Hi I'm Brad

I am from Washington State, I deliver happiness where ever I go, (actually potato chips). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a statistic, divorced, and remarried, combined my wife and I have seven kids. Many trials we have are self induced, we must learn from them, move on, and be the best we can be.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, I was blessed with wonderful parents, who taught me right from wrong, still we have our free agency. I served a mormon mission in the southern states, as I taught others and through my experences I came to know my Savior and the love he has for each of us, I have felt the Lords' spirit bear testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel, and its prinicples. Even when trials have came my way, I have never doubted this knowledge, or lost faith in my Heavenly Father or his son, Jesus christ. There were times of despare and no hope, it would have been easy to give up, but, with the knowledge of my Saviors' love for me, I pushed through these feelings. The Lord has truly blessed my life, and the life of my family, the lord has great things in store for all of us, if we can just push through the hard times, and realize, that when we are obedient to Gods' commandments, we will have lasting peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

I strive to live each day to its fullest, and make each day better then the last. There are many with anxiety about the future, as we have turmoil all around us. I try to bring out the best in people, and weather at church or work, make it a brighter day for those I assocaite with. When we have the truthfulness of the gospel in our lives, we realize the eternal prespective of things, and our place in it. I am humbled, that the Lord allows me to serve others, and further the work, and help prepare for our Saviors' return. I live my faith by putting one foot in front of the other, when I make mistakes, acknowledge them, ask for forgiveness, learn from it, then take another step.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Brad
Christ suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane, and on the cross, I believe was the most important thing to happen on earth to date, that none of us can even fully realize, we can began to understand his sacrifice as we put the Atonment to use in our own lives, and seek forgiveness for our wrongs, it causes me great pain to realize that some of Christs' suffering were my cause, it would be more harmful then, if we don't choose to seek forgiveness in this life, as Christ has given us a way, to be forgiven, and return to live with him and our Heavenly Father. That is why I believe as 'mormons' we are a happy people, we know our Elder Brother Jesus Christ, and we know Gods full plan for us, that we may return and live with our families for ever. I challenge all those who read this to put the Saviors Atonement to work in their life, and I promise great blessings will come your way, better yet, Our Heavenly Father promises us great blessings.. In this time of much turmoil and uncertainty, the realization that you can be washed clean, through The Atonement of Jesus Christ, and know what Gods full plan and purpose is, will give each of us peace and reassurance of things to come.
