Hi I'm Brody

I grew up in Perth. I love music and play the piano. Sport keeps me fit and happy, I love playing soccer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love living life to the fullest and getting the most out of every day. I have several main aspects in my life; my family, my friends, my music, and last but certainly not least; my faith I thoroughly enjoy seeing those people which make my life worthwhile, the people who brighten my day. When I'm not around friends, I stick to my music and either lie down/sit down and listen to some tunes or jump on the keys and play some music on the ol' piano. Keeping fit as a high priority and I find that riding on my bike to where I need to go and/or going for a run whenever possible works great, especially if playing a sport is presented. I also enjoy my fare share of movies and TV. I love horrors and comedies, often a horror can be a comedy if it's lame enough. Anime is also a great way to pass the time, I like all sorts of shows ranging from Inu Yasha, to Bleach, to Naruto to Deathnote. In any case, if the event involves having a good laugh, I'll be there!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for multiple reasons. The first being that I know that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ makes this life worth living. When all hope is lost, my Saviour Jesus Christ is able to not just sympathise, but empathise in any and all situations. I know that He didn't just suffer for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane, but he suffered for all of our pains and our afflictions, our sadness and our sorrow. Otherwise, He wouldn't be able to succor people according to their infirmities. (Alma 7:11-12) This gospel is so different to anything I have ever experienced previous. I've attended other churches and none seem to offer the fulness of His gospel that I know has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. It lives and breathes every day in my soul. I know that my Redeemer lives and there is nothing on this earth that is able to take that away from me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing more than attend church on Sundays. A person who attends church on Sundays just to become a Christian is like an old car driving on a race-track with the intent to be as the race-cars. Sure, it's a step in the right direction, but it's so much more than that. I feel as though we need to attain a roaring engine of faith. A body kit strong like the armour of God that we shield ourselves from the adversary. Wheels aligned correctly so we don't inadvertently wander off course. And finally, our hands firm on the wheel with the goal in mind, knowing the path ahead and not veering our eyes left and right. The beauty in this analogy is that there's a difference between the race-track and life. Life isn't a race. Heavenly Father knows that we're going to veer off track or not know where to find the road and has prepared a way for us to reach the end goal of Eternal Life. I live my faith by holding firm to the testimony I've attained for myself. By fervent prayer, I know that through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, by holding firm to the word of God, His Holy scriptures, that our car will be able to comfortably, at it's own pace, see the goal in mind and reach it. I pray daily for strength. The scriptures teach me more and more each day. I strive to keep his commandments, and repent/change myself in order to 'get back on track' where needed. I don't just love my faith, I live my faith.
