Hi I'm Branden Heath

I have lived in Washington almost my whole life and I love the outdoors. I love this church, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a person who loves anything that includes physical activity or anything that will push me to my limit is definatly a hobbie. I enjoy playing Football, Basketball, Tennis, and I just recently finished my first tri-athalon. I play guitar, piano, and ukulele, with just about any genre of music. I Attended BYU-I for two semesters studying Exercise Science. Now I am serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Fortaleza Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

My reason for joining this church is simple. The restored Gosple is God's plan of happiness. Everything in our church is based on returning to our loving Heavenly Father with our families in heaven. Jesus Christ, our brother, was sent to earth to be our savior. He suffered for the sins of everyone out of pure love, so that we would have the chance to repent of our sins and be clean from our mistakes. We know this by reading in the Bible, and also the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another Testament that Jesus Christ lived and loves everyone. This amazing book was passed from prophet to prophet until Joseph Smith received it and translated the book so we could read and gain a knowledge of the truth within. I know this is true because I have studied with an open mind and sincerly prayed with a humble heart to God about the things I have read and been taught. God has told me through the Holy Ghost, a feeling of comfort and joy, that these are true. And I know that God loves and knows each and everyone of us. That is why he has given us Prophets living today, to give us guidance and council from God to better our lives. I know God will manifest the truth of our church and our teachings if you ask Him with a sincere heart and real intent on wanting to find the truth.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Teaching the people of Fortaleza Brazil for two years. I also served as a Sunday school teacher for about a year which was so much fun, and I learned a lot from teaching the youth.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Branden Heath
The Book of Mormon is a book of stories and prophecies written by ancient Prophets, before Christ and after. It was written so that we could learn from our ancestors, in preparation for the Second Coming of our Savior Jesus Christ. As well as it was written by prophets, it was also translated by a prophet so that we are able to read and utilize its teachings. I know this book is true. I have read it, and asked God if it is true. With a feeling of fullness and joy in my heart, I know that this book is true. Show more Show less
