Hi I'm Brad

I have 5 kids and a wonderful wife. I'm a business owner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah. I have 2 brothers, 3 sisters, and 1 half sister. I didn't know she existed until I was 12 years old, and now she is a wonderful part of our family. I love sports. My first word was "ball." I spent a lot of time growing up watching (probably too much) and playing sports. I love music. I am familiar with the piano, dabble with the guitar, and I love to sing. I also enjoy ballroom dancing, though I don't get the opportunity to dance much. I served as a missionary in Japan on the island of Hokkaido, learned Japanese, and I would love to go back someday. I studied business at BYU, I enjoy analyzing and improving processes and systems, and I love learning. I have been married to my wife Janelle (who is amazing and I love her) for almost 11 years, and we have 5 children aged 1 month to 9 years. I am a business owner in the metal finishing industry, and I try to balance work, family, and church service. I often consider myself a "jack of all trades" (and master of none)

Why I am a Mormon

I first started reading the Book of Mormon when I was in 1st or 2nd grade. I remember taking it to school when we had a "reading day." I didn't read it all the way through until I was a teenager. I have never doubted it was true, but I have prayed many times about it. I believe Jesus Christ has given the Book of Mormon and the Bible to the world as a testimony of Him. He speaks today to prophets just as he did in Old and New Testament times. I know it is true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by extending invitations to others to come and be with us at church. I help organize missionary efforts in my area. I visit people in my area to encourage them and show love.
