Hi I'm Brett

I'm an Alaskan. I love extreme adventures. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am third generation, pure blood Alaskan. I have grown up on the Kenai Peninsula my whole life. I am 19 years old. I have an older sister and two younger brothers. My parents have taught me from a very young age how to work hard and have fun. I did Gardening for 7 summers since I was 5. I learned how to hate and love flowers, but I loved to work in the dirt. My Grandparents have been a huge part of my life, and I love them to death. My teen prime years were a blast. My family was my best of friends. The winters were mainly dedicated to snowmachining! We would travel around the state and film our adventures in the mountains. We made some of the best memories you can make by getting extreme as family and friends. In the summers I build houses with my best buddy Blake. Now I am currently serving In South Carolina as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. I was born into the church. It always bothered me to think... If this is the "True Church" how was it that I was so fortunate as to happen to be born into it!? It didn't make sense to me. I took it for granted to have such a wonderful family and be apart of Christ's church! About a year and a half before I was planning on serving a Mission, I truly had to know for myself if this WAS the true and everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ. Because if it wasn't, than I was not going to spend two years serving for it. But if it was, than I would do everything to help others come to know as well. After much prayer, and fasting with an real intent heart, by reading the Book of Mormon, and applying the teachings to my life...I Knew that it was of God! By listening to the modern prophet, Thomas Monson, I Knew he was a prophet of God. And I also had the burning Faith and Hope that my family can be together forever! And by knowing these precious truths, I knew and could not deny that Joseph Smith did see the Father and the Son. Christ has restored his everlasting gospel upon the Earth today. And EVERYONE needs to know that! That's why I'm all the way down here in South Carolina!

How I live my faith

Christ has given us the Ultimate example of how to live our lives. I show my faith, love, and gratitude to him by serving others. It is the pure love of Christ. It is what brings us True Happiness. I love Him with all my heart, and I can nowise ever come close to repaying him, but I can show him that love by helping others come to Him:)
