Hi I'm Brian

I grew up in Colorado. I snowboard, own a clothing company, and served a full-time mission in Portugal. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into a classic LDS family or six. I love life! I love to play sports, specifically soccer and snowboarding. I am currently going to school at Brigham Young University Idaho, as a Business Management major with an emphasis in marketing. I started my own clothing company and enjoy designing and using creativity to express myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I have witnessed the goodness of God, and have received an answer that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His church established on the earth. I have felt so blessed for the privilege to grow up in a family in which the gospel of Christ was taught. The love that I felt in my home helped influence me to make good choices growing up. There was a point growing up in which I started doubting my faith a lot, and I didn't want to waste so much time in my life doing something that I didn't know or believe in with a surety. Looking back at my life I saw and realized that all of the blessings of my life came from following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I later realized that I had always known that this church was true, I just didn't want to admit it. I didn't see that the blessings outweighed the trials. I now understand that nothing that is of worth comes easily, which applies to everything from relationships, to school, to life. If you want a good one, you have to work for it. I know that this is the Lord's church, and he restored it into it's fullness through Joseph Smith, a chosen Prophet. The love of God only makes sense if he made a way for us to return and live with him. If we are to live with him again, we need to prepare, and the only way to do that, is through being more like Him. The way that we prepare, is through His church.

How I live my faith

I serve my fellow man as much as I can. I recently returned home from two years as a missionary in Portugal. While I was there, I had the opportunity to preach and teach the gospel to the people, and help them come closer to Christ. I know that through faithful and loving service to others, that in turn our lives will greatly be benefitted.
