Hi I'm Brittany.

I live for three things: Family, fashion, and frozen yogurt. I love to make others laugh. I'm a kid at heart. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 25 years old and have had so many dreams and aspirations in life that I found it overwhelming to limit myself to one of them. So, instead of settling into one area, I've done a lot of everything - teaching, yoga instructing, cosmetology...the list goes on. I'm currently a full-time nanny and, most of the time, I love what I do. It is great preparation for motherhood, I get to play with kids all day, and I've come to a better understanding of how service truly helps a person love to their full capacity. I'm the second oldest of five kids and my family is my everything. There is nothing I would not do for them, and I know they feel the same about me. My home and family life has always been one that I've loved being a part of. Granted, we have had our trials and disagreements, but at the end of the day, we know we are "stuck" with each other and it always turns out for the best. I'm so grateful for the knowledge I have of the gospel of Jesus Christ and my ability to be with my family forever, even after this life. If not for this certainty, heaven would not be worth aspiring to for me. I look forward to the day I become a wife and mother. Picking up dirty socks, mopping mud from my laundry room floors, and wiping the peanut butter off of my children's faces are a few of the little things I'll come to appreciate about motherhood. Those things are all outward signs of an inward desire to love and serve my future family. I want to be their everything; for they will be mine.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of this church offers the greatest blessings than I could ever ask for. I've come to know through trial and experience that life without the gospel (or living it to its fullness) does not bring true joy. The Lord truly fulfills his promises and I'm so grateful for the small (and big) things He helps me with on a daily basis. Why am I a Mormon? Because it makes sense. Without my religion or knowledge of the truth, I would not be able to experience the joy, peace, and self-worth that I do today. I have frequently pondered, "What's in it for me?" but I have always known the answer - True and everlasting JOY! There are many things in this life that bring temporary pleasure or relief from the world around me. However, Christ, the gospel, and my testimony are the only things that have remained firm and immoveable -the only things that bring constant peace, despite the turmoil around me. The breaths I take each day, and the sun rising each morning are not signs of science - they are simple daily blessings and assurances that the Lord cares. I am a Mormon, because I was born into the gospel by parents who are members. But I'm also a Mormon, because I've come to know for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is where I belong. It's where I feel closest to my Savior and I know it's the only way I can one day stand in His presence. That, to me, makes any trial and hardship in this life worth it.

How I live my faith

I am a member of YSA (Young Single Adult) ward and love to participate in the activities they provide to young members of the church. While the LDS church is family-oriented, it's singles program allows me, and others like me, the opportunity to meet people and eventually find someone who shares my standards so we can raise our children, together, in the gospel. Living my faith is not just a habit -it's a lifestyle. Daily worship through prayer and scripture study help me remain close to my Savior and strong in His gospel.
