Hi I'm Brianne

I love laughing so much it hurts, I'm a total nerd, and I think math is fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of 4 girls and I love watching movies and TV. I try to watch things that are clean and don't have a lot of swear words. I'm studying to be an actuary at BYU. I love to laugh and people call me a perpetual smiler. I find the most joy in life when I see others happy. I try to make people laugh, especially the ones that never do. I know that the peace and joy I have in life is all because of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but that's not why I'm a member. I'm a member because I did the little things they tell you to do as a kid such as reading your scriptures and praying daily. I didn't start doing those things until I was 17, and that's when I gained my own testimony. I asked my Father in Heaven if the things I had learned from my youth were true, and I gained a peace in my heart that I cannot deny. My story is not very unique, and I'm sure that thousands have been in that same situation, but I am unique to my Savior. He loves us each individually and He knows us better than we know ourselves.

How I live my faith

I try to be like my Savior Jesus Christ by serving others and being kind. I am so very far from perfect, but I know that my Savior loves me anyway, and He just wants me to do my best. I believe that the way we can be happiest in this life is by living the commandments of God the best we can. He loves us more than we can imagine, and He listens to our prayers. I also know that we can be with our families forever if we are sealed together in holy temples.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

All Mormons are not required to go. Young men should go, because it is their responsibility. I chose to go because the gospel brings me so much peace and I want others to be as happy as I am. I meet a lot of people in Texas who do not really understand what we as Mormons believe, but I know this message is for everyone. Who wouldn't want to spread the good news?! Show more Show less
