Hi I'm Bryson Gray

I grew up in Minnesota and moved to Utah when I was 16, I LOVE music and performing and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Maple Grove, Minnesota, until my family and I moved to Utah when I was almost 16. I enjoy doing theatre, choir, singing, playing the organ, and learning. I am currently serving a mission in the Mississippi Jackson Mission for 2 years! After that, I plan on going to Utah State University to study music and pre-med. Once done at USU, I plan on going to medical school and becoming either an Emergency Medicine Physician or an Internist (Internal Medicine Physician) OR a Pediatric Endocrinologist since I'm a diabetic and I want to help little children with diabetes! Music is a huge part of my life. I have always been in love with music. It makes my life so much more happier and really brings me closer to God.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of my mother. She lived in Mississippi, where I am going on my mission, and was converted by Missionaries who truly loved her. I was born into the church and have personally found out for myself that this is the true church and that it was the church that I wanted to belong to. There are so many answers that others just can't find in other churches that the LDS church has and I really really love that. It's very comforting for me to know that this is the only church on the face of the earth that has 100% of the gospel of Jesus Christ and all of the doctrine and principles laid by Jesus Christ, who is at the head of the Church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every week and participating actively! Whether that is sharing experiences I've had during my classes, teaching part of the lesson, or blessing the sacrament for the congregation. Outside of church, I participate in service activities, bring the weekly sacrament to elderly members of our ward, do my hometeaching with my companion and go to Young Men's weekly. I am currently living my faith by going out on a mission and bringing others to Christ. I am constantly sharing the message of the Restoration and information about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If I didn't have faith or believe that this church was true, I wouldn't be spending two years of my life teaching others about it and bringing them unto the Savior and Heavenly Father! After my mission, I plan on continuing to serve the Lord and help out the missionaries in the area where I live by going out with them and helping them bring others unto Christ.
