Hi I'm Dalton Braathen

I grew up in Everett, Washington. I'm a college student, currently serving a LDS full time mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student at BYU-Provo, but am currently serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Texas. I love sports... and feel that College football is simply art in its purest form. I love the outdoors, fresh air, the rain, keeping busy, teasing/pestering my younger brother and sister. I'm single, started playing golf just prior to leaving on my mission. What a great mentally challenging game. Love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe the book of Mormon is the word of God, and that God and his son Jesus Christ are real. They speak to those who seek after them in righteousness . I am serving a mission because I believe these things to be true as I have felt them in my heart. The Gospel has made me a better person who strives to be better everyday. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us beyond our comprehension and have given a way to return with him. I have felt their power and the truthfulness of the church in my life, which has blessed me in so many ways.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission in San Antonio, Texas. I have always tried to live the way I believe and have found great blessings in doing so. I truly feel the freedom that comes when living a clean life, free of the addictions/habits friends have fallen to. I have found the easiest way to live one's live is to follow the commandments and live the standards the Gospel of Jesus Christ asks us to.
