Hi I'm Bryan

I have an awesome family. I'm a native to Arizona. I love college football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father to my 3 kids and soon to be 4. I married my high school sweetie and we are still madly in love. After running my own business for a few years, I recently returned to the banking industry. I am currently working towards my MBA and I have aspirations of achieving great things outside of the home as well as in my home. From September to January, my Saturdays consist of yelling loud and proud while watching college football.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a believer in Jesus Christ's restored gospel because I have felt the spirit. As a teenager I was faced with many challenging situations. But because I have had great influences of righteousness in my life I chose to follow that which was making those people happy. I wanted to feel what they felt. I wanted my home to be a home of peace and filled with the love of my Savior. I felt the spirit. I accepted it. I embraced it. I chose to live a life that Christ would want me to live, regardless of real world pressures. Today, even though life is still filled with challenges, I seek the comforting spirit of the Holy Ghost. I am at peace with others and my self when I strive to have the pure love of Christ. I love my Savior, I know he lives.

How I live my faith

Over the past few years I have had various opportunities to serve the youth in my local "wards" and participate in the Boy Scout program. One of the most fulfilling ways I have served in my ward is by teaching the young children, ages 4-11, in my ward. They actually taught me much more than I think I ever taught them. Over all, I try hard to be a good person and to follow in the steps of my older brother, Jesus Christ. I know I am far from perfect. But, through his sacrifice for me I know that I can return to live with my Father in Heaven once again. I look forward to the day when I am in heaven with all of my family and friends.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I developed a relationship with my Father in Heaven in a large part due to personal prayer. As we pray each and every day we will begin to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost more abundantly in our life. It was through this wonderful feeling that I began to realize that there really was someone who listened to my prayers and cared enough about them to give me comfort and peace. Over the years I have developed a strong emotional bond to my Heavenly Father. I can feel his guidance in my life as I try to keep the commandments. I know that everybody on earth is a child of our Father in Heaven. I know that we can all get on our knees and speak to him. I know that if we do this, we will grow closer to our living Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
