Hi I'm Austin Bradley

I'm a writer, an artist, a missionary in Italy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Coloradan, born and raised and proud of it. I went to college at byu-Idaho for about a year (I studied art), but now I'm on a two year mission in the wonderful country of Italy to share what I believe in (Italy, by the way, is beautiful. It is an incredible opportunity to be surrounded by all of its art and history and great food.) I love all things artistic. I love reading, watching movies, and any other form of storytelling. I especially enjoy comics. As a writer, I aspire to one day make something meaningful and enjoyable for others to read and share.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found an incredible peace in the teachings I've learned in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was raised in this church, and the example of my parents and their love of God has always been significant to me. My own personal testimony has grown immensely as I've gone on my mission. It's really pushed me to find out for myself if this church was the right place to be. I've read the scriptures so much here and prayed so much, and I've come to know through these things how much my Heavenly Father loves me.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for two years in the northern area of Italy. This is a chance for me to be able to serve those around me and share my testimony of Jesus Christ. I get to meet with other members of our church and help them. You get to see a lot of things and you see how much difficulty there is in the world. While we as missionaries can't fix everything, it's nice to see how we can at least help those around us through service and sharing the teachings of Christ.
