Hi I'm Brady

I'm a missionary in Tarpon Springs, I love to serve, I love my family and friends, Today is the best day of my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey I am Brady! I love to golf, play basketball, football, and all sports. I like go sing and play guitar. I love to hike in the beautiful state of Utah. I love to serve others and encourage people to stay positive in this tough world we live in. I am the oldest in a family of six. I love my friends and family. I am a missionary in the Florida Tampa Mission. I love driving down the coastline in the beautiful state of Florida. I am the luckiest guy in the world. I have a snuggie even though I live in Florida. I get to serve others everyday and be an instrument in bringing souls to Christ. I am grateful for my Heavenly Father and to Jesus Christ for allowing me to have the best day of my life everyday!

Why I am a Mormon

I have born into the church and raised on LDS principles, but I would say I wasn't truly converted until I was around 18 years old. Through junior high and high school I wasn't into the greatest things. I tried to hide who I was and I honestly didn't really love myself. I was always depressed and didn't enjoy life. A couple years ago I started to read the Book of Mormon for the first time and I felt better! I learned through sincere prayer to God that this is the true church. I have truly become converted to Christ. I know that Christ is the head of this church and we are all his instruments in running it and serving others in this world just as he would. I know that Christ loves us and there isn't anything we can do wrong that would keep him from loving us. His arms are always open and the minute we decide to turn our will to him he can help us. This gospel provides healing, hope, and happiness. I am living proof of that and so are many of the other great members of this gospel. I invite all to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. Feel the great spiritual strength that comes from reading it. This is true. It is of Christ. You can know too.

How I live my faith

I am full time representative of my Savior Jesus Christ every day and every hour out in beautiful Florida. I live my faith by loving everyone I see. I try to look in peoples eyes and see if they could use some cheering up. I love to read the scriptures every day. I receive so much strength through reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I love feeling the spirit every morning I study the gospel. I feel like the greatest way I can live my faith is by learning of the Savior each and every day and then going out and doing what I feel He would do. I have seen so many lives change out here as I have worked with many different people. Every person I have taught the gospel of Jesus Christ to, has been very unique in their own way, but the gospel has changed them in the same way. I know that the message we share as missionaries will bring peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

The answer is NO!! We help everyone that we can. Some members, like many people in this world who don't belong to the LDS church, are not very social. Some members are not comfortable stepping out of their boundaries and talking to new people and my only prefer only being around those who they are familiar with. It is sad when this happens but don't worry, WE ARE NOT ALL LIKE THAT! I love to help everyone around me and I know numerous of other members who would gladly help anyone in need. Even the church in general provides much relief to people in need all around the world. In Haiti, Chile, and other places where natural disasters have occurred, the LDS Church was one of the first aids of relief on the way. If you ever need help with something, talk with the local leadership of the LDS church and you can be assigned "home teachers". These two men that carry the priesthood of God and would be willing to help you with pretty much anything! Show more Show less
