Hi I'm Brady

I'm a brain tumor survivor and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 26 in December 2009. Throughout the year of 2010, I had a total of three surgeries, a round of radiation treatment, several rounds of chemo-therapy, and changed addresses (across state-borders) four times. Through all of it my love of the gospel of Jesus Christ remained strong. I was also married in July 2010 to my beautiful wife who stayed with me and was very supportive during all of my doctor visits. After a number of address changes in the past year, I finally ended up in Longmont, Colorado and I love it. I work for a technology company and travel about 60% of the time. This could make it difficult to stay true to one's beliefs, but because of the testimony I've been able to build during my lifetime, I'm happy to say that I'm doing fine.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to Mormon parents and was raised in the faith. While I can't say that it has been difficult, it has not exactly been easy either. While I was a youth I failed to realize the blessing of having the gospel in my life and started to stray away from the Church. Luckily I was able to not go too far before realizing the negative impact my choices were having on me and my future. I feel a close bond to my Father in Heaven and to Jesus Christ as well. They have both been a source of strength to me through all of my trials. I can feel their influence each and every day when I make some type of effort to remember them. I know they are real and that their love is real as well. I'm happy to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I recently was asked to participate in the Young Men's organization of the Church. While I don't know exactly what I'll be doing yet, I'm excited to be working with them.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Even though someone may have been baptized already in another Church, we believe that it must done with the correct authority. That authority is called the Priesthood and it has been restored to us in these Latter-Days. Show more Show less
