Hi I'm Brandon Nelson

I was born in Arizona and I am half Navajo Indian. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am Navajo and White, first I am native and seconded a white man. Now when I was growing up on the Rez I have a hard time being in two worlds but as I have grown my eyes have opened to how blessed I am. I come from a big family (11- 6 boys 5 girls and little old me #7) but due to my mom being a only child I could see how she could just want us to have brother and sisters to play with. We moved to Utah when I was about 11 from New Mexico and that really helped me grow in the gospel. Now I live in Seattle which is a huge change from the desert of NM...everything is green! YES! I am a active person which fits the Puget Sound area very while. Come visit, don't let the clouds scare you off. I am serving a two year mission in Mexico City.

Why I am a Mormon

I have seen the blessing of living the gospel in my life as well as my families life. I know the happiness that comes from it is something I could not find ANYWHERE else. I have looked, so knowing that I choice to follow the gospel. It has changed my life and I will never go back. I am grateful for being so blessed

How I live my faith

I attend a young single adult ward, most of us come from out of state for school or other life ambitions. I work with disabled adults for a living and in that line of work I have love the chance to care for those who need our help and in doing so I feel especial blessed. I teach a Sunday school lesson once a month to a group of college age men. In that calling I have loved learning the gospel but the real blessing is when I learn from the students and see them get it. I also visit members who may not have their family due to school or are living alone. While strengthening the fellowship and visiting we find how we might help with anything. We also give a lesson about a subject that might help the member with what they are going through. I also get visited, now I don't know how good my lessons are but the lesson I receive really help to let me know there is someone for me I can turn to. Its the simple things of feeling belong that got the farthest for me. So with all that I try to live my faith everyday.
