Hi I'm Brendan Layton

"I grew up in Calgary Alberta, I'm currently serving in the Canada Halifax Mission, I'm a Mormon"

About Me

Im currently serving a mission in the Canada Halifax Mission, I am loving every minute of it. It really is such a great experience and you learn so much about God and yourself through your service. In the future I am planning on going to school in Business, I enjoy hanging out with family members and friends and both are very important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints because it has helped me gain a knowledge that God is there and he does love me and he has a plan for me, and not only that the Church has helped me start to get to know my Savior. With his help I have changed into a person who I am truly happy to be, he can mold you and shape you just as clay. I gained a testimony of the church when I was 18 through what we can in the church a Patriarchal Blessing, the moment when i read it when I needed guidance and help more than anything I felt the hand of God in my life and all my memories when I felt the spirit and felt peace and love came back to me, I haven't looked back and everyday I strive to be better than I was yesterday.

How I live my faith

Right now I am giving full time service as a missionary, this service includes very different things such as teaching people more about the gospel, helping locally in the church and also we give other service in the community such as shoveling snow, singing to people at old folks home, mowing lawns. Any way we can bear anyone's burden and help out we strive to do. I previously taught 5-6 years old classes in church and I love it. Its great to see them learning and hear their simple powerful prayers.
