Hi I'm Brady

I'm a Naval Officer, a lifelong adventurer, a dancer, a husband, and a Mormon.

About Me

Reading, playing, hanging out - I love it all. Technology is my friend. My friends and I love to go on adventures - whether it's spending the weekend enjoying a national park or hanging out together just talking and playing games, we always love to have fun. Ballroom dancing is a passion for me - I'm in my 16th year of dancing competitively, and I love it. After college, I joined the US Navy to become a Naval Flight Officer. I've done a little bit of everything.

Why I am a Mormon

As a college student, a lot of different things can come up unexpectedly - usually when you least expect it. My faith helps me overcome these unexpected challenges. I've grown up in the LDS church surrounded on both sides by people who have chosen to do what the church teaches and by those who have not. The differences in their respective lives has been a huge influence to me and why I choose to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. During my life, as a child and as a full-time church mission in Russia, I have seen first how difficult it can be to embrace the teachings of the Savior. But I have also seen how rewarding and incredible the blessings are to those who do. The Gospel makes life easier, happier, and gives me hope in a better tomorrow.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm a teacher in my ward - something that I love. Being able to study the Gospel of Jesus Christ and help others understand it is something I wish I could do more of. Helping neighbors whenever they need it - helping in the garden, with broken sprinklers, cleaning houses, whatever they need - is a source of happiness that I hope never goes away. I try to follow the Savior's example in interactions with others, striving to gain patience and spiritual strength. While never easy, the more I try, the more I feel the Savior helping me, and it gives me hope to keep trying.

Are Mormons Christians?

Absolutely! Christians believe in and strive to be like Jesus Christ, our Savior. Mormons believe that Christ is our Savior and our Redeemer! Through His atonement, all of us can be saved if we do what the Apostles of old did and follow Him and His example. Show more Show less
