Hi I'm Brennan

I love the piano, and I will soon be serving a mission in Monterrey Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from an awesome family of five people. I recently graduated from high school and am currently preparing to serve an LDS (Mormon) mission. I will be leaving for my mission in Monterrey Mexico on July 10th. After my mission, I plan to pursue an education in engineering at Brigham Young University. Recently, I traveled to Phoenix Arizona as a finalist in the International Science and Engineering Fair. My friend and I were able to win a few awards and scholarships for our work in engineering. Additionally, I am an avid pianist. I have performed with orchestras and have competed in numerous competitions. I also enjoy snowboarding, running, and just living life in the best way I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm not a Mormon just because I was born into a Mormon family. I'm a Mormon because I love being one. Living the things taught in our church bring happiness and comfort that cannot be found elsewhere. By following Christ, I can feel God's love for his children and can receive guidance and help throughout my life--especially in times of trouble. The teachings of the gospel bring hope, charity, and love to myself and my family. Through prayer, study, and modern-day personal revelation, I have come to know that Christ lived and died for all of God's children, including me. He lived as an example, suffered for my sins, and died so that I might return to live with him one day. Through him, I am able to repent and receive exaltation. I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. He truly stood in the presence of God the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. Through Joseph Smith and heavenly messengers, the true church, the power to act in Christ's name, and all the important ordinances that were present during Christ's ministry were restored to the Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book. The doctrine and teachings contained therein are amazing and life changing. In conjunction with the Bible, the Book of Mormon serves as another testament of Jesus Christ. I promise that if you pray and sincerely ask to know if the Book of Mormon is true, believing that you can receive an answer, you will receive confirmation that is it true.

How I live my faith

I have been an active member of the LDS church throughout my entire life. During this time, I have had the opportunity to actively serve in the church on many occasions. Recently, I had the opportunity to serve as a leader for a group of youth preparing to serve missions. I was able to organize meetings and help prepare them for missions. Additionally, I had the opportunity to learn about family history work and to teach others how to effectively research their own genealogy. Learning about family history was a wonderful blessing to me. Also, I have the opportunity to serve a mission soon. Serving a mission will be a wonderful opportunity. I will be able to serve as an example for my church and will be able to share the joy and blessings of my gospel with others.
