Hi I'm Brock

I'm a lifeguard and swim teacher and I save lives for a living. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved around a lot as a child. Being born in California. Raised in Arizona. And ended up in Utah?!?! I participated in many school activities including football, swimteam, soccer, basketball, scouts, musical instruments and so on.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I recieved a personal spiritual witness for myself that Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ love me as an individual. And from his love I've realized the plan that they've had for me by studying their words in the Book of Mormon. My faith just grows more everyday and I love being part of a world-wide community with the same goal in mind... Coming unto Christ.

How I live my faith

I was a leader amungst my peers, called to help plan and see that activities are carried out as planned while making people happy and pleasing the lord at the same time. I was also was a teacher over specific families in our area and enjoyed learning the families and watching them grow and learning to love them.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Brock
It's said, in the church, that the most important work is done within the walls of the home. Families are forever. One of the few things, that we can still have, after death (if we are worthy) is our families. In our home much is taught and learned, but also much can be taken away from a home and thus the members that reside therein. This allows for not only great things to happen, but also can cause and lead to the corruption of relationships in the home. This way of destroying families is one of Satan's plans and tools, because if Satan can destroy those relationships within the home, he's destroyed a family that was meant for heaven.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Brock
The first thing that testifies of God, is the literal world around me. I've remmembered days, just looking at the trees in the fall. The leaves are all changing and it looks like fire spread across the mountain-side! As a student of science, I can understand the chemical reactions that occur to cause these changes. But how does something that doesn't have a brain, tell its own extremeties, to give its life giving necessities back to the main body so the whole of the tree can live on through the winter? Well, I know that by God's power, the earth was created, and grows according to his desires. As I've seen his power around me in the world I've also began to notice his hand in my own life. I've been able to truly see his love for me. A personal experience is that I was at an all-you-can-eat buffet. I was walking around and at the little stations there was some chinese food, and mexican food at another, but I just had this desire for some mashed potatoes. So I prayed and asked God if he'd help me find some mashed potatoes. As I walked to the last area of this room there was just an open "left-over" area where things not eaten from the day before would go. And just as I get there, I found a pan of some old rice. I look away dissapointed and thinking of my other options. Then a man walks through the door carrying a giant tray of mashed potatoes and sets it down right in front of me! It was just so evident that there is a God, and he was listening to me and my prayer. Show more Show less
