Hi I'm Brad Ling

I am a husband, a father, a friend, a concerned member of society and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a father of 5 boys aged 11 to 21 years old. Between my wife and I we do our best to keep up with our busy family. In my free time I enjoy many outdoor activities including camping, mountain bike riding, motorcycling and yard work.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. I was raised in a family where the belief was that all that was necessay of us was to be a good person and that religion was a personal thing that did not require us to attend a formal church. Ralph waldo Emerson Stated: “One of man’s greatest desires in life is to find someone who will make him do what he is capable of.” When I was 20 I was beginning to wonder what the purpose of life was and was there more. About this point a young woman entered my life who had a much more clear idea of who she was and where she was going. This same girl introduced me to the gospel and gave me a Book of Mormon. I began reading out of curiosity and soon found myself engrossed in the book and found it fascinating . Thus began my conversion. I was married in the Temple to that very same young woman who introduced me to the church. I have strived through the last 25 years to do my best at living as Christ and follow the teachings of our Prophet.

How I live my faith

I strive to serve in my community as much as I can. I feel like it is important that I do my part to make the world i live in a better place. I have served on an advisory committee at our local college. I have also served on committees for a local relay for life fund raiser. I find great joy in serving, it is when I feel the most full and content with myself. In church I serve in our local Ward Leadership and serve the members of our congregation.
