Hi I'm Brett

I am a College student from Arizona studying to be an Air Traffic Controller. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single father of 2 kids (ages 4 and 2). I love aviation, sports, outdoors, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, the beach, or any fun activity with good company. I am also a college student, and working part time.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, however all of my extended family are not members. My mothers side of the family are all Catholic and my fathers side are all Jewish. My mom and her immediate family became converted to the gospel in her teenage years. Growing up in the church in CA, there are not a lot of members. Since i was young, my mother has instilled in me the importance of having a testimony and living my religion. As i have gotten older, and been through my own trials, i have come to realize that the only thing that has gotten me through is my testimony of Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father and the Holy Ghost. Through them, all things are possible and life's challenges become a great stepping stone on my path to return home to our Father in Heaven. I know, that we often talk to God, in prayer for many things. I have come to learn that his answers to us can be found in many ways, first of which are the scriptures. I know that is the reason why the have been preserved on this earth and saved for us, to have a way to have direct communication with the Lord. I know that Heavenly Father also speaks to us through his prophets and other priesthood leaders. I have a testimony that the church is true, and that by doing the simple things (keeping the commandments, reading scriptures, praying, etc...) that we will find the happiness that we sometimes feel is missing from our lives!

How I live my faith

I live my faith in a number of ways. First and foremost is by doing the basic principles that we are taught from our youth. To pray to our heavenly father every morning and night and before meals. I read my scriptures every day. I attend church every Sunday and take the sacrament. I do my home teaching, where i visit families which have been assigned to me and my home teaching companion. We teach them a message at least once a month, generally this message can be found in the Ensign. We try to tailor that message to the individual family by what the spirit leads us to tell them. We help our families if they have any struggles and try to support them in any way possible. I attend an Institute class at my college. I learn more about the gospel and its principles through the Holy Spirit testifying to me, in my heart, that the things i am hearing/ learning are true doctrine.
