Hi I'm Brandon

I am the oldest of seven kids. I am all about the running. I love being around people. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Brandon and I am the oldest of seven kids. I was born in Mesa, Arizona and lived there my whole life until moving to Taiwan for two years as a church missionary. My sophomore year of high school I started Cross Country and have loved it ever since. I love being outdoors, doing anything from hiking to wakeboarding. My family and friends mean everything to me and someday I am going to be able to do a backflip.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because one night, while I was camping, I was reading a book called the Book of Mormon. It claimed that it was the word of God and I decided I wanted to know if it was true. So I prayed and asked God if it was true and He answered my prayer. That answer changed my life for the better. I now know that I have a Father in Heaven that communicates with me. Since that prayer I have learned that God loves me and His Son Jesus, is the Christ. Now that I know these things I have a peace that no matter the situation I am in or the challenges that life brings, God can and will lead my life. As I follow the teachings of Christ I have a peace and comfort that in the end, everything will be alright.

How I live my faith

This is a hard question because sometimes it is kind of hard. I think that living my faith is something that I need to work at and be better at everyday. Right now, I am a full-time missionary for my church. My purpose as a missionary is to invite others to come unto Christ. So, I teach those interested in our church about Christ, and how they can gain the same answer that I did. But, I think the most important way I live my faith is through the small choices I make everyday. This church is about living, not just believing. I pray to God everyday. I read the words of prophets everyday so I can know how to improve. I attend church every week and strive to be a better person everyday.
