My name is Braxton Barnes. I am 18 years old. I live in a family of 5. I have one younger brother and one younger sister. We live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I graduated from Olympus High School in Holiday Utah. I love to play baseball, rock climb, mountain bike and snowboard.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness that it has brought me and my family. Being a part of the Mormon community has given me really close friends who go the thought the same struggles as me every day. They are all also trying to uphold the same standards. We can lean on each other when times get tough and when things go wrong. I am also a Mormon because I know that after this life Ill get to see my family again. I love spending time with my family, so knowing that I can be with them forever brings me so much happiness. I am excited to have the chance to be with them and live with my Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every week. I pray and read my scriptures daily to help strengthen my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I look for every opportunity to serve anyone because this brings me joy and happiness. I also live my faith by serving a full time mission. I am excited to serve the people of Boston.
