Hi I'm Brittany

I grew up in Portland, OR. I'm a flight attendant, wife, mother.... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a flight attendant for a major airline for almost a decade. I have two kids. One of them is disabled. My husband and I work really hard to help her learn and grow, navigate life challenges, and find happiness in this world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon by the most loving parents. I had a testimony of the gospel very early in life, but I tested my own faith as a teen. I found early on in adulthood that living a good life was much easier. I am much happier in life knowing that I have standards that I live by. Having high standards helps protect the sanctity of my marriage. Having high standards helps me know what my decisions will be in sticky situations before I end up in them. As a flight attendant its not uncommon for me to run into people who have no faith in their lives. They have no self respect, they have no standards, they have no love for their fellow man. It's sad for me to see people who have no direction, and who are clearly miserable. My life is easy because I know what the purpose of my life is.

How I live my faith

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the people that I go to church with. No one has ulterior motives. No one looks down at you. I feel respected by my friends at church. I feel loved by my ward members. Just this week we have received two plates of cookies and one loaf of sweet bread from church members that are also my neighbors and friends. I teach the young women at church. The girls 12-17yrs old spend about 45 minutes with me twice a month. I teach about gospel principles, life lessons and why the gospel is important to me.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

The temple would not reach someone the way it is supposed to if they were not prepared for it. We make covenants with the Lord about how we will live our lives. If you aren't spiritually prepared for these covenants, than you might not take them seriously, and it would take away from those who are there for the right reasons. For me, going to the temple always puts life into perspective. It reminds me that so many little things don't matter. What does matter is that I am a good person, I make good decisions and I put the Lord and my family first in my life. The rest will fall into place. Eternal perspective is the best problem solver EVER! Show more Show less
