Hi I'm Braden

I was raised in Utah. I am a rugby player. I am a film and video editor and broadcaster. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a high school graduate preparing to go on a mission. I was very involved in high school. I played football and rugby, I made videos and entered the film festival, and I was a part of my schools Seminary Council. I have been called to serve a mission to Kobe, Japan and I report to the MTC August 3rd 2016. I can't wait to go and serve the Lord and share the knowledge of the restored gospel to the people of Japan. Upon returning home, I am planning on attending BYU-Provo to get a college education.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this church is true. I have been reassured of it time and time again. I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to my heart the truthfulness of this gospel. The teachings of the scriptures have uplifted me and made my the happy and bright person that I am today. I am so glad that I have this direction in my life and this knowledge of who I am and who I have the potential to become. I have had hardships in my life and times when I felt like I just couldn't go on, but through it all the Lord has strengthened me, and each time it only strengthens my testimony of this gospel as I more fully recognize Christ drawing near unto me and lifting me through my adversity. I will follow Him and His servants to the bitter end. I know that He lives. I know that he has a prophet on this Earth and that he is Thomas S. Monson. I will go where he wants me to go, and I will declare his good word all along the way. I am who I am today because of this Church and I know that it is true. I say these things in the name of Him, my Savior and my Redeemer, Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I strive each day to be a light in this world. I hope to do as I covenanted when I was baptized and stand as a witness of Christ at all times, at all places and in all things. I have worked hard to be an example in my school while being a part of Seminary Council. I love this gospel and I love my Savior. I hope to be a tool in his hand as I carry on throughout my life, and I hope to invite all to come unto Christ in all things.
