Hi I'm Elder Braden K. Coulson

I grew up in Utah. I enjoy playing music, writing music, and enjoying life. Im a missionary in Osorno, Chile. I am a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Ogden utah and raised for all my life in the small town of Garland. Among my many interests I love playing music, people often ask me when I say that Im in the band here what I play. I often reply that the easier question is what I do not play, and to answer that I dont play the trumpet or the french horn. I also enjoy cycling around town and the streets.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon? I mean yeah that's the question above... but that's what we have to ask ourselves, because many are born into the covenant, and that is awesome! But the thing is we must ask ourselves why, and to that end I answer with is happiness. I enjoy my many hobbies above, but the one thing is that I would never be able to do it without my heavenly fathers help. My talents are merely a gift from him, and they make me happy as I glorify him with my actions. It's simple this gospel makes me the happiest I can be. My Mission will be the greatest time of my life and I will help so many people start on this path and come closer to our Heavenly Father. Realmente cosas son super simples para seguir nuestro Redentor Jesucristo. Yo amo mi Padre Celestial, sin las cosas que he recibido, yo soy nada. Gracias a mi padre. Y eso, and that, es por que, is why, Soy Mormon, Im a Mormon

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me, because as it is often said "Actions speak louder than words" because as it also said "Talk is cheap." To be credible in this world, your actions must live up to what you say, otherwise no one will believe you.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Elder Braden K. Coulson
For each person, the atonement of christ is a little different. For all it is mainly Christ giving himself to pay for our sins. But the thing is we sometimes forget that he paid for more than just our sins. He payed for when we were sick, when we had pain, and other things that are just here in life. I see that the atonement is his way of saying he will always be there for us. Many of us feel alone in this life and I as a regular human being have felt this way. However, knowing that he has paid so much for me, feeling my every pain, I realize it was his effort that gave me the perfect companion to go through life when I say "no one knows how I feel" I remember that there is someone that knows how I feel. But the Atonement of Christ is his gift to the world. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Elder Braden K. Coulson
Yes we can! We believe and teach that families can be together forever and lead lives that continue beyond this life if we seek Christ and his gospel. In which parts can "seal" or bind a family for eternity. Christ in his ministery gave his disciples the power to seal families, and when Jesus and his apostles were killed, the power was taken away from the Earth. When Christ and those alike with these powers or keys of the priesthood appeared to Joseph Smith Jr. and others in the Kirtland temple the keys to seal were restored to the earth. Now through our temples everywhere we can seal our families for all time and eternity, as well as man and wife. So yes, we believe Husband and Wife can be together forever! :) Show more Show less
