Hi I'm Brent.

I'm a husband. I'm a father. I love anything with wheels. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a large family, with 6 brothers and sisters. I have been married to my best friend for 17 years. I have two cool sons. I have earned my Master's Degree in Business. I like to learn and better myself. I have a pet tortoise. I enjoy pretty much anything with wheels. I have an old truck that I am rebuilding for the second time.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the values and beliefs of the Mormon church bring peace and strength to my life. I haven't always been as strong and focused as I am now. I made some choices when I was younger that I am not proud of. I learned that when I made incorrect choices I was not very happy. I needed to evaluate my life and decide what was most important and what I wanted for the future. I realized that I needed to get closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ, and follow His example. I work hard everyday to do this. He has made so many blessings available to us if we will make correct choices and follow Him. I'm far from perfect, but at least I'm moving in the right direction. The blessings I receive from living the Gospel and following the Savior as a member of the Mormon church are too great for me to count. My faith grows every day.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. There is no paid clergy in the Mormon church. Our local leader is called a Bishop. A Bishop oversees a Ward. There are generally 300-600 people in a Ward. As such, the Bishop has a lot of responsibility. I currently serve as my Bishop's secretary. I set up appointments for him, help organize his meetings, create and maintain agendas for those meetings, communicate information to the Ward, and support the Bishop any way that I can. I am also a Home Teacher. This means that I am assigned to visit 2-4 families in the Ward at least once a month to check on their spiritual and physical welfare. Outside of my circle of Mormon friends, people know that I'm a Mormon, so I think they have high expectations of me. I try to maintain high standards so that there is no question as to my religious beliefs or values. I try to live my life in such a way that people can trust and respect me.
