Hi I'm Brandt Carmichael

I'm a missionary in the Texas San Antonio mission. I'm an adrenaline junkie from Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an adventure enthusiast. Wherever I am, I seek opportunities for extreme experiences. Whether it be snowboarding, wakeboarding, skating, mountain biking, or skydiving... I'm in! I graduated early from high school and have my own clothing company called Anka Ride Co. I enjoy being outside with family and friends. God created nature for our enjoyment, so that's what I use it for. I am currently serving a 2 year mission in San Antonio, Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a lifetime member and a recent convert. I was raised Mormon and went to church every Sunday. I now realize that even though it has been tried and tested, a testimony is something that I have always had. There were times that I just went with the flow and watched my life pass by me. Now I live it to the fullest while following the commandments that God has put in place for us. When we keep the commandments we are free from captivity. I am a Mormon because that is the way to true and lasting joy!

How I live my faith

God is part of everything I do. Whether it's going to church on Sunday or skateboarding on the weekends. God created our bodies so we could learn to become like him. We have so much potential! In everything I do I remember that I can have these experiences only because of God. I live my faith by sharing it with others in anyway possible. I share my faith by enjoying the freedom that God has given me when I live His gospel. Having that firm foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ helps me to do the things I want to do, and to spread His gospel while I do them.
