Hi I'm Brandon

I'm an outdoorsman, I love music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fairly well-rounded person. I have many different interests and do a little bit of everything. I'm just your every day average teenager. I pulled my way through school with A's and B's and hope for the best. I was part of my schools orchestra program where I played viola. I love music and love to have it around me as often as possible. Another part of my love of music is my love of swing dancing. I go every week and just love the thrill of dancing. I also love to cook. Cooking is probably my biggest hobby; I cook as often as i can and try to improve. I also love swimming and water sports. I swim for at least half an hour to an hour a day to keep in shape. I try to be fairly athletic, although at times I would much rather curl up with a good book.. Another one of my big hobbies is service. i like to help people and see the joy in their faces when i help them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I've stuck so far throughout my life. I love the church and plan on sticking with it. It has really helped me to progress through life and develop good traits. It has helped me to keep up high standards and taught me how to look positively at life. Through all of the service and great people I've met, it's realy been a good experience. I've made a ton of friends and love them all. The people in my ward are like a second family to me and I would do anything for them. I just love the church and all it's done for me. I know that the lord answers my prayers and he has before. I try to talk to him as often as possible, most people look at me strange when I say he's one of my best friends, but he is. I know that the scriptures and the Book of Mormon is true, and that they are the word of god. I know that we have a living prophet today who teaches us and instructs us in our times of need. I love listening to him speak, knowing that he's giving me a message from god.

How I live my faith

I'm an active member in my ward and try to be involved as much as I can. Being a youth, I love all the fun activities that they do. We meet every wednesday for Mutual where I get to hang out with all of the other young men and women and have a great time. We'll play games and hang out and have some really great bonding time. I've made some of my best friends through the church. another cool thing is I was part of my Stake Youth Council. They let the youth come up with the activities for the youth. I love all the interaction i get with the other members and all the great bonds we get to form. I also love reading the scriptures. I know it can get monotonous at times, but I cannot count the number of times that I have read something that has been applicable to a situation at that time in my life. I know that we were given scriptures for a reason, and I make sure to have them as a part of my life.
