Hi I'm Brynn

I'm a linguist. I live in Morocco. I'm a Mormon abroad.

About Me

I recently returned from serving a mission in Mesa, AZ. I graduated from college with a degree in linguistics. I love languages and speak English, Spanish, Russian, and am studying Arabic and French. I live in Morocco, a North African country where there are only about 30 Latter-day Saints. It gives me a great opportunity to live my values and learn to share them only by example.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the church of our Savior, Jesus Christ. A testimony is usually not an overnight experience, but rather a gradual change and progression in life. Every time I put into practice the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I feel that I am doing the right thing and feel closer to my Heavenly Father. And that is what keeps me learning and loving the gospel. I also had the great experience of being a missionary and sharing the gospel with others, so I saw the change it brought in their lives, which strengthened my own beliefs. The gospel answers questions they didn't think they'd ever figure out. And the gospel guides me everyday.

How I live my faith

Here in Morocco there aren't very many of us, and all of us are living away from our homes in the United States. However, we are still able to live our faith in little ways. Every morning I get up with the rest of the family and we study the scriptures in our mini seminary class. In the states teenage members would normally attend seminary before school with the other members in their high school or congregation. To help my high school age brother and sister, we all get up and make it a family class. I also live my faith by example and when given the opportunity am not afraid to share what I believe. One of the core beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints states "We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may." In a country where only 1.1% of the population is Christian, I get to live this part of my faith every day.
