Hi I'm Bryce

I'm from a small town in Arizona. I am a college student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I consider myself to be a happy, friendly, and honest young man. I enjoy spending time with my family. I have five sisters and two brothers. Many people ask what it's like living in such a big family, and I always let them know that if it were any smaller the house would feel empty. I'm pretty laid back. I enjoy living every day one at a time and not having a plan for every moment. I have many interests. I like almost any kind of sport. Whether I'm just watching or playing I find them fun. I also like spending time outside, and doing things like camping, fishing, swimming and riding wave runners at the lake.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! It does not matter what challenges and heart ache I have felt in my life I have always been able to turn to my Heavenly Father and receive the comfort and guidance I needed. This church has shown me that I have a purpose to live. Being a Mormon has brought me closer to Jesus Christ our savior. I t has taught me that through Christ I can have an eternal life. For me this is an amazing knowledge to have because I know that the relationships I have with my family won't end because of death. Jesus Christ is at the center of my life because he is the foundation of this church. Without the gospel and example of Jesus Christ I would not be truly happy because I would not have a knowledge of my purpose on this earth.

How I live my faith

To live my faith I do just that I live. A quote I saw at a feed store in my hometown says, "The best sermons are lived not preached." The moment I read this it became one of my favorite sayings because I have always believed that one must lead by example, and if you are out doing the things you learn at church on Sunday everyday then the people who you come in contact with will know what you believe. One of the best ways I know how to live my faith is to serve because when you are serving the people around you. You are serving God. Service can be big or small, but what is important to me is that each day I do at least one thing for someone other than myself.
