Hi I'm Braiden Childs

I'm from Salt Lake City Utah. I'm a missionary in the Durban, South Africa Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Braiden and I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah. I enjoy playing basketball, lifting weights, traveling the world, watching movies, riding motor cycles, and spending time with my friends and family! I am enrolled at BYU right now, but for the next two years I will be serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Durban, South Africa! I am so excited for the new adventure and next chapter of my life to unfold!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because without a doubt I know that it is the true church. I know that this is the true church upon the earth because I have learned that if you pray with faith and read The Book of Mormon with a desire to understand it that you will be converted! I guarantee it! By doing those two simple things, I have noticed a change in myself and I have had a desire to make changes in my life so that I will follow Christ's teaching so that I will always be able to have his spirit to be with me!

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? Well, it is really simple! By attending church meetings throughout my life I have been able to learn and apply the teachings which I have learned which have brought so much happiness to my life! I have grown up in the church and have loved how it as a unit is so strong! Everyone is so kind and you have the comfort of having a whole group of people who care about you! While attending church meetings and the youth activities, I have met some of my closest friends as well.
