Hi I'm Braydon Barlow

I am a Mormon and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I grew up in Kaysville, Utah.

About Me

I have many different hobbies and interests. I love to play sports, especially tennis. I have been playing ever since I was eight. As a sophomore in high school, I was state champion in my 5A division. My favorite professional tennis player is Rafael Nadal! I also love to sing and listen to music. I took choir all throughout junior high and high school. I especially enjoyed singing in a madrigal choir my senior year. Music has always had a powerful impact on me. If I am not singing, listening to music, or playing a sport, you will find me spending time with my friends and family. Family is really important to me. I love my family with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I have chosen to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life in so many ways! Through the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have been able to learn my purpose in life, my potential, worth, and love that God has for me. By living the gospel, my relationships with my family and friends have been strengthened, my love for those around me has been strengthened, and my belief in Jesus Christ has been strengthened. I know that through Jesus Christ, we can overcome our sins and weaknesses, learn from our mistakes, and become the person God wants us to become. Our Heavenly Father loves us, wants to bless us, and wants us to be happy. I know that living the gospel of Jesus Christ is the path to obtaining true happiness in both this life, and the life to come. I love this gospel with all my heart and I know it to be true! Jesus is the Christ, and I know that He lives! "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Philippians 4:13).

How I live my faith

Throughout my life, I have received and participated in many church callings. One of my favorite callings has been home teaching. As a home teacher, I get assigned a family to look over and serve, and one day out of each month I visit the family, teach them a lesson, and then ask how I can best serve them. Through home teaching I have been able to meet a lot of amazing people, and create a lot of lasting friendships. Being a home home teacher has been such a blessing in my life!
