Hi I'm Brad

I grew up in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I am working on a degree in Construction Management. I love sports. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My Name is Brad and I am recently married. I love my wife and I love being married. Both of us are still in school and I am working on a degree in Construction Management. I grew up in the beautiful area of North Idaho and I grew up playing sports. I love football, lacrosse and baseball. I also grew up playing the string bass and cello. I love the outdoors and I love to hike and fish. I hope that I will always be able to do these things for the rest of my life. During the winter I spend most of my free time snow skiing and during the summer I spend a lot of my free time wake-boarding. Staying active is very important to me. I try to go running as much as I can. My wife and I have a goal to run a half marathon every year as long as we are physically able.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon means everything to me. My parents were both strong members of the church when I was born so I have been going to church for as long as I can remember. Throughout my life my testimony has continued to grow day by day. I know that all the good things that I have come to me in this life have come as a result to being a mormon. I had the opportunity to serve a full time mission to Tijuana, Mexico for two years. It was difficult time but also a time of great learning and great joy. I developed a true testimony of the Church during this time and I learned to appreciate the trials that come our way. I am a Mormon because this is Christ's church and the only church that has the priesthood of God, which is the power that God gives to man to act in his name here on the earth. Because of this priesthood I am now sealed to my wife. This means that we will not be separated when we die but our marriage will continue on for eternity. I know that this is the only true church here on the earth. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he gave his life for us so that we will be able to live with our Heavenly Father. I know that we have a Prophet here on the earth just like all the past prophets that have live. I know that this Gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I believe that best way to live our faith is by example. I try to be a leader in the church by reaching out to others and serving them. I love to see the joy that people feel when someone helps them with something they are struggling with. I try to be a friend to all, especially to those who may not have many friends. In this world the family is of little importance. Marriage has seemed to become a thing of the past and children are not taken care of in the way that they should. I hope that my wife and I will be able to be an example to others of a family that stays together in all things.
