Hi I'm Braden

I grew up in corn country, Indiana. Now I'm serving in Cochabamba, Bolivia I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be with my family, I come from a big family of 10. I have three adopted siblings. I love vocal jazz, multivariable calculus, and running hill repeats. I have a pretty unique life. I am going on a full time mission for two years to Bolivia.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love to be happy. I know that the gospel brings true joy. I know that Christ lives, and that God is real, and that he loves every single one of us. I know that we are children of Heavenly Father and that he loves us; so much he sent his son to die for us and to perform his infinite atonement. I know that if we are righteous we CAN live with him again. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called of God, and that Thomas S. Monson is the true prophet of this latter day. I love the gospel, and the feeling of sharing that joy that I already love. I am a Mormon because I love to be happy and I know that following the gospel and Christ is the only way we can become truly happy with our families for eternity.

How I live my faith

I have been a branch organist, served as a deacons quorum president, teachers quorum president, and priests quorum first advisor. I have been home teaching with my dad since I was 12, and I love going on splits with the missionaries. I am a loving brother, a caring friend, and strive to be an example of Christ no matter where I am.
