Hi I'm Braxton

I'm a Mormon. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and I know it to be true.

About Me

I love playing any type of sports or any outdoor activity. I am 18 years old. I am called to serve a mission in the Spain Málaga Mission. I like doing anything with my hands or figuring out why things are done a certain way. I want to push the boundaries and make sure it is the most effective way it could possibly be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true church. I know that everything taught within this church is true. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that this gospel is true because I have prayed to God, communicated with him and I got an answer to my many questions. It did not come easily or without any effort, but I know that this Gospel is true. I have grown up in the Gospel. I have never been out of this church to see if any other church is teaching things that are right. I have gone to different churches because of something happening with a friend of a different faith. I love those people in those different churches, but I know, without question, that what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is teaching proves that it is the only true church on this earth. There is not any doubt that I have about this church, and I know you can receive that testimony too.

How I live my faith

I do a lot of things within my community. I do a lot of service projects with my ward. Whether it be mowing lawns, shoveling snow, really anything that needs to be done for the elderly or the disabled. I try to be as available as possible to be reached by anyone that may need to get a hold of me. I go visit families within my ward and teach them a few things about the gospel and just check up on them and make sure they are doing alright.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

The purpose of this law of health is to keep us healthy. These things have actually been proven that they cause many problems later in life. You may be worried about why coffee and tea are on the list. You might be saying that these things don't cause health problems. You may be right or wrong, I personally am not a doctor and do not know for sure. What I do know is that it is a commandment given to me from God. Because this commandment is from God, I simply do not do it. I know this church to be true, so if you find out that this Gospel is true, which I know you can and should find out through prayer, you will obey the commandment simply because God said so.
