Hi I'm Brittany

I am a wife, mother, friend, and musician. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ because it has filled my life with joy and meaning.

About Me

I am a wife and stay-at-home mother who loves music and spending time with others. I enjoy being part of a book club, playing the viola in a symphony orchestra, and teaching music lessons for fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love knowing who I am and where I am going. I know that I am a child of God and that someday, after lots and lots of practice on my part, I can be like Him. I am a Mormon because I believe that through sacred ordinances in holy temples, families can be united eternally. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that this is His church upon the earth today. I am a Mormon because I believe that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know and feel the truthfulness of the gospel as I live gospel principles. As I live gospel principles, I feel so happy and fulfilled. I know that this is the Spirit telling me that what I am doing is right.

How I live my faith

Every day I live my faith by practicing to be a little better. Every day and every moment, I live my faith by striving to be more patient, more gentle, more loving, more giving, and more aligned with my Heavenly Father's plan for my life. Each morning, I check in with my Heavenly Father through prayer. I thank Him for our home and family, and pray that I can be happy and patient with my toddler, and loving and supportive as a wife. I strive to align my goals with what He would have me do. Who I can serve today? What should I do? I sacrifice time to read my scriptures each day, and the spirit touches my heart, inspiring me to be better. I gain a testimony of the truthfulness of the words, and learn just how much Heavenly Father loves us. While doing housework, or tending to my little one, I listen to music that inspires me to be better. I avoid profanity, vulgarity, and harsh rhythms because I find that I can feel the Holy Ghost better when I listen to uplifting music. Sometimes I listen to talks by modern-day prophets as I go through my day. This helps me feel the Spirit, and again, to realign myself with God's plan for me. I try to remember others as I go through my day, and strive to be the Lord's hands here on earth by serving and loving others. Oftentimes, this means a smile. Sometimes, I will help tend someone's children, or give someone a call. Ultimately, I live my faith through practice, lots and lots of practice. Sometimes I make mistakes. But, because of my Savior, Jesus Christ, I have the opportunity to change and become better, even to become more like Him and my Heavenly Father. I can practice each day because I know where I am going. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches me of my divine heritage and what God has in store for me. I have a vision of my potential and know how to get there because of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
