Hi I'm Braden Durtschi

I lived in the same place for 17 years. I was in my High School Marching Band. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school graduate who has not gone to college yet, but is planning to. My hobbies are skiing, camping, hiking, and when I can doing Marching Band. I have lived in the same house for 17 years, which I moved to when I was 2 years old.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents taught me that it is the right thing to do. I grew up in the Church and I have never regretted it. I have chosen to continue to follow the Gospel because I know that it is true and I love the blessings that I get from following it. I bear my testimony that I do know that this Church is true. I know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who loves us and watches out for us. I know that Jesus Christ died for our sins, so that we may be saved and return to our Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a true Prophet, as well as knowing that all the past Prophets up to Thomas S. Monson, our current Prophet, have been true.

How I live my faith

I go to all of my Church meetings every Sunday, and participate as much as I can. I was at one point either a President or Councilor in all of my age group classes. I go hometeaching once a month with my father.
