Hi I'm Brandon

I love California. I love to play tennis. I love my family. And oh yeah I am a Mormon! :)

About Me

I love being me! I have found that life is too short to try to act like you are someone else! I have realized who I am and who I want to be and I love that. I love to play tennis! It is one of my favorite things to do! I love to serve others around me. To know that I have brightened someones day makes me so incredibly happy. I love to see the light their eyes and to know that I have helped them feel happy makes me so glad. When I am helping others around me I am also happy and I have so much fun doing it! I love my family so much and I love to spend time with them. They always bring me so much happiness!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but in reality all those that are a part of it come to a point in their lives where they become converts in themselves. I always went to church with my family and I loved being there. But as I got older I wanted to know for myself if everything that I was doing, being a part of, and living was true. I wanted to know for myself. I had heard so many people before me saying that it was true. That this was the true and living church of Jesus Christ that he had brought to the Earth and established so many years ago. I wanted to know that Joseph Smith was the prophet who was called by God to restore the Church that had been lost after so many years of the dark ages. I hungered within myself to know of these things. I began to pray fervently and sincerely nightly while reading The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The book brought me much peace and comfort as I continued to desire and know of its truth. Eventually and after much patience I had received my answer through the Holy Ghost. He bore witness to me of the truthfulness of this Church and everything within it. I cannot deny that overwhelming feeling of peace, joy, and pure happiness that I had. I know that this is real gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so glad to have the knowledge of this truth!! I know it is true because I feel it! I know that Christ has suffered for my sins and my mistakes and I am so grateful for Him and for all that He has done for me. I love having this knowledge and this makes me so happy!! :)

How I live my faith

I love to serve those around me!! I know that when I do this I bring others as well as myself happiness. This is something that Christ did when he was on the Earth. He served and loved others unconditionally. I know that as I strive to become like Him the happier I become. I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I have been assigned to serve in New York! I am excited that I am a missionary and I love that I have the opportunity to bring the message of happiness to those that I will meet.
