Hi I'm Brendan Clavin

I enjoy swimming in the ocean, climbing tall rocks and riding skateboards. I speak Spanish, English and Southern. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the beautiful state of California. I love to do anything from surfing, skateboarding to rock climbing and backpacking in the woods. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Tennessee Knoxville mission which covers a large part of the southeast United States. I am preaching the gospel in the Spanish language. I will be going to Brigham Young University Idaho to study nursing after my mission to eventually be a nurse.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for many reasons. The first plain reason is because it's the only true church on earth that has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are so many blessings awaiting those that come to God's fold. I have seen so many amazing blessings that have come to my life from following God's plan for me. He loves each of us and is there waiting to guide us. Sometimes the plan is hazy and hard to see but He is there and He loves us. Through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have grown closer to our Father in Heaven and have learned to serve and love others.

How I live my faith

Currently as a missionary I have the beautiful opportunity to devote all of my time and energy to the Lord and this gospel. I have learned so much from others and also from my own experiences that have shaped me into who I am today. One of the simplest ways I live my faith is by serving others. From the smallest things like holding a door open or giving someone a smile to the larger things. Service is a pure way to show our love for others and our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and our Father in Heaven. Another way I live my faith is by sharing it with anyone and everyone.
