Hi I'm Brady

I love making people laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hanging out with friends, skiing, playing tennis, listening to music, and going on dates. I just finished my first year of college, and although it was hard being away from home, I had the time of my life. I enjoy taking pictures and making personal videos to capture special moments in my life. I also enjoy freestyle rap sessions with buddies to have fun and grow closer.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Book of Mormon. I love reading its doctrine, learning about the stories, and trying to apply its principles in my own life. So many times, I've had a question or doubt about something, and I've been able to find an answer in the Book of Mormon. And most of the time, I'm not even purposely looking for it! I love the Spirit that I feel when I read, and I know that it truly is the word of God. It makes me want to be a better person, by following God's commandments and participating actively in the Church. I know it is true because I can feel it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily, be being an example to others. At BYU, my church ward consisted of only young single adult members of the church. I served as a "family home evening group leader." Every Monday, a group of about 12 of us would get together and hold what we call a family home evening, which consisted of a song, prayer, a short spiritual message, an activity of some sort, and maybe a treat to top it off. I served with another sister from the ward to oversee our family home evening group, to plan activities, and then carry them out each week. I love going hometeaching with my dad, which is when we go visit other families from our church, see how they are doing, and teach them a gospel message.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Brady
Mormon women are sweet and loving. In my experiences dating Mormon women, they have been modestly dressed, with high standards of self-respect. They are intelligent. They are kind. They believe in God and they care about their families. They also love to have fun doing wholesome recreational activities. They are great! Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Brady
The priesthood is the authority to do things for God, in His name. Worthy priesthood holders may baptize, bless the Sacrament, and hold leadership positions in the Church. God's servants are expected to maintain a high standard of worthiness, so those who are doing things in His name must be living a clean life and striving to follow the Savior. Every worthy male who is a member of the Church may receive the blessing of holding the priesthood. I am so grateful for the priesthood in my life! Show more Show less
