Hi I'm Bradley Schnell

I love the Outdoors, my Family, the Georgia Atlanta Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a missionary currently serving in the Georgia, Atlanta mission. I love being here for two great years to serve our Father in Heaven and to learn and grow while being here. When at home I enjoy doing many things indoor and outdoors such as; camping, hiking, fishing, water sports, snow sports, rock climbing, cayoneering, volleyball, basketball, and many others. I guess over all I just do not like being idol! However I do enjoy also sitting back and enjoying a good movie with friends or playing some good board games. I grew-up in the northern parts of California but the last 4-5 years of my life I moved to Highland Utah with family before I headed out for a mission. I love the gospel in my life and I can see how it has shaped and molded me throughout my childhood to grow up and have the talents and the abilities to make me a stronger and better person.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because simply I have come to know that this gospel is true. There have been times that I have lived out in the world going to and fro looking for happiness. I found it in many “fake” ways as I went about and there seemed always to be something missing. There was always that little angel on my shoulder that kept telling me that I needed to go to church. Finally when I decided to heed that message, I started to find the happiness that I had been looking for. I started to once again feel like I was at home as I had not felt for so many years. I know that this gospel is true because I have felt the love our Father in Heaven as I have been here. We are each children of God and He wants us to be happy. This gospel points us in the ways that allow our Father to teach us how to find true happiness and how to one day return to Him.

How I live my faith

By fully consecrating and giving my life at this time I show my love and loyalty for the Lord. I show my faith in this way as I go about my days helping others and growing my own spirit and testimony. I am a firm believer that we must first convert ourselves before we can hope to be a part of converting others. There have been periods in my life where I have not lived in the faith as I should have, however as I have come to a better knowledge of the Atonement and the sacrifice of our Lord, I have seen my life be more full and happy as I live within the gospel of Jesus Christ. By taking the days one at a time and showing loyalty for the Lord as I go out I am an example of the believers and show my faith that I believe in God.
