Hi I'm Brayden Chamberlain

I love my family. I am happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play sports, such as basketball, baseball, football and soccer. I also like to do outdoor activities; I love to go hiking, swimming, boating, running and camping. I often watch movies, and I even like to read and play video games every once in a while. I served a full-time, LDS mission in Veracruz, Mexico where I learned Spanish and (more importantly) made many wonderful friends and had many meaningful spiritual experiences. Currently I am a Junior in college, studying full-time in Biology. I also work part-time cleaning up construction sites. And, to top it off, I have a lovely wife and a baby on the way. I am loving life!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a member of the LDS church? To be as straight-forward as possible, it is because I know this church is true. Nothing else gives me greater comfort and peace than this gospel. I will admit that in the past, doubt has crept into my mind concerning the church. However, in every instance, as I asked in faith through prayer to God, and pleaded to know if this was the one true church, confirmation came. My Heavenly Father, through the Holy Ghost has always reassured and comforted me in my times of trial. Beyond that powerful witness, as I have studied more into the doctrine I have realized how misplaced my doubts were in the first place. This is the true church of Jesus Christ, and He is at the helm.

How I live my faith

There is a common calling in the church of which I love to be a part. This calling is Home Teaching. In this assignment, the member is given families in the area which he/she will specifically watch over and be ready to help should the need arise. There have been many instances in which the families I have been given have called upon me for help. Gladly, I can answer that call. Most often, I find that when I am trying to help, I am the one who benefits most. Giving service to my fellow members of the community not only strengthens my relationships, but my faith as well. Truly, joy is found in the service of others. As Christ himself said, (paraphrased) a saint is one who will mourn with those that mourn, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort.
