Hi I'm Brian

I grew up in California, love sports, guitar, science fiction, and have 11 grandchildren and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a father of 4 (1 male and 3 female) and step dad to 5 ( 2 female and 3 male) I attended American River College in Carmichael, CA and Sacramento State. I have an AA in Business Management and a BA in Recreation Administration. I currently am employed in the field of Logistics. I was Baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Montrose, Colorado in 1978 when I managed the sporting goods Dept of Kmart. I lived in Kent, WA for thirteen years and moved to the Portland area in 1975.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Lord answers prayers. With the encouragement by an Elder serving his mission in Colorado, I prayed, and asked the Lord if Joseph Smith was a prophet and if the Book of Mormon were true. The spirit told me in a voice yes. When I opened my eyes there was a brightness in the room, and I was asked by the Elder if I wanted to be baptized, with what i knew in my mind and heart I could only say yes as I knew the truth and should be baptized in the true church as I knew it to be. I continue to know this is the one and only true church restored through Joseph Smith by Jesus Christ our Savior.

How I live my faith

I have served many positions in the church. Sunday school teacher, Scout leader, youth leader, and working with family history
