Hi I'm Bryce

I grew up in Idaho. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho and am from a family of six kids. I love being with my family and being in the GREAT OUTDOORS! I love to hunt and fish, go camping and do anything that allows me to be with my family. I am a singer and I play piano. I love music and I have been blessed with the talents to be able to share that with other people. I have faced certain challenges in my life that make it a little harder to do certain things. However, I face these everyday and do the very best that I can, knowing that if I put my mind to it, and trust in God, I can do anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I am so grateful that I did. Because of the challenges that I have had to face in my life, I have often asked myself why I had to deal with them. Through some experiences that I have had recently, my faith has been strengthened that my Savior, Jesus Christ, knows exactly what I am going through. I have found a lot of peace in my life being a member of this church and having the knwledge that I do. I know that my Savior lives, that He atoned for all of our sins and that even though we may make mistakes in this life, we are able to repent. I know why I am a mormon and I have seen the blessings that come from being a member of His church. I am a mormon, because I have put a simple promise to the test (Moroni 10:3-5) I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it and I have come to know for myself that it is true. With this knowledge, I also know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God! I know that he translated the Book of Mormon through the gift and power of God and that the church that he restored, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the Lord's church and that it is on the earth once more. Coming from a family that spends a lot of time outdoors, in the mountains, I have seen a lot of the beauty of nature and the world around me. I have come to appreciate and love God's creations and the ability that I have to enjoy them and be a part of them. Seeing this wonderful world that our Heavenly Father has created for us to come live on has strengthened my testimony that there is a God and that he loves us more than we can comprhehend.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a missionary in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. I have the opportunity to serve for two years and teach people about Jesus Christ and His Gospel. I am so glad that I have this chance to bless the lives of my brothers and sisters. I am able to share my testimony of the Savior and other things that I know to be true with them and give them opportunities to test the truthfulness of this message for themselves through prayerfully reading the Book of Mormon.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is written by many ancient prophets that lived in the ancient Americas. These Holy men, just like other prophets in the Bible testified of Jesus Christ and of his life. These prophets exhort or encourage us to read their words "for they are the words of Christ" (2 Nephi 33:10-11). Show more Show less
