Hi I'm Brian

I am a Canadian. I am a husband and dad to 5 children. I founded a wildlife rehabilitation centre called Salthaven. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My life has been very diversified in so far as I have enjoyed a number of occupations. I have supported my family as a working musician promoting four songs in the top ten in the Canadian charts. I currently work as a wildlife rehabilitator and have an interest in flying, scuba, and skiing with my family. First and foremost I am a husband and father to five children.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is a way of life for me. It's more than just a discipline, it is who I am. It allows me to see life from a different perspective but also has taught me the value of living within the boundaries of universal truths. When I was younger I used to think that religion in general was too restrictive to allow one to enjoy life to the fullest. I have since learned that like the rules and laws of aerodynamics in flying that I follow as a pilot, which allow me considerable freedom in the air, the laws of God will give us considerable freedom here on the earth also. Being a Mormon has changed my life and helped me to be an influence for good within my family and in the community. Life is still a challenge, some days more than others, but the way I approach challenges as a Mormon allows for growth and gives me courage to believe in tomorrow and in the fact that I am being guided in my righteous desires.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in my church as a Sunday School teacher and missionary. I have served as a bishop and currently serve as a Home Teacher that visits assigned church members each month to lend support in spiritual and temporal matters when necessary. I also happen to believe that we have been given a stewardship over the earth and the animals that we share the planet with. In keeping with my convictions in this regard I have founded a charity called Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Centre Inc. This charity recieves 4000 calls annually to help sick injured or orphaned wild animals. It has over 100 volunteers that work three shifts a day to meet the demand.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

This plain and simple doctrine spoke to me the moment I heard it. To me on a personal level it just makes so much sense. I have always believed that there is a purpose for our being here and that we can one day be together again with those we love after our life here is finished. If God is a fair, kind and loving individual, how could it be otherwise. Show more Show less
