Hi I'm Bree

I'm a mom of two girls. I'm a lover of books. I enjoy being outside. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm a mom of two spirited little girls. I love to read, exercise, and TALK! Together as a family we love to cook, have loud dance parties, play hide-and-seek, and go for walks outside.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to be born in a strong LDS family. All my life I attended church and I always felt like a had a testimony. Then when I went away to college my parents became inactive. It really made me take a step back and evaluate my testimony. Was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints the true church? Did I truly have my own testimony? So, I went back to the basics. I really took a look at the story of Joseph Smith. Did I believe that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ? I knew if I could gain a testimony of that, that everything else was true. I prayed, and prayed. I studied Joseph Smith's account, and prayed some more. I didn't have one huge experience to realize that it was true, it was just an overwhelming feeling of peace. He did see our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. He did translate the Book of Mormon. All the teachings in that book are true. I believe. It was never a big moment, it was just a lot of peace every time I prayed and studied it. I love this church, I count my blessings every day that I'm privileged to be a member of it.

How I live my faith

Living this faith is a daily thing. It is a part of all of me. During the day I find myself silently praying many times, giving thanks and seeking advice. Studying the scriptures and family prayers are also daily activities. Throughout the month I find myself checking in on the ladies in the ward that I visit teach as often as I can. I really enjoy spending time with them. As far as my current responsibility/calling in the ward, I teach the adult women (Relief Society) once a month. I teach from a talk given at the previous General Conference by one of the Apostles. It is fascinating and challenging for me. One thing that I love about our faith is that it is a part of our everyday life. It is who I am. It's not just a once a week thing. It is weaved throughout my entire being. I love this gospel.
