Hi I'm Brent.

I'm a computer scientist. I'm a wannabe comedian. I sing my sons opera music at bedtime and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I earned an English degree from Brigham Young University, but decided to be a computer scientist instead. I am married and have two sons (one big and one little). I love business, creating cool stuff, and sports (particularly volleyball, football, and basketball).

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised in the Church, I still had to learn for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was Jesus' church. I remember when I was about 10 years old, I participated in a program at church that included me singing the song "I Wonder When He Comes Again". As the choir and I sang this song I listened to the words: I wonder, when he comes again, Will herald angels sing? Will earth be white with drifted snow, Or will the world know spring? I wonder if one star will shine Far brighter than the rest; Will daylight stay the whole night through? Will songbirds leave their nests? I’m sure he’ll call his little ones Together ’round his knee, Because he said in days gone by, “Suffer them to come to me.” Even at 10 years old, I knew that Jesus loved me and that He was going to come again and that the teachings I had been taught were true. Tears filled my eyes and my heart was filled with love. Almost 20 years later I remember those exact feelings because from time to time I am blessed with the exact same feelings when I hear my sons pray or I sing a spiritual song or I hear the testimony of another member of the church.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church I have had many opportunities to serve others. I was a missionary in France and learned to love the people there and to help them in any way that I could--particularly by teaching them about Jesus and His love for them. I have served as a Boy Scout leader, a Sunday School president, a teacher for the toddlers, and more. Each day I try to do something nice for someone or try to make someone smile. I do this to share the happiness I feel knowing that I am a child of God and that He loves me.
