Hi I'm Brent

I am a cadet at West Point, I am a track hammer thrower, I am a missionary in Argentina, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in a military family and had the opportunity of living in many different places growing up. Throughout high school I was a three sport athlete and received honors at the state level in football and track. I am now a cadet at the United States Military Academy and am majoring in mechanical engineering. I would like to branch infantry. I taught in the primary in our branch and am involved in the institute program here. I leave on my mission to Buenos Aires, Argentina in August.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know Christ is my savior and that he attoned for my sins. I am a child of God and I know God loves me. I know the Book of Mormon is a true record of Christ and that the Bible and Book of Mormon work hand in hand in teaching God's word. I know there is a prophet on the earth today who leads and guids this church in accordance to the will of God. I know Joseph Smith restored the fulness of the gospel to the earth, and that he was lead by God through revelation in translating the Book of Mormon. I believe in the power of prayer and personal revelation and that we can pray to receive an answer or guidance in our lives. Through revelation we can know the church is true. If we do the right things and live our lives in accordance to God's commandments, God will bless our lives and we can live a happy life.

How I live my faith

During my junior and senior year in high school I was involved with the church's scouting program, participated in semenary, was a part of the young men's program, and was a co-chair of the stake youth committee. Now here at West Point as a cadet, I have the opportunity to teach in the primary to ages 6 and 7. I love it because it has helped me realize the importance of the simple docrine as well as how to teach young children.
