Hi I'm Porter Steven Brown

my name is Porter Brown i grew up in Utah. Soon i will be leaving on my mission to Scotland/Ireland. i am a Mormon.

About Me

i love playing basketball. i played basketball for my high school for 4 years. i just attended Utah Valley University this fall. i love going hunting with my dad for whatever. its nice just to spend quality time with him. i really enjoy going to church and learning about how to become a great missionary. i love going out with my friends and doing fun things.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a mormon because i know that everything is true. i know its true because the spirit has born witness to me that it is true. i have been a memeber of the church my whole life. but i really didnt know that it was true till i was listening to someone in my ward bear there testimony about the savior and the church and the spirit bore witness unto me that the things that they were saying were true. after that i knew when the spirit was telling me when something was true. i recently just finished reading the Book of Mormon and when i prayed about it i knew that it was true. i knew that Joseph Smith translated the Book through the power of god. i know that a big part of the church is having faith. when you aren't for sure if something is true or not. if you have faith that it is and believe in it. soon enough the spirit will tell you that it is true and you can be sure of it. i know that the priesthood is again restored on the earth today. i have felt it and i know that it has blessed me and members of my family. i know that it is the power of god and it is so important to have in our day. i love my savior Jesus Christ and am so grateful for him and for his great sacrifice so that i may return to live with him.

How I live my faith

i was on the city council for a year and it was really fun going around and doing service for people that really needed it. i was just recently 2nd concealer in my priest quorum. i had really great friends grow up with me in the church and they were very supportive of me. i am also a hometeaching companion with my father. its really good to go out and just share important things to people you teach. it helps them remember and think about what they can do in there lives to be better. its also cool to look at how we can apply the messages in our own lives as well.
