Hi I'm Brent

I grew up in Montana, and I have lived in Utah, Seattle, and Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty normal guy, married to a Wonderful wife, and we have 5 children. My olderst son plays on the high school football team, and most of my children love All Sports. My wife loves sports as well, and when we dated, we played golf together, and participated in many outdoor activities. We love to camp, hike, and play board games as a family. I love the mountains, obviously growing up in Montana. I love to fish, and I love to Bow hunt. My daughters love to play musical instruments, and they All love to sing. One of the things that attracted me to my wife, was the fact that she plays the piano, and sings wonderfully. I love working with the youth of the church, and I have worked in the Scouting program. I am an Eagle Scout, and my 15 year old son got his Eagle Scout award this year as well. I work for a company that has a software program that helps children learn English, and helps them Read better. It is very rewarding being able to watch students gain confidence in themselves as they are learning English. I love my family very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many different reasons. My father, who was a Methodist most of his life, joined the Mormon Church when I was a young boy. I remember going to church with my family and I loved having Family night on Monday nights. I remember my mom and dad being Excellent Parents. they Always supported me in whatever I did in my life. Every sporting event, or Band concert, or problem I may have had,,, I remember my father and mother being there for me. As I have grown up and gotten married myself, I know that the reason they were such good and Loving parents to me, was because they lived the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As I have gone through many trials and adversity in my life, I can honestly say that I have been able to Endure and overcome these trials, because of my Faith in Jesus Christ, and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. As I look at my life over the years, I have had many ups and downs, and I can confidantly say that I am grateful for my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. Knowing the Gospel thruths, and feeling in my heart that this Gospel is true, has helped me be a better Husband and Father. I'm not perfect in any way, but I do know that my faith and the Love I have for my family, is rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My testimony is strong because 1) the Gospel makes sense to me. 2) I have read, studied, and prayed about the Veracity of the Book of Mormon, and I have felt the holy Spirit testify to me that it is True. 3) I have witnessed miracles in my life, as I have lived the Gospel and kept the commandments of God. 4) As I live my religion, and practice what I preach, I see the Lord's Blessings come to me and my family. These are some of the reasons that I am a Mormon. I am so Grateful for my membership in this church, and hope that you can find the same Happiness that I have found.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am an extremely Busy person, with many things going on in my life. I have 5 active children that are involved in many activities. I have a calling in the church that allows me to work with the Leadership of the Church at a local level. My calling also allows me to work with the youth of the church, which I love Tremendously !!! I had the opportunity to plan, and be in charge of a local "Spring Formal Dance", ( or "Mormon Prom", which many people call it ), which included Many local leaders in vaious Stakes and Wards. We had about 900 high school students attend our dance, which was put together as an alternative to the typical High School Prom dances. The Standards at our Dance were much higher. For example, we played Great music that was free of Vulgar language, and suggestive lyrics. The girls wore Modest dresses, and the guys had to wear a Suit, and had to be clean cut. The Refreshments were Amazing, and the couples were able to have Professional pictures taken with Many different Backdrops. The price to attend the dance was $10.00 per couple. The dance was absolutely Fantastic, and it was Amazing hearing the comments from the high school students who attended. They Loved being able to bring their dates to a Safe, Fun environment, where the spirit of the Lord was still able to be felt. I love being able to provide activities for our young men and women, where there is a feeling of Fun, and Saftey, and still know that the youth are living the Standards of our Heavenly Father. Whether it is a Dance, a Basketball game, or a Softball tournamet, watching our young men and women paricipate in different activites is very rewarding for me. I am grateful for the opportunity that I have to work with the youth of our church. It is Awesome to teach them true principles of Honesty and Virtue, so that some day they might be wonderful Husbands, wives, and Parents.
