Hi I'm Brent Borup

I love living in a small town in Idaho. I am an artist working from home. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Brent. I am an artist. I have always wanted to be an artist growing up and I am very blessed to have met my wife who believes in me and has helped me to achieve my goals. We haven't always had a lot of money, but we have always had what we need, and we have always been happy. I am now to the point where I am able to work from home where I create Christian artwork that can inspire other and hopefully bring others closer to Christ. I believe that it's important to do what you love and I am loving my life. I feel very blessed to have the gospel in my life and I hope to better share these blessings with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, however I honestly believe that if I was not, I would have joined this church on my own. I am a very logical thinker, and I have always had many questions on just how things really work. I have been able to find all the answers to every question that I have ever had through my faith. I believe that our Heavenly Father uses scientific laws to perform His works, and that He has a plan for us and our futures. I know that if I ever had a doubt or question, I have been taught the correct ways to study the scriptures and words of the prophets, and with prayer and faith I can receive the revelation that I would need. I have felt the influence of the Holy Ghost many times in my life.

How I live my faith

Although I'm far from perfect, I always try to live a Christian life and do what I know Jesus would want me to do. I try to live in such a way where others would want to learn more about Christ because of my influence. I feel that I am constantly growing and learning in the gospel. I am lucky enough to have a job where I an able to promote my faith daily. I often paint pictures of temples. I hope that these paintings can help people set goals to enter the holy temple and return often.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Brent Borup
God is our Heavenly Father. We are his children. He knows and loves each one of us individually, and He wants us to return to Him. God has a physical body, although unlike ours, His has been perfected. He is an immortal, glorified being. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Brent Borup
Mormons believe the Bible to be the word of God. The Bible was written by prophets of God who testified of Jesus Christ and His divine earthly mission. It is Truth. For that same reason, we believe the Book of Mormon to also be the word of God. Any revelation given to Holy Prophets called by God is considered scripture. Show more Show less
