Hi I'm Michael Bragg

I'm a Mormon. I love participating in sports and goofing off with my 3 younger brothers. I love to eat too.

About Me

I'm an Eagle Scout and have spent many hours camping, hiking, fishing, boating and all the fun things that come with the scouting program. I like spending time outdoors. I am a college student attending Brigham Young University, currently taking some time off to prepare to serve a two year full time mission. I played football throughout high school as a tight end, some basketball and recently have tried a bit of soccer. My color is blue, favorite food would have to be a double bacon cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup and mustard. Smelling candles oddly is what i do when I'm in a store that sells candles.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon or a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have felt the Holy Spirit work within me and reveal the truth that Christ has re-established His Church upon the Earth again. To understand what God has given and revealed to us as His children on Earth is the key. The Bible is a record of God's word through the mouths of men and by men, He tells us the plan. And, the plan is that Christ came and atoned for all our sins so that we may live with our Heavenly Father once again. Prophets foretold Christ's coming since the beginning of man and it was fulfilled. Similarly, God has revealed that Christ will once come again, that before His coming there will be great evil and a falling away from Christ's Church, and that in preparation to His coming, there will be a restitution in all things. In addition to His Church, ancient prophets such as Elijah will come before that great and dreadful day of the Lord. The Scribes and the Pharisees rejected Jesus even though He truly was the Christ. These prophesies concerning a restitution of the fullness of His gospel are occurring now and the evidence is found within the Book of Mormon and the fruits and structure of His church. I urge those who wish to be the closest they can be to God, take a step, read the Book of Mormon, investigate the LDS Church and if you pray, as I did, with a pure desire to know if these are the fruits of God with persistent faith, He will make it known unto you.

How I live my faith

As I prepare to go out into the world to preach His Gospel as a missionary, I serve at Church as a local missionary. I aide the full time missionaries who are serving in my town. It is a calling to prepare me to serve those wherever in the world i will be serving. Through service and walking in the footsteps of Christ, I hope to be able to be a good influence to those around me.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Michael Bragg
We are all God's children. He loves us all in a prefect and incomprehensible way, every single one of us. I am not a father but many a time have I heard that a parent wants their children to succeed. I am sure that since we are all the offspring of God and He loves us, He would want His entire family to come live with Him. Through His children, His purposes are come to pass. Show more Show less
