Heeyyy. Im Brock! I LOVE red, cruising on my vespa while jammin to some sweet tunes, and... YeaahHH :)
Well.. A couple years back I had some things that were holding me down from true happiness... Had some minor problems, never thought much about them until I saw my friends stop their ways and start preparing for missions. I never really thought a mission was for me and thought I was happy for the time being so why the need for change? I grew up in the church, my family is all for it, but I always just coasted on my parents testimony and also just didn't really want to center my life around the church. One day I kinda just went for it after one of my friends was just getting ready to leave on his mission, I just focused on it and wanted to find it for myself for the first time, and not because someone else was telling me to do it! "Ask and ye shall recieve.." So i did just that, I asked... and well I recieved! Its so crazy how much God loves each and everyone of us.. I can't even believe sometimes, why he loves me the way he does! I never really took the time to sit down and think about it but now I try to do it as often as possible. Even just going outside, listening to music and watching nature form right before your eyes, is SUCH A BLESSING!!! I know without a doubt in my mind this church is true.... Anyone that claims it's wrong is only preventing themselves from an everlasting happiness that I KNOW, is real. I think one of the gnarliest parts about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the freedom you get from guilt when you turn to our Heavenly Father.. One of the greatest joys I have in my life is the peace I get when I simply turn to Him, and its why being a missionary is super RAD! To help the people who need it, recieve it!
I live my faith like anyone else does, THE BASICS: Scrips, Prayer, and Church. Its definitly something that comes with time and PATIENCE. "Line upon line, precept upon precept." But it will come! Just give it time ;) I used to be a teacher back home for the 8 year old kids, SUPER incredible. There is nothing like the testimony of a little child, so innocent yet so powerful, It truely gave me a reality check on how real this is. I think one of the biggest ways that I live my faith is by honestly sitting back, and watching God's hand in every aspect. For example, watching a nice sunset, taking a good hike, basically living life as it goes by! There is NO way that this happened for no reason... GOD LIVESS!
