Hi I'm Brett

I am one of seven kids. I have a wife and 4 children. I sell insurance for a living, and I love classic cars. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a father of 3 boys and 1 girl. I was a gymnast in High School and my daughter took after me and became a competetive gymnast. I also loved to ride dirt bikes as a kid, now my 3 boys ride and Jump better than I ever could. My favorite hobbie is classic cars and hot rods. I love to build and drive them whenever I have time. My boys and my wife have already picked out the classic cars that they want to build for themselves. They all have caught the hot rod bug. I am an indipendent insurance salesman which I love since I can control my own schedule. I also love people and I love life.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents married young and were not active members of any church. When the Mormon missionaries knocked on their door they were curious and let them in. Because the missionaries were able to answer questions that no other ministers were able to answer, my parents began to study the church with the intent of finding out the truthfullness of it. As a result they developed a testimony and joined the church. Even though relatives and others told my parents that they were going to Hell for joining the church, they have remained true to their testimonies to this day. I was born a couple of years after my parents joined the church, and was raised as a Mormon. Nevertheless, I had to gain my own testimony of the truthfullness of the gospel as did my parents. In my youth I began to study the docterines of the gospel. I read the Bible, the Book of Mormon and the other scriptures given by our modern day prophets. I read, and prayed to know the truth, and over the years I have gained a testimony of the saviors gospel that has sustained me to this day. I am a Mormon because I have gained a knowledge of the gospel that I cannot deny. Granted, I have made as many mistakes as anyone else on this earth, and I have many weaknesses that I will be working on for as long as I live, but that does not change what I know to be true. Infact, my knowledge of the gospel gives me the motivation to try and become a better person. It is the example of the savior and his love for all of us that makes me want to be like him. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. It is a blessing in my life and it can be in your's as well.

How I live my faith

I love my fellow man. I enjoy helping other in need, be it my family members or someone stranded on the freeway. It brings joy to me to know that the blessings I have been given by the Lord can be shared with others to bless their lives. I have had the opportunity to serve as a leader in the Boy Scouts program at church. It's great to give of my time to help those boys learn usefull skills that will serve them well as they become men and fathers. As do many other Christian religions, the Church has also given me the opportunity to serve in the community at the men's shelter, at public thrift stores, at the church welfare farm and the welfare cannery that helps to feed thousands of people. There's no greater feeling than doing something that gives back to the community and others. I have also had the opportunity to serve a mission for our church in Little Rock, Arkansas which has been a blessing in my life as well as those I had the chance to teach. I know that Christianity means serving other as the Savior did. I am grateful that as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ I have been taught from my youth to do just that. Now I try to set the examle for my children to do the same as they grow in the gospel.
