Hi I'm Bryton

I'm an artist, and a musician. I'm a hipster. I love my family, friends, and mustaches, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a normal, everyday person. I spend my time listening to, writing and playing music. I center my life around the arts. Whether I'm building a sculpture, painting a mural, playing an instrument, or dancing in a crowd, I always focus on the creative side of life. I also enjoy the active side of life. I wakeboard with my family during the summers, and I love to be on the mountains during the winter. I've also ridden bmx since I was young, so I love to be in the streets when I'm not on the lake. I'm currently serving a mission in the Kentucky Louisville Mission, but plan on continuing my schooling when I get home. The road is long, but I plan on becoming a surgeon, in what particular field, I haven't quite decided yet. Although that is the medical field and not in the arts, I will always have a place for art in my life. I hope to someday, after all my schooling and such, open an art gallery of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in Utah, I was raised a member of the church. I didn't really know what that meant until I was 17 or 18 years old. I went through the motions of the church, and did the things that I was asked to do, but none of it meant anything to me. I didn't live like a member, and I didn't really care to. Over time I started realizing that I wasn't really happy at where I was in my life. I did the same things every day, and none of it really made me happy and it barely even entertained me. That's when I decided that something needed to change. The people around me weren't going to change, school wasn't going to change, the world wasn't going to change, I needed to change. And that's exactly what I did. I left everything I grew up with behind, and decided to be true to myself and be the kind of person I wanted to be. I made new friends. I spent my time in different places. I focused on different things. I ended up with the best friends, I've ever had, with going more places and doing more things than I ever had. I had never been happier in my life. Then, all my best friends were preparing and leaving on missions for the church. I had never seriously considered a mission before then. I had never even considered I the church was even true. That's when I dove into the Book of Mormon and really started focusing when I went to church. I then realized the difference that going to church and being a member had made in my life, and how grateful I was for it. I know that this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith really did restore the true church to the Earth today. I know that we have a living prophet today, and that I will be able to be with my family forever. I know the blessings that the Gospel has brought to my family and I know that I wouldn't be the person I am today without being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm so grateful to be a member of this church and everything it has done for me

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to do everything I can for the people around me. I currently am serving a mission for the church in the Kentucky Louisville Mission and have the amazing blessing of giving everyone here the opportunity to hear the word, and receive the blessings that I know comes from living the Gospel. Christ focused on loving and serving everyone, and I'm so grateful to be able to set apart two years from my life to serve the Lord as a full time missionary. There's nothing I would rather be doing at this point in my life. I love the Gospel and I want everyone to receive the happiness it brings.
