Hi I'm Braden

I grew up in Texas. I play a multitude of sports such as rugby, basketball, volleyball, etc. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 and a sports fanatic, but I don't watch any sports in particular, I mostly just play them. I am very interested in all things computers and have a little bit of a gamer in me somewhere. I love being outside and being active and I can be sometimes found searching the web and learning what I can about coding computers.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the teachings and principles to be true. I was born into this gospel but regardless of whether you were or not, everyone still has their own conversion story. Mine was actually when I had received my mission call. I know it seems pretty late to be converted but it is exactly the push I needed to stop coasting along and find out for myself if the things that I had been reading and been taught since I was very young were true. I learned very quickly that if you knock He will answer all your questions when you need them answered. And after that moment that I knelt down and prayed to know if these things were true and felt the Spirit tell me they were could I find peace and pure joy. Now it is amazing the things I am learning in the gospel and how easy it really is to live the way I need to. Once I had that moment everything else has fallen into place and it just feels great.

How I live my faith

I have been a part of organizing and leading youth activities. I also have helped plan and do many Eagle Scout projects. I have held the responsibility as a leader over people my age when I was 16-17 years old. I have been home teaching with many companions for a few years and love being able to share what I know to be true.
