Hi I'm Bridgette

I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a fourth generation born and breed in Arizona. I love this land and feel blessed to enjoy freedom. I was raised in a small town by loving parents who taught me about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I feel like I had a charmed childhood filled with laughter, love, and the simple joys in life. I met the most amazing man at church and convinced him to marry me. He has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. We have been given 4 choice spirits to raise and they have taught us a lot about love, patience, acceptance, and focusing on the important things in life. I feel my role as a wife and mother is the most wonderful occupation I could ever have.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active Latter-day Saint family. We attended church each week and my father held the Priesthood and gave me father's blessings as well as baptized me when I was eight. I don't remember the exact moment I knew the church was true. For me, it was a hundred little things that added belief to my faith. It was attending church, reading the scriptures, feeling the spirit and praying. There is a time when each person must decide what kind of life they will live, and for me, I tried to think of why I shouldn't be a Mormon. When I looked at a life without the church it felt sad. I knew I would miss it. I had attended different churches with friends and although they were nice, I also felt that something was missing. Being a member of the church isn't just a thing we do on Sundays, it is a way of life that affects every decision the whole week through. It is a compass that guides me in the things I watch, read, say, and do. I know it is Heavenly Father guiding me. I know He requires a lot from His disciples, those who try to follow his teachings. Our church requires a lot of it's members because things worth having require much.

How I live my faith

I'm still working on the basics: faith, hope and charity. Once I have these perfected I'll move on to the bigger things. I try to be a nice person and sometimes in this world that can be difficult. I try to follow Jesus Christ's example and teachings. Currently, I serve the young children in our church. Each week I teach them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and making important decisions in their life. I also like to participate in activities that help families and the community. Opportunities for service are all around us, and when I serve I feel like I am following Jesus.
