Hi I'm Braxton Breinholt

I love to play the piano, I am an identical twin, I grew up in Gilbert Arizona, I love sports and Im a Mormon.

About Me

I love being active and playing whatever sport that I can pick up. Soccer has been apart of my life for 12 years but I also love basketball and baseball. Wakeboarding and snowboarding are also some great activities that I enjoy doing. I am apart of a family of 10 with 4 sisters and 3 brothers. We love spending time together and doing whatever we can to have a good laugh; whether it is spending time at a park or at home just being goofballs. I have an identical twin and I wouldn't trade the world for him; although sometimes we may not get along we always figure it out and come together. One thing I love doing is to be apart of and enjoy nature; to see what beauty that our Heavenly Father has created for us and to know that He really does love us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is true. I have been raised in this church by great parents who love me and taught me correct principles of how to live. I have always kind of seen the blessings of living this gospel and learning it. My family was generally happier and we got along or things just always seemed to work out and I never realised it before but really it was because of this gospel. All of my life I have been told the same principles of reading and praying and everything that we are supposed to do. I have always believed it but i was never always converted to it. I have had experiences in my life that I have received answers to prayers and questions that confirmed that this is good and true. But it was when I really decided to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it that I soon became converted to this gospel. I am a mormon because I have a testimony that this is God's restored church on the earth today. I have seen the blessings in my life and there is no way that I could deny that He doesn't exist or that this is not true. I am so happy all of the time and I thank my Heavenly Father for it, because it is this gospel that makes me so happy. I know that this is true and that it is here to bless all of our lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the simple steps. Read, pray, go to church, those kind of things. But honestly those are a few of the steps or ways that I live my faith. I live the way that I know that my Savior Jesus Christ would want me to live. I strive to follow His example in loving everyone. This gospel brings me so much happiness and peace in my life that I couldn't picture my life without it. I have been called to the Canada Halifax Mission to preach and share this gospel and I am so grateful for that opportunity. I know that God loves us and that He has a plan for us and the opportunity that I have to help others know that is one I am truly grateful for. I strive to come closer to our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ by living by their teachings and I know that as we do we will be happy.
