Hi I'm Brianna

I'm a new mother, I enjoy trying new foods, I'm learning Italian and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After a couple of years of marriage and welcoming our baby daughter, my husband was accepted into graduate school and that meant a big move for our small family...to Italy. Packing up our lives and leaving family was a hard thing to do but we know it will be worth it in the end. We have found our extended "family" in our new ward here in Italy and love that no matter where you are in the world, you can rely on the church to be there, constant and true.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior, our Redeemer and it's through His sacrifice that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again. I have prayed to know the church is true and have received a confirmation for myself that it is. Throughout my life I have relied on the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to help direct, uplift, and inspire my life for the better. I am a Mormon because I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true.

How I live my faith

The little children of this world are of such importance, of such great worth. We can learn so much from their examples and I have loved my experiences of teaching some of these wonderful children. Each week at church, my husband and I would team teach a great group of children from 6-8 years of age. We wanted so much to teach them the truths of the Gospel through scriptures and lessons.These children taught me as well. Children have such angelic characteristics and my love for them grew as we taught them and as I saw just a glimpse of what our Father in Heaven feels for us. Today I sing the church songs I once sang with the beautiful 6-8 year old children to my baby. And I am reminded why children are so important to our Heavenly Father. I also had the opportunity to teach the 15-16 year olds for Sunday school. I felt that as each week began, I needed to do my best to learn as much as I could about what I was to teach so that these young adults would understand the Gospel more. But again, these young adults ended up teaching me. Through their kindness and their faith, I learned from them each Sunday as I taught them the words of the scriptures. By increasing my knowledge throughout my life about the Gospel, I am able to better understand my purpose in life.
