Hi I'm Brian Passey

I grew up in Southern California and then Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have been married since 1988. We have four daughters and three grandchildren. I've work in government finance my whole career. I graduated from BYU and my wife attended Utah State. I love traveling, fishing, camping, hiking, and anything that enjoys God's beautiful earth!!

Why I am a Mormon

As a 5th generation member, I believe as strongly in Jesus Christ and this restored church as my pioneer ancestors who came to Utah 170 years ago to make a community where everyone could worship and give thanks for a free and glorious country that our Founding Fathers pictured. I read the Book of Mormon for the first time when I was 15 and immediately believed it. I could see the persons and events in my mind as I read those pages out of that holy book. I encourage all to do the same and enjoy the wonderful blessings it can and WILL give you!

How I live my faith

I am a lifelong member, 5th generation devout member whose ancestors left homes in the Eastern U.S. to come West and enjoy the wonderful freedoms of religion and all that this church and country have to offer! I enjoy teaching others about family history right now. I also enjoy sharing music talents of piano playing and singing for the enjoyment of others and to worship God. I love teaching others and sharing a testimony I have of the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. He came to earth over 2,000 years ago, and he will come again.

What is being a Mormon like?

Brian Passey
I am happy knowing my Heavenly Father loves me. I am also happy that my elder brother Jesus Christ loved me enough to die for me and bear the burden of my sins, if I repent of them. I enjoy sharing my happiness with others and love to hear others say that they can see how happy that I and my family are by how we act and treat each other. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Brian Passey
The Book of Mormon is the keystone to my personal happiness and belief in the purpose of my life here on earth as well as the life hereafter. It will forever be the most central part of me. Show more Show less
