Hi I'm Bradon Garrard

I served in the Great California Ventura Mission, I love games and stories, I'm a firm believer in progress, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like video games, drawing, and music. I am currently serving in the California Ventura Mission. I was on the high school swim team for four years and even managed to letter in my final year. I earned my eagle scout award when I was seventeen years old.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I have been in the church my entire life and throughout this time I've grown and gained a testimony of the truth of this gospel through experiences that have tried and tested my faith and caused me to ponder search the scriptures and the will of our all knowing Heavenly Father. I know that this church is true and have a testimony that there is a living prophet today that gains true inspiration from our Heavenly Father and if we follow him we will be able to live forever in the kingdom of God. I also have a firm testimony that God loves us and speaks to us today and that the heavens are not closed but as the arms of our loving Savior are constant and open and never ending.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best I can be and live up to that which I stand for. I strive constantly to improve myself so that I can continue become more like my Father in Heaven and eventually be able to return back to his presence.

What is being a Mormon like?

Bradon Garrard
Being a Mormon means constantly progressing, in this state of mortal existence we are prone to weaknesses and mistakes, I firmly believe that this time we have here in this life is a time to learn how we through the Savior's atonement overcome these weaknesses and mistakes and continually progress and to strengthen our minds and spirits and to prepare to meet our eternal and loving creator. This life closely resembles that of a child leaving home and going out into the world to learn and to grow so that in time we can use those experiences to become stronger and help others around us.
