Hi I'm Braedon Holbrook

I grew up in Utah, I love music, I play football. I am currently serving a mission in New York, New York, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Braedon Holbrook. I am 20 years old, I love hanging out with my friends and family. I love going camping, being outdoors, snowboarding, and just having fun. I have a scholarship to play college football in Iowa but I put it on hold to serve a full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior. He sacrificed his life for me so that I may return to live with him and my Father in Heaven once more. After receiving my mission call things in life became very difficult. I had to truly find my own testimony because I knew that without it I could not teach the people in New York the things that the Lord wanted me to. I worked hard and struggled to find my testimony of the gospel, and once I did the peace I received was something that I can never forget. It has helped me through difficult times here on my mission.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission in the New York, New York area. I serve the Spanish speaking people of this mission. I find that being charitable is the most effective way to increase the enjoyment of my life and my faith. I try to live the way that Christ lived so that I can better see the love my Savior has for me. This strengthens my faith in him also.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Braedon Holbrook
Missionaries share messages with you about our church, why we are here on the earth, where we came from and where we are going after this earth life. They also teach about the love your father in heaven has for all of us. Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Braedon Holbrook
I love to look at scriptures as blueprints for the people we are to become. They give us direction and help us understand our purpose in life. Most importantly they show us the way back to our Father in Heaven. Show more Show less
