Hi I'm Brandi

I'm a stay at home mother of two. I live with an anxiety disorder. I am a daughter of God, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two adorable children and wife to my eternal companion. I have given up school and work at this time, to see my children grow. We live in a small apartment going from paycheck to paycheck, but I would not have it any other way. I have my struggles with anxiety and depression. I find joy in my artistic abilities for drawing, painting, and decorating.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member all my life. As a child, I loved church and the warm feeling I felt within my home. Many of my friends did not have that warmth in their homes. I continued having these feelings until my Junior year in High school. My faith was shaken when anxiety took a hold of me. I felt so alone. This experience caused me to truly seek out what my Heavenly Father had in store for me. I had to turn to Him in prayer and search the scriptures to feel that conviction again. One night as I was crying and praying, I felt a feeling of calm and warmth. I knew that Heavenly Father was surrounding me with his love. Our Father in Heaven knows us personally. He knows our needs, our weakness and our strengths. He is mindful of us and embraces us when we let him. I get comfort in the knowledge that the Savior Jesus Christ atoned for me making it possible to return to my Heavenly Father. His atonement is a powerful gift that has strengthened my life. I'm glad to know that my family can be together Eternally and that this life is a test. I feel so blessed to have the guidance of the Gospel in the world that we live in today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by mirroring the way Christ lived. I try to put myself in others shoes. Instead of making a judgment, I try to give the benefit of the doubt. I love serving others and sharing a cheery hello. It doesn't matter who I come in contact with (race, color, size, religion, disabilities, etc.) I love people. Each of us is a child of God and it is in our nature to be loved by others. I currently serve young children in my ward, and as I serve them every week, I can see the light of Christ in their eyes. That's why I live my faith. I live it because I want everyone to feel the same love that I do. The pure love of Christ.
