Hi I'm Brett Hardman

I love being active, animals, wake boarding & games and kicking it sometimes when the weather is ugly & I am a Latter Day Saint!

About Me

I am the second to the youngest. I have 2 brothers and one sister. One younger brother and an older brother and my sister is the oldest. I enjoy the outdoors mainly during summer weather. I like boating, wake boarding and surfing not very good but I'm gonna try and get better at it ;). I love to draw, I am kind of a kid on the inside. I love anime and just playing around especially with my niece and nephew! I have loved drawing things ever since I can remember. I am told I am really good so that makes me feel good! But I always shoot to improve! Reaching for the Stars is what I do best. I enjoy sports and being in shape. My my favorite sports are football and UFC. I played football since I was in the 6th grade and I always enjoyed that. My NFL team is the Stealer s. You really won't get to know me through reading this but it's just a little something about me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because that is what the world calls me. I am a Latter Day Saint because the church is true. I know this is the only true living church on the face of the Earth. This is Christ's church restored again to the Earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. We read in the Bible that God is the same yesterday, today and forever so why would he stop calling Prophets? I am a Latter Day Saint because I prayed and received a powerful answer through the Holy Ghost, that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. And there is no denying it. I know Jesus Christ is the Son of God, The Savior of the World, my personal Savior and it is only through him that we can return to live with God and our families forever. We all fall short and one thing I have come to know is the mercy of the Savior and the power of his infinite Atonement. I know I am imperfect right now but I rely on the Saviors Atonement everyday and walk with him every day. So that eventually I can become perfect through Jesus Christ. I know that my Redeemer lives and that I will forever love and follow him. I gained my testimony through true prayer, reading the scriptures and going to Church. I gained the Strength of my testimony through time, opposition, mistakes, struggle, pain and long suffering. Going through all of that built my faith and knowledge of the Truthfulness of the Gospel and Strengthened my love for my Savior. God is good.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best that I can be. Being myself and not pretending to be someone I am not. Always trying to improve and becoming a better person spiritually, mentally and physically. Trying to become more like Christ every day. I have been trying to grow in the love of serving others. There is nothing like being charitable to someone who is less fortunate or someone who could use a hand. It's a wonderful thing to see the affect it has on people when you show them you love them enough to take time and help them .I attend church every Sunday. I didn't always realize how it could be was so important because I was young and immature and thought I could do it all on my own. I didn't realize till later after allot of growing up how wrong I was. I learned that I couldn't get anywhere in the World by myself. I started to see how much I really relied on my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ and how without them I couldn't do anything. I love church because It's a time to go and worship God and his Son Jesus Christ and take one specific day and give thanks and remember every single thing that they do for me every day. The best way I can and everybody can show their Love to God is by doing what God asks of us. It truly is the greatest thing ever and I cannot even begin to tell you the most of what I feel.
