Hi I'm Brant Reynolds

I am 19 years old, I'm from Arco Idaho, I love rodeo and football, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Brant Reynolds and i grew up in a small town in Idaho called Arco. While there I learned to love sports, especially rodeo and football! I am currently serving a mission for my Heavenly Father in the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia mission. I come from a big family of eight kids and two awesome parents where our relationship with our Heavenly Father was always the first priority. I love the mission life and helping others understand how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can bless them, just as it blessed my family and I.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I read the Book of Mormon and then prayed to our Heavenly Father to see if it was true. I recieved an answer by the power of the Holy Ghost that it was. I then knew that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, because how else could a man translate ancient egyptian writing unless he was given that power from God? Jesus Christ restored his only gospel through him in our day. After I recieved this knowledge from our Heavenly Father there is no way that I couldnt be a mormon. All I had to do was ask with sincerity and I was given an answer, and I KNOW that you can ask Heavenly Father through prayer to recieve your own answer too. Know it, Live it, Love it!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by inviting others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel through Faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, Repentance, Baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. As a missionary I talk with people about how they can find their purpose in life, and realize that Christ's Church is here on the Earth once again. I try to be an example of all the things that followers of Christ stand for and I am continually looking for ways to become a better person. This is a life-long challenge, but the joy that can come from this is eternal, and the blessings are miraculous and innumerable.

What is the priesthood?

Brant Reynolds
The Priesthood is the authority given to man, from God to act in his name. Jesus Christ was baptized by this authority showing all of us how important it is to be baptized by someone holding this authority. It was restored to the Earth through Joseph Smith. Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Brant Reynolds
The first vision is where Joseph Smith went into a grove of trees and prayed to our Heavenly Father to know which church was true. He saw a pillar of light exaclty over his head which descended gradually until it fell upon him...when the light rested upon him he saw two personages, who brightness and glory defy all description. One of them spoke to him calling him by name and said, pointing to the other, "this is my beloved son hear him. He saw God and his son Jesus Christ. Joseph was told that none of the churches were true, and that he would play a big roll in restoring the true Church of Jesus Christ to the Earth again. Show more Show less
