Hi I'm Bryan

I pretty much grew up in Tennessee. I am a future missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission in Brazil. I am working full time. I have a year of college behind me. My current major is in chemistry, but that is likely to change. I love books and music. I love a little country, a little rock, and a little classical. I have to say I am a sucker when it comes to string instruments and the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon. Part of the reason, I suppose, would be that I was raised in this religion. From the time I was born to the current day, this church has been a part of my life. However, I made a decision in my teenage years to continue living His gospel. I had strayed from His teachings and always felt empty. Nothing I did brought happiness, no matter how hard I looked. After seeing the happiness in the lives of other members, I decided to start doing what I should have been doing. I started to read the scriptures. I started to pray aloud to my Father in Heaven. I learned more about Jesus Christ and many things He has done for us. I learned to love the Bible and the examples set by Peter, Paul, and other prominent figures. The Book of Mormon especially brought me closer to God. It testifies of the divinity of Christ. It teaches many important truths and sets a standard by which I should live my life. All these things brought me joy. It gave me purpose. It also gives stability and comfort. It is nice to know that wherever to go, you will always have a church and it will be the same. One of the biggest reasons I am still a Mormon is because of the focus on the family. There is almost nothing more important than family and a righteous family can be together forever. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am the scout leader over the 11 year old scouts. I don't have many boys in the group but I wouldn't trade them for anyone. I also am a teacher for the men's group in my congregation. Actually, I lead the group in discussion. Most of the teaching occurs when the men give their own insights, inspirations, and opinions. I am also a hometeacher. I am assigned a few families to visit every month. I make sure that their spiritual and temporal needs are met. If there are any problems, I do everything within my power to help them with their problems. This is also a good opportunity to make new friends.
