Hi I'm Brittain

I am a teacher, an avid movie watcher, and a devoted friend. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a first grade teacher and I absolutely love what I do. I am an obsessive reader and movie watcher. My family and friends mean everything to me. I am a firm believer that everything in life has a purpose and is meant to teach us something.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to be a member of the church for my entire life. When I was in my middle teen years I came to a point in my life when I needed to find out for myself if the church as true and stop leaning on the testimonies of my family and my church leaders. I struggled with knowing why I was attending church. Was I going because I wanted to or because my parents wanted me to? As I studied the scriptures and prayed like I had been taught all my life to do, I still felt like I had not received an answer about whether or not the church was true. Through this, I decided not to give up and continued to plead with my Heavenly Father to help me to know if the church was true, to know if this gospel that I had been learning about my entire life was really the truth. I did receive an answer, and to this day I have never again doubted my testimony. That is not to say that since that time my life has been perfect, because it certainly has not been. But because I know that this church is true, and I know that my Heavenly Father and my brother Jesus Christ love me, I know that the trials I go through are really for my benefit. I know that I am a member of the true church of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior and I am so grateful for the sacrifice he made for me. By giving His life, He has made it possible for me to return to Him and live for eternity. I am so thankful to have the gospel in my life. It has made me the person I am today.

How I live my faith

I absolutely love to read the Book of Mormon and to find ways that the teachings found there apply to my life. I look for opportunities to share my testimony of the gospel with others so that, hopefully, they can feel some of the joy that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings to my life. I have been called to serve as a missionary in the Canada, Calgary mission. I show my love for my Heavenly Father by being willing to serve Him for 18 months and doing all I can to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who I come in contact with. I am trying to live my life in a way that will allow others to know that I know that this church is true and I treasure the joy that it brings to my life everyday!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

If you want to know if Mormonism is true, do what I did and pray. Pray a lot and with a real and true desire to know if the church is true. Study the Book of Mormon. Pray about it's truth. When you are ready, the Lord will reveal to you the truthfulness of the gospel. Show more Show less
