Hi I'm Brianne Parsons

I'm a daughter, a wife, a cooking junkie, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors and all things beautiful! I would be content spending my day by the water taking endless amounts of pictures. I also enjoy being in the kitchen baking anything from bread to pies. I am married to my best friend. And someday I would love to have a bull dog named Watson.

Why I am a Mormon

In my teen years I had a question similar to this why am I a Mormon? I had grown up in the gospel and honestly never questioned anything until I had a friend start asking me questions. Very simple questions like why do you go to church and do you like it? These made me really ponder why I was going to church and what I truly had a testimony of. It wasn't an easy process I in fact stopped going to church for awhile because I felt like it was a waste of time. For awhile nothing seemed to be different in my life I in fact felt like I had more time for myself. But I started to feel so alone and lost even though I was constantly surrounded by people. I craved that feeling of having the spirit back in my life but I was scared and embarrassed to start over again. With help from friends and family I started going back and with going back I became happy again. Why I am a Mormon is because I know there is nothing in life that will make you truly happy then living the gospel will.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel because it is so easy to live my faith! In my everyday life I am surrounded by opportunities to share my personal gospel growths. Each month I am able to go with another sister in our ward to visit a sister. This opportunity is always such a wonderful time to share a short message as well as to discuss things going on in our life. Along with visiting other sisters each week I prepare for my lesson that I teach to my sweet little 3-4 year old church class. These opportunities give me a chance to live my faith on a daily basis.
