Hi I'm Brandon Thurgood

I have lived in Utah for mostly all of my life and enjoy playing basketball and being outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family and would do anything for them. I enjoy being outdoors as much as I can. I enjoy riding 4 wheelers, horseback riding, boating and camping to name a few. My true passion is basketball. I love playing basketball as well as watching the NBA and NCAA on television. I have been to 1 year of college and I plan to attend college immediately after returning from my mission. I have been able to travel to different places including the opportunity to serve a mission in Mendoza, Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it gives me purpose and comfort in my life. I know the reason that I am here and what i need to do each day to strive to be a better person and more like my savior Jesus Christ. I know that God has a plan for us and through this plan I can live with the family that i love so dearly for eternity. This gospel has given me peace in times of need as well as strength in times of doubt. I know the love that my Heavenly Father has for me and for all of the people on the earth and I know of these amazing blessings because of my mormon belief.

How I live my faith

At the moment I live my faith all day every day. I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have never been happier in my life. I know that this gospel is true because I have felt the difference in my life while I am living it and the joy is something that must be experienced to understand.
