Hi I'm Brandon Huffaker

I've lived most of my life in Northern Idaho, I'm just starting college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single 22-year-old guy with my whole life ahead of me still. I recently returned from a two-year mission in Jamaica. My current work is installing stoves. I enjoy reading fantasy novels, shooting, playing games and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to be a Mormon because I feel and believe that this is the truth. I have learned more from this church than anywhere else. I understand this church and I continue to learn even though I have been attending since I was born. The way that I know this is true is from the Spirit of God. I have taken the challenge to put the teachings of God to the test and have learned that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and that he loves each and every one of us no matter our situations. He wants to give us the blessings of heaven and only can when we follow His teachings. The leaders of this church whill never lead me or anyone astray from Christ.

How I live my faith

I am still a person like everyone else in the world. I have a job and I am concerned about my finances; I want to go to school and I am still unsure as to my major. I have doubts like others, but I let the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Spirit of God help influence my decisions. I love to participate in church and always look forward to learning new things. The hardest part is applying those things into my life, especially in the world we live in with it's changing values.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Brandon Huffaker
The Law of Chastity simply is no sexual relations outside of marriage and complete fidelity to one's spouse once married. Chastity includes the following: no adultery, no fornication, no homo-sexual relations, no pornography in any form, no masturbation, no petting, no necking, modesty in dress and grooming, and maintaing uplifting thoughts, words, and actions. It may seem difficult to live, but the blessings of self-control, trust, and a stonger influence from, the Spirit of God are worth it. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Brandon Huffaker
Mormons are not required to serve a mission, however, it is a great honor to do so. Every missionary serves of his own accord Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Brandon Huffaker
Put simply, at testimony is what you know and how you know it. For example, a person in a courtroom setting may testify that that the accused did not commit the crime because they were with the person somewhere else at the time. Just the same, a testimony of the Gospel may be that a person "knows" a teaching or principle or doctrine to be true because they tested it, they prayed about it, they received a confirmation that it was true by the Holy Spirit.
