Hi I'm Braden

Web Developer and Musician. Studying Biomedical Engineering. Loves the outdoors, family time and meeting new people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and am the fourth child in my family. I have three older siblings, one brother and two sisters, and one younger sister. My immediate and extended family are faithful members of the LDS Church which has proved a great blessing for me. I'm a musician and have played the clarinet for six years and enjoy writing music to share. I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and many other outdoor activities simply because I love surrounding myself with nature. I served a two year mission in Natal Brazil and truly love the people and the culture there. Such a wonderful people to be around and live with. I am currently attending the University of Utah and studying Biomedical Engineering and will probably enter pharmacy program and work in drug research and development.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this gospel but had to come to my own knowledge of its truthfulness. I am a Mormon because as I grew and discovered the truth I found happiness, something everyone in the world is looking for. I have discovered that through my diligence to the gospel, keeping the commandments, and repenting of mistakes that I have made, I feel a comforting peace and joy that the world cannot give. I know that as I continue to live in the manner as my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have set, I will never lose these feelings, such feelings that the world can never give.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being obedient to the things that my Heavenly Father has asked of me. I attend all of my church meetings, strive to keep all of the commandments, read from the scriptures (especially the Book of Mormon), and pray daily. I seek to serve those who are around and treat others as Jesus Christ would. I enjoy sharing my testimony and the gospel with others and want to help them come to a similar knowledge of the gospel as I have. I know that being on this world we will make mistakes, but it is through the love of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father that we can repent and be made clean if we continue to do our best to follow Christ. Also, I showed a lot of faith in serving a two year mission in Natal Brazil, and was greatly blessed in all aspects of my life. I also witnessed a lot of personal and spiritual growth.
