Hi I'm Brian

I am a computer scientist. I love being a husband and father. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have a lot of hobbies and interests, but I've noticed that they've really changed over time. I find that they have centered in ways that I can spend more time with my wife and son. For example, I really like the peace of fly fishing on the river, but it's a lot more fun if my son is wading through the river with me and sharing in the experience. I also like to read, but have found that it's a lot of fun to read books as a family. There is so much good in the world and I enjoy sharing it with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of The Church of Jesus of Latter-Day Saints, because I felt a deep love as I read The Book of Mormon. It was unlike anything I had experienced before. This was my first experience in feeling the power of the Spirit, and since then it is consistently reinforced as I attend church, read the scriptures, and partake of the sacrament. My life has been filled with peace as I have adhered to the teachings of Jesus Christ shared through His church. As a computer scientist I also like to reason. My mind has been enlightened as I've sought truth and reasoned through the teachings of Jesus Christ taught in His church. I know that I don't understand all things, but I'm getting a clearer picture of who I am and what my role in this life is. This is a source of great peace for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to adhere to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Sometimes I get to practice his teachings in assignments from church leaders in my area. I live my faith by focusing on how I can improve myself and looking past other's faults. I live my faith by speaking kindly to my wife and son, and by seeking to help them feel the love that Jesus Christ has for them. I live my faith by seeking to protect my family from the negative and immoral influences all around us. I live my faith by being happy.
