Hi I'm Brandon

I'm a Texan. I'm Navajo. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Brandon. I'm the oldest of 3 kids. I love to push myself to its physical limits. I am always looking for new challenges and things that will truly test me. I find myself lost in music most of the time. I enjoy things like foods, sports, and family. I started college for Civil Engineering and hope to finish someday... until then, I'm serving our Lord on a mission in Long Beach, California.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the chruch, but that doesn't mean I didn't make my own decision to still be a part of it. My family is still, relatively speaking, new to the church. My grandparents on my father's side are the first generation to be members. I have always noticed the difference in my life compared to the lives of some of my friends. Especially now, since we're all older and making our "adult decisions," I can't begin to tell you how important the Gospel is to factor in to those equations. A lot of my friends are living lives filled with regret. Yes, we all make mistakes, but knowing the plan that my Heavenly Father has in place for me confirms in me that I can be made whole. One scripture that has made all the difference for me is from the Book of Mormon (for those that haven't read it, you should get yourself a copy). That scripture comes from the second book of Nephi, first chapter, verse 15: "Behold, the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld his glory, and I am encircled about eternally in the arms of his love." I came to know that through the glory of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, I can receive comfort now as well as through all eternity. I did not let that principle go to waste, I acted upon it. I try to live from day to day knowing that I am a child of God, knowing that we all are His children and that He loves each and every single one of us. He has a plan for us, He wants us to accept it, He wants us to return to him.

How I live my faith

Currently, my calling within the church is as a full-time missionary of the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was called to serve in the spring of 2012 and will serve here until the spring of 2014. I have the opportunity to wake up each morning to study, teach, and live the Gospel.
