Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Braden

I grew up in California in a family of 5 boys. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love singing and acting. I've performed in plays and musicals. I've deferred from Utah State University to go a mission and give missionary service for two years. I am currently serving in the Washington DC North Mission, Spanish speaking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is the true church that has the gospel of Jesus Christ, I can live it, and I love it. I know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and we are his spirit children. I know that we were sent here to Earth to obtain a body, learn, and grow. We are on this Earth to be tested and follow the example of Jesus Christ and keep the laws of God. We will make mistakes; no one is perfect. But, we can repent of our mistakes and be clean. Christ suffered for our sins so that we can repent. Jesus love us. I know that Heavenly Father has his church on the Earth today. Just as in the time of the Old Testament, God calls prophets that he speaks to. Prophets guide us in these days to help us try and return to our Heavenly Father. Joseph Smith was a prophet. Joseph Smith, through the power of God, translated the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It contains the writings of ancient prophets in the Americas and their dealings with Heavenly Father and Christ. The Book of Mormon compliments the Bible, and both of them together help us see the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray about the Book of Mormon and ask if it is true and the Holy Ghost, or the Spirit of God will testify to you the truth of this book. Heavenly Father wants all of his children to be happy and come and return to live with him. The only way we can do this is through Jesus Christ. We must follow the example of Jesus Christ and live His gospel.

How I live my faith

Living my faith everyday isn't something hard for me, I choose to follow my religion. I try to follow God's commandments and lad by example. I choose to avoid things and situations that are negative and harmful. I choose not to swear, act vulgar, and many other things. I am open to talk about my religion to others and always try and answer the questions they have.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Braden
We believe that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It was written by ancient prophets who lived in the Americas. Many prophets wrote in this book and taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. The book also records some of the history of the people who lived there and how they arrived in the Americas.

What is the priesthood?

Braden
The priesthood is the ability to act in the name of God. It is the power that God has given to man. The priesthood can only be used when the person who has the priesthood is worthy and following the commandments of God. The priesthood is the same power that God gave to his ancient prophets and the same priesthood established by Jesus Christ in the original Church established by Him. Show more Show less
