Hi I'm Brendan

I was born in Wyoming, but grew up in Idaho Falls, ID. I am a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. My major is horticulture, and boy do I love it! I love to garden and grow plants indoors. I have a small African Violet collection and an orchid collection. I also love animals. I come from a family of six children, and I am the fourth. When I was in High School, I was on a ballroom dance team and we competed at a national level. I also sang in choir and took voice lessons. I absolutely love to spend any time with my family that I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My parents even grew up in the church. But that does not mean that I am in the church because it is "what my parents did," or "what our family does." I go to church because I know that it is true. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I know that Jesus Christ lived and died for me. I know that He was resurrected and I know that He lives. I know that this is God's church and he leads it today. I know that through following the principles and doctrines taught in this church, I can be saved and live with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

Currently, in my college ward, I am a ward missionary. I get to go to Missionary Preparation class and I love it! I am also preparing to serve as a full time missionary for the Church. I will be serving in the Taiwan, Taichung mission for two years! I am so excited to share my testimony with those people in Taiwan.
