Hi I'm Bridger Hinrichs

I grew up in Park City Utah. I'm a Missionary, a son of our Heavenly Father, an Eagle Scout, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Currently I am serving a mission in Southern Georgia. A mission is truly the greatest work and hardest work I have ever done, and it helps me grow everyday. My mission means the world to me and it has been worth every sacrifice that I made to serve one. My faith grows daily as I share the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ, and help bring others closer to him. I have two wonderful parents, two amazing sisters, and one awesome younger brother. I enjoy running, fishing, hanging out with friends, being in the out doors, having fun, and learning about the Gospel. I plan on attending college, when I finish my mission, to study engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Gospel is true. Through prayer, fasting, and scripture study I have come to a sure knowledge that these things are true. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is absolutely true. I know that it has been restored to this earth with the fullness of the complete gospel through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and is another testament of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I know without a doubt that God listens to all our prayers, and I can testify that he does answer them. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a Prophet that has been called of God to be the leader of the church. I know that my Redeemer lives. I know that Jesus loves us enough to suffer and even die so that all of could be forgiven of our sins. I can testify of the truth of these things with every fiber of my being because without a shadow of doubt I know that they are true. The knowledge of this truth defines every part of my life, and has made me the person I am today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing my obedience to Heavenly Father. I show my obedience by following the commandments, constantly exercising my faith in Heavenly Father, and listening to the teachings of our modern day prophets. I read the Book of Mormon everyday because it is the key stone of our religion, and will absolutely build our faith. Most of all, I strive to be an example to others and help them feel of the infinite love that Heavenly Father has for them.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Bridger Hinrichs
The blessings we can recieve through the gift of the Holy Ghost are essential to our eternal salvation. The Holy Ghost will guide, teach, and comfort us as long as we remain worthy. The Holy Ghost can also confim truth and inspire us with thoughts, ideas, and even warn us of danger which will help us make the right choices in life. Through the gift of the Holy Ghost, and always striving to be worthy of that gift, we can be guided back to our loving Heavenly Father. We can know the promptings of the Holy Ghost by looking for the fruits, or the evidence, of the Spirit; which is love, joy, and peace. All of us may feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost differently, and sometimes those promptings are hard to recognize, but by always striving to live God's commandments we can remain worthy of that constant companionship of the Holy Ghost and learn they truth of all things.
