Hi I'm Braden

I was born and raised in Idaho & Utah. I have four sisters. I'm constantly converting. I'm a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

I'm currently serving as a missionary for the Church. I've attended college on scholarship in Utah before my mission. I love sports- I played soccer, football, and basketball. I used to be a hardcore gamer, mostly shooter and MMORPG. I'm the 2nd of 5 children, the only son... it can be pretty crazy at times. Family is very important to me. I'm very ambitious and competitive. I'm also somewhat of a perfectionist. Oh, it really sucks to be a perfectionist in this fallen world!

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't always a Mormon. I used to be pretty agnostic. I wanted logical proof and evidence to believe. But later in life I learned that the proof and evidence was there, I just needed to search for it. The more I looked into the Church, it's teachings, the more I found it to be in harmony with science, the more I found it to make "sense". Then, after study, and applying the teachings of the Church, I began to fill the hole in my soul. I began to feel more complete and happy. I call that feeling, the Holy Spirit. The Spirit accompanies all truth and gives you a feeling, or an impression that's hard to miss. So first, my conversion came logically, and then it became spiritual.

How I live my faith

I'm currently a full-time minister of the gospel, also called a missionary. I live my faith by sharing it with others. I strongly believe that you grow in faith and testimony when you share it. A lot of people don't have faith or a testimony of the gospel. I strongly recommend getting one, it will save you... in many different ways. The best way, I believe, to increase faith and gain a testimony is to LIVE the teachings of Jesus Christ. By doing this, you will FEEL the Spirit (love, joy, peace, happiness, etc.) and then you will KNOW with assuredy that Jesus is the Son of God, and His gospel is the way to eternal life.
