Hi I'm Brandon Patterson

I grew up in Sandy, Utah. I love to play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play soccer and have been playing since I was able to walk. I listen to country music and often go country swing dancing. I am currently enrolled in college at Utah Valley University. My family has a ski boat and we go multiple times a month during the summer. I love to ski and tube, especially with multiple tubes behind our boat.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not good with words. However, I know that this is the only true church on the earth today. I know that when I do what I am suppose to, like go to church and read my scriptures every night, it helps me in every aspect of my life. I also feel joy and happiness when I follow his teachings and when I sin I notice I do not feel as joyful. I know this church is true through following Moroni's promise that if you read the Book of Mormon and ask God if it is true he will give you an answer. I can't deny it so I must, in a sense, follow his teachings. That makes it sound bad though, I am happy when I follow his teachings so it is worth it.

How I live my faith

I am a faithful home teacher. We have three families and me and my father go every month. I am currently preparing to serve a mission and am taking courses in missionary preparation. I try my best every day to set good examples for my friends and always find those who may need a helping hand.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Brandon Patterson
We do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith is a prophet who we believe receive revelation from God to help lead and guide this church. He is a very important man in this church who had direct revelation with God. Show more Show less
