Hi I'm Brad Simmons

I'm currently a missionary serving in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission!

About Me

I was born in California, near LA if we want to be particular. But I've grown up in Orem, Ut. So yes I'm pretty much a stereotypical Mormon.org profile. But that's alright, it lets my mission associates stalk me before I get transferred, and reek havoc in their lives. If I had to put all my hobbies in a list of three I'd say; baseball, music, filming and editing, making people laugh, driving with out TiWi, and Netflix. If I had to live on an island for the rest of my life I'd bring a boat so wouldn't have to live on the island. Next question. My favorite baseball team is the Dodgers. Galantis, Kygo, and Oliver Heldons are my favorite music artists. I also have been dabbling in creative writing, I've been about as creative as a Honey Badger chewing on crayons. A life goal of mine is to be able to grow a beard, then cut down a tree with an axe while wearing a red plaid shirt. Let's be frank here, we all have absurd dreams, so no judging.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed enough to be born into the church, but you still have to find out for yourself. When I read the Book of Mormon I get the impression that what I'm reading is correct. The more I've read the more I've come to know that it's truth. The writing styles, language, and doctrine show me that it's an inspired work. Joseph Smith had to be a prophet of God, there's no refuting it.

How I live my faith

I get to live my faith currently (2016) by serving a mission in Pennsylvania. I get to teach people about the Book of Mormon. There's not too much that makes me happier than giving out a copy of the Book of Mormon. Actually there's plenty of things, refer to the About Me section. But it keeps me happy enough to wear pants in the humid summer, be bashed with, and live off pop tarts for two years. Totally worth it. (If it's not 2016 and you're reading this I've probably been too busy making fire mix tapes.)
