Hi I'm Bryan

I'm a fourth generation Arizona native and second generation Law Enforcement Officer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of eight children and work as a homicide detective. Between work and family I am very busy with many activities. I have a wonderful wife that allows me to dedicate the hours necessary to be successful at my work. I still find the time to spend with my family which is the most important thing to me.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for many generations. Although I was born and raised in the faith I have found it necessary to know for myself if the things I was taught are true. I took the time to read the Bible, and Book of Mormon and asked my Father in Heaven in prayer as to the truth of these things that I had read and received an answer for myself that was based on my personal belief and not that of my parents or other family members. It was important to me to know for myself in order to take the steps in my life that have helped me stay closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ, and have a family that shares my beliefs. I strive daily to choose the right and do things that will help me stay focused on the family and try to follow the example of Jesus Christ in being compassionate with my fellow man. I choose to be "Mormon" because I have studied and prayed to my Father in Heaven who bore witness to me through a comforting and still small voice that this is the true Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am a member of a Ward (congregation) of which I participate without compentation in various callings. I am a Home Teacher which consists of visiting members as well as less active members in their homes and providing them friendship and assistance when needed. I also teach a Sunday School class of Gospel Doctrines that allows me many hours of study and reflectioin in preparation to lead a group discussion of the weekly topics. I also assist with the building maintenance and cleaning with other congregations thoughout the year in effort to keep our meeting house clean and beautiful. These activities that I have been asked to do allow me many opportunities to assist my Ward but also grow personally as I study and share topics that are helpful to me and my family. By participating in my congregation my family also enjoys the joy from service.
