Hi I'm Brendi

I've grown up in Arizona. I love music, especially the piano. I'm going to college for a degree in Sonography. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play the piano and sing. I also play the organ and the flute. I am the oldest of five children. My parents are my best friends, at least until I find myself a man. I very much enjoy reading fictional stories and playing badminton. I love to learn new things and am currently attending college to become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer which is basically the person who does ultrasounds for babies but I'm being trained for vascular and abdominal illness too. I love the rain. It is one of the only things in life beautiful enough to make me want to go running so I can feel it on my face. I don't much care for the sun because no matter what I do, I get burned. I love green grass and trees. My happiest place on earth is not Disneyland. I prefer caves. I enjoy hiking both under and above ground. I am a bargain shopper and I'm pretty good at finding the best deals. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel makes perfect sense. There has to be something more than this earth. Those who believe in heaven and hell, who believe they have a soul, must know that there is more than this earth. Someone has to rule over heaven, why not the father of our souls, Heavenly Father who wants us to succeed in this life and return to live with him again? Someone has to rule over hell, why not the father of lies who "seeks for all men to be miserable like unto himself"? God has laid everything out the way he wants it and everything falls exactly where it should. One of the most common questions asked of the church today is "How can there be modern day prophets?" My answer is "Why wouldn't there be modern day prophets?" Does anyone honestly think that at a time when the world is so perverted and full of wickedness that our own Father in Heaven would abandon us? I also take great comfort knowing that my family is sealed together for eternity. The last thing I want to say is that prayer is a glorious thing. When you call on the Father in the name of Jesus Christ and you make it personal and really talk as though God is listening, he will answer. Too many times have I received answers to my prayers and had the Holy Ghost with me as a companion and comforter. It is real. Prayer works. Heavenly Father loves and knows every single one of his children and wants us to succeed. He will be there for you. I KNOW these things to be true. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a mission for the church and could not be more excited to do so! I will have the opportunity to invite less active members and non members to come unto Christ and learn of his teachings. Also I am a visiting teacher which means me and one other sister in the ward are partnered as companions. We go together once a month to visit two or three sisters in the ward to share an encouraging message with them and offer our help should they need anything at all. It's a lot of fun.
