Hi I'm Brian Gosnell

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am your typical jock who likes to do and try just about anything and if it doesn't kill me I just may try it again. I have been sky diving, back country skiing, rock climbing and white water rafting. I have a passion for sports and of course being from Kentucky I am big on basketball. I am a father of two beautiful girls, one of which recently went home to our Heavenly Father. My wife and I love adventures and hope to travel abroad now that I am done with my MBA.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. I had the privilege of learning at an early age that I am a child of God. I grew up outside of Louisville, KY where most of my friends belonged to other denominations. Many of those friends had strong convictions in their beliefs and shared them with me. In high school I had the opportunity to visit many denominations and learn of their teachings. I enjoyed visiting those churches and took away many great experiences. But I never quite felt at home as I did when I went to the LDS church. In my search I decided to go to my Father in Heaven in prayer and ask Him where I should go to church. The Holy spirit witnessed to me that the things I learned in my youth are true. I am a Mormon because the teachings of the restored gospel just make sense. All the questions I had as a youth could be answered through the plan of salvation. I came closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ though reading the Book of Mormon and abiding by its teachings. I am now a father of two beautiful little girls, one of which recently passed away due to heart complications. Because of this plan I know where to search for strength and understanding. I have the hope and knowledge that I will see my little angel again. I know the fullness of the gospel has been restored and you can know for yourself too. John 14:26 "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." I promise if you search the truths taught here and you pray with sincerity you will know for yourself the things taught are true.

How I live my faith

I am very active in my local congregation. I currently teach Sunday School for those who are new members and/or investigating our church. I especially love the opportunity to teach about my Savior Jesus Christ and testify of His saving Grace.
