Hi I'm Bracken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Northern Utah. I went to a year of college at Utah State University before leaving on a mission in Oaxaca Mexico. I am the middle child with a sister on either side of me. I like superheroes, racquetball, watching movies, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with this church. It was in my neighborhood and in my family. But I'm not a member because of tradition, or because of family expectations. I am a member because my faith is what gives me purpose in life, it makes sense and when I put it in practice I'm happy. The happiness I get from the gospel isn't a fleeting happiness, but a deep, abiding happiness. Even when I'm faced with hard times, or life isn't going well, this happiness lasts through it. I've been given a witness that this church has the truth. I can't turn away from what I know to be the truth.

How I live my faith

I've been called to serve a mission in Oaxaca, Mexico. It's pretty hot here right now, but I love it. I have the chance to tell others what I beleive and why. The blessings I get from trying to live as Christ taught, I get to share with others by helping them realize they can receive the same thing.
