Hi I'm Brecken

I was born and raised in Utah. I'm currently serving a mission in Macon, Georgia. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Brecken and I'm 19 years old. I'm currently serving in Macon, Georgia as a full-time missionary.The little things in life make me happy. My hobbies include volleyball, cooking, climbing, hiking, and reading. I have one older sister, two older brothers, and a baby sister. My parents are the most loving and supportive people I know. My family means everything to me. Good thing families are forever!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the Church all of my life. However, I came to a point in my life when I questioned everything. I questioned if Joseph Smith was a prophet, if the Book of Mormon was true, and if there was even a God. I felt completely alone and hopeless. I asked sincerely to my Father in Heaven if this church was true and I felt a little twinge in my heart, and I knew it was true. That was it: a little bubble in my heart. Later after that experience, I questioned God on why I had doubted everything. He gave me two answers. The first was I didn't have my own testimony. Growing up I had relied on my parents, siblings, and my friends testimonies, but when it came to absolutely doubting that testimony I had nothing to fall back on of my own. The second was I learned how to use the atonement of Christ. I felt completely alone and like nobody knew what I was going through. But I was wrong. There is somebody that knows exactly what I was going through. He knows exactly what you're going through as well. He died to know what we are going through. Jesus Christ really is our Savior. And he is always willing to bring us back if we ask Him. The atonement of Jesus Christ is real. If it wasn't I would not be on this site testifying that God is real. He will never give us anything that we can't handle. And that's why he sent His son. Jesus is the Christ. The one that is willing to take upon ALL of our burdens. He lives. I testify that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that he fully restored this gospel. He correctly translated the Book of Mormon and I know that book is true. President Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet. I sustain him and I love him. I testify of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in Macon, Georgia. Before my mission I loved my calling as a Sunday School teacher. This calling really helped solidify my testimony. It also made it grow because I really had to know if what I was preaching was real, and I'm here to testify that it is true. It all is! I loved how the Spirit worked through me to touch me and my students personally. I learned that the Spirit speaks to everyone differently. The Spirit seeks everyone, and it can touch you too.
