Hi I'm Brian

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I love running and training for races. I recently graduated high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love running and pushing my body to the limit. I recently trained to run the mile and I set a personal record of 4:18. I just recently graduated high school and I plan on attending Brigham Young University after I serve a 2 year mission in Colombia. I hope to one day go into the field of pediatrics, though I'm not sure what I want to do specifically in that field.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I studied the Book of Mormon, prayed about it, and then received an answer from my Heavenly Father. While I was raised in the church I had a unique situation, my Dad is not a member of the church. While I always figured the church was true because of the example my mother set and the feelings I would get in church, I was never completely convinced because of my Father not being a member. This forced me to have the desire to find out for myself the truthfulness of the gospel. I became determined to read the Book of Mormon and as I read it I prayed about it. Multiple times felt a warm feeling that I can never replicate any other time than when I am reading the Book of Mormon or participating in a church activity. This proved to me and helped me gain the knowledge that this church has something special and as I continued to study more and put more faith in this church I was able to gain a stronger knowledge and understanding of the gospel. This gospel brings me a great amount of happiness and joy and it is something that I never want to be without.

How I live my faith

I am the leader of the boys in my youth group. I help make sure that everyone is doing ok if we haven't seen them for a while and I try to help organize fun activities that we can all do together. I also am a member of the youth committee for a part of the Houston area. We plan and organize dances and activities for all the youth to get together and have a good time together.
