Hi I'm Brad

I'm a Mormon and I'm blessed because of what this adds to my life.

About Me

I am an "adult" male, (my kids say I'm old), who like everyone else is just trying to make it through this life and be happy doing it. I am a father who is proud of his kids and hope every day to live as an example to them and to help them as we walk life's path together. I get up every day, go to work, come home and spend time with my family. In between the daily grind I try to look for and find the treasures of life left by God to discover by those who are willing to look. I've learned in life that what appears to be most important in youth often is replaced with a more fulfilling realization of what life can really offer.

Why I am a Mormon

In my quest for happiness I've learned that to truly be happy you have to forget about yourself and find happiness in helping others discover peace and happiness for themselves. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives us a plan to follow that teaches us to find this peace and satisfaction. The recipe is easy to understand but not so easy to follow. While this simple plan of keeping the commandments, listening for and following the direction of the spirit my seam too simple and unrewarding the reality is that following this plan not only brings great joy and peace but in all reality is the only way to obtain lasting and enduring peace. I'm a Mormon because I was born a Mormon but I have remained a Mormon and commit to follow this plan because I have a strong and sure understanding of the truths that it offers. My life's objective is to keep an eternal perspective in daily choices so my actions will support a desire to someday be granted access back home to live with Heavenly Father and my family in eternal happiness. I raise every day, do my best to remember and accept what I have been taught as true knowing that if I make it to the end of life having kept the faith I and my family will be blessed.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to remembering every day the blessings that have been granted to me and then being vigilant in doing what I know to be right. The small and seemingly insignificant acts of life in the end will account for the most; daily prayer, scripture study, kind words, an encouraging and helpful hand. These are the things that mean the most.
