Hi I'm Britta!

I am an undergraduate at BYU. I'm from North Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a simple girl who grew up in a small town in the North-West in the United States. I married my wonderful husband, Joe, in June 2013 and we absolutely love doing fun things with family. I enjoy doing outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, star gazing, and the usual. I am a student attending Brigham Young University in Utah and I'm interested in the Art Education program as well as the Geology program. I am hoping to continue my education even further and to help others learn. I have worked in silver mines and for the BYU Office of Information Technology. I live in a small apartment, but it suits us well for now.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen the amazing things this Gospel has done for the people who investigate it and who live by the things it teaches them. I didn't know this strongly as I was still young and growing up. My parents are both converts to the church, and I grew up in the church. Yet, I am a convert to the church myself. I had to come to know this church was true by myself and nobody else could make that decision for me. My life has been changed by the things I have learned about myself, my family, and my Savior by studying my scriptures and the words of the prophets. I am a better person today than I ever was or ever could be without the gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

No matter where I am I love helping others and staying involved in service. I have worked with youth groups and with people on an individual basis to give aid, cheer, time, and supplies to those in need. I have even been on self sponsored trips with family and friends to offer supplies and services to orphanages in Mexico. I also volunteer to sing in the church choir and help with music programs, and I love the things I am able to do.
