About Me

Hi, my name is Brian. I am a father of 5 wonderful children, 3 daughters, and 2 sons. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 27 years. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Zoology. I am a podiatric physician. I went to school in San Francisco California at the California College of Podiatric Medicine. I love playing basketball, hiking, reading, exploring new places, country music, watching football, and baking pumpkin chocolate chip bread. I love reading the scriptures and listening to conference talks. I love people and helping others when I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (mormon). I gained a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ when I was about 19 years old by studying, pondering, and praying The Bible, The Book of Mormon, The Pearl of Great Price, The Doctrine and Covenants, and the written and spoken word from modern prophets and apostles. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and an instrument in God's hands to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ back to the Earth. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, along with The Bible, and these 2 witnesses testify of Jesus Christ. I know that you can find out for yourself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true through studying, praying, and reading The Book of Mormon, like I have. I invite all people to take Moroni's (ancient prophet in The Book of Mormon) challenge to read and study The Book of Mormon, and you will know that it is true also. Moroni 10:3-5

How I live my faith

I love the Lord, Jesus Christ, and I try to be like him, even though I fall short quite often. I love reading the New Testament about the stories of the Savior: his birth, his life, his ministry, his parables, his miracles, his betrayal, false trial, atonement, crucifixion, and resurrection. I also love reading the Book of Mormon, and other scriptures because they testify of Jesus Christ, just like the Bible does, and now we have more than 2 witnesses of the life of Jesus Christ. I really love reading the parables of Jesus and general conference talks from today's apostles and prophets in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Prayer, service to others, charity, reading The Book of Mormon and The Bible, attending church, fasting, attending the temple, and studying the life of Jesus Christ, the Savior helps us to increase our faith. Show more Show less
