Hi I'm Brittney

I grew up in Utah snowboarding and mountain biking. I love to play the cello, I'm a junior high math teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My parents moved to Utah when I was 5. Growing up we went to different churches and I was baptized before my mom was. I remember my mom letting us decide for ourselves if this was what we wanted to do. I love to be outdoors; snowboarding, mountain biking, motorcycle riding, hiking, I love it all! I am an adrenaline addict and will try anything once. I'm a first generation college graduate. I've taught math at a residential treatment center, taught snowboarding lessons, and currently teach junior high math. I studied abroad in Greece, learned a lot about love and learning in a language you don't understand.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this is the true church of Christ. I have seen it bless my family and have watched family members become more confident after joining the church. My testimony and faith have recently been tried as I moved from Utah to Greece and had to stand up for what I believe in.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of the love Christ has for me and all his children. I stand up for what I believe in and I help people to understand why we do the things we do.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Your body is sacred and should be treated with respect. By dressing appropriately we are attracting the right kind of attention and you don't have to worry about what you are wearing when moving around. Growing up I learned the head shoulders knees and toes game in a different way, my parents changed it to help me to always buy the appropriate clothes when shopping. I learned that if you put your hands on your head and your shirt covered your tummy you're good. When you touched your shoulders if you felt the shirt you're good. When you bend down to touch your knees if you can feel your pants or shorts then they were good. When you reach down to touch your toes if your back was covered and you didn't need to hold your shirt against your chest you were good. This quick check in the dressing room always insured that my mom and dad would approve of the clothes I brought home. Show more Show less
