Hi I'm Brody Patrick

I grew up in Arizona. I love swimming, and I'm going on a mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was raised in the church by my mother and father, both of whom have always been amazing examples for me. I am the oldest of six children, and yes thats a lot. I have always been the one to set an example for them and it hasn't always been easy. Ive come to realize that i have a huge influence over them and thats always made me think of the spiderman quote, "With great power comes great responsibility". As cliche as it sounds its so true. I am a lifeguard on Clearwater Beach and i am also about to leave on my mission to Guadalajara Mexico.

Why I am a Mormon

The main reason why I'm a Mormon is because i am happy, and the knowledge that families can be together forever is what makes me a happy person. Who wouldn't want to live forever with those they loved. There is a quote by Jeffrey R. Holland and it says, "In this Church, what we know will always trump what we do not know. And remember, in this world, everyone is to walk by faith". This quote means a lot to me because it tells us that we shouldn't let what we don't know, get in the way of what we do know... and thats powerful. I know that through Jesus Christ we can all be changed for the good, and thats all that really matters. Change.

How I live my faith

I have been called of God to go and serve his people in Guadalajara Mexico for two years. This will be one of the biggest ways i live my faith, because i am putting everything else on hold in my life to do this. But I've come to understand how much god loves and cares for me. He has given me everything in this life, and it would be extremely selfish of me to not give Him back two years of my life in selfless service. Thats how i live my faith.
