Hi I'm Brad

I'm a college student attending Brigham Young University, I'm serving a 2-year mission for my church, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm attending Brigham Young University. I have attended for one year. I haven't chosen a major yet, but I'm considering computer science. I love board games and card games of nearly all varieties. The more strategy is involved, the better! Reading is an incredible way for me to escape from the everyday stress. Anything that will get me thinking deeply about something will do. I was on the math team in high school - I placed in the top ten individuals in the Utah state math contest a couple times. What I love most about math is how everything relates to each other. Everything we experience has a pattern to it that relates to another pattern, and so on. There are connections we never think about, or even notice, and the more I learn about math, the more of these I can see. It's truly amazing and beautiful. I'm currently serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a family that were all faithful members of the Church. I attended with them, read the scriptures, and enjoyed the experience, but for a long time I wasn't certain that the message was true. It made sense to me intellectually, and I sincerely believed it was true, but I didn't truly know or feel it in my heart. Yes, I had felt something good many times, but there was no sense of peace or certainty. However, as I have prayed and asked God to know, I have received that witness from the Holy Ghost. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true, restored church of God. It is led by a living prophet, through whom Christ leads His church. The Book of Mormon, together with the Bible, contain the fulness of the gospel, and through the teachings of these books and the living prophets we can know the way back to God's presence. I know these things to be true, and I testify of them in the name of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, I am taking two years out of my life to share the joy, peace, and love I have felt through Christ and His message. I left many things behind, but it is more than worth it to serve Jesus Christ. He is my Savior and Redeemer, and I will do all that I can to share this message with everyone I meet.
