Hi I'm Breanna

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to Glen in my picture with me and we are happily living out our student years together. We got married about a year and a half ago in the temple of our Lord. Currently, I am in college studying to become a personal accountant, but also just to learn new things to incorporate in my lifetime that will help me be a more prepared mother, a better wife, and a well-rounded person. I enjoy learning, reading, participating in sports the main ones right now are boxing and ultimate Frisbee, spending time with my family, going to the beach, swimming, artistry, and eating great food! I love Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the LDS Church, my husband, and my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon everyday because of the eternal joy that I can feel from doing what the doctrines and principles of the LDS Church say to do. I know that they are truly of God because I have prayed and received revelation of its truth. By being a Mormon, I live according to the statutes of Heavenly Father's plan for us to return to Him again in an exalted state. I am a Mormon, not simply because I have grown up in the Church, but because I have taken on the task of trying to be like Jesus Christ everyday, progressing little by little with diligence and, ultimately, His help. I know that Joseph Smith reestablished the only fully true church on the earth today and died for Christ's sake. I know that Thomas Monson is the true prophet of God on earth today, and that when he has gone the way of all the earth, that another will be put in his stead for God to speak to us in these days, just like in days of old. I love Heavenly Father ad Jesus Christ I love all of the prophets of God that have helped bring to pass so much joy. The Book of Mormon is true, if one reads it with an open heart and contrite spirit, that person will know with a suety that it is and will find peace therein I testify of that promise, I know it to be true.

How I live my faith

I love to help others, especially when it is with people I know, it makes it more fun. I have three women I visit every month to be a help and give them a gospel-related message that pertains to their individual situations. I enjoy this calling because it lets me get to know the other women in my ward better and to uplift both the visited and visitor. On Sundays, I help in the nursery with a few other women, to teach and entertain the little ones while their parents go to other meetings held in the church. They are so amazing and it is so fun to see them participate in lessons and singing time, their favorite activity. My other calling is being a member of the activities committee for the women of our ward. Currently, I'm head of a monthly activity in which I prepare several conversation starting questions for a recent talk from one of the apostles, prophets, or other members of the Church that spoke in General Conference. We sit together and talk about how we can better ourselves by incorporating different things into our lives and relating the stories to ourselves. I love my callings! The LDS Church has so many ways to help others and make everyone happier. Although this isn't all that the Church does, it's a major part of being a member and becoming like Christ.  

What is the Relief Society?

Breanna
The Relief Society is the longest living women's organization in the United States' history. In every ward today, there is a relief society. On Sunday, we meet for an hour together and have a lesson to enrich and enlighten the women of our ward. This society of women in a ward brings them together as one and lets them become friends and closer to Heavenly Father as a group. As I mentioned before, there's visiting teaching, where women are assigned to other women to go out and teach them on their own time and help them with whatever they need. This helps to make sure that everyone has a duty in the church and for the weight to be distributed on everyone's shoulders to do their part and make sure that everyone is having their needs met. The Relief Society is a wonderful organization built on charity and continues today in that same sphere. Show more Show less

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Breanna
Modesty has so much to do with chastity. Take modesty out of the world completely and you will find that chastity will soon follow it out the door. Without each other, the "system" does not work. Take out chastity and modesty will go soon after as well they have to be performed together in order for the true meaning of both to exist. Modesty is not only meant for clothing in my thinking, it reaches to thoughts and actions too and the same goes for chastity, it isn't just abstinence until marriage, it's a way of living life that keeps you on the path of righteousness both outwardly and inwardly. Living by both of these laws together will ensure that each of these commandments get easier to live out because they are linked so tightly together. This is one of the many ways in which children can learn, through the example and teaching proper principles of both modesty and chastity. It will become easier for them to do both as they live them both. Teaching children is not easy, but showing them the right things to do by living righteously yourself has an amazing effect on them, even if it doesn't seem like it at first.   Show more Show less
