Hi I'm Brandon Stephens

I love my family, fly-fishing, and all things Sasquatch and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 4 (three beautiful girls and one tough boy) and the husband of a really, really, really beautiful wife (just saying...) My wife and I were High School sweethearts and with the exception of the two years that I spent on my religious mission in Romania, we have been with each other since we were 16. I love all sports (especially fly-fishing) and am currently training in MMA (mixed-martial arts). I played football for Brigham Young University and the The St. Louis Rams. I am a Vice President for an Oil and Gas Engineering Company and absolutely love my job. I love being able to travel around the world and meet all kinds of people.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the happiness the teachings of this gospel give me and my family. The knowledge that we can be with our families after this mortal life ends is the greatest blessing in my life. This blessing has been made possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father's love for us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being myself. I love joking around, laughing and making other people smile. We're here in this life to be happy. I've found that the easiest way to be happy in this life is to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and not take yourself too seriously. It could be because of we share the same maturity levels, but for most of my adult life I have served as a youth leader in our church. It is the single greatest opportunity that I have to influence the future leaders of our world. Since I was a young man, I've always been involved in The Boy Scouts of America. I earned my Eagle Scout when I was 14 and I love helping the youth of our church participate in scouting.
