Hi I'm Barratt

I grew up in Utah. I ran my own business. I love serving others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20. I love to play Bass. I play the classical bass as well as the electric guitar. when i was About 16 i started my own business detailing cars. The Idea of it was that I could do something that would eventually get to the point where i could do very little to operate it. Then when I get older and have a family of my own i can spend time with them and be able to be a good parent while also making sure that i was providing for them. I have gone through trials in life such as my parents devorcing. As I see more and more families getting devorced it brings up memories of things that happened in my childhood that forced my parents apart. Looking back the whole process was not as bad as i had imagined it would be. then i realized why. I as a 12 year old boy knew where to find comfort in times of trial. I knew my father in heaven. I knew and still do know that he loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because i choose to be. There was a time where i did doubted everything that i knew. Even after having every chance to walk away i didn't. The things that i understand from being a member of the true church of christ bring me such peace and comfort. There will be times in everyones lives where they will doubt something that deep down inside they know is right. Christ knew that he had to suffer for our sins and that it was the only way yet he still asked god if there was some other way. I still question things that i learn and time and time again god answers my prayers letting me know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is his church here on this earth. Life is the time where we get to experience emotion and feeling. We need to listen to our feelings and think with our heart.

How I live my faith

How do i live my faith? I had a choice to make at 19. I had a business that was just starting to really pick up. I had a wonderful family and lots of amazing friends. I had everything that i could have ever imagined. I am currently serving a mission in Iowa. I left all of those things back home and even had to shut down my business. I live my faith by doing what is right and living the best that i can. I live my faith by helping others see the truth and the love that this gospel has to offer. Serving has given me the opportunity to get to know so many of gods children and really understand why we are here.
