Hi I'm Braden Griffin

I'm from Provo, Utah and I love sports. I'm also serving in the California Ventura Mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Provo, Utah and I've grown up in the church. I'm currently serving a mission in the California, Ventura mission. I love playing sports. I played baseball and wrestled in high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and it's always been a blessing in my life. I have seen it strengthen me and my family. Throughout my life I've been able to make better decisions, and overcome trials easier. There's no doubt I know this church is true. The evidence is in the Book of Mormon. I've read it and prayed about it. I have been touched by the holy ghost and I can't deny it. Through the prophet Joseph Smith, God truly restored his church. I know my Savior lives and God is our loving Heavenly Father. By being in the church I've made great friends and my faith has increased.

How I live my faith

Before my mission I went home teaching with my Dad. It's a great opportunity to share the gospel. You're able to reach out to less actives of the church, non members, and strengthen members.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Braden Griffin
We believe that after this life on earth we will all be resurrected, and receive a perfect, immortal body. We will have the opportunity to become like God and receive all that he has. We can also live with our loved ones for eternity. We will live in a state of happiness if we've done what's right in this life. It will also be a time where we can teach the gospel to others. One of the greatest things is we also get to live with God and Jesus Christ again. Show more Show less
