Hi I'm Britty
I am a convert to the Church. I am passionate about the environment. I am a homeschooler and a food allergy mom. I am a Mormon.
I'm 26 years old and joined the church when I was 17. I've been married for over 8 years and we have a wonderful 6 year old daughter. I'm a stay-at-home homeschooling mom and I love spending time with my family and teaching my daughter new things. I like cooking, learning to be more self-sufficient, singing, and serving others. I love learning about how I can be more eco-friendly and live a more sustainable lifestyle. I am a food allergy mom! My daughter has an egg allergy, along with very difficult seasonal allergies. It is a specific challenge God has given our family. I feel like it has opened us up to a world we wouldn't otherwise know about. Helping spread information about food allergies is something I've tried to do more of lately. Our family is currently helping to raise money to support research and education for food allergies. I am also a bisexual Mormon. I'm becoming more open about this part of my life so that others who are struggling with their faith or want to learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints know that there are members of the LGBT community who are faithful LDS members. Being a member of the Church with Same-Sex Attraction has made me more compassionate and understanding of others. It's brought me closer to my Heavenly Father while I've prayed about my specific needs and challenges.
Why I am a Mormon
Before I visited a Mormon church, I had no idea what it was about. I didn't know it was really called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I literally knew nothing about the religion. All I knew was that the nicest people at my school always turned out to be Mormon. I invited myself to my now husband's church meeting because I felt drawn to it. I've never been really interested in religion before, I wasn't the kind of teen you would expect to see at church. My parents are Christian, but we never went to church regularly, prayed other than at dinner sometimes, or read the Bible. I just really wanted to know what was different about this church that made my teenage friends so happy and kind. What I learned is so true to what I already knew in my heart, but hadn't found yet. I love knowing that we are all part of God's plan and that we can live with him once again. This church is the true restored church of Jesus Christ. My life has been truly blessed as I have been trying to live God's Commandments.
How I live my faith
My faith is an active part of my life and my family. I pray and read scriptures personally and with my family. I love serving in my church, community, and family. I like to use social media to share gospel messages online. I also love to talk about Christ with anyone wanting more information. I love visiting Temples! Whenever my family has to travel, I always plan our trips around local Temples. I feel like making them a focal point on our trips brings our attention to the gospel more and the saving ordinances done in the Temple. We like to get a picture of our daughter touching the Temple and making sure she understands how special we believe they are. As my husband and I strive to live the gospel principles, we hope we can encourage our daughter to seek her faith as she grows and gain her own strong testimony of Christ.
