Hi I'm Brian

I'm a student, I'm an athlete, I'm an aspiring philanthropist and I love Lebanese food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in Florida, Utah, and California I was always interested in current events and wanted to pursue a career in law. After finishing high school I began studying Political Science in university and loved it! Along with studying, I love to read as well as play just about any sport-tennis, basketball, and football are my favorites.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family that practiced the Mormon faith and I was taught the importance of prayer and reading the scriptures almost before I began walking. The reason I have continued to practice my faith is because of the life experiences I have had. I have found without fail that when I follow the commandments of God, I am happy. The times when I have chosen to ignore those commandments I thought I was happy for a time, but ultimately I found that such happiness was merely transitory. The personal revelation I received from God that I am part of his church did not come in a column of light or from a heavenly messenger; rather, it came, and continues to come, day by day as I try to follow in the footsteps of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for the knowledge of living apostles and prophets that strengthen my faith and help me to know how to avoid the danger and evil that face our modern society.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a full-time volunteer missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I get to talk to everyone I see-all day, every day (yes, even weekends!)-about Jesus Christ and the plan that our Father in Heaven has created for us. I love helping people come to a knowledge of a personal Savior who suffered for them so that he could help them deal with real life challenges that we all face every day. Along with teaching English, I am always seeking out opportunities to serve in the community to help people of all faiths and ethnicities.
