Hi I'm Brianna

I'm a wife, an intern, and almost the mother of one! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life has a way of changing, sometimes quickly! This last year I married to my best friend Dylan and we’re expecting a little boy to join our family this April. I am basically done with college, just one online class and my internship left and I am currently doing both. I am a Marriage and Family Studies major as I have a passion for families and helping to strengthen families in society. My internship is with a finance program, and I hope to help families through this as well! I grew up in a tiny town in Washington and miss the green and the smell of pine. I have three wonderful brothers, two of whom are currently serving missions for the church in Arizona and Chile where they are serving the people and teaching about Jesus Christ. I love being outside (especially by water- I love the ocean). I am almost always up for going on a walk, hike, or bike ride!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have come to feel and know that it is God's restored church upon the Earth. This life can get really hard. We all have trials and hard things that we have to go through. But I also know that God wants us to be happy and wants us to return to Him someday. Through my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ I have been able to find joy in the journey and have been lifted up by my Savior who loves me. I know that I have been very blessed by trying to do what God would have me do. I feel peace that comes from living the standards. I know that God is real. He knows and loves me as his daughter as he knows all of his children. I feel of Gods love for me each day through my family's love, church leaders, His spirit, and as I pray. God answers prayers. Over and over again as I have gone to Him in earnest prayer I have been comforted by the Spirit and have been aided with guidance.I believe that this church is the same church that Christ set up, that it has been restored by the prophet Joseph Smith and is led today by God through a latter-day prophet. I love to read from the Bible and The Book Mormon because they contain God's words through his prophets.

How I live my faith

Living my faith comes down to the simple daily things. I try to put Jesus Christ at the center of my life by reading the scriptures and writing down insights every day, praying morning and night on my knees and trying to keep a prayer in my heart during the day. I try to serve others and show kindness the way my Savior did. Some days I am better than others, and I appreciate the atonement in my life, so that I can repent and start anew. Prayer is a gift. I try to follow the teachings of the prophets in the scriptures as well as modern prophets. This has blessed my life immensely and I know it is because I have looked to the Lord daily in prayer and in His word that I have been able to taste of the joy that the gospel of Jesus Christ can bring to one's life.
