Hi I'm Bryan

I grew up all over the United States. I have an MS in Electrical Engineering and am getting an MBA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an MBA student have a 2 year old daughter and my wife is pregnant with our second girl. My bachelor's degree is in Physics. I love reading technology news and trying out the newest electronic gadgets.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being Mormon because it makes me happy. That is the main reason that I know that it is Jesus Christ's church because his whole message was centered around joy and that is what being a Mormon brings to me. In the Mormon church none of the pastors or teachers are paid. Right now I work with the little kids 1.5-3 years old. It makes me happy to have this time during my week that I can play with them and teach them about sharing and how to be nice to each other. I have served in many different capacities in the church and each of them has helped me to grow closer to the people around me and closer to God. I'm not as diligent in reading my scriptures as I should be but I love the messages that are shared in our General Conference. General conference is held every 6 months and it is an opportunity to hear inspired talks from the leaders of our church prepared for the entire worldwide membership. This experience is always uplifting and is a great opportunity for me to make new goals and to refocus on the things that are most important in life.

How I live my faith

Almost everyone that knows me knows that I'm Mormon. They usually find out when it comes up that I don't drink. (A decent amount of drinking goes on in business school). I firmly believe in my values and feel strongly that others should believe in theirs. I have had many great conversations with friends of different religions or that are not religious at all. These have been great sources of reflection and introspection for me. Talking about religion should not be so taboo; talking about "religion" or our core values is really just talking about what is most important to each of us. I mainly try to live my faith in a way that I can feel comfortable with myself.
