Hi I'm Brian

I'm a Mormon. I am a happily married father of four from Chandler, Arizona.

About Me

I work in marketing for a chemical management services company. I enjoy coaching my children in various sports and spending time with them. As a family, we like to go camping, fishing, hiking, to museums and to the zoo. I enjoy reading books of all types.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To have been raised a Mormon has been a great blessing to me. For me, the gospel of Jesus Christ answers many important questions, such as where we came from, why we exist and whether or not there is life after death. I am thankful to possess a knowledge of the true nature of God and his relationship to man, of the eternal nature of families, and of how I can live my life in the best way possible. The blessings that I have received from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are immeasurable. I gain strength from knowing that through faith and prayer, I can receive help to bear the burdens of life with courage and overcome the challenges that I face. I am thankful to know that true happiness and purpose in life does not come from selfish pursuits, but rather from hard work, humility and selfless sacrifice for others. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides a perspective upon life that helps me to have peace, understanding, hope, joy and courage to be a better husband, father, son, brother, leader, friend and citizen of my community.

How I live my faith

Our family strives to live each day in a way that is consistent with our beliefs. We strive to treat others with kindness, respect and love. We strive to have greater patience with our challenges. We pray each morning and evening as family. We also read from the Bible, Book of Mormon, and other scriptures to remember the important lessons and scriptural insights that come from study of the scriptures. Each Sunday, we strive to attend church and take the sacrament, covenanting with God that we will strive to remember him and keep his commandments. Personally, I try strive to be honest in my daily activities, to honor my wife and children and to serve my fellow men, whether it be helping within the community or participating in a church service project.
