Professor, Brigham Young University
The Pornography Trap
Brad taught sixth grade for three years before joining the faculty at BYU in teacher education. He has worked with the Especially for Youth (now For the Strength of Youth) since 1985. He loves how most children and youth are so authentic, honest, and fun to be with. In many cases, they have not yet learned to hide behind masks the way some adults do. He loves feeling like he can make a difference in their lives.
Brad says, “I don’t know the names of many people who have won Academy awards or Nobel prizes. I can’t tell you the names of every Olympic gold medalist or sports star. However, I can give you names of teachers and youth leaders who made helped me, loved me, and mentored me during my growing up years. I think we all can. I am profoundly grateful for them and hope to be one of those teachers and leaders for the next generation.
He also mentions, “I love learning whether that takes the form of reading, writing, or traveling. I love pepperoni pizza and peanut M&Ms, but I realize that doesn’t sound too healthy so I am trying really hard to learn to love salads.”
He currently serves as the first counselor in the Young Men General Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He and his wife Debi have four children and nine grandchildren.
