Hi I'm Bret

I'm a veteran, I'm a pilot, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a military family, moving around every couple of years. I also grew up in a Mormon family. Following in my father's footsteps I served a mission for the church, entered the Air Force, and started a family of my own. Now I am retired from the military, work as a professional pilot, and am busy raising three kids of my own. My wife and my beliefs are very important to me. I am proud of what I have accomplished in my life: traveling the world, working in-depth with China, and developing a solid profession. But I am also proud that now I have a stable life, time for hobbies of music and gardening, and the time to devote to my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to be acquainted with many people from around the world. Never is there anyone happier than one who believes and follows Jesus Christ. His gospel and the direction of His church here on the earth leads one to live a more content and happy life. That is true for me personally and for anyone whom I have met. The Holy Spirit has been a major influence in my life, and by following his guidance my life has been led in unplanned but wonderful paths. I am grateful to my parents who taught me the gospel and made it possible for me to grow up and gain my own testimony of Jesus Christ. Thru their influence I have been able to study, pray, and find out for myself about the 'tender mercies' enjoyed by those who follow Jesus Christ. His church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is his means of leading us today. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently the president of the Sunday School organization in our ward. It's main responsibility includes seeing that the teaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ is carried out properly in our ward. I enjoy working with all of the organizations and age groups to achieve this goal. It also helps me in my own responsibilities as a father and in the other families that I am assigned to look out for. Teaching a principle helps you learn it more fully and feel responsible for incorporating it in your own life.
