Hi I'm Brianna Young!

I'm a cowgirl from Nebraska. I love my family, exercising, nature, and working on the ranch. I love this church. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up on a ranch in Nebraska. I love working on the ranch and just being outside in general. I also love playing the piano and taking care of my body, exercising is something I enjoy a lot. I have a younger sister that is absolutely the greatest. I love my family, they are my best friends! I have completed three semesters at Brigham Young University-Idaho, majoring in Animal Science. February 2014 I leave for a mission to Orlando, Florida. I have prayed and know that it is His will and I am so excited for what the Lord has in store for me!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church. My mom is a convert and my parents are both active members. I am so thankful for the foundation they've given me for my life. I got into the habit when I was younger of reading the scriptures and that's really helped me grow spiritually and gain a testimony. I never had one terrific moment when I knew the church was true, I've grown into this knowledge slowly and my testimony gets deeper with every good choice I make. I love this gospel. I know that my Savior Jesus Christ willingly sacrificed His life and has taken it up again for me. Through this, I can repent and will eventually return home to live with my Heavenly Father. Nothing gives me greater peace. I know I am a child of God and that He loves each of His children perfectly, He wants all to return to Him! I want to live eternally with Him and all of my current family. I can do this through keeping the temple covenants I have made with my current family and will make with my future family. Nothing gives me greater joy!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living the standards given in this gospel. My standards protect me, lead me closer to my Father in Heaven, and help me to become the person He would have me be. I study my scriptures every day, I can't go without this guidance and instruction. I depend on daily prayer to thank my Heavenly Father for all He has given me and ask for needed blessings. I attend the temple whenever possible and love doing family history work. Daily righteous acts make me happy, help me keep my baptismal and temple covenants, and ensure that I will be worthy of a temple marriage someday. I also live my faith by sharing it. This gospel is a precious gift that shows me how I can live with my Heavenly Father and family for eternity after this life. It's a gift too precious not to share with others. I help others come to Christ by supporting those already in the church and sharing the gospel with those who have not yet received it. He wants all to have the blessings He offers and I hope He can use me to show others the way.
