Hi I'm Brett

I grew up in the SF bay area. I played 3 varsity sports. I hope to be successful in the Health field. And I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I love to play sports! I played Football, Basketball, and Baseball all throughout High School. I love to learn about how the body works. I would love to be on the Health support for a pro or college athletics team, so I can help those athletes recuperate and get back on the field, or court. I will be going to a community college to major in Biology (allied health) to try to reach my dream job. I love being an uncle! I have returned from a 2 year mission in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. The time i spent there I really gained a love for the people of Rio! I can speak Portuguese fluently. I earned the Eagle Scout rank in the Boy Scouts of America organization. I love to spend time with family and friends. I love to be happy and turn frowns upside down. =)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I Know that this is Christ's Church back on the Earth. How do I know? Understanding that God has always called Prophets to lead His people and understanding that God doesn't ever change!! That means that we need to be guided by a true prophet of God to be able to say that we are on the path that leads to eternal salvation. We teach that Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet of God just as Moses was called of God. God came down and showed himself to both of these humble men desiring to do Gods will. Joseph Smith Translated an ancient record by the power of God that contains the communication of God with the Ancient inhabitants of the American continent. The question is that if this book called "The Book of Mormon" is in fact a true record then this is all true! I read this book and followed its invite to ask God if it is true. I did so and I received one of the most vivid answers by the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me that the Book is a true record and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet to bring THE TRUTH back here on the Earth. Through him priesthood authority has been restored to the Earth. A greater knowledge of this truth came from putting the things that I learned in practice. I promise and I testify that all who are looking for the truth will find it, if you put your trust in God and recognize the Holy Spirit as he talks to you. Studying more about the Bible I can second the statement of Joseph Smith that says that we are the ONLY religion that follows the Bible and ALL of its teachings. I have represented the Lord and His church for 2 years and this to me now is FACT! I know that God Lives because Christ's Apostles AND the people of the American continent both saw and touched Him. God Lives and has a plan for all of us! We need to live the gospel to prepare to live with God. Salvation is given to all who believe. Eternal Life is given to All who follow. This is why I'm a Mormon! In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

How I live my faith

I live my faith trying my best to follow the example of my savior Jesus Christ! I live with the hope of receiving eternal life! Eternal life for me would be to live with God, Jesus Christ, my family, and the people that I love! Only by following Christ I can make this hope a reality! I help the local missionaries (representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that usually ride around on bicycles wearing white shirts and ties) by going with them to share the restored gospel to others. I don't serve in any position in my congregation, YET. I love to follow my Saviors example in service! There is no substitute of the happiness that I receive every time I help someone out. I try to read the Bible and the Book of Mormon every day and I hope to build my future family upon the foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Doing so, I will be able provide and protect my family from the evil tactics of Satan who is the enemy to God and His work. Applying the principles of the Gospel, First, Faith - Second, Repentance - Third, Baptism - Fourth, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost - Fifth, Enduring to the End! Obeying the commandments of olden day prophets as well as modern day prophets!
