Hi I'm Braden Shields

Every day I see my dream.

About Me

In the Washington DC South Mission. I am from West Bountiful Utah. I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints since i was 8. I love to play and watch basketball, football, and soccer. I love my religion, my friends, and my family

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know that it is the true church. The Church has helped me in so many different ways in my life and I know that President Monson is a true Prophet and is called of God to serve us. I love this religion with all of my heart. The Spirit it brings to my life is a tremendous increase in the happiness of my day and week. I sit here and think every day, where would I be if I was not a Mormon? I know for sure that i would not be where i am today.

How I live my faith

Doing my best to live my life in harmony with the Lord, trying to help others feel the love that the Savior Jesus Christ has for them by serving the people here in Northern Virgina as a missionary and preaching His gospel. I also am committed to put Heavenly Father first in all things, as I base my decisions and plans around what He wants me to do I know I will be greatly blessed.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?
