Hi I'm Brandon Gowans

I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah and now live in southern Utah. I love to run and play basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. I love to play football and especially basketball. I ran Cross-Country in high school so I really love to run. I've completed a couple of half-marathons and one marathon and plan to do a lot more. My favorite professional teams are the Utah Jazz and Indianapolis Colts. I'm also a big BYU fan. I also like to hang out with my friends and love to laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have come to know the truthfulness of the Gospel. Our Savior Jesus Christ has helped me find the path to him. Once on this path, I finally found Christ and learned of his love for me and for all mankind. That feeling that I felt when I found Christ has changed my life. There isn't anymore room for doubt. The power of the Atonement is very real and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ want us all to return to him someday.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving the Lord in the Japan Nagoya Mission. Serving the Lord is the best! I have been able to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ bless the lives of other people. I have been preparing a long time to be able to represent Jesus Chrst and His church there is nothing better then being His representative. This is truely an incredible blessing. This church is true and there is no doubt in my mind that it is not true. God loves all of His children and He has provided a way for us all to live with Him someday. Living the teachings that He has set is what brings peace, love, joy, happiness, comfort and safety in this life and in the life to come. As I have lived the Gospel, I have been able watch my own life change and as a missionary, I can see the lives of others change and other incredible blessings that the Lord gives them. Living the doctirnes of the Gospel is a blessing and a privledge. As we live the teachings of Jesus Christ, we learn for ourselves the truthfulness of His words. Through the teachings of Christ, we can become like Him someday and for this life, right now, we can recieve more happiness then we can every imagine. I know that this church is true and the knowledge that I have is something that is very special to me. The Lord loves me and He loves you! Come unto Christ and partake of eternal life, the greatest of all the gifts of God.
