Hi I'm Brynden

I'm a Spanish Speaking Redhead, I'm a Convert, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Brynden, I'm from Idaho and I love this gospel. I'm a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I've been a member for about 4 years now. I'm currently serving a mission in the Lousiana Baton Rouge mission and I love it. There is nothing like bringing the hope I have received from the gospel and the atonement of Christ to others, it's definitely the best calling in the world. Oh yeah, and I LOVE to make people smile/laugh!

Why I am a Mormon

Why not would be my question! But I can sum it up in 10 sentences. #1 Because I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, The Eternal Father #2 Because I believe families are ordained of God and the relationships extend far beyond the grips of mortality #3 Because I believe the same power and authority Jesus Christ gave his Apostles has been restored to the earth in our day for the blessing of the lives of the children of God #4 Because I believe God lives and loves us and cares what we do with our lives, because He wants us home again, so he provided us with a prophet, our a mouthpiece who is authorized to receive revelation for the church and I believe through his guidance, we will return again! #5 Because I believe in the Bible, and I believe it is an amazing book of scripture and I owe my life to the testimony of the Bible I have, but I don't believe it can contain every single word God ever spoke or ever will speak. I believe God will reveal new scripture with time #6 Because I believe God loves us enough to answer our prayers... in fact, he loves us so much that he answered a 14 year old farm boy's question about which church he should go to, and through that boy he restored the Church of Jesus Christ back to the earth. #7 Because I don't believe in "Sunday Only Churches" in fact, I believe the pathway to true discipleship is 24/7 for the rest of your life, and I believe that we should let our lights shine to the whole world! #8 Because I believe in a God who loves us so much that he created us in His own image and has made it possible for us to become as He is #9 Because I understand that through grace (or the enabling power of the atonement) I can do all things in which I'm commanded #10 Because the Gospel of Jesus Christ has changed my life forever.

How I live my faith

Since becoming a member of the church, Sundays have never been the same. They've become days for service and rest. As part of my preparation for missionary work, I woud go with the missionaries and help them teach those who are curious about our faith, as I once was. Service is the greatest part of the church, because after all, when you're serving your fellow man, you're only in the service of your God! Serving others through my callings gives me peace of mind and helps me feel as if I'm helping to change the world bit by bit, even if it is by sending a silly text to someone in our ward that makes them smile! I also love enjoying to go to the temple near my hometown quite regularly! I love how much I feel the Spirit inside, and how close to my Heavenly Father I feel. It's a building set apart from the world, it is definitely the House of the Lord!
