Hi I'm Bryson Pettitt

I'm an artist, a two-time missionary who loves roller coasters, playing video games, and the guitar; I'm a DJ, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have had many experiences that pull me to do this or that. But what I love doing the most, is doing something that takes a really long time. I am an artist at heart. I love to sculpt in many mediums; my favorite is paper. I've been folding origami since before I was in school. However, I didn't understand it until I was in middle school. I like to claim that I can make anything out of a single sheet of paper without cutting it. The only issue is how long it will be before I finally give the sculpture to the person who challenged me. I plan on using this artistic talent to create my own Video Games. The way you can combine story with sculpture in a video game setting is outstanding. However, I am also being pulled to want to be involved with sound. I was in a tech crew in high school for two years working sound and lighting. I then began to DJ outside of school, and have continued DJing even up until now. I enjoy being able to entertain crowds of people with sound and lights for all types of events; dances, plays, rallies, etc. I'm still trying to find a way to combine all of these aspects into one huge goal without spoiling any of it.

Why I am a Mormon

It's interesting how the Lord teaches us. I served for a year in the Raleigh, North Carolina Mission prior to serving in Vegas. It was a time of humbling. I was very hard headed and selfish about most things. I had a basic understanding that the gospel was true, but it didn't phase me as much as it should have. But the Lord knows what is best for his children. I was about six months into my mission when my asthma really began acting up. The longer I was exposed to humidity, the allergies, and the mold; the more I felt I was powerless. It was when I felt this powerlessness that I began pray more earnestly for things I needed. It was at this time I grew closer to my Father in Heaven through prayer. It was also at this time I desired to be on a mission for the right reasons. I asked my Heavenly Father to help me gain my strength to be a better, more effective missionary. But as time went on, my asthma got worse. I was seeing many doctors, and the work for me was slowing down. Eventually, after being in North Carolina for a year, I was sent home to recover. I was disappointed. I felt as though I was abandoned. It wasn't long after being home that I began to breathe better. I was eventually able to work up the lung power to jog and to ride a bike. It was through these experiences that I was able to grow spiritually closer to God than I ever was. Eventually, I was able to re-apply for a mission. I am now currently serving in the Las Vegas, Nevada Mission. The experiences I've had serving the Lord (in the mission as well as at home), has brought my understanding of the gospel to a new light. Through prayer, scripture study, and living the gospel; I know this work and this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as a servant of the Lord. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Las Vegas, Nevada Mission. I help those who stand in need of support. I teach those who desire to know the truth. I love this work, and I know it is true.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Bryson Pettitt
A testimony is a confirmation that follows a change of Heart given to an individual by the Holy Spirit. It is a foundation, steadfast and immovable. A testimony is gained by someone who is teachable and is willing to learn, and strives to keep learning. Someone can always share a testimony, however, it can't be divided among others. Everybody must build their own testimony. If we choose to share our testimony, it will shine brighter than before, giving us a further foundation to what we find to be true. Show more Show less
