Hi I'm Brennan Jensen

I love spots, the outdoors, and going on crazy adventures. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho and loved every minute of it! I love all sports, but snowboarding is my passion! Being atop a white snow covered playground is the best way to spend a cold december weekend. I enjoy the outdoors and taking in all of God's wonderful creations. There are so many amazing sights, sounds, and smells! I love how when I'm outdoors I forget about the worries of the world and can concentrate on the things of greater importance. In our world it is easy to get caught in the "thick of thin things". Getting some fresh air helps me relax and I feel closest to my Father in Heaven when I'm out there. I love music and have spent plenty of time jamming on the guitar! I have recently returned from serving as missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Oklahoma, Tulsa mission. I loved it! Being a missionary was one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done, I had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people I wouldn't have otherwise met and got to share my beliefs with them about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Im mormon because I love the Savior and want to be the kind of person people associate with a follower of Christ. In this church I have found just how to be this kind of person. I believe that this is God's kingdom on earth, with all the keys and authority restored through the prophet Joseph Smith needed for salvation. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book and through divine revelation Joseph Smith was able to translate the book. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today who was called of God and that is Thomas S. Monson. He is called of God and receives divine inspiration daily. I know that Christ died to atone for all of us, Me and you alike. He knows all things and is here to help us if we but ask in faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I act. Anyone can go to church on Sunday and say that they are Christian. I believe that the things we do between Sundays are what let people know we believe in and worship Jesus Christ. The way we handle the daily grind of life can show a lot about how much the savior is in our lives. Being able to rely on him through my hard times, as well as the good ones, has made the worries of my life melt away. The Savior taught us to love and serve our neighbor. When asked who our neighbor was, he gave the brilliant parable of the Good Samaritan. In this story we are taught to love and serve everyone around us, including those who hate us. By constant study and application of the Scriptures I have been able to put to practice the teachings of our Savior and it has made all the difference. I am happier and look at life with a positive attitude knowing that as I lose myself in helping others I will find the most happiness and fulfillment in life.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Brennan Jensen
I know that there has to be something greater then this by exploring the wonderful planet we have been given. As I continue to spend my time in the outdoors I am filled with a peace and love that comes from nowhere else. I know that a Heavenly Father created this earth for our benefit and that He is watchful of all of us. All of the magnificent sights, sounds, and smells didn't just happen by chance. There is a bigger plan to all of this and it is our job to find out what that plan is. As i study the words of prophets and ponder their meaning in my life I know that there is a God and that he loves each of us unconditionally. Show more Show less
