Hi I'm Brent

The Utah mountains is where I call home. I'm a husband, father, and world traveler. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a business & marketing executive. I have a beautiful wife and 2 boys who are the center of my world. When I'm not working, you'll find me with my family on the baseball field, in greasy burger joints, or traveling the world in search of adventure. When it's time to really relax, I love sitting on the back deck with the family dog, picking my banjo or strumming my guitar.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life. During that time I have had non-member friends express that being a Mormon is about having to do everything you are told to do. The Mormon Church is not a church of force, but one of choice. I choose to be a Mormon, not because I have to, but because I want to. I love the way I feel when I am learning and living the gospel teachings of Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints emulates the Savior's teachings, giving me the guidance, encouragement, and support to be a better husband, father, and person.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is more than just going to church on Sundays, keeping the commandments, and not drinking or smoking. It's about compassion and forgiveness. It's about service and acceptance of others. It's about trying to live your life as Jesus Christ did. As I try and pattern my life after the Savior's, I live my faith by doing. I look for ways to help others through neighborhood, community, and church service. In doing so, I have served as youth sunday school teacher, boy scout leader, and young adult advisor in my ward and neighborhood. I've participated in disaster relief projects for third world countries as well as projects in my own community; and in doing so, I have always tried to show compassion and understanding to those I have served.
