Hi I'm Brady

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I don't really like "About Me" questions. I tell myself I like doing things I don't really like but are good for me. I feel like everything I've done in life has led me to where I am today. I am married to an awesome wife who is my best friend, we've been through SO much together. We have two children who give me a tangible reason to love every day even a little bit more. I am an Executive Producer and partner in a production company. Can you call that a job? I call it just another thing I love doing. If you ski, rock climb, road bike, read copiously, wakeboard, play the wii like a 4 yr old, hobble across various race finish lines, wish you played more yard darts, miss fry sauce, rely on your smart friends to introduce you to your next favorite band (and yes Pandora is a legitimate friend), and were nearly electrocuted before the age of 8 then it's a good chance we are twins.

Why I am a Mormon

There are some things you just know are right intuitively. I've always known that it was right to be kind, charitable, honest, and basically a virtuous person. But to me that didn't mean that by default Jesus Christ was our Savior. The way I know that is true is because I've felt it. In a way that if I were to see God one day and try and deny all those times he's inspired me or helped he would just look at me like I was crazy and I would feel like a liar. That's the best way I can explain it. And that means Jesus is still alive to this day and that there is a plan for all of us to put all our hard work and kind deeds to good use one day as we look back on a life well lived along with our Savior Jesus Christ and he says - "You did a good job, now let's get to work making you even better." And that will be the same for everyone. So I am trying to live a good life by learning as much as I can, being humble, and caring about others. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My take is that we're all in this together. I never understood why people needed to spend any time at all cutting each other down for what they believe. Recently I searched out and found Austin's Interfaith group where people of all faiths get together to discuss and serve alongside each other. Life has never been the same I must say. I always love meeting people of other religions and various walks of life so we can share life experiences, insights we've gained, and lessons we've learned. One of my favorite quotes is from a Catholic Bishop I interviewed, he said "There is enough pain in the world, don't add to it." In the end we have alot more in common then we realize. I live my faith by adhering faithfully to what I believe is right and working with others in the community to make a difference in everyone's life.
