Hi I'm Brogan

I am not a husband. I am not a father. I am not a dentist, but I am a Mormon.

About Me

Born and raised in the lovely city of South Ogden, Utah to an American father and a British mother. I am what you may refer to as a "jack of many trades, master of none." I have done many things with the 20-year period I have been alive thus far, but I probably wouldn't qualify as amazing in any one field of interest yet. I am, however, a huge lover of the arts. Drawing, painting, music, acting, filmography, and video games. Yes, I consider video games a form of art. I played a lot of soccer growing up, as well as taking piano, violin, and ukulele lessons, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little rusty at most of them now. I still value music as one of the greatest discoveries of human history. I have been in multiple choirs, including a traveling show choir. I have spent and continue to spend countless hours of my life drawing and sketching almost anything and everything. I am down with any genre of video games, whether Sony or Microsoft, but I especially enjoy it if you can get some friends involved I am a believer of having fun, I truly believe laughter is the best medicine. I have been making short films with my friends since our elementary school days. I have worked with professionals from California doing improvisation acting and I am all game for a comedy movie, with the occasional horror movie for kicks. Most of all though, I am a believer in Christ and what he lived for. I am currently serving him and my fellow man in Taipei, Taiwan.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, quite simply our life is very short, and we have to choose how we are going to spend it. Obviously life has a lot of gray areas, things that make you question or wonder. I have seen those who live their lives in tune with the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I have seen those who choose not to, and there is a significant difference. Those who live the principles and teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints are generally more happy and more content with their lives. I myself grew up in the church but, like everyone else, I went through a period of questioning my purpose and my faith. It was by no means the happiest time in my life, but because I chose to pray to God about the church and it's teachings I can now testify that I know without a doubt this is the fullness of Christ's gospel restored to the earth, I know what my purpose is in life, and I know that I have a loving Savior at my side willing to help lift my burdens.

How I live my faith

I do what the Lord asks of me. Praying, going to church and reading the scriptures regularly are the most basic, but I have also been a teacher for youth ages 12 to 14 in my home ward and have participated as a member of my stake youth council for a number of years working to strengthen the youth in my area. I have served in multiple quorums (groups) within the church as well, teaching gospel principles to members of my ward. The biggest way we can live our faith, however, is living by example. I try every day to live in a way that makes people want to know God because they know me. I am currently showing this example and helping to strengthen God's kingdom on earth by serving a full-time proselyting mission in Taipei, Taiwan.
