Hi I'm Braxton

I grew up in Colorado. I love music, snowboarding, and long-boarding. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student, studying Business, Spanish, and Dental, and I love it. I am also the oldest in a family of 3 children. I love my family so much and love spending time with them. My life right now revolves around my studies and work, and even though it's a crazy, busy life, I love it. My favorite hobby is definitely snowboarding, and I go whenever I have a chance in my crazy life. When I was 3 years old my dad started me skiing and snowboarding, and I have loved it ever since. I love being on the mountain and I love the feel of my snowboard when it cuts through snow, it's definitely the best feeling in the world. I also love music. I have grown up with the old rock music. I listen to music in everything I do: studies, work, snowboarding, long-boarding, and in everything I do. I played the guitar in a high school rock band and loved every minute of it. Music is a definitely a huge part of my life. But over all, I love life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, but like everybody else, I needed to know for myself. When I was around 15-16 years old I had a desire to know the truthfulness of this Gospel. So in that insecure moment of my life I decided to study the Book of Mormon and kneel and pray before God. So I did and over time I knew from the Spirit that this is the true Gospel of our Master Jesus Christ. My life has been a good life, and I owe it all to this Gospel and the blessings I receive when I am obedient.

How I live my faith

I have tried to live my Faith to the fullest. I was part of the Boy Scout program through the church and I was able to serve in many service projects and with many other young man. Just recently I was able to serve a mission for 2 years in Honduras. I spent those 2 years preaching this Gospel that has blessed me so much, and it was the best 2 years of my life. I love the people from Honduras and I loved my mission more than anything else I have done in my life. I continue to serve in the church and to my fellow man.
