Hi I'm Brennan

I grew up in Hawaii, am working for a degree in exercise science and hope to go to medical school.

About Me

My only true hobby is exercise. I enjoyrunning and powerlifting (non-competitive). Outside of this, I like to read, play video games, or spend time with family and friends. When I'm hanging with others, whether they be family or friends, I like watching movies, going to the beach, cruising just about anywhere, playing board and card games, and almost anything else if I'm with the right people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is the true church. This knowledge didn’t come to me suddenly. I cannot pin my testimony to a single earth shattering event. But I can tell you when my testimony started. I was born in the church and spent my first years believing the gospel simply because my parents told me it was true. Before I was baptized, my parents urged me to gain a testimony of my own. “Pray about it,” they said. So I did and I received an unmistakable witness from the Holy Ghost. A peaceful, certain, and unwavering answer that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was all true and that living the gospel was what God desired for me. Throughout my life I prayed multiple times, asking the same questions, "Is the Book of Mormon true?" and "Is this the true church?" and the answer is always the same. YES. This knowledge gives me strength and a foundation. The strength is not my own and the foundation is the limitless atonement of Jesus Christ. When I am weak, Christ gives me the push I need to cross the finish. He will do the same for you. He beckons us, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and heavy laden, and I shall give you rest....For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." -Matthew 11: 28,30

How I live my faith

I practice my faith when I go to church on Sundays but I feel that the most important time to practice one's faith is the other six days of the week. It's in everyday decisions and habits. I do not swear and I am working on cutting some of the stronger slang out of my vocabulary. I do not drink, even if I am literally the only person in the room not drinking. I choose friends who respect my values. I read my scriptures on a daily basis. I pray multiple times each day, expressing the feelings of my heart to my Heavenly Father. I make an effort every night to reflect and find God's influence in my day. I try to remember that God has his hand in every day of our lives.
