Hi I'm Britta

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a junior in college, and I am an Exercise Science major. I want to be occupational therapist who works with special needs children. I have a younger brother with special needs and I want to help other kids like him to develop their abilities as far as they are able. I want to find a way to give service and to help other people. I want to follow Christ's example and be the best me I can be and to help others to become their best selves. I love being a Mormon because it gives me an anchor, a foundation that I can never lose, no matter how crazy and confusing life gets. Christ is my elder brother, He loves me, more than I can comprehend. He helps me to get through each day as I fall and struggle to get back up. He is always there!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the faith that I have developed from years of searching the scriptures, praying and fasting. I grew up in the church, but like most people, I have had my doubts and questions. I haven't had any huge revelations, but I see the affirmation of my faith in little things everyday. My testimony has grown through intense pondering and heartfelt prayer and I can finally say without a doubt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. The Lord lives and He knows each of us individually. Our Father in Heaven loves each of us and cherishes us as His children. The Father and the Son visited Joseph Smith in the Sacred Grove. Through him they reestablished the true church on the earth. Today, His prophet Thomas S. Monson leads and guides us. Christ atoned for our sins, each and every one. I really don't understand the Atonement but I feel its truth and its effects in my life. I'm very grateful that I am able to repent and have the heavy burden of sin removed from me as I change and become better. I am grateful for my family and I am so grateful for the Plan of Salvation that allows my family to live together for ever. Because of this knowledge, I know that death is not the end and I am able to go forward in faith.

How I live my faith

I've been called as a missionary to Ribeirao Preto Brazil. I am super excited for this opportunity to share my testimony and to help others to find Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I have come to know our Father in Heaven through private prayer and service. As I pray and receive answers through impressions and feelings, I am able to assist in His work. At other times, I have been comforted at the times when I needed it most by a very real presence. I feel His love as I serve others and I can feel His love for them. Show more Show less
