Hi I'm Braden Anderson

I was born in Texas. I'm on a mission. I love lifting weights. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full time missionary for the church, currently serving in the Canada Vancouver Mission. When i came out on my mission i realized that it doesn't matter where you go on a mission, there are people everywhere who need the gospel. Life is hard, and a knowledge that God is involved in the details of our lives is comforting. I am grateful to my wonderful parents who raised me in a loving home and taught me how to courageously live the gospel in a world that is wicked.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the church and i was raised in a "gospel filled home". I went to church every week growing up and I learned the gospel through teachers, leaders, and peers. I have read the Book of Mormon, taken the challenge to read it and pray about it, and received a powerful spiritual confirmation of it's divinity by the spirit. I am a Mormon because i have seen how much the gospel has blessed my life and i never want it to go away.

How I live my faith

Currently the way that i live my faith is by sharing it with every single person that i talk to. As a missionary we give up 2 years of our life to help others, and help them come to know that there is a God and that he is our loving Heavenly Father. I live my faith by keeping the commandments. I study the Scriptures, pray earnestly every day, obey the rules that i have as a missionary and strive to be the best person that i can. I make my fair share of mistakes, but i am grateful that I can repent of these mistakes and start over with a fresh start.
