Hi I'm Brittney

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a dancer for the past 13 years and have performed, competed and coached all styles, but my specialty is in Ballroom Dancing. I attended BYU and was a member of the Ballroom Dance Company for five years and was blessed to tour the world, visiting places like the South Pacific, Ukraine, England, Western Europe and Hong Kong/China. I graduated in Marriage/Family/Human Development with a minor in Ballroom Dancing and have been working in the dance industry as an instructor/director/administrative professional ever since. I was also very fortunate to meet me husband when we were only twelve years old, on a youth ballroom dance team that we grew up dancing together on. After he served a two year mission to Ecuador, we were on a dance tour in Europe where we started dating and fell in love. We have been happily married for the past four years and are looking forward to starting a family soon. A lot of my hobbies outside of the dance world are boating, reading (I am a complete bookworm!), working out, spending time with my friends/family and writing fiction, as it is my secret dream to publish a book one day.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were members of the LDS Church and so I was born into the LDS faith. Even though I grew up living the LDS faith and following the example of my parents, I had a few personal experiences that gave me a knoweldge of the truth of this Gospel for myself. I had never doubted the truthfulness of the Gospel and had always felt a strong feeling in my heart and mind that these teachings were from God. I finished reading the Book of Mormon all by myself as a Senior in high school and gained a testimony of what was written inside, which also motivated me to attend an LDS-sponsored institution for college, which was the right decision for me. I am not saying that this is the right decision for everyone, but there I was able to improve my circle of friends and be surrounded by young people like myself who were making good, uplifting choices and helping me be a better person every day. I also had many experiences on my dance tours where I gained such a testimony of what a difference the Gospel makes in my life and how grateful I am to have its principles to live by. Even though I still deal with trials, disappointments and failures, the Gospel gives me an eternal perspective on life that helps me cope with the challenges of everyday life with a more positive attitude, knowing that I am not alone.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I have the calling to be a Primary Teacher to the 10-11 year olds group. A primary teacher is simply someone who teaches scriptural teachings and gospel doctrine to young children. I love teaching the youth, as this age group is one of the most fun to work with. I also do visit teaching to other ladies in my ward every month. It helps me get to know them and build lasting friendships, while sharing Gospel principles and providing service to them when needed. I love this aspect of the Gospel, such a feeling of united sisterhood! I also think that by daily living my standards, (I'm not always perfect, but constantly striving to improve,) I can be a positive example to all I come in contact with.
