Hi I'm Braedon Cook

I love all that classic rock, I'm a believer that there will be ice cream in Heaven, I'm a missionary for Jesus, and I'm a MORMON!

About Me

I was born and raised in the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. My life has been so richly blessed with three brothers and two sisters, and wonderful parents, all of whom mean a great deal to me. I graduated from High School in June 2012 and then attended one semester at Southern Utah University. I'm a very outdoor engaged person. I love to ski, water ski, wake-board, mountain bike, hike, trail run, camp, and hang with the ladies. The outdoors is really where I am mostly myself. I love to see the beautiful world, its living proof of a Supreme Creator. I love all my wonderful friends. I love movies and long nights of stargazing and campfires. I'm a very typical guy who loves to live life and whenever possible share my talents because it makes me feel like I have self worth. I'm grateful for my unique gifts and personality. I love to connect with people and build friendships.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Well, you could say I was born into it. I didn't know any different. I was never converted to it. It was just the normal thing to do. But in my latter years I've learned for myself that I am a Mormon because I want to be. I have seen the blessings that come from it. I know that what I know is true. Without a shadow of a doubt. There is a peace and a comfort and a literal joy that comes from being a Mormon. Its not temporary happiness, its not a materialistic happiness. I live a very simplistic lifestyle, living to the truths of the LDS church and I know that it is true, all of it. It is real, it is amazing, and Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and I have learned for myself that these things are true.

How I live my faith

I've always been very involved in my religion I held several youth leadership positions and I believe in the church's youth programs, I've seen the power that comes from it, and it helped me become who I am today. I am currently serving a mission in the big SCCM!(South Carolina Columbia Mission). Its the best decision I have ever made. There is no better way to build my faith than to share it with the people of South Carolina. I try my best to do all things with a happy heart and an eye single to the glory of god. He gave us everything so I'm going to give him my all. Jesus Christ is my savior and I love him and his restored gospel with every fiber of my being.
