Hi I'm Brad

I grew up and live in Arizona. I love to play sports, especially rugby, and be outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 8 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. She is my best friend. I served a mission in Kiev, Ukraine, speaking Russian. Recently, I received a Bachelors degree in Accounting from ASU and I am working on passing the CPA exam to become a Certified Public Accountant. I love to play sports, especially rugby. Spending time outdoors with the family, hunting with the brothers and my dad, are some of my favorite things to do.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14 years old my family took a trip to the East coast of the United States. We were able to spend a day in New York and visit the Church history sites, like Joseph Smith's birth place and the log cabin that he grew up in. On a beautiful Spring day, like the experience of Joseph Smith, we walked through the Sacred Grove. My dad asked if I would go a kneel down next to a tree to help us personalize what Joseph Smith must have looked like and how he felt when he came to the Sacred Grove to inquire of the Lord to which church was the true church. I did not receive a vision as Joseph Smith did, but suddenly a warm and peaceful feeling came over me. I may not have received the revelation like Joseph Smith did, but I did receive a witness that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he restored His church on the Earth once again.

How I live my faith

I have the great opportunity to work with the youth of the church, particularly the young men. What awesome youth they are. Their testimonies are so strong and you feel the Spirit every time you are with them. I learn more from them, then they probably learn from me. I have the opportunity to home teach five wonderful families. Their Spirit and testimonies strengthen me every time that I meet with them.
