Hi I'm Brandon Mark Whiteley

Born in Houston Texas. Lived in Washington most my life. Was born into the church. Preparing now to serve a full time mission.

About Me

I am a 19 year old male who loves sports. I will play pretty much anything. I am very very competitive as well. I have played baseball and basketball since I was 4 years old. I have played on various levels of sports with AAU teams, all-star teams, select teams, high school teams. I love the games! I was also a starting quarterback when I played football. I am a good student, and I love to excel. I am tuff on myself because I am somewhat of a perfectionist. But that makes me work so much harder. I love photography. I am a creative and artistic person as well. I am about to go out and serve my mission for this church. I plan to return and then go to college to pursue the medical field.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love this gospel. I may have been born into this gospel but I have had experiences in my life that have given me the greater understanding of just how special this gospel is. And I know that this is something that I would not want to live without. That is why I want to go out and be a missionary. I want to spread this gospel and change lives for the better. Because I don’t think I would be the man I am today if I didn’t have this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to do good in all that I do. I try to be the good Christ like example to everybody. I live my life within the commandments. I help make my nonmember friends better by being a positive influence on them. And they respect me and what I live for. I live my faith by attending Sunday meetings every week. By going to youth activities every week, by participating in my quorums and the presidencies. I went to all 4 years of early morning seminary because I wanted to start my day with the spirit. I love to go to the temple and strive to always be worthy to attend it. I take any opportunity to go. I love to read the scriptures and go to all firesides available. I am going to serve my mission so that I can bring the spirit and gospel to all that I can.
