Hi I'm Brett

I grew up in a wonderful family of seven kids and I'm now a proud father of four of my own. I'm a software engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am very fortunate to come from a great family with a great legacy for me to follow. My own family, especially my wife, help me to keep the proper perspective in life as to what is really important. Like many others recently, I have struggled know where path lies. I think trials and struggles mold who you are. I am currently going back to school to finish a degree on a field that I enjoy. Some of the work that I currently doing for a living involves web application development and design. I am also fortunate to work for a residential appraiser that is going through his own struggles with a special needs son.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the values and teachings that are taught are those that my Father in Heaven would want me to be a part of and profess as the pathway to happiness. Like most other Mormons (especially those that have grown up as Mormons), I have had to come to terms with the possibility that some other church or religion could provide the same teachings that could ring as true to me. If there is another church or religion out there that will provide the same peace and comfort that being a Mormon gives me, God has yet to manifest it to me.

How I live my faith

I think the great joys that being a Mormon provides is more ways to serve than one can possibly think of on your own. I consider being a part of the Scouting organization, in which Mormons strongly promote, as a primary shaper of any positive characteristics that I currently have. I have enjoyed various service related activities through being a Mormon that I can always fall back on as positive memories. Such memories bring me peace when I am running into difficulties in my life. Of course, there is always more service to do now and memories to create as I write this.
