Hi I'm David Bresnahan

I love music, singing, the outdoors, spending time with my friends, trying crazy new things and of course my Family! I'm a Mornon

About Me

I am from New Hampshire! Which is like the best state ever! It was hard to live there because one I lived a town and most people there never heard of or knew any Mormons before. It was had at first, but it gave me the chance to learn how to stand up for my own believes and the things that I knew were right. Growing up I was home schooled until I started High School. I have played Baseball all through high school, and I also found one of my great loves which is Music and Singing! I was in my schools top choirs for two years. I am also starting to learn to play piano, violin, and guitar. Right before I graduated High School my world turned upside down. It seemed like everything with family and friends started to go wrong, Like a almost splitting of my family, some family passing away, and a very close friend take his own life. The only way I think that I was able to get through it all though was by holding strong to the gospel and the things I knew were true. That our heavenly Father is always there. With his help we have been able to over come the hard times and feel his love even stronger in our lives. In my life I have done a lot in the Boy Scouts. I think of my self as a Black Smith. I love The Lord of the Rings and know almost everything about it. (no joke) I have been going to Salt Lake Community College for a year and I am hopping a doctor one day. I have my own changes, like everyone does. I am just so grateful for this gospel and for the peace it gives me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church so a lot of peple say that that is why you are a mormon, but I really was not a real mormon till I started to live it. I know that the scriptures and the church asks us to live a certain way but that is not why I do it, I do it because this is what I want to do, this is the life I want and the happy, peacefull, life that I want my family to have when I am married. I have so many relitives that die from smocking and things and that is not what I want. When I was 14 I hit the point in my life that I could not rely on my parents testimony anymore. I had to learn for my self if this church really was true. I started to read more and more from the Book of Morman. I started for the first time in my life to look to see if this was the one true church. I did not come to know that this church was true all at once, but by reading and praying I did learn and felt, truly felt in my heart that this church is the church that Jesus Christ set up on the earth when he lived here, and that it has once again been restored to the earth by Joseph Smith. Who saw God the Father and Jesus Christ. I am Happy! Even in the hardest times of my life I had feelings of happiness, and that I truly was a Child of God and that He loves me and is always there for me. It gives me so much happiness that I now want to share it with as many people as I can. It is like if you taste the best ice cream in the world and it is free for everyone! Would you keep it for yourself? Or share it?

How I live my faith

I love being LDS. Right now I am serving a 2 year mission for my church in Portland Oregon! I am loving every second of it it. I try to in all the things I do to be an example of what I believe and know is true. You never know who might be watching your example and how you might change their life by the way you live. That is that is one thing that helped my father to join the church, Just by watching others examples.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

David Bresnahan
Temple are used to seal our familys to be together forever. When I think of the next life I can not even think of heaven being heaven with out my family there with me. Ya you might have those days that you cant stand some peopl in your family, but I do love them and want them to be with me forever. Being together can only happen when we are obidient to our Heavenly Father and we make the promises to him in the Temple. For me making these promises to Him is one what I want in my life and how I want to live but also is a very small price to ask for all the things that He has done for us, and will do.
