Hi I'm Bryan

I live in Ohio. I want to go to school and study Political Science. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am serving a mission right now in Veracruz, Mexico. I was in several choirs while I was in high school. In 2008 and 2012 I was a volunteer for the presidential campaigns for Mitt Romney. I became an Eagle scout in January of 2013. I plan to go to school to either study political Science or whatever I need to learn. I probably wont find that out until after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my experiences in life and what they all have taught me. I have had so many events where my faith has been shaken or someone questions why I act in the way I do. When I feel down I think about how much my Father in Heaven love me. He loves me so much that He called a prophet, and his name was Joseph Smith. Because of Joseph Smith we now have the restored gospel on this Earth. Because of that restored gospel we now know what we can do to be able to return to live with our Father in Heaven again. I always love to take comfort in that.

How I live my faith

The best things to do are always the simplest. I read my scriptures, I pray, and I go to church. With everything that I have learned from those three things I am able to go out into the world and do my best to serve others. Even if it's as small as making someone laugh. I did several acts of service while I was working towards my Eagle Scout award ad well as service callings within my church. I take joy in knowing that when I am in the service of other, I am in the service of God.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

The Apostle Peter prophesied of the “restitution of all things” before Christ’s Second Coming (Acts 3:19-21). Having been lost because of the Apostasy, Christ’s Church and His authority were to be restored to the earth. This Restoration would make available the opportunity for all to receive once again all of the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith’s First Vision marked the beginning of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. In subsequent years, Christ restored His priesthood and reorganized His Church. He has continued to reveal truths to His prophets and to restore the blessings that were taken from the earth for a time. Show more Show less
