Hi I'm Brayden Flack

I grew up in Wyoming and was raised in the church. I love to serve. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an avid sports fan. I absolutely love football, basketball and baseball. I host a radio show and currently work as a journalist. I love to write and express my opinions with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this is Christ's full gospel. It's the same yesterday, today and forever. He restored his church through the prophet Joseph Smith who saw what he said he saw. I've gained a personal testimony through experiences I have had with the spirit. When it comes to explaining how or why things happen, I turn to the scriptures for answers and they always seem to come. The priesthood is a power that only the true church can have. I've seen it work and perform miracles in my eyes. God watches over us and he cares about us. When you take a step back and look at everything in perspective, His plan is eternal and perfect. There is no other way than through Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly trying to be a Christ-like example in my every day life. I attend my church meetings weekly and also serve when I see fit. I also have lived my life accordingly to be able to receive a temple recommend. I also love reading the scriptures and pray regularly to increase my faith in God.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Brayden Flack
Baptism is one of the saving ordinances that helps us to become closer to God. Because we believe in a fair and just God, we believe in proxy. Proxy means that a living person may step in place for a deceased person. Therefore, baptisms for the dead are essential for the creator's work. All should have an equal opportunity, and that is why temples are so important. This also leads us into the topic of family history. As you can see, the work we do for the dead is very important to their salvation and our own. They need us and we need them. Show more Show less
