Hi I'm Braxton

My name is Braxton Nielson. I am 19 years old. I love to play and listen to music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, My name is Braxton. Right now I am serving a mission in Mexico which is the greatest. I am absolutely having the time of my life. I like to play all sports. Volleyball and basketball are my favorites but I just love to be active and have fun. If I am outside, I can have fun. I love to listen and play music. When I just want to chill, I just grab my guitar. I love all types of music, anything that just has a good beat is good music!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 10 years old I had a terrible accident that nearly killed me. I received a priesthood blessing from my father, and I know that saved my life. This Gospel has saved my life and I know that God loves me and everyone else in the world. I am a Mormon because I can see the blessings of this Gospel and I can feel of God's love every day.

How I live my faith

The best thing I can do to make sure I am living my faith is surrounding myself with people who are going to uplift me and keep my standards and my faith. All of my best friends are serving missions right now and I am so thankful for them and their example. Without people to lift you up, keeping the faith can be very difficult. Honestly the scriptures are the best way I can maintain a closeness with my Heavenly Father. It doesn't matter how many times you've read the scriptures, you are going to find new insight or something that relates to you at that moment every time you read the scriptures. I have seen the Book of Mormon change lives on my mission. It's the greatest feeling to see lives being changed and come to this Gospel.

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

I am a missionary right now and it is such a blessing. If you have the opportunity to listen to the missionaries, Do It! The missionaries are going to explain all of the blessings that can come through this Gospel and what our purpose is in this life. 3 of the most commonly asked questions about this life are, Why am I here or What is my purpose in this life? Where did I come from? Where am I going after this life? The missionaries will answer these through their teachings and help anyone who listens feel closer to our savior Jesus Christ. Listening to the missionaries is a great opportunity. If you know nothing about this church, are investigating this church, are an inactive or less active member of this church, or are an active member of this church, listen to the missionaries. No matter who you are they have a lesson that can bless your life. Show more Show less
