Hi I'm Brennon

I build robots, I program computers, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a high school graduate, and am serving a mission before attending college. My big hobby is the FIRST Robotics Competition, which I participated in as a high school competitor by helping to design, manufacture, and operate robots that played a game. I hope to help mentor and volunteer with after college to give other students the opportunities that have been afforded me.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a testimony of the Gospel. The evidence in my life is overwhelming. I've had countless miracles in my life come in response to prayers and personal needs. I've felt a tiny portion of the love that my Heavenly Father has for me as I've come to Him in prayers and earnestly sought the answers to tough questions and life situations. I've felt of the Spirit as I've earnestly searched and pondered the scriptures. I know of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon -- the book is true, was translated by a prophet of God, and truthfully witnesses of Christ's divine role and ministry among the children of men. I cannot deny the truth of this Gospel.

How I live my faith

As a Priest in the Aaronic Priesthood, I help to administer the sacrament, an ordinance that is performed every Sunday in our churches. I help to set the altar, bless the bread and water, and then clean up after the meeting. I also have been called to serve members of our congregation as a home teacher. I currently visit four families in our area with my home teaching companion on a monthly basis and prepare a spiritual message. It's been a blessing to serve these families in any way I can -- I've brought the sacrament to the home of a member who was recovering from back surgery and helped to pressure wash the house of another member. Bit I also live my faith in quiet ways. I don't swear, take the Lord's name in vain, and abstain from tea, coffee, tobacco, and alcohol. I don't shop on Sundays, out of respect for the sacredness of the Sabbath. And I'm always quick to share my faith and beliefs with friends or those I meet.
