Hi I'm Bridget

I grew up by the ocean. I'm a sister and a daughter. I love sushi and donuts and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm going to college soon and I am majoring in Art. I grew up in a town where there weren't a lot of mormons so it was really important for me to be firm in what i believed in so that I could be an example for people around me. And although I think it would have been easier to keep my standards had I lived in a place where there were more people like me I'm grateful for the opportunities that have arisen from meeting the people I have. Its made me realize that there are good people in the world who don't share my faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. Both my parents where already members when I was born. But they never forced me to do things that I didn't want to do. For a while I went to church because I had never known anything else. But after a while I really started thinking about what the church taught and why I followed the guidelines they gave me. Everything in the gospel makes sence. Its incredibly logical. As an example we have something called the Word of Wisdom that is basically a guidline for staying healthy. Mormons don't smoke because its not healthy. We don't drink alcohol because its not healthy. I like to know that there is a purpose to my life,

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday and at church I lead the music during the first hour and during the third hour I teach the women. I try and not be a Sunday worshiper only. I want to have my religion be a part of my every day life. And in order to do that I not only go through the motions of saying my prayers and reading scriptures but also by trying to be the best person I can be.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The word of wisdom is basically guidelines to help you keep your body healthy. It includes things like: eat meat sparingly and try to eat lots of fruits and veggies and grains. Really it tells you what any health or diet expert would if you wanted to get healthy. Show more Show less
