Hi I'm Brittany

I study Ecology and Evolution, and am getting my Master's degree in Biology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in southern, AZ. I love outdoor activities (hiking, swimming, camping, bird watching). I love to play sports, especially basketball. I play the piano and played the clarinet. I am finishing my thesis (wish me luck!). I love ALL animals! I have always loved animals and had tons of pets growing up. It is so amazing to me that our Heavenly Father has created such wonderful things on this earth that we can enjoy. I am so excited that I get to study how He may have created this earth and the amazing creatures that live on it.

Why I am a Mormon

The church is true. There is no doubt in my mind. I have been so blessed because of the knowledge I have that can only come through the scriptures, and in particular, the Book of Mormon. I find such peace and joy knowing that there are living prophets and apostles today, just as there were in the Old and New Testaments. I have read and prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a true prophet and if the Book of Mormon was true. The answer didn't come immediately. It took alot of prayer and scripture study, but the Holy Ghost did testify to me that these teachings are true. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have a plan for each of us and they have provided a way for us to return to them.

How I live my faith

I love going to church! It is so uplifting! What is so amazing about our church is that everyone is needed. We all have different responsibilities that our Father in Heaven wants us to do. Right now, I get to plan activities for girls ages 8-11 each month. I get to teach them fun crafts, help them develop cooking skills, play fun games, learn about family history, go on hikes, and so much more. It is such a blessing that we all have each other to serve, love, and just be friends with. I feel such peace and happiness when I read the scriptures everyday.
