Hi I'm Brycen Williams

I live in St. George Utah. I enjoy sports and the outdoors. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am extremely competitive in all that I am doing, from sports to simple board games. This often causes me to be rude and angry whenever I am in any form of contest. As I am getting older I realize that a lot of the time I am too competitive. Anger and pride (which often comes with being to competitive) are driving away the spirit in my life. more recently I have found that it is possible to be competitive, yet still be kind to my competition, and not be prideful when I win.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in this church, but I have no always been converted. I believe that it is one thing to go to church and to pray everyday and read your scriptures, and is another thing entirely to be converted. I have gone to church my whole life and prayed and read my scriptures, but I have only gained my testimony two years ago. I became converted when I truly had the desire to know for sure if this was the true church and not rely on my parents testimonies. When I went to church not just to attend, but to learn. When I didn't read my scriptures, I studied and pondered its teachings. When I didn't just kneel down to pray, I Communed with my heavenly father and poured out my heart unto him. The Lord with bless you with your efforts. If you are just going through the motions he will bless you accordingly, and if you diligently study this gospel he will teach you and bless you with knowledge and greater understanding. the Lord wants to teach us, all we have to do is put in the effort and show him our desire.

How I live my faith

A lot of youth that grow up in the church take for granted the Gospel in their lives and I was no exception. After going through some personal trials in my life I have discovered just how much the Gospel means to me in my life, and how it can greatly bless the lives of those around me and especially my family. I try to bear my testimony of this to the youth that I know whenever I get a chance just hoping that maybe one of them will hear my words. I have also found that when I am kind and loving and serving the members of my family that my home is much more harmonious. It makes such a difference when we serve others how the spirit is able to dwell with us and with those around us. More recently I have been trying to serve others (especially my family) whenever I see an opportunity. It creates a great love and peace around you, and allows the spirit to be in you life.
