Hi I'm Alec Brannan

I love dogs, I love the South and I am Forever a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a normal 19 year-old guy serving a mission in South Carolina. I love dogs and I want to train dogs for the police force when I get home. I don't mind working but might as well enjoy what you do. My dad is a Rescue Swimmer for the Coast Guard and has helped mold me into the hardworker I am today. My Mom is a Nurse and without her love and care for me I wouldn't be the person I am today. My mom has saved me from making a lot of mistakes in my life. The Restored Gospel has kept me on the right path and my mom is the one who gave me that knowledge. I'm not extraordinary in anyway but I hope that I can measure up to something greater in the future. I'd rather shoot high than to low.

Why I am a Mormon

God told me that it is true and I don't argue with God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just doing what the Lord has commanded. I just do my best in all that I can do because actions speak louder than words but I'm always striving to do better.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Alec Brannan
If you define the rest of Christainity as a cult then yes. We follow the Savior, Jesus Christ. We follow his teachings just like other Christians but God has revealed more throught prophets and people try to just brush it off by calling us a cult but I testify that this Church is true. Don't listen to labels but listen to the doctrine and ask God yourself and I know he will tell you the same thing He has told me. This is the only true church on the earth today. Test the Lord and ask. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Alec Brannan
We as Missionaries proseylte to share the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have been told of God that it is true and we want to share the joy we have recieved from it with everyone. God loves all of us and since this is His church so do we. I want everyone to know what God has told me and I find no greater joy then spreading it. Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Alec Brannan
Jesus Christ is the ultimate example for all of us. Jesus Christ Himself walked over 80 miles to be baptized by the right Authority of God. He didn't go to anybody so if you've been baptized ask yourself, " Did that person get their authority from God". How do you know? The Church of Jesus Christ can trace the authority all the way back to the Savior. I know the Auhtority was restored into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This truly is His Church. Don't take my word on that but go directly to God and I know He will tell you. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Alec Brannan
The body is one of God's greatest gifts to us. We need to treat it with respect by not polluting it with harmful substances and taking care of it. If you were given a really nice car to drive, you wouldn't spray paint it or pump destructive substances into it. Staying away from harmful things don't restrict us but set us free. Are you truly free? Show more Show less
