Hi I'm Brittany

I grew up in Utah. I love being around people. I love to have fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play ultimate Frisbee. I love dancing and singing. I just finished my degree in Exercise Science and love to see new things. I love to have fun and be around people. I want to be able to help people for the rest of my life. If I were put into a room with twenty strangers I probably would just start talking to people because I hate awkward silences. I love to laugh and make people laugh. Some say I am easy to tease because I give the best reactions. I try to live everyday to the fullest so that when I look back I get to enjoy it a second time and so that I won't be disappointed in the way I treated others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know of no other thing that can make me happier than to follow someone who was perfect. I know that my Savior lives because of this gospel. It helps me to know that no matter how many people I love pass away I get to see them again and give them a hug. I am a Mormon because I love the way I feel every time I walk into church, I feel complete and at home. I have the opportunity to serve others everyday because of this gospel. It teaches me that by serving others I learn to love as the Savior Loves. I know that no matter what happens I get to be with my family forever, because of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I get to live my faith by organizing a weekly get together where we pray and ask Heavenly Father to strengthen those around us. I live my faith by visiting some of the women in the congregation each month and make sure that they are taken care of.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Brittany
I think that some may call Mormonism a cult because they don't understand what it is that we do. A lot of the time people fear what we don't know or understand. I think some call us a cult because we are not like a lot of people. We are different, but different isn't always a bad thing. Once we learn about things we don't know or understand then we are able to remove the fear and see it for what it really is. The people of the church are good, kind, and are trying to follow the Savior Jesus Christ. "If there is anything virtuous, lovely, of good report, or praiseworthy we seek after these things." Joseph Smith. Let us all learn about others so we can understand and appreciate the good in all men, like the Savior did. Show more Show less
