Hi I'm Brittany Perkins

I'm a Mormon, or Latter-Day Saint. I love to play with my family, scrapbook and bake yummy treats.

About Me

I'm very lucky to live across the street from my parents on the street where I grew up. My oldest daughter started Kindergarten at my old school and we welcomed our third child this year. I get to spend a lot of time with my family: 3 out of 5 of my sisters and my in-laws live in the area and they are my best friends. I work one or two days a week as an office manager for a rock quarry. I love listening to dance music, scrapbooking my family photos and running errands.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were raised in the LDS church so I've been going to church forever. I've always believed the gospel was true and have always been an active participant in church meetings. As a young teenager, I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to strengthen my testimony of its truthfulness. I was lucky to have frequent opportunities to feel the Holy Ghost witness to me that the doctrines of the gospel are true. As an adult who has been blessed for 32 years because of the good choices my family has made trying to follow the doctrines of Christ, I cannot doubt that the church is true. I have been spared so much heartache and so many trials because I've always known the commandments and tried to follow what the prophet asks us to do. I'm far from perfect and know I have a long way to go as a true disciple of Christ, but I know that following Christ's teachings will make me happier than anything else.

How I live my faith

I try to recognize all the opportunities I have to teach my children the gospel through our everyday life experiences. The gospel of Christ is not reserved for Sundays so we try to follow the commandments everyday. I try to be kind, patient and forgiving. I try to show love and charity. I pray everyday and thank Heavenly Father for my many blessings.
