Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in a small town on top of the Mogollon rim in northeastern Arizona. I am a husband and father of two, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Anything that involves explaining who I am in any way always starts with my family, I am a very proud husband and father of two children. I love to play sports, especially soccer whenever I can find the time :). I am a first generation collage student and I just finished my first year of law school. Additionally, I am a recovering Harry Potter Addict, having read the series at least five times!

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint is the same church that Jesus Christ established here on earth thousands of years ago. I know that it was restored by a prophet of God, and that since it was restored it always has been, including the current president and prophet of the church today Thomas S. Monson. Perhaps more importantly I know the feeling in my heart, that of pure joy, and peace, that never fails to consume me, as I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith on my sleeve as I go about my day to day existence here on earth. My biggest hope is that the people I come in contact with will be able to see and feel the love and warmth that the spirit provides me on a day to day basis. My faith does not simply exist on sunday. My faith is not a noun, it is an action verb. My faith carries me to many events, service projects throughout the week, and on sundays I am also blessed to teach children (both young and old) about the wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I get to know my heavenly father best when I realize that I am willing to accept whatever insight he is going to give me when I ask fervently. Many times in my past life I begged and pleaded for answers that were only self serving, rather than asking for the truth. Today I am happy to say that my prayers ask for more truth, self service.
