Hi I'm Brandon

I love to Sing and I love to Eat (but not at the same time!). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a senior in High School, and Music is my life. I have been involved in almost every type of performing arts. I started playing Piano when I was in second grade, and picked up the French Horn when I was 10. I also love to sing. I am in 3 choirs at school, and another group outside of school called LIGHT Entertainment Co, which has been a huge blessing in my life. I have performed in the musical Les Miserables School Edition, as Javert. I love to write music, make covers of my favorite songs, and perform in general!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a Latter Day Saint family and grew up in the church. It is something I have always done, and has been a consistent part of my life. As a child I loved to sing in primary and to listen to the stories of the Book of Mormon, and I never really doubted what I was taught. It was unknown to me that I didn't have my own testimony, and I always feel like I knew for myself that the gospel was true. But after I took the summer after my freshman year to read the Book of Mormon cover to cover for myself, I realized just how much I LOVE the gospel. This was pivotal in the fact that I was just getting into High School. I know with all of my heart that my life in high school would have been a lot different had I not had my own testimony of the truth of the Mormon Religion. Through the church I had gained a group of friends who loved each other, and protected each other from the evils ever-present at high school. They raised me up and pushed me to do my best and to always live up to my standards. Having the Light of the gospel, and the guidance of the spirit helped me avoid bad situations, get out of unhealthy relationships, and find the activities and ways I could best invest in myself, and express my love for my Savior. I am a Mormon because as a member of this religion I will never be alone. I have a wonderful group of friends to look out for me, awesome teachers and leaders who I know I can call to at any time for help. I know that I can be with my family for eternity. And most importantly, I know my savior. He is always here for me, and I can turn to him at any time for guidance, support, and comfort.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite scriptures is D&C 25:12, "The Song of the Righteous is a prayer unto me". I love to show my testimony through music. I am in a group called LIGHT Entertainment Company who's mission is to spread the love of Christ through our performances. Really, this group has changed my life. Each cast member has a testimony and a love of the gospel, and a desire to really help other people come to know it for themselves. Being a part of it has helped me to understand a different side of performing, a side that doesn't just entertain, but can actually change people's lives through the assistance of the spirit that comes to testify of what we sing about. At school, I have it easy because of the friends I have been blessed with. I am surrounded be people that want to build others up, and constantly improve themselves. I love to participate in Seminary. My teachers are awesome, and It is just a great way to take a breather from school and remember what being here is all about. One of my favorite things to do with my friends is going to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. We have made a goal to go every other week this year! I love being a Mormon, and I can't imagine living my life any other way!
