eventually I began to study the Book of Mormon in order to discover if it was true, I was not getting much feed back from God. Then I decided to act on faith. I decided that I had felt the spirit enough to know that the Gospel was true, and I would get baptized unless God told me otherwise. It was then that I received my answer. I knew it was true. I knew that I had to live the Gospel the rest of my life. getting baptized was the happiest day of my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. Each day brings new challenges. I find that by setting large goals, then breaking them down to smaller goals, and then even smaller goals and tasks I can accomplish great things. I know I fail to live up to all my goals, but trying is the most important part, and 'getting back on the horse' so to speak.
