Hi I'm Brian Waldron

I grew up in Orange County, California. I have 11 siblings. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Brian and I have lived in California my whole life. I have attended high school and part of college here in California. I enjoy going to the beach, camping and all kinds of outdoor activities. I have played many sports including baseball, volleyball, soccer, basketball and football. At Chapman University, I have had the opportunity to play on the football team as a wide receiver. Other interests of mine include movies, traveling, surfing, singing and dancing.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have loved it. I feel that it has blessed my life and my family in so many ways. Throughout my life as a Mormon I have had many defining moments that have testified to me of the truthfulness of this church. Moments like getting baptized, receiving blessings and more recently my calling to become a missionary. In these moments I have experienced an incredible joy and spirit that is something I have never experienced and am convinced that it is the Lord testifying to me that He loves me and that he is pleased with my decision to be a member of His church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I try to participate as much as possible in my church. After returning home from college I have worked as an adviser for the youth, particularly the young men. I also am a home teacher for multiple families that live in my area that attend my church, meaning I visit these families and provide for any needs that they have and also share spiritual thoughts to uplift and strengthen them. I am currently living my faith by sharing it as a missionary in the Argentina Cordoba Mission.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Brian Waldron
Eternal life is returning again to live in the presence of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ after this life to enjoy all the blessing that they have prepared for us. It is a gift from our Heavenly Father that we will only recieve if we do all the things He has asked us to do. Eternal life is described as a "fulness of joy" and is what members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints desire for themselves, their families and all mankind. Show more Show less
