Hi I'm Zaq Brinkerhoff

I grew up in a vary small town in Utah. I love sports mostly football and wrestling, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the country and love it up there in the mountains. I like to hunt, fish, and just be out doors. I like shooting or making anything go boom! I love playing sports, I played football and I wrestled in high school. I like pretty much anything that will get my adrenaline pumping. I studied for two semesters at SUU.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but I was not active in the church for many years. While I was not active I let the worldly things over come me and by falling to temptations and worldly things I felt very alone and very unhappy with my life. I fell into a depretion and really didn't like how I was living my life. One of my really close friends actually was preparing to serve his mission, and he talked to me and encouraged me to go back to church and to straighten out my life. One night I couldn't sleep and having that lonely feeling eating away at me and weighing down on my heart. I relized I wasn't as strong as I thought I was, and I could not do this alone. So humbling myself I kneeled down and I prayed. By praying that night I felt God's love wrap around me. It washed over me and brought comfort to every part of my sole. I knew from this point on that know matter what we have done or what we may do. God's arms' are always open to us all we have to do is move forward to him. I get these same feelings as I read The Book of Mormon and ask God in prayer if it is true. I know this is an answer and that The Book of Mormon is true and by being true lets me know that this is what Christ wants me to do and this is his church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. I try to help people that need help and I just try to live in such a way that people will notice that I have a strong Faith in Jesus Christ.
