Hi I'm Brandon

I'm a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I come from a traditional family and have grown up being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In my high school years I participated in my high school marching band. Few things are more thrilling than to step onto the playing field and to hear the roar of thousands of people cheering you on.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have come to know of spiritual truths for myself. I know that Jesus Christ restored His church through the prophet Joseph Smith and that we have been led by a living prophet ever since. I know that we have a prophet alive today because of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and will bring any honest seeker of truth to come to know their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ like no other source. Its pages contain the gospel of Jesus Christ and radiates with the power to heal wounded souls. The Book of Mormon contains a promise. Where we are invited to read the Book of Mormon and to ponder the message it contains and to pray and ask God if the Book of Mormon is true. The promise says, "If ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye shall know the truth of all things." (Moroni 10:4-5) I know the Book of Mormon is true because I have seen the power it has in the lives of those who honestly want to know the truth. I have felt it in my life. And I have felt myself grow closer to Jesus Christ. And I love the Book of Mormon because I don't have to take anyone else's word for it. Because I know it for myself. The feelings of peace I receive as I read it are witnesses to me that the Book is true.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ because it has become a part of my life. One of the things I love most about being a member of the church is that the people are genuinely trying to live the best lives they can live. And there is a loving bond between the members. I have had the chance to work with many congregations of our church during my service as a missionary. But no matter where I have gone the feelings of the Spirit are the same. The more I put my faith and trust in Jesus Christ and follow His teachings the more I feel my Saviors love.
