Hi I'm Breenie

I am a writer known as "The Rescuing Mormon." I am from Louisiana. I love to run. I am a Mormon who loves to do missionary work.

About Me

My favorite things to do include running and writing. I have created a blog that I hope to reach out to many across the countries titled as "Breenie-The Rescuing Mormon." I run races such as marathons or even shorter. I also enjoy painting and spending my time around my local artist friends and supporting them in their shows and exhibits. I am currently enrolled in the Pathway's program through BYU-Idaho. I am seeking an interest through the Journalism field.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was 15 years old, and I knew when I was given the book and prayed in time; that the answer came to me creating warms feelings and thoughts that this was the true church that I needed to be at. I know the gospel is true, and I believe that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and that he had a vision by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I believe in revelation. I know our Prophet today is guided by God to lead us to a celestial life where we can obtain all the blessings we desire.

How I live my faith

I am a local missionary for my church who helps the full-time missionaries. That means I go out and teach people in my city. I also am the local Book of Mormon Instructor for my church. I hold and lead discussions once a week to people who want to know more about the Book of Mormon.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Not every member of the church is required to serve a full-time mission. I have not. I am a ward missionary. That is someone who goes out with the full-time missionaries serving in their local area and helps meet and teach others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is my calling that was given to me through my bishop who felt inspiration from the Lord to give me this "mission." We are all called to different missions in life and each person's mission will be unique in how they serve and teach indifferent ways. I love sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in my local city to people around me because I know how to relate to many of them. Show more Show less
