Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Utah. I am a recent high school graduate and am excited for the adventures of life that await. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like to learn things. Specifically different hobbies or skills. I've loved music all of my life: from playing, piano, percussion, singing, and teaching myself other instruments, to just listening to other peoples music. Drawing and photography are other things that I enjoy spending my time on. Making people laugh and smile are two of the many things that bring me great joy. I love nature and the beauty of God's creation. I am the youngest in my family with three older sisters. I will be attending college after I complete a full time mission. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, honestly and simply, it makes me happy. I feel real peace and assurance every day because of what I know about the gospel. Being a member of this church has shaped, and continues to shape, me into the person I want to be. I find that I am a better, leader, friend, student, and person in general because of what I learn in this church. All of my happiness, joy, and success can be attributed to being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in church. In the past I have helped be in charge of planning youth activities and events. I also go to an assisted living home every week to sing uplifting hymns with my friends. I love to talk to the residents there and feel of God's love as I sing. Soon, I will be leaving for a church mission where I will get to teach others about what I believe.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Getting to know our Father in Heaven is very similar to how we get to know any person: we have conversations with them and spend time learning about them. So how do we do this with our Heavenly Father? We can talk to Him through prayer. If I talk to Him about the real concerns in my life He listens and helps me. We can learn about Him through reading the scriptures and the words of modern prophets. Another thing that has helped me is to follow His commandments and teachings. When I do what He has asked of me I feel of His love and I come closer to Him. This is true for anyone who does this. Show more Show less
