Hi I'm Brittany

I love children. I love learning. I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of eight children in my family. I have been babysitting since the time I was ten, and I love being around and taking care of children. I also love school and learning, but I don't know exactly what I want to do yet, or how I want to get there. I've thought about doing everything from teaching, to cake decorating, to floral designing, although I have almost decided to pursue a developmental specialist career, but we will just have to see how everything works out. I love reading about how things work in this wonderful world around us, isn't it amazing?! I will be taking a break from pursuing my education for the next 18 months so I can serve a mission, I will be leaving in November 2011 to serve in Panama.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life, and I can't really tell you the one time in my life that it all came together and I knew that this church is true. But everyday as I live the teachings of the gospel and work hard to do what is right I grow in my testimony and in my desire to share the message of the gospel with others around me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints makes me happy and I am excited to share that with others and bring the same happiness that I feel into their lives. Choosing to go on a mission was not an easy decision, but I know that I will be blessed and that My Heavenly Father will guide and protect me.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is a lot of spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical preparation involved in serving as a missionary. I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity that I have to go serve the people in Panama. I also teach children 3and 4 years old at church each week, I love working and serving in this capacity.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, Mormons are definitely Christians! The official name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. In fact during the course of the Book of Mormon, Christ appears and ministers to the people of The Book of Mormon. We just like other Christian denominations believe that Christ is our Savior. I personally know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. He lived and died for me, and the atonement makes it possible for me to be forgiven and cleansed from my sins. Show more Show less
