Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Cache Valley, Utah. I am the youngest of six children. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

Over the past few years, I have raised and shown beef cattle. I really enjoy being around and interacting with any animals, but especially cows. I also have raised puppies as a hobby as well as a fundraiser for me to be able to pay for my mission. I also enjoy spending time with my family, by playing card games or simply just talking with each other. In my family, I am the youngest with four older sisters. I have one older brother as well, who passed away due to heart problems when he was only a few months old. I love my family so much, and can not wait to meet my brother when it comes time.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Growing up I was always taught the truth and had the blessing of always attending church. My parents were amazing teachers as they taught me good habits of prayer and scripture study. As these habits have stuck around in my life, I have always felt the spirit while doing those things my parents taught. I have been through times where I wasn't as strong in these habits as I should have been, I could tell the difference in my life. I wasn't as happy, I did't feel as free, and those around me could tell my countenance wasn't as happy and bright. Feeling those feelings of being further away from the church is what has kept me strong in living the gospel.

How I live my faith

I organize and conduct Sunday School in my ward. I am to assign prayers, opening hymn, and a chorister, and make announcements before we hear the lesson each week. I am also a home teacher, which includes visiting a couple families in my ward. I have seen so many blessings come from visiting these families and have enjoyed getting to them and associate with them. If it were not for home teaching I would not have been able to get to know these families as well as I have. I also wouldn't have received the blessings that I have due to visiting and learning from them. In my ward, we have a young man who is disabled and has to use a wheel chair to get around. I have been blessed with the opportunity to bring this young man to church and sit with him through meetings. He has such a sweet spirit and by helping him out, I have received many blessings.
