Hi I'm Bryson

I was a captain of my high school wrestling team. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was very involved in High School. I was on the wrestling team, football team, and served on student government. I am now a Mormon missionary. Some of the things that I like to do are backpacking to remote lakes and catching all of the fish that are in them, laying in my hammock, playing strategy board games, and being with my family. My idea of a good vacation is taking my close friends and family up to a cabin by a lake. All we would need when we get there are a couple decks of cards, chocolate milk, fishing poles, hammocks, and some fun bike trails. I love eating the hot dogs at Sam's club and Costco if you ever go there you should try them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because being a Mormon allows me to know who I am and who I can ultimately become. There is great peace and joy that comes from knowing that. Being a Mormon also allows me to know that I am loved because I know that Jesus Christ loved me enough to die for me and provided a way for me to be happy forever. Being a Mormon has blessed my life with direction, knowledge, and happiness. I like the person that I have become while I have been a true Mormon. Being a Mormon allows me to find true peace and joy in the simplicity of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I come very short of perfection, and as human beings we all do. However I try my best each day to live the very best that I can through having good thoughts, being obedient to my church leaders, and treating those around me with kindness and care. Being a Mormon, I have responsibilities to help my church with it's physical and spiritual needs. I do my best to fulfill these callings and devote my time and effort to do the best that I can. I visit a few families in my ward and I am responsible to check on their physical and spiritual needs. I have been able to meet awesome people in my visits. Another part of living my faith comes with living in the world but not of the world. By that I just mean that while I do not shun myself from every bad thing in this world, I also I do not participate in the wicked things the world has to offer. I do not drink alcohol. I do not use tobacco. I respect myself and those I come in contact with. I try to be an example to those around me by doing so.
