Hi I'm Brittany
I love children. I love learning. I love being a Mormon.
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.
