Hi I'm Braden White

I love adventures. I'm on an adventure right now serving a mission in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have many things I enjoy doing with my time. I love working on cars and learning more about everything, especially how things work. I enjoy fourwheeling, hiking, snowboarding, longboarding, and water sports. I love to take good care of the things that Heavenly Father has provided for me, including my family. I come from a family of 10; four older sisters, a younger brother, and then two more sisters. I honestly have the best family in the entire world. I have amazing aunts, uncles, and cousins to go along. We enjoy spending time together at our lakeside cabin in the summer. Our big family sure knows how to have fun together and have a good laugh. My awesome friends and family help me stay sane and enjoy the journey as they help and encourage me. After my mission, I'm attending BYU Idaho and can't wait for it!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a firm and unwavering testimony of the Book Of Mormon and the prophet Joseph Smith. I received my answer over many hours of study and pondering and asking God. I put in the effort and God has blessed me with a testimony and a desire to share it with others. I think there is no better way to show our love for God than to live this gospel, and then to share it. The atonement means so much more to me now that I've experienced it and I know it can help us all during hard times in this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. Back home I enjoyed doing service for widows in our ward, and it made me happy. Now I am serving the people of Pennsylvania by being a messenger of the restored gospel. I have gained such a love for these people and I know God loves all His children.
