Hi I'm Bryson Gurr

I grew up in Utah for eight years of my life. Moved out to Ohio for the past 11 years. I love outdoor activities and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student that is preparing to serve a mission in the Nevada Reno Mission. I've already completed a full year at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I've played a couple sports. I've played baseball for about 8 years and soccer for about 13 years. I love being outside and enjoying nature and the beauty that it is. I've worked landscaping for most of my working years as a teenager and have loved every minute of it. I was able to make new friends and become better friends with my boss.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the Mormon church all my life so its the only church that I have known. But my parents have never forced me to gain a testimony of this church. I have found out for myself through prayer and reading of the Book of Mormon that this is the true church of God. I didn't really know it to be true until I was about 12 years old. I still didn't understand everything but as I took the challenge at the end of the Book of Mormon to pray and ask if the book is true, I received an answer to my prayer and if the Book of Mormon is true, how can this church not be true. I still don't understand everything, but I am learning and will continue to learn throughout my life more about this wonderful church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always fulfilling my callings that I have in my church. I was a teacher for one of the adult men classes for a couple months and now I am a ward missionary. With the ward missionary calling, I am a liaison to the young men of our ward and help them with certain events in which they could participate in. I help plan out and make sure that the events are carried out. I also always strive to live how I know I should. Especially when I'm at work, my coworkers know that I am a Mormon and the respect me for the standards that I live. They always ask questions and I answer them as best as I can.
