Hi I'm Breanne

I live in Colorado with my family. I love ballroom dance, a good sappy chickflick and oreo's with peanut butter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Colorado in a wonderful family with 5 siblings. I graduated from BYU- Idaho with my bachelors in Health Science and minored in Business and Dance. I now live in Colorado with my husband and two adorable kids. We love being in the beautiful Colorado outdoors, playing games and having fun together.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church, knowing about the scriptures and the prophets since I was a small child; for many years I lived off my parents beliefs and faith. As I got older and throughout my life I had trials that challenged my faith. Through study and perseverance I grew to really believe in the things I was taught as a child and I gained my own testimony. I still have life challenges but my faith in Jesus Christ and in the gospel helps me conquer these trials. I feel happier and more at peace in my life when I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have found through my life that it is easier to LIVE my faith than not. I strive to keep my body healthy and through following the commandments I am more able to reach this goal. I treasure my family and my future family and through gospel principles and covenants I know we will be together forever. I strive to treat others kindly and do service in the community. As I study the teachings and example of Jesus Christ I am more confident and encouraged to do these things. I have had opportunities to give lessons and talks in church and this has helped me with public speaking at school and at work. Everything positive in my life can be attributed to my faith and how I live it.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Breanne
In Malachi 3 verses 8-9 it discusses tithing. It starts by stating "Will a man rob God?...in tithes and offerings." We believe that the law of tithing is to sacrifice something of worth to the church. The Lord has given us so much in our lives and in turn we are asked to make this small contribution to aide the church in the buiding up of the kingdom of Heaven on the earth. In verse 10 it says, "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house..." We have no paid clergy or teachers in the church, all the work done by members of the church is done through service. The money collected through tithing is used as "meat" to the Lord becuase it is used to nourish the gospel through keeping up and building new church buildings and more importantly in building additional temples throughout the world. The law of tithing is a test of faith for we are promised that if we pay our tithing that we will recieve blessings. At the end of of verse 10 it state that the Lord will "pour you out the blessings, that there shall not be room enough to recieve it." I have recieved blessings of both physical and spiritual means through paying my tithing. The biggest blessing I have recieved is the true witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and of his teachings.
