Hi I'm Brittani!

I'm a nature lover & an organizer-extraordinaire. I love to laugh. I'm happily married to my best friend! And, I'm Mormon.

About Me

I'm trying to live life to the fullest and I'm finding joy in serving others as I go. I've found that God knows every desire of our hearts & He longs to help us fulfill every righteous desire we have. My name is Brittani Lee Van Wagenen & I am incredibly happy because I know that God loves me! :)

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into a Mormon family, I have always had the agency (or the right to choose) to decide what I want for myself in this life. I choose to be a Mormon [Latter-day Saint] today and every day because I truly have gained a testimony, through the Holy Ghost, that this Church is true. The Book of Mormon is the true word of God; and, along with the Bible, it is evidence of God's immense love for us. There are truly living prophets on this earth today, who receive direction and revelation for the whole world in these troubled times we live in. I choose to be a Latter-day Saint because I have personally felt the love that my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ have for me. I have come to know who I am through Their divine influence and constant concern for the direction of my life. I have received answers to my prayers more times than I can count, answers to questions only I have asked & not asked anyone else find their way to my heart. I am a Mormon because living the Gospel of Jesus Christ and accepting Him as my Savior feels more right than anything else. Living the Gospel makes me feel "at home" and at peace. :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying the best I can & involving God as much as possible into my life. Prayer has become my strength and my go-to choice for happiness. I know that God knows me and where I am in life; that's why I am constantly trying to improve myself, whether it is making sure the music I listen to and the shows I watch are uplifting, holding my tongue when I get upset, or going out of my comfort zone in order to increase the abilities and talents God is giving me. Living my faith everyday can be a challenge, but it has been far too rewarding for me to stop now! I'm not perfect, but I know that I am on the right path. God lives, He knows your heart, and He desires to bless you- let Him!

What is being a Mormon like?

It's having the knowledge of who you are as an individual, where you came from before you were born, and where you are going in this life and also knowing where you go when you pass away. It's living in this world knowing that there is something better waiting for you, so you strive each day to fulfill your individual purpose here and to make righteous choices to help you get there. It's being so full of joy and love for having the knowledge your soul longs to know; the knowledge that is available to all people on earth. It's knowing that you have a Father in Heaven who created you, knows you perfectly [and knows your name, your situation, your heartaches & desires] and knowing that you can return to Him with your family and happy forever because of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ is quite simple, yet it can change your life for the better. :) Show more Show less
