Hi I'm Brynne Evans

I'm from Idaho. I'm an aspiring Speech Language Pathologist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20-years-old. I'm currently going to college aspiring to be a Speech Language Pathologist. I graduate with my bachelor's degree in May. I'm applying for graduate schools and hope to get a Master's degree also. I have a wonderful husband, he is going to school now also. He wants to be a Vet or a Doctor. I am also an older sister to 3 wonderful siblings and a daughter to 2 wonderful parents. I was raised in Idaho and yes, I love potatoes and I have milked cows. I was a true Idaho girl. I love to run, swim, bike, dance or anything else that makes my heart race. I love oreos, sleeping, movie nights, dates with the husband, playing games with the family, planning parties, singing to the radio, people, long chats with good friends and going to any warm beach-y place.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. At a young age, I learned the principles of the gospel were true. I knew every word to every primary song and I felt my Savior's love for me. As I moved away and went to college and didn't have my parents there to make me go to church and keep the standards I was raised with I was forced to decide what I wanted my life to be like. I soon began to really understand why I was taught to live the way I live. My freshman year I was very homesick. I missed my tiny hometown that was so sheltered from the world. I insanely missed my family. I felt like my life was so crazy, like I was so lost and didn't have anywhere to run. I did as I was taught though and still attended church every Sunday, took the sacrament, kept my covenants and this helped me truly felt the peace that the gospel brings. The biggest lesson I learned through that first year of college was that only one thing is more constant in this life than change and that is the gospel. The gospel gave power and peace to an 18-year-old girl that felt completely lost and scared. Although I was raised in the church from that point on I truly knew that I wanted the teachings of the gospel to be my lifestyle and beliefs forever.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday along with my husband. We also try to attend the temple monthly. I am a visiting teacher to two lovely ladies in my ward. I really enjoy visiting with them monthly and seeing how they raise their little ones. I pray to my Heavenly Father and try to read out of the Book of Mormon daily to learn more about the gospel. Mostly, I try to live my faith not just by doing things but by being. I try to be like the Savior is loving and non-judgmental of others. I try to understand others points of view and feel others pain and sympathize with them. I try to be a friend to those in need and those not in need. I try to be happy and grateful everyday for everything I am given. Although I try to be these things, I am not perfect so I also repent everyday for the things I don't do right and haven't tried hard enough at. I live my faith by using Jesus Christ as my foundation for all things.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?
