Hi I'm Brian Jensen

I am born and raised in Las Vegas Nevada. I like my Wife, kids UNLV Runnin Rebel Basketball and Music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I went to Curitiba Brazil on a 2 year Church Mission. I loved it! I really love music, especially hearing live music. I love being married to my wife. My greatest joy along with being a father. I wasn't always active in participating in my Church. I think being nice, easy going and understanding is a key element to a happy world. I had a wonderful childhood. So I am really drawn to those who did not. I am a big fan of the UNLV Rebel basketball team. I like the St Louis Rams in football. I speak English and Brazilian Portuguese. I think talking about religion and the origins of mankind is fascinating.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon. I have studied out the Doctrines that the Mormon religion teaches. I have prayed to Heavenly Father and felt with surety that he exists and knows that I exist. I have lived the Mormon teachings and felt direct responses from God in my life. I have lived in a way that wasn't following its teachings and didn't feel the same in my life. Nor did life go as well also. I have prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true, and to know if Joseph Smith really did see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. And all that I can say is that he answered me by the power of his Spirit. The more I look at what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has become, is doing, and is, the more I cannot deny the Jesus Christ is directing the affairs of His Church through a living Prophet.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I serve and have served in various callings throughout my life in the church. I try to live what I profess to believe. I try and be nice, caring, understanding and helpful to all people. I try and do what I truly believe that God wants me to do. I think one of the most important ways to live a truly God like life is to treat my Wife and children with the utmost of respect, love and importance possible.

What is the priesthood?

Brian Jensen
The Priesthood is the actual authority from God to act in his name. Acting officially in his name would include performing crucial ordinances like Blessing the Sacrament and Baptizing people. When the acts are performed by one who has True Priesthood authority, the acts are recognized and approved by God. Show more Show less
