Hi I'm Brittany
I am 22 years old, serving as a missionary in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I teach people who speak Spanish about the Gospel and help them strengthen their faith in Christ. I love being a missionary!! Before my mission I went to college and studied Special Education. I plan on continuing that after my mission. I love spending time with my family and friends, reading good books, and eating chocolate!
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ, and I know that this is His true church on the earth. I was raised in the church, and have seen it bless my family for my whole life. I have prayed and studied to know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, and the Book of Mormon is true, and I know that they are true. The Gospel has blessed my life so much! I know that Heavenly Father knows me personally, and that He is aware of me and the challenges and concerns I face. I love praying to Him, and I know He hears me. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for my sins, so that I can repent and return to live with Him and my family again. I am so thankful for all He has done for me!
How has The Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?
When I read the Book of Mormon I feel the love of Jesus Christ. In the Book of Mormon lots of prophets teach about Jesus Christ and the sacrifice that He made for us and how we can return to live with Him again. My faith in Christ is strengthened as I learn more about Him. I know that as we follow the teachings we find in the scriptures, we have peace and happiness in our lives.
How I live my faith
I try to keep the commandments the best I can. I try to be a good person and help others. I make a lot of mistakes, but I do my best to repent of them. I try to live the way Jesus would live. While I was in High School I was a volunteer at activities that the church provided for people with disabilities. We helped them learn about Jesus and participate in fun activities. I loved it!! I feel like this helped me appreciate people who are different, and experience some of the love that Heavenly Father feels for each of His children. I know that as we help others we become better people and find so much joy.
