Hi I'm Brock Trejo

I am a past professional soccer player, a future doctor and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 28 year old medical student residing in central Ohio. I am married to an awesome girl and I have two darling daughters. I was a collegiate and professional soccer player at one point but then discovered I was meant to be a doctor all along. I have a wide range of interests that include my family, reading like a fiend, playing the guitar and multiple athletic ventures. I am planning on becoming a family doctor in the rural northwest and taking good care of my community.

Why I am a Mormon

One reason I am a Mormon is because the theology is so rich. The cannon of the church includes: The Old and New Testament, The Book of Mormon, The Pearl of Great Price and The Doctrine of Covenants. The combination of these 5 texts has empowered me to understand my nature, my purpose and my ultimate goals. I have read all of them meticulously and they speak to me as a resonant voice of divine revelation. I have attempted to pattern my life after the example of my Savior Jesus Christ, and in this way of life have discovered great calm and peace within myself and within my relationships. I believe these texts to be a convincing witness of God's existence, concern and surpassing love for his creations. I believe Mormonism is chiefly concerned with discovering the truth of all things. The Book of Mormon states that "by the power of the Holy Ghost you may know the truth of all things." I believe, circumstantially we are all obligated to move toward the visible light. As we make conscious decisions to move towards good things, master our appetites and seek out truth we can't help but move closer to light and truth. Mormonism has taught me that at all costs I must be honest with the true state of my feelings and allow my feelings to navigate the world and all its complexities. I have found my "impressions" and "feelings" to predictably teach me in broad strokes what behavior I should engage and what behavior I should avoid. I believe the "Holy Ghost" has taught me, as it can teach all, the spirit of truth in all things they do. Mormonism and my missionary service have brought the significant portion of all good things in my life. My devotion to its tenets has repeatedly ended in miracles that include: my wife, my career and my personal development.

How I live my faith

I attend weekly services and enjoy the camaraderie and wisdom of the different worship and instructional services. I also work with the young men in our congregation. I am heavily involved with the scouting organization and planning different events for our youth. I served a mission in southwest Florida and am a fluent spanish speaker as a result of that experience. I still very much enjoy theological and philosophical conversations as I regularly visit with muslims, atheists, Jews and other Christians. I look forward to discussing politics and religion with anyone willing, both my favorite topics.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

Brock Trejo
Probably the most important question we can ask ourselves now is "whether or not there is an afterlife?" We believe decidedly that there is and everything that has to do with this mortal experience hinges on the reality of an afterlife. We do believe in a resurrected state and that the body is a necessary and glorious aspect of the afterlife. There actually exists very little revelation on the details of the afterlife, but we believe it involves the pursuit of perfection and the eternal themes of family, love and righteousness.
