Hi I'm Bret

I love country music, the outdoors, snowboarding, sports, my family, I am serving a mission in South Africa, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love basically all things pertaining to sports and music and the outdoors. I especially love to play football! I also love to hang out with my friends and make people smile. Snowboarding is one of my favorite things to do with my friends and brothers. I love hunting. I would rather be outside down at the creek or wherever instead of inside playing video games all day. I love country music! My brothers and I taught ourselves to play the ukulele and guitar and we love to sing together. My 2 older brothers and I are best friends! I am currently serving in the South Africa Durban Mission where I will teach the gospel for 2 years!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church but that's not why I'm a Mormon. There came a time where I personally had to ask God if the this church was His church, just like anyone who wants to know should. So I prayed and asked if it was true and I got my answer through the power of the Holy Ghost that this is the True church. I know Jesus Christ loves me and wants the best for me. Because of this gospel and my knowledge of it, I have come to know that I am never alone, and I can be forgiven of all my shortcomings and mistakes. I believe God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and because of that I know that he would still have prophets and revelation today just as in times of the Bible. I love the current prophet Thomas S. Monson and know his words are from God. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now, I have the special opportunity to be serving a full time mission. Everyday, 24/7 for 2 years I am helping to bring the gospel into peoples lives. I also live my faith by trying to be nice to everyone and making people smile. How can I say I am a follower of Christ if I dont treat others the way He would? I know I'm not perfect but I try my best to be a good example. This is how I show my faith.
