Hi I'm Brad

I am about to be a missionary in Santiago, Chile, I am a student at BYU, I love to play sports, go on adventures, and I'm a mormon

About Me

I just finished my freshman year at BYU in Provo, UT. I love to play any type of sports and being active. I love hiking and going on spontaneous adventures. I am an adrenaline junkie. I hope to travel the world and help other people in need. I love the mountains and the beach. I love life and I am so happy to be living!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have seen how much happiness it has given me. I have felt the lows and the depth of despair in my life. I have been depressed, struggled with anxiety, death, and other hardships and I was angry with God for so long. I struggled with the church and with my beliefs, I was lost. Yet, through faith and a lot of patience and prayer, I got myself out of that despair and I realized that I control my emotions. I had a choice: to remain miserable, or to be happy. Because of those trials I went through, no matter how hard they were, it made me realize my potential that I had. It made me realize that God wants every single one of his children to be happy, and to feel of his love. I live my faith through the and not following the gospel, and I am thankful that I experienced hardships that I went through. I am grateful for the trials because it made me realize how much happiness and joy the gospel brings me. I am Mormon because it is pure happiness. I am Mormon because it is a church not for the perfect, but for the broken and the wounded. I am Mormon because I have Heavenly Father who loves and cares for me and for all of his children.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through having faith and trust in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I live my faith through the small and simple things, such as prayer, serving others, and mostly loving others no matter what. I live my faith through having faith that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me personally. I live my faith through having faith that I can get through any trial through the help of my Heavenly Father and the gospel. I live my faith through having faith in the atonement that we can be forgiven no matter what. I live my faith through having faith that serving others and forgetting about yourself is the way to find happiness and to find yourself along the way. I live my faith through having faith in things I cannot see, but things I have felt in my life, and to rely on those experiences. I live my faith through having faith.
