Hi I'm Brittany!

I grew up in Washington state and am now in school studying Marriage & Family Studies! And I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I have been married for almost a year and I have to say, I recommend it! I am able to be with my best friend all the time! It's amazing! I love reading! That's probably my favorite hobby! I also love learning about other cultures and places. I lived in Russia for 15 months and came to love being with people from different backgrounds. You learn so much about yourself and life in general, when looking at it through another perspective. I love being outside, especially if it's anywhere around the ocean! Hiking is another favorite hobby of mine! I have one older brother and one older sister. And thanks to them, I have three very adorable nephews, and five beautiful nieces! I am studying Marriage & Family Studies in hopes to one day be able to help couples and families through any stress in their lives. Family is so important to individuals, and to a society!

Why I am a Mormon

In the world today there are a lot of different influences wanting our attention. In living the gospel, those influences are still there but they become less and less by the day. I have learned through study and prayer to my Heavenly Father that there is in fact a plan for me on this earth. I don't ever feel lost or lonely in my life because I know that I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who is always there for me. And through His gospel I have peace and joy in life even when trials (that always come) start to appear.

How I live my faith

The church has given me multiple opportunities to serve others, mainly through the women's organization. I have organized activities for youth and have served a full-time mission (18 months) helping others learn more about the gospel. Through these experiences I have learned to be more patient and compassionate towards people. It has taught me that it is important to look at people the way Christ would see them.

Are Mormons Christians?

Christian means that someone is a follower and believer in Jesus Christ. Although the church is widely recognized by the name "Mormon", the church is called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The church bares His name because it is in fact Christ's church. We believe in Him, we follow Him, and we teach others of Him so that they can also know of Jesus Christ's mission and how He plays a role in their lives. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think of my Savior and what He has done for me. He is the central figure in my life and I know that it is because of Him that I have peace and joy daily.
