Hi I'm Brady

I grew up in Utah without a testimony, but now I am proud that "I'm a Mormon".

About Me

I am a woodworker, I like to turn wood specifically. I like to play sports such as basketball and golf. Living the standards of the church have brought me happiness in my life. The future scares me sometimes, and that is why I am so happy to know that this is the true Gospel, and what I am on earth to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I keep thinking to a time when I had felt so strongly like I needed to go to a family party even though my parents didn't want to go, so I went, and the spirit there just touched my life more than I could imagine. It was shortly after my grandparents had returned from their mission and they had a little time to share their testimonies, and when my Grandpa said that he KNEW the Gospel was true I started to cry because it made me realize I know it to, and I wasn't following it like I should. I look back to that day as the day that I decided I would figure out for myself if I really did feel it was true. It was a long road, but over time I started to follow the Gospel again and am so grateful I listened to that prompting to go. Since that time I have served a mission, during the time I spent my Grandfather passed away. Each time I think about his influence in my life I know that he still is there, that there is an afterlife for each and everyone who lives. I am grateful to know the Plan of Salvation, it carried me through the time away from family when I found out my Grandpa had died, and it carries me through the struggles I am still faced with.

How I live my faith

There are many ways in which I believe that Mormons stand out. As a student in High School I struggled with profane language and found that when I avoided it I felt like I was an example. This was one small way I came to know that the LDS Church's standards separate us from the world. Since that time I have met a great deal of more people, from all sort of ethnicity and backgrounds. Each experience I have had helps me to see how important it is to me to know that I have a purpose, a Father in Heaven who loves me, and the opportunity to change. I strive now to show others how living like Christ can make us happier than anything in the world, Living according to church standards helps me to set that example.
