Hi I'm Bronson

I grew up in Vauxhall, Alberta, Canada. I love soccer and snowboarding, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the tiny southern Alberta town of Vauxhall. After graduation, I went on a two-year mission to Uruguay, y fue la mejor experiencia de mi vida! Currently I'm studying accounting at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. As far as hobbies go, I enjoy playing sports. I especially love soccer and snowboarding. I've also been bungee jumping and skydiving, which were both a lot of fun. I also know how to DJ, and love electronic and dance music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and I believe the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be true. I was brought up in the church by my mom when I was younger, but as I grew up, I saw how much better my life was because of the church and how much better it would continue to be, so I continue to go today. I know that there is more to life than this mortal existence. Knowing that there is more than just this gives my life more purpose, happiness and understanding than I'd have otherwise.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to act as the Savior would in my position, by showing kindness, and living with integrity. My beliefs help me be a better person as I make my day-to-day decisions. On my two-year service mission to Uruguay, I taught people the knowledge that I'm so blessed to have. It was incredible being able to help people who wanted to change their life for the better, and seeing the happiness it brought them.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are important because they are the central unit of society. Each of us is placed in a unique family. God has a purpose for all families, and has made it so we can be with our families forever. "The Family: A Proclamation to the World" is a declaration to the world on the importance of families. It states, "The family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children." God loves us, and has made it so that we can be with those we love forever. We cannot chose the family in which we are placed. We can, however, choose how we treat one another. Each unique person and each unique family experiences different challenges and difficulties. While we may not be able to choose our circumstances, or which difficulties come our way, we do have guidance on how to best attain happiness in the home. The Family: A Proclamation to the World states, "Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities."
