Hi I'm Braden

I love playing basketball and having fun. I believe that life is too short to worry. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a small town guy from New Mexico who enjoys sports (especially basketball!) and anything in the great outdoors. I like going hunting and fishing with my dad and brothers. I am currently enjoying serving a full-time mission in Pennsylvania.

Why I am a Mormon

My family have always been members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I choose to follow the example of Jesus Christ and live His gospel because of the great effects that it has had in my life. By living the Gospel of Jesus Christ I have come to know for myself that our Father in Heaven loves us, and that he knows us personally. Also, I recently found out the meaning of the word "gospel" which means "good news." I have come to know in my life through repentance and developing a personal relationship with my Savior that the Gopel of Jesus Christ or the "good news" that allows us to more fully come unto Christ and be liberated of any feelings of guilt, shame, or remorse.

How I live my faith

My current calling in the church is a full-time missionary; I am giving two years and dedicating them to the Lord and His work. I get the opportunity to share a unique message that can help people develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and grow closer to Him by living His teachings. I decided to serve a mission ultimately because of the things I have been given and forgiven of. At this point in my life the best way to say "Thank You" and it still doesn't begin to show the thanks that should be given. I know that I am not perfect but with Christ's help I can continually improve myself and my weaknesses.
