Hi I'm Brian Sloan

I grew up in Redcliff, Alberta. I'm an aspiring teacher. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm currently at university studying to become a French teacher. I love languages and taught English when I was a missionary in Italy. That's where I discovered my love for both languages and teaching! I am trilingual (or 2.5. right now as I still consider myself learning French) and can't wait to learn more throughout life! I enjoy spending time in the mountains and seeing all of God's beautiful creations. I'm also a huge sports fan from basketball, hockey, soccer, really anything!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I want to be! I have witnessed the joy and peace that the teachings of Christ have brought in my life and in the lives of those around me and I want it for the rest of my life and in the lives of future generations. I have studied and prayed about the teachings from prophets both modern day and ancient and know that they have been inspired of God. The knowledge of God's plan of salvation has brought me a peace and comfort that is hard to explain. Knowing where I've come from, my purpose here on earth, and what happens after this life gives me courage and hope. At times this knowledge is taken for granted but every time I actually consider how much God does love us, I am overwhelmed with emotion. I know He loves us, and I know that Jesus Christ, His son, loves us and died for us. And it is through His sacrifice that we can obtain forgiveness and help in this mortal life. This knowledge is why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being an example to those around me. I help plan activities, help the missionaries, and talk to those associate I with about my beliefs!
