Hi I'm Brent Nelson

I love to read, swim, play sports, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to read. I was a state swimmer in high school. I have seven siblings and they mean the world to me. I am an uncle to 5 girls and 2 boys. I love playing ultimate frisbee and basketball. And I am a missionary in the Mississippi Jackson Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the things which I have come to know. One night when I was 17, I decided to find out for myself whether or not the things which I had grown up being taught were true. So I read the Book Of Mormon for the first time in my life. And as I came to its end, I prayed vocally for something other than the food for the first time in my life. During that prayer the Spirit witnessed to me that the Book Of Mormon was true. I am forever indebted to my Father in Heaven for reaching out and finding me when I was lost. From that day I have learned that the Book Of Mormon is true, The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church on the Earth today, and above all I now know that Jesus lives. That He loves me and that my Heavenly Father will always be there to guide me back to Him. I am a Mormon because I read the Book Of Mormon and I know it is true. And because nowhere in this life have I ever felt as joyful or at peace as when I am living the Gospel of Jesus Christ as laid forth by His Apostles and Prophets on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

I have found that no greater joy, peace, or success can be found than when I am living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I try my best to live the way the Master taught. And I am a missionary!
