Hi I'm Mark Brady

Grew up in Colorado, moved to California to pursue my dreams in Art and DJing, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Mark. About as spontaneous and you can get. Love art, music, culture. I am 22 years old. Been to some college but still working toward a Masters in Technical Art. Love the city. Want to someday work for Pixar, or another motion picture company doing sketching and storyboard work. Grew up in Colorado, love the mountains and to travel. Someday would love to end up living in London, or Belgium. I love to be around people and exposure to culture, religion, food, and idea-ology. I DJ on the side, and have an obsession with EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Play guitar, piano, and the trumpet. Have a love for Jazz, EDM, classic 40's and 50's, acoustic. Love people. Served a mission for our church in Salt Lake City. Love to laugh and take life to it's fullest. All things I give credit to God. Always watching over us.

Why I am a Mormon

This is my favorite section, because I think it's a great question. "Mormons". We have a lot of rumors and strange other "doctrine" said about us, our beliefs, and our culture. Most of what I hear is far from the truth, and I know with all my heart that this Gospel, is true. I am a mormon because I have prayed to God and felt peace and was given knowledge that it is true. I don't believe it is true. I know it is true. Like the Bible says, "without Faith Ye are nothing". And Faith in Christ is my foundation. He heals all my wounds, blesses me EVERY day. Even if I mess up. Even if I make a bad decision (or many). No matter what I know He is watching over me, and is my real Father. Whether I am on Earth or in Heaven. He's my dad. And He is perfect. My Father will always be there for me. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I know the Book of Mormon and Bible are true scripture. I know that this Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints is the true church. How can I KNOW this? The Spirit of God can give us knowledge that no other book, person, publication, or web-page can. It is embedded in my heart. and I know it, will shout it until I get to die and live with my Father and brother Jesus Christ again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by regular Church attendance on Sundays. I have a responsibility assigned to me in our Church as a "Ward Missionary". Which means we work with the "white shirt & tie" missionaries to help find those who are seeking for God. Also, we look for ways we can serve and donate in our local communities. I regularly attend a Bible study every Monday. It's an "unofficial" meeting that I go to with friends in the Church. Then snacks and maybe a movie afterward. On Tuesday night I attend FHE (stands for "Family Home Evening") which being single and away from my family, all of us young adults get together and have a 15-minute lesson about Faith or another Gospel topic. Then we have a fun activity we do ex. decorate cookies, dating-games, soccer, job-help. Afterward, we stick around and play a little volleyball in the gym (inside the Church). I usually put on my music I have recently been Djing at clubs or dances with. It's always a blast!!! Great community of people all my own age, and we welcome visitors constantly!! One could show up unannounced and get involved quickly and have a great time.
