Hi I'm Brittany

I married my high school sweetheart. I love to sing. I'm frequently referred to as a firecracker, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old and have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 5 years. I served a mission from February 2010 to July 2011 in Orlando, Florida. I married my high school sweetheart in December 2011. We are expecting our first baby in November. My husband and I love to play music together and play games. We also enjoy sweets! I love making desserts, mainly cookies. My husband and I are very happy and owe it all to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was first introduced to the church when I was 15 years old. All of my friends were Mormon and were great examples to me. They made sure to include me in every activity and did their best to share the gospel with me. I finally decided to be baptized when I was 17, and my now husband was the one who baptized me. I had a lot of people ask me if I joined the church just because my boyfriend and best friends were Mormon. That isn't the reason at all. I loved feeling loved when I came to church. I was loved by the members, but most of all I actually felt love from my Father in Heaven. I had never really felt it before. I was taught how to feel and understand the spirit, and that made all the difference. My Father had been there the whole time, but I wasn't listening. Joining the church changed my life. I was such an angry girl, and now I have no reasons to be angry. I am happy knowing who I am. I am a daughter of the most supreme Being. That's a big deal! I love this gospel so very much. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband who is dedicated to the Lord. Together, we will raise our family to also know who they are and who they represent. There is a great feeling of security and peace that comes with following Christ. I know how much the true gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed me, and I know it has blessed many others. It will continue to bless others until the whole world hears and knows that Jesus is the Christ.

How I live my faith

I love teaching the gospel. I really got a hunger for it as a missionary. I loved spending all day every day teaching others about Jesus Christ and His gospel. My husband and I now teach a marriage and family class in our ward. We were so happy to have received a teaching calling, and especially love being able to teach as companions. The best way to learn more about the gospel is by teaching it. I very much believe that. Now, with a new baby coming, we can start teaching even more at home! It's a great experience.
