Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Toronto, I'm a Business University student, I love to laugh, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Christian Business University student! I enjoy being active playing all sports, going to the cottage, working out, going to activites, listening to music, and attending church events. I love to have fun, to laugh, and to smile! My family, friends, and I are all close and enjoy spending time with on another. I posses a humble confidence that allows me to be very focused and determined, as well as, a loyal and genuine fun loving friend to anyone. I cannot act or appear to be happy when Im not, so what you see, is what you get.

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion was like unto a sun rising. Slowly and gradually "line upon line, precept upon precept" my faith and understanding grew. This happened until one day, the sunlight broke the horizon, and I came to gain a personal modern witness that "For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" I grew up a normal kid, somewhat hoping, believing, wishing, and doubting that an idea of an all powerful being, such as God, could exist. I was an obedient, friendly guy, who had lived the commandments and stayed true to the faith that I had possessed. I loved my family greatly and undoubtedly saw what the church had done for us and myself. There came a point in my life, in high school, where I wanted to know if God was there and that I was apart of Christ's restored church. I had been facing a rising barrier of doubts and questions, which were competing with my beliefs that I had been brought up with. The theories and philosophies mingled among my peers, teachers, and the variety of media, played a force backing me up against the wall of faith. I determined that only an answer from God would suffice me in solidifying my beliefs. I delayed my search for a number of months because I feared that not receiving an answer would push me to fall away. I thought if I wanted to stand blameless before God at the last day, I would have to give this all I had. I thought I would begin my search by sincerely reading and pondering the Book of Mormon. I took Moroni's promise (Moroni 10:3-5) to heart, and read and prayed every night for a spiritual confirmation. Weeks upon weeks had gone by and I had no such answer of what I was searching for. There came one night, after reading and praying, when I felt that my hope was in vain. I pleaded with the Lord and asked a specific question, "Is the Book of Mormon the word of God?" To my astonishment, I had received a divine assurance that I was apart of Christ's restored church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day, and learn precept upon precept. I am an imperfect disciple of Christ. The gospel allows me to clearly understand what God expects of me, and how to progress in becoming successful in this life. The knowledge I have, that I am a son of God, enables me to know the potential and glory that lies within myself. This gives me strength to live my life insync with my Heavenly Father's will. Through being a living modern witness, I live and show my faith by my words, actions, and thoughts; I strive to bring happiness, peace, and humour to the poor in spirit, to put others before myself, to judge less and love more, and aid the broken hearted.
