Hi I'm Brittany

I am a broadcast journalism student at Arizona State University. I love to sing and dance. I just got married. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a junior at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. I love it! I chose this major because I love writing and telling stories and meeting new people. I figured if I can make that a job, then I couldn't have asked for anything better! I currently am working at the biggest newspaper in Arizona as part of the breaking news team. It's exciting because everyday is completely different than the previous day. I love humanitarian work. Last summer, I traveled to Mozambique in southeast Africa. I was part of a team that helped teach communities in villages how to read and write in English, how to sew and how to be self-reliant. We also worked in children's orphanages. We all grew so attached to the children and families there. It was so hard to leave after seeing so much progress! It was easily the most life-changing experience I've ever had. I would love to go back and visit again someday. I play the violin, viola and piano. Music has always been such an important part of my life. I believe it blesses lives like nothing else can. I also love to sing and dance. Even at the same time! This past summer, I married the love of my life in the Mesa, Arizona Temple for time and all eternity. I love him so much and find so much joy in the knowledge that we will be together forever. He is the most amazing man!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was already a Latter Day Saint family. I guess you can say I have always had a strong testimony, even from a young age. I have never doubted the church because I know the feeling and confirmation I get every time I read the scriptures, or go to the temple, or take the sacrament. I get that same sweet peaceful feeling when I think of the Savior or hear a beautiful hymn or look at a beautiful scene from God's creation. All these things remind me that I am a daughter of Heavenly Father who loves me. This knowledge beings more confidence and happiness than any other knowledge. I love all the truths this gospel gives me. I know that I can be with my husband and my family forever. This is such a joyful concept! I love knowing that the Savior of the world loves us so much that he gave His own life for us. Knowing all these things keeps me steady in a world where sureness is faltering. I wish everyone could have the same knowledge and feelings that I do from knowing the teachings of Christ in these latter days.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by telling others who are not of my faith about how I feel. I am the only Mormon at work. I answer a lot of questions and tell my co-workers and friends about the teachings of the church. I read my scriptures every night with my husband and on my own. I love to go and serve in the temple, the house of the Lord. I attend church each Sunday and take the sacrament to remember my covenants with the Lord. My husband just got called to be the new young men president. He spends a lot of time working with the youth. I love seeing how good of an example he is. Together, we serve as dance teachers for the 16 to 18 year old youth for the dance festival coming up in our area. I love to dance and have enjoyed watching my husband (who is a pure thoroughbred athlete) learn to dance with me. He is so sweet to me. I also go visiting teachers to other women. This process allows other women to serve others and fill in for Christ. Serving brings us all together-young and old.
