Hi I'm Brody Lars

I'm a student and a small business owner, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently a college student right now, going to school to get my degree in finance. Besides school, I work as a real estate agent and own a lawn care company. Some of my strengths would be that I am tall and can reach high things, I have a huge mouth which is big enough to fit twenty grapes, and like a fruit ninja I can cut fruit midair with a machete. Some of my weakness are that I am allergic to cats, I hate snakes, and I suck at eating crab legs.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because everything good that has happened in my life has come from being a Mormon. I can't even begin to explain how blessed I have been in my life. The biggest blessing that I can think of is knowing who Jesus Christ is, and what I need to do to draw closer to Him. The way that I have been able to know what I need to do is by listening to God's living Prophet, Thomas Monson. I think it is so awesome that God would continue to call prophets today just like He did back in the Bible times. Another reason I am a Mormon is because I have read The Book of Mormon and then prayed and asked God if it was truly scripture. When I prayed and asked God that question He answered me with a very strong yes and I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. It has made such a big difference in my life by helping me draw closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

The best way that I know of to live my faith is by looking everyday for ways to help other people. I have noticed that when I make it a priority in my life that I always have an opportunity come up where I can help someone. Whether it is giving someone a ride, helping someone with homework, or sending an uplifting text. Another way I live my faith is by going and visiting with people from my local congregation. I get to go and check up on them to make sure they are doing all right and share with them a spiritual thought. I have also found that I can live my faith by having a positive attitude. Everybody has their good days and their bad days, but having faith in Jesus Christ has helped me realize that the bad days won't last forever. I know that through Jesus Christ we can overcome anything that comes our way.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Brody Lars
YES! As I look back throughout the history of the world I can't think of a time where we would need a prophet more than we do now. God has always called prophets to lead and guide His children closer to the Savior and happiness. Today God has called Thomas Monson to be His chosen prophet. I know that Thomas Monson is a prophet because I have listened to him speak and I know that he is speaking for the Lord. I know that he is speaking for the Lord because I have followed his guidance and it has helped me have a happier more peaceful life. Show more Show less
