Hi I'm Brady

I am a graduate student, teacher, husband, and father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I studied accounting and economics in college. This year, my wife and I decided to pack up our two little boys and head back to school so I can pursue a PhD in accounting.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel fortunate to be enjoying a life full of things to learn, challenges to tackle, and relationships to savor. To me, that is the difference between living and just existing--and everything that makes life meaningful is somehow related to Jesus Christ and His restored gospel. The church has been a place to learn Christ's gospel, serve others, be buoyed up by others, and see how Christ's teaching relate to everyday life. This has been my experience as a child and teenager growing up in the church, and continues to hold true in my current roles of husband and father.

How I live my faith

The most basic way I live my faith is by attending Sunday worship services. In my experience, a beautiful thing is that the doctrines and teachings of these services are consistent across geography. I've been to church services in Vernal, Utah; Paris, France; Edmonds, WA, and a score of other places, and the things taught (as well as the general atmosphere) have been consistent. However, true worship is emulation, and trying to emulate the Savior and being more Christlike in my actions is a lifelong quest that involves service and learning. The church has given me the opportunity to serve as an adviser to a Boy Scout group, teach Sunday lessons, and regularly visit fellow church members in their homes. Additionally, the things I learn in church have also helped me as I try to develop attributes to be a better husband and father.
