Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Utah. I'm a missionary. I love basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated high school and am getting ready to serve my mission in Arkansas. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. I love playing basketball. I play the piano and organ.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the LDS church my whole life. The church has always brought me so much joy as I participate in it. Whether it is Sunday meetings or weekly activities it has been a blessing in my life. As I have strived to live the gospel I have noticed it has made me happy and helped me progress. Reading my scriptures has helped me grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ which is such a huge blessing in my life. I can't imagine where I would be if I didn't have the church in my life, but I don't think I would be as happy as I am now. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I play the organ for church every other week. I teach the little kids about the gospel every week. I read my scriptures and pray every day.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Brandon
Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration of the gospel. With the help of God he translated the Book of Mormon so that we can all enjoy it. Joseph Smith spent his life helping others. He has done more for man than anyone except Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Brandon
The priesthood is the authority to act in God's name. All male members of the church who prepare themselves can receive this priesthood. When you have the priesthood God wants you to serve others. He has not given us this authority to use selfishly but rather to use to bless the lives of others. Some things that a man might do with the priesthood is a blessing on the sick or afflicted, performing church ordinances, and much more. I know that I have been blessed by the priesthood as my father has given me blessings and as I have participated in church ordinances and I am so thankful for it. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Brandon
To have faith is to hope for something. But when you have faith you are not passive. You are doing everything you can to act on that hope. If you have faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ you will repent. If you have faith in the scriptures you will read them. That is what faith means to me. Show more Show less
