Hi I'm Brandon

I'm just a kid from a small Idaho town who loves having fun. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up a member of the church, and spent most of my life in Idaho. In high school I lived in a small town called Horseshoe Bend and graduated with a class of 15 students. I played football, basketball, and track and field all four years. My school played eight man football, and I always played tight end. With such a small team I was able to play pretty much everywhere on defense. I played all four years on the varsity basketball team, which isn't a huge accomplishment in a small school. In track I mostly competed in high jump and triple jump. I was invited to the senior all-star game in both football and basketball. I also received the athlete of the year award, which again wasn't a big deal because I was the only senior boy who played more than one sport. I attended the fall semester of BYU-I and plan to continue there when I return from my mission. I loved my time in college.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the church, but I've developed my own testimony over the course of my life. Most of this was in my late teenage years. I've come to learn that I'm so blessed to have this gospel in my life. Since leaving on a mission I've learned this more and more and I hope to be able to share this gospel with so many others. I love this gospel. I love my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I know that they know me better than I know myself and love me more than I could ever understand. I'm so grateful for this gospel, and for the knowledge I have and the chance to live with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by always being a example. I've served in a few callings such as seminary president, the first counselor in the preists quorom, and as a branch missionary. This last one was my favorite, since I was able to go on splits with full-time missionaries and share the gospel. It really got my excited for my chance to now be serving my own mission. I hope to serve with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I want to finish my mission and know I worked as hard as I could. I know I won't be the greatest teacher, but I want to know that I worked as hard as I could and have no regrets after my mission.
