Hi I'm Brody

I grew up in Kaysville Utah, went to Davis high, and am currently a senior at Utah State majoring in statistics. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah my entire life, and have been called to serve in the Winnipeg Canada mission. I'm in my second year of college at Utah State University enrolled as a senior majoring in statistics because the realm of applied mathematics fascinates me. I enjoy playing soccer, basketball, and golf. I also really like to play board and card games like monopoly, Yahtzee, and Uno. I have a rather unique taste in music with my favorite band being an indie group Quiet Hounds, my favorite album being Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, and my favorite song being Rhythm of Love by the Plain White Tees. My favorite director is Wes Anderson with his movie Moonrise Kingdom. My dream in life is to travel to every country in the world and collect a flag from each area.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the only church anywhere upon the earth that has all of the guidance and answers that anyone could want to know and be proven. Before my junior year in high school I went to a church camp in Nauvoo, and finished the Book of Mormon for the first time. I mean everything that I had read all sounded good, and I had no reason to doubt it. But I can honestly say I didn't know that it was the "word of god." So I found a spot outside the temple there, and knelt down and prayed about it, and I truly felt a strong impression on me confirming what I had been questioning. That the Book of Mormon is the word of god, and with that information I was able to believe in Joseph Smith. That he did see God and Jesus as he claimed, and that this church is the real answer. Another strong reason that I am a mormon is that I believe in Jesus that he really did come, and that his atonement is the single greatest achievement ever. In doing this great deed it only makes sense to me that Jesus cares about everyone so much. Visa Ve he had to have had his influence to help out the people of the Americas because there's no way that he didn't love them as well as the Jews.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is just by trying to be the best example that I can be while maintaining my personality. I have been called to serve as a missionary preaching in the Winnipeg, Canada mission. I enjoy serving people mostly because it makes me happy to see other people be happy because of my efforts and work. I do everything I can to be a good influence to those around me, mainly my girlfriend, to leave the best impression I can in the hopes that at least some of it will catch, and leave a good mark. I follow the commandments of god not because I am forced into it or because it's a social pressure, but because I know for a fact that it is the way to happiness and that when I do mess up I always feel better when I follow them.
