Hi I'm Brad

I grew up in Arizona, lived in North Carolina, California, and now Idaho. I have creative hobbies and enjoy a good jam out.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 5 Kids born into a LDS family. My mom has been a lifetime member. My dad is a convert who converted before they got married. Grew up in Arizona and served my mission in North Carolina Charlotte. My family moved to California while I was gone and came home to California. Applied to BYU Idaho and am now a current student. I spend my time studying and creating music. Although I am not that experienced, I'm hoping to make money by making music and hope to use it to further my education and living conditions.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up a member of the church and have always felt good about it. I never really had the desire to search out other faiths or seek new paths. It is home for me, and I understand that many people of other faiths feel the same way I'm sure. I've come to better realize that on my mission. From comparison however, I know that there is more that can be offered in this faith than any other I know of. I can't say I could be more influenced to become a better person than in this church. I can't imagine what I would be like with lower standards, or ignorance of the principles the gospel contains. I'm a Mormon because I want to, and I'm happy to be one.

How I live my faith

I've always tended to keep to myself and give nobody any reason to dislike me... or to like me as I've come to realize from my way of living. I was just existing throughout high school. As I served a mission for the church, I not only learned to help others, but I learned how to help myself live what I believed better. I had the opportunity to apply my new knowledge as I lived in California for half a year. The only time I got out of the house was to work at CVS. I tried my best to be Christlike to everyone I worked with and served. I was a cashier, and it was a great job. Now currently an unemployed student at BYUI, I look back and I'm surprised how much I miss that job and the opportunity to work and talk with people. I hope those people felt something, or took something good away from me being there. I hope to live my faith in a way where people can see me and realize that I walk the walk and not just talk the talk. This is something everyone should do, and not be afraid of judgement or stabbing remarks. After all, look at how Christ lived and served. He is whom I want to be and it starts by becoming as much as I can and go from there.
