Hi I'm Bre'an

Nomad, Designer, Photographer, but most importantly, I am a Mormon. Creative Wife & Writer, documenting the beauty of it all.

About Me

Theres much to say, and I wonder if I can do it justice in these next paragraphs. My history is still growing, still changing, and that is how I like it. My earliest years were spent in the hazy concrete menageries of Sacramento's outskirts, being homeschooled by my free spirited mother. It was when I was still a young girl, my family then made our trek east, driving cross country where we traded the burning black tops and swimming pools for New York's homegrown apple trees, gravel driveways, and warm wood burning stoves. I was young, hungry, and restless, which led me to move all around the country, harvesting beautiful experiences and continually discovering myself along the way, yet several states and few years later, I ended up finding home again in my beloved New York. It was there in the quite lush green of the fields and the gentle breezes on top of the ridge where I saw my life come together, where prayer & heavenly direction led me to take paths that by myself I wouldn't have gone, and in the midst of it all, I started my favorite chapter of life with my husband Brian. When it comes down to it, I am an advocate for simplicity, romance, honesty, & virtuous artistry. I am just a woman, passionately putting it all out there, documenting the journey of becoming through visual storytelling, whether through my work or in my home. I now reside in St. George, Utah with my husband Brian, where we travel, laugh, and continuously explore this grand life that we're apart of.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so happy to be able to say that I am a Mormon. I cannot even begin to express the love that I feel towards people, but mostly the love I feel towards Christ. Being a Mormon has really helped me to overcome my trials, it has showed me that the Lord is with me every step of the way. To have the support system I have, to have the friends that I do, to see how close my family is, I can truly say things would be completely different if I was not a Mormon. It has made me open my eyes to how blessed I am, and how much the Savior loves me.

How I live my faith

Being an example is one of the most important things to me. They say actions speak louder than words and I believe that 100 percent, even though I am a sucker for good grammar and creative writing. I try to do my best to be a great example to the people I surround myself with. I think just being positive is such a big thing, especially in today's world where negativity is just this constant factor. There's so much joy and beauty in the world, and I think we just need to have the attitude of gratitude to see that. My Savior has given me everything, and having that perspective it is so easy to find happiness. I love people, and I love their potential, along with making connections. Over these next 18 months, I am already overwhelmed with joy when I think of all the people I will get to meet, know, and get the chance to serve, whether they are members of my faith or not. We are placed on this earth not to make life more difficult for others, but to help them grow, succeed, and achieve all that is good. Serving a mission was never something I thought I would do, but when I had the realization I could influence peoples lives at such a divine level, that I could be an instrument in God's hands to bring happiness, hope, and truth, the kind that makes you strive to be better and feel an abundance of goodness, I had to serve a mission. I would be selfish if I passed up an opportunity to not share what I know to be true, that God loves us, individually, and that our lives have a perfect plan because we are His children, and it was created by our Heavenly Father. Praying daily, taking all things to Him, reading my scriptures, and listening to modern day prophets and apostles helps me remain faithful, and gives me direction, insight, and comfort during confusing, and difficult times in my life, as well as the most joyous times too. Keeping close to God makes life enjoyable in leaps and bounds.

Are Mormons Christians?

Of course we are Christians, take our name for example, "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", it clearly states that we are centered around Christ. Everything we do is to testify and show love, thanks, and give complete worship to Him. I know that without Jesus Christ I would not be able to repent, I know that He died on the cross so that I could repent and some day return to live with Him. I love Jesus Christ. He is not only my Savior, but He is my friend, and my older brother. Show more Show less
