Hi I'm Brayden Allred

I grew up in Roy, Utah. I play Lacrosse and many other sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Brayden and I'm the third out of four kids. I have an awesome family. I love playing sports. I have played football, baseball, basketball, and lacrosse. I love hanging out with friends and watching good movies. I also love going places with my family. I love going to sports games with my dad. I just graduated high school and that was a lot of fun. I miss seeing all those wonderful people on a day to day basis. I on a mission in Chesapeake, Virginia right now. It is super beautiful and a lot of fun. The humidity is not very fun at all.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I love serving the Lord and love his true gospel. Because this is the restored gospel!!! God sent us here for a purpose and part of his purpose for me was to grow up in the church and go on a mission. I also am a Mormon because I won't deny that I know this church is true. I wouldn't be on a mission if I didn't know that is was true. If you want to know if it's true. Just pray to God with a sincere heart and tell him if he gives you an answer that you will act on it no matter what. I have the faith to know that God will protect me and do what I need and not what I want. So I am a Mormon because God knows this is his true church and I will follow him where ever he leads me!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be. I don't do anything that will bring disgrace to me or my family. I love helping people and I'm glad I'm going on a mission. Being out on a mission now I have realized why Christ says to love everyone. That is how you help people progress in this gospel and how you make them feel like they really do matter. By loving you show them that God has a purpose for them and that he is here to help you in any way you can. So I have been learning to love people and learning how to receive the gift of charity and be the man and missionary God wants me to be. I have also learned that faith is how you get through those hard days. Days that you think will never end. Something that has helped me is having the faith to look up to heaven and ask God to help get through this day with strength so I can do what he wants me to do for him!
