Hi I'm Braden

I'm from the Washington D.C. area. I like sakteboarding and reggae music... and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Northern Virginia area just outside of Washington D.C. I'm a son to two wonderfull parents and a brother to four sibblings. I skateboard, snowboard, play guitar and sing a bit as well. I like to be positive with whatever comes my way because I believe life should be fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My parents raised me with faith and values. They taught me to make good choices that will keep me free in life to do what brings happiness. I must have been hard of hearing because for awhile I was learning from making my own mistakes. It all changed when I found a copy of The Book of Mormon in my work truck. I decided to read it and find out if what I had been taught all my life was true. I had never been a reader in my life, I would pick up a book only to to put it down moments later, it was boring to me it never grabed my attention, but this time it was different. I cant say I understood every thing i was reading in the book but I couldn't put it down. I would find ways to extend my luch break and read it for hours. I felt different when I read The Book of Mormon I felt loved, I felt hope, I felt the truth and I understood my purpose in life. My testimony of Christ and this, his church, is the center of my life, it is why I am happy.

How I live my faith

I chose to serve a 2 year mission so that I could share the things that I have come to know bring happiness. On a mission you dedicate all your time and attention to sharing the message that Christ speaks today, through a living prophet. Its been the most amazing blessing to help people make changes in thier lives that bring them closer to Christ. I try to listen every day for the wisperings of the spirit to lead me to oppritunities that I can help those in need because serving others brings a great joy into my life.

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Mormonism actually has alot less to do with mormon and has everything to do with Christ. Mormons are Christians. The reason we have people like Mormon, Moroni and Joseph Smith in our religion is the same reason the Christian world has people like Adam, Noah, Moses, Abraham, Peter, James and John. The Belief is that God spoke to these Old and New Testiment prophets and apostles. Our belief is that he SPOKE to these prophets of old and that he SPEAKS to a prophet and twelve apostles today, that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Show more Show less
