Hi I'm Brandon Cook

I'm glad to be a member of The Church of Latter-day Saints. I love people and believe you can learn a lesson from any one person.

About Me

Hi, I 'm Brandon , I'm 18 and getting ready to go on my mission. If I had to have one hobby It would be learning stuff. I love learning to do new things and experience new things. I went to Utah State for a semester of college (GO AGGIES!!!) and that was a great new experience.

Why I am a Mormon

I was a kid always raised in the church and why should I have any reason to doubt my parents religion right? Well, life comes fast and everyone comes to a point where you must decide to find out for your self. For me I truly came to a realization that the Church was true when I read the Book of Mormon everyday until the very end. It became a friend to me in times of need giving me counsel in all things. I prayed for myself to know if this was the true church and I prayed every night for a month or so and then in church someone testified of the truth of this church and Christ and it hit me. Now I know I'm a member of the church of God and it is his church organized through his son Jesus Christ. I'm a Member because I know its true. I'm a member because it brings me the most joy, more joy than anything else would. I'm a member because Christ atoned for all of our sins. I'm a member because the church teaches mercy and redemption through Christ, I'm a member because by the temple ordinances I am sealed to my family for eternity if I play my part well. I'm a member because the gospel teaches us to become better by being selfless

How I live my faith

I am about to embark on a two year mission for this great church and am paying my money to be there but i know what I'm getting in return is so so much more special the opportunity to lose myself in the work of the lord. I have also helped lead music in church. I have been blessed in the past to take the life saving and sacred ordinance of the sacrament to those whom circumstances might not allow for them to do so in church. I have gave my time to gather fast offering which is money which we gather when we fast. The church asks us to give the cost of the meal as a fast offering for those with need of our help. I to have given to this fund seeing it as a good cause.
