Hi I'm Bridger Coburn

I'm a Son, a Brother, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently 19 years old. I plan on attending college. I want to be a high school history teacher for my career. I love swimming, tennis, ping pong, and all things competitive. I love spending time with my family and friends. My family raised me in Layton, Utah. A great place where many of my friends had high standards and had a very positive impact on my life. I had a great family who always were a great example to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, I have felt the joy of the gospel come into my life. Being a member of this church has changed me to my very core. I have felt the change in myself and others have seen it. I am a Mormon because, I have come to believe the Book of Mormon to be true. That has guided me to believe that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and the Church he restored. The mormon church is Jesus Christ's kingdom on the earth. I am a Mormon because, I believe that this church is directed by Jesus Christ through the mouth of his Prophet Thomas S Monson. Because of this I can know what I must do to gain Eternal Life.

How I live my faith

I am now serving full time as a missionary. I am serving in the California Bakersfield Mission. We missionaries seek by the council of God to find people who are looking for peace, happiness, to reconcile with God, who are looking for answers to sincere prayers. We trust that as we obey Christ and strive to live as he lived. He will guide us to these people. And help us show them to way to Eternal Life.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Bridger Coburn
For me, there are so many blessing that come from paying tithing it far exceeds anything that we pay. But even if there we no blessings that came I would still pay it. Heavenly Father has given me an amazing family and friends that my life has been amazing! The least I could do is contribute 10% to help build his kingdom. Show more Show less
