Hi I'm Brandon Bean

I love to ride snowmobiles, and work on the farm. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in a farming community, I have loved to farm and to work my whole life. I like being outside and being active. I love to ride snowmobiles, it is my favorite hobby. I love the winter, and mostly, the snow. I am the middle of two brothers, and two sisters, and I have great parents. I love being with the whole family and just spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that it is true. I have had feelings and things happen in my life that are impossible to deny that this is the true church. I know that when I am doing what is right, I am happy, and the Lord blesses me when I follow his commandments. I feel peace when I am serving the Lord. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for my sins, so that I can live with God again someday. I know the atonement of Jesus Christ to be real, and to work in my life. I'm not sure of HOW it works, but I know that it does work. I know that the atonement is true, and by being obedient that we may truly be forgiven through it. I know that God loves me, and that above all, He wants me to be happy. He will help us through our every day lives, and be there for us when we need him. I know of the Book of Mormon to be true. I know that it was translated by the power of God through the prophet Joseph Smith. I feel happiness and peace when I read the Book of Mormon, and I know of it to be the true word of God. I am very thankful for this gospel and the happiness that it brings into my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith, because it makes me feel peace and to be happy. I have my mission call to go to Colombus, Ohio in less than a month. I'm very excited to teach God's true message and to dedicate myself to the Lord. Growing up, I have been a leader in different groups for the LDS church. I try to set a good example so that others may also see the happiness that comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
