Hi I'm Brittany

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very busy wife and the mother of a spectacularly active two-year-old. I am a full-time college student and will soon do my student teaching with hopes of becomming an English teacher. I also work to support my family while my husband is unemployed. In the free time I have, I love making things. I make music with my daughter as we play the piano together, I sew and crochet gifts for friends and family, and cook and bake for dinner with family on Sunday afternoons.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and while I never wavered in Church activity, I made some choices that were not in harmony with our Heavenly Father's teachings. I remember those times with heartache and smiles. I remember the emptiness I felt from not being worthy to feel the Spirit and the pain that I felt because of the effects of my sins. I also remember with great fondness the day I was able to look up and truly feel that I had been forgiven. I had Priesthood blessings and lots of support as I dealt with the difficult consequences my decisions had led me to, and very literally felt heavy burdens lifted off my shoulders as I went through the course of action I knew my Heavenly Father wanted me to do. And now as I deal with new difficulties in my life and am not able to be with my family much, I remember the comfort and blessings that the gospel has given me throughout my life and feel comfort from my Heavenly Father as I summit the difficulties I am faced with. This gospel and the teachings within it bring me peace and understanding and a closeness with my Savior that I would never have had without His gospel.

How I live my faith

I used to teach young girls in my ward, and was very disappointed when I was released from that calling and asked to lead music in our Women's organization, the Relief Society. I have come to truly appreciate this calling, though. I find that I am most easily touched by music, and know that many others are the same way. By selecting the music and being the one to stand and lead the singing in our meetings, I see that sometimes I am able to touch hearts that may not have been otherwise touched. I love music and using the Spirit to select hymns that reflect lessons and teachings in our meetings has become a huge blessing to me.
