Hi I'm Brittany

I'm a convert.

About Me

I'm a master's student studying music.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't hear the message of the gospel until I was in my early twenties. Yet when I found it, I couldn't believe how many of my questions it answered about life, the meaning of it all, and exactly how I fit into the big picture. I've always been a seeker of truth and knowledge, and those are beautiful things that this gospel and this church promotes.

How I live my faith

I conduct hymns during the the main meeting at our ward.  One of the things I love best about our members is our willingness to serve those in need, morn with those who morn, and comfort those who need comforting. We have a program set up in the church called visiting teaching in which women in pairs administers to other women in the church. Each month, they visit them in their homes and check on their well-being, ask how they're doing, and take them a spiritual message. Through service like this, I have better understood why we call the women of the church, "sisters." The bonds that form from service are truly ones of Christ-like love.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Brittany
As I was investigating the church before I joined in, this was a question my friends asked me a lot. To which I was able to readily answer, "Yes. The Bible is the holy word of God which Mormons love and revere." The Bible is like letters from a kind, loving father, given us to help us safely home to him. Why would those letters stop, especially in a time like the last days like now when we need the help more than ever to navigate life's twists, turns, trials, and temptations? I know the Bible is true, holy scripture as sure as I know that Jesus lives and is the Christ. Yet I also know that it's not the only help we need, and I'm glad that Heavenly Father has sent us additional help in the form of other scriptures. We have the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, the Pearl of Great Price, and modern revelation from our modern prophets which are also loving messages from our Heavenly Father. Together with the Bible, we have a wonderful collection of cannon which comfort, bless, build, education, and empower us. Show more Show less
