Hi I'm Bryson Caskey

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I am a firefighter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I love the outdoors. I love to hike, bike, run, and snowboard. Basically if I am not active I am not my best. I love hockey, it is a passion in life. I went to a year of Arizona State University and studied pre-med. My future plans are tied between being a firefighter like my dad or being a doctor, I can't decide! I do that I want to help people for a living and make a difference in my community. I worked for the Bureau of Land Management as a wildland firefighter and fought forest fires all across the Western United States. I love my family of 4 brothers and a sister and look up tremendously to my parents. My dad is my hero!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I know He loves me. I know that only by living and following His gospel can I recieve peace and happiness in this life and in the eternities to come. I am a Mormon because I know that through the prophet Jospeh Smith, Heavenly Father restored the true church exactly as Christ had set up while He was on the earth. Through Joseph Smith, the fullness of the gospel was restored along with the priesthood authority of Christ that He gave to His Apostles. I am a Mormon because I couldn't handle the trials of life without being a Mormon. Knowledge of Christ and His death for me and all of mankind as a source of forgiveness, hope, and peace for all who turn to Him with humility in their hearts is the only soothing solution to a world that has ever increasing problems. I am a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. I have read it. I have prayed about it. The Spirit has testified to me that it is true. I know that through obedience to God's commandments we can have peace, safety, true joy, and return to live with Him again after this life. I am a Mormon because I know families can be together forever, and that they continue after this life. I am a Mormon because I choose to be; and I love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a missionary for my church. I am serving for the next 2 years as a missionary in Warsaw, Poland speaking Polish. I love this gospel and hold it dear to all of my heart and that is why I decided to serve in Poland and bring the joy and happiness and peace that I feel on a daily basis to the wonderful people in Poland. I love it! While it does take some sacrifice to leave behind friends and family, I am so grateful for the opportunity to live my faith in this way by helping others come unto Christ. I live my faith by trying to be like Jesus, even when nobody is watching.
