Hi I'm Brady

I grew up in Idaho. I love musical theater. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a large family as the youngest of six children. I have been an uncle since I was eight years old and I love spending time with my nieces and nephews. I am a musical theater enthusiast and I love to sing and perform on stage. I love to learn new things. Reading is one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. I also love old school black and white television, you can never be too modern to enjoy the classics. I am a firm believer that Life is Good!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. In my early youth I distanced myself from the things of God and I felt I could find my happiness in some other way, but I soon realized that was a mistake. I began to search within myself to find what was missing. When my search led me to my knees in prayer I found a new meaning to life as I began to understand that I have a loving Father in Heaven. That experience led me to read the Book of Mormon for the first time. As I read the book over the coming months my life changed. I came to know with greater clarity that God lives and that He has restored the fullness of His gospel once again to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. I have no doubt of this truth because I went to God in prayer to discover for myself that knowledge that no man can give. The Book of Mormon is the word of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I try to follow the example of the Savior, Jesus Christ by helping others come to know of Him. I am currently serving a full-time two year mission to teach all who will listen about Christ and how in His love He has restored His gospel.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Brady
Authority is an important concept in every part of our lives, and that especially applies to those things necessary for our salvation, as is baptism. Imagine you are speeding down the road and a lawyer pulls up alongside you and tells you to pull over. He comes up and tells you how you were breaking the law and then proceeds to give you a ticket. As a lawyer he has studied the law for many years and knows exactly what you were doing wrong, but nonetheless he has no authority to give out a ticket. That authority is given only to policemen. The same is true of baptism. A man may be well studied and know everything about baptism and why it is necessary, but unless he is given the authority of God to baptize it isn't valid. After the death of Christ and His Apostles that authority disappeared. God has restored that specific authority to the earth once again through His prophet Joseph Smith in the year 1829 and it has remained in tact since that time and is found within God's restored church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
