Hi I'm Nicholas Brewer

I'm an avid sushi-eater, I can solve a Rubik's Cube, I love music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am completely neutral as far as what I do in life. In other words, I will do/play just about anything whether it is fishing, skeet shooting, camping, Ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, golfing, eating competitions, rock climbing, spelunking, mountain biking, motorcycles, ANYTHING! I am an absolute consumer of SUSHI! I absolutely love scoping out new sushi restaurants and tasting the different combinations and variations of sushi rolls. Some of my bucket-list goals in life is to go sky diving and solve a Rubik's Cube. I am a black belt in karate as well as an Eagle Scout. Currently (as of 6/19/2013) I am serving a mission for my church in Oregon for the next two years!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the church all my life. My father was a member all of his life and my mother joined right before they were married and sealed in the temple. I absolutely love this Gospel! Perhaps one of the most stabilizing factors of the Church is The Book of Mormon: Another Testament to Jesus Christ. It is exactly that, another testament, another guarantee, another testimony, another assurance that Jesus IS the Christ and that He is risen and will once again visit the earth. It is through His atonement that I know I have been forgiven of my trespasses and I can once again move on in faith. Like in the Boy Scouts of America's Law, this gospel has kept me physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. It has created within me a stable conscience as well as peace to my family and those around me.

How I live my faith

I am constantly trying by best to make other people feel joyful, comfortable and optimistic. I enjoy being outside and will stop all I am doing at that moment to help someone who is moving, changing a tire, lost a dog/cat, or any other service that is brought to my attention. I always hold the door for a woman and show the utmost respect for my mother. I am currently a Missionary for my church and will be serving in Oregon for the next two years!

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Nicholas Brewer
Tithing is used for many things in the Church! However, nobody is paid in this church; not the bishops, missionaries, apostles, the prophet, nobody. So where does the money go? It is used to build new temples and meeting houses as well as the cost to run and operate those buldings. It helps fund the missionaries while they are out; not to pay for food or personal needs but rather medical expeses if needed as well as housing and utilities. Show more Show less
