Hi I'm Brigitte

I love soccer, music, and my husband and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Brigitte. I've gone through a lot of changes lately, including graduating with my BS in Exercise Physiology, marrying my best friend, and moving across the country from where I grew up. Currently, we live in a beautiful town house while my husband is attending dental school. I am trying to be a good house wife while working. My hobbies include sports which I love, outdoor activities, camping, boogie boarding, skydiving, biking, reading, playing the piano, being with my husband/ family as much as possible, cooking, meeting new people, traveling, and enjoying life as much as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that being a Mormon has increased my relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I have come to know Him and love Him. He has become the harbor and the safe ground in my life. I turn to the Lord for all of my problems and know that He will help me. He gives me answers and I can feel His love for me daily. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church in these days and I feel so blessed that I have found the peace that comes through my Savior.

How I live my faith

My role in my local church is a pianist. I love being able to spread my love of the gospel through music. I play every Sunday and can really feel the God's love for me as I play. The music I play has a profound impact on my relationship with my Savior and also has an impact on those around me. My favorite way to live my faith is through service. Serving those in my community helps me feel His love and know that I am doing His will.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Being married for two months has made me an expert in marriage, at least I wish it had. We have been working on our marriage as hard as we can every day since we were married in June. A key that helps us stay happy is our faith in Christ. Because of the atonement, we believe our family will be together forever. This inspires us to work hard on our marriage and to learn to love each other despite our faults. This common goal has helped us remain faithful to each other and excited for every minute we are able to spend together. Faith in Christ unites us and helps our family remain close. We learned this idea from both of our parents, who used it in our individual families. Our families have remained united and have worked hard to stay close despite the miles that separate us. Families can be together forever. This principle is eternal in nature and gives us hope and strength to love each other unconditionally. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is an ancient record of a people who came from Jerusalem to the Americas. They wrote their stories, just as ancient prophets wrote theirs in the Bible. I believe it is a book with wonderful insights into Christ and his doctrines that coincide with the Bible. These two wonderful books work together to lead us back to our Heavenly Father and our faith in Jesus Christ Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Mormon Church services are welcome to all. The first service is Sacrament Meeting. This services includes church announcements including upcoming events and baptisms. We are able to hear from members of our congregation. They bear their testimonies of the church and teach us the doctrine as they know it. Each service begins and ends with a song and prayer, which I feel invites the Holy Spirit to guide the speakers and help me receive insight. We also participate in the Sacrament, in which we take time to reflect on Christ's atonement and how we can be better at keeping His commandments. It is a time for reflection and learning on how we can become more like Him. We also have a meeting for doctrinal learning based off of the scriptures. Then, we split into male and female classes for learning on basic doctrine understanding and our roles as members. Children are taught in a separate group setting after Sacrament Meeting.
