Hi I'm Braxton

I have grown up in the small ol' state of Wyoming, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Well, kind of to kick things off, i'm a huge fan of sports. About anything with a ball and i'll watch and usually enjoy watching. But I love playing guitar, messing around on the piano, playing football, basketball, or baseball, I'm pretty big on all different types of music. I LOVE bull riding, it's a real good adrenaline rush in my opinion. I love hanging with my friends, I tend to have days where I can talk to new or different people, and then other days where i'll kind of cower into my shell. I am currently serving in the Madrid Spain mission! EXCITING!!! I've had my family struggles in life, and other struggles, but hey who hasn't! We all can overcome!

Why I am a Mormon

This church is true. I'm a Mormon because everyday that I wake up in the morning and do the things I am asked to do by the Lord, I know for a fact that i'm doing the right thing and I belong to the true Church. Being a Mormon some people may make it sound like Mormons are a different group of Christians, but we're people just like everyone else, our beliefs are just a lot different;) I know this gospel is true. I know my elder brother Jesus Christ, live and died for me. And when He atoned in the Garden, He atoned for not only my sins, but every person on this earth's sins as well. I know Joseph Smith was a true Prophet and saw Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father in the grove. I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know because I have read it, I have read every verse and every chapter in it and I still have a lot more to learn, which is why I continue to read it. I know it is the keystone to our religion and without it, we would crumble to the earth. I know Thomas S. Monson is the true and living Prophet today and receives revelation for the Church and for us and how we can become better people. I know that missionary work is a strong power, I know that I have been called to serve in Spain because there are people that I can touch that others can't. I know this gospel is true. I know it with every bone in my body and I will always be grateful for all it does for me. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Well, I have been preparing for a mission since i was about 4 or so, just watching all the Elders leave and seeing the name tags was pretty inspiring. I'm not the best at my home teaching like I should be, but I continue to try everyday. I do all that I can to help the church in any way I am needed. I know the Lord needs his servants in any way possible and I can't wait to serve my mission in Spain! I'm beyond excited!

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Through prayer and thanks to our Heavenly Father I believe that we go through experiences throughout our lives that increase our faith in Christ tremendously. God sent us here to experience life and to be tried and how we handle those trials is our decision and our faith in Christ becomes stronger and stronger as we continue to learn and grow. Christ will never leave us feeling alone, we always have him to look on. Our faith grows through prayer and through the spiritual experiences we are given each day. Show more Show less
