Hi I'm Vanessa Brodrick

I'm a flip flop wearin Floridian. I chase little people around all day.I I love food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom to two beautiful children. I spend my days looking for engaging activities to do together. Swimming, zoo trips, art projects and books are all regular occurances in our home. I am married to an amazing man who loves his family and the Lord. I studied Marriage, Family, and human development at BYU with hopes to one day become a guidance counselor. I enjoy reading, blogging and cooking. My favorite sound in genuine laughter.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it brings me indecribable happiness. I am not talking about happiness that comes when you get a new pair of shoes, ride down a roller coaster or even spend time with great friends. This happiness come from an understanding that I am a child of God with a Heavenly Father that loves me and wants me to succeed. As I live the principles of the gospel I feel good, I am doing things of value and instilling principles and confidence in my children. Being a member of this church helps me challenge myself, think beyond myself, and do daily things to draw closer to my Savior. I never had "one moment" that I knew this gospel to be true. I have simply always lived as a Mormon and felt the spirit work in my life. I am so blessed to have this gospel.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to serve in many different areas of our faith. I currently work with the women's organization preparing service opprotunities, and training other leaders. I love interacting with such strong women of our faith and learning from their examples and testimonies. I have also spent a lot of my time working with the youth of the church developing uplifitng social activities, teaching classes on doctrines of our faith and loving them. They are amazing youth with a desire to stand as witnesses of Christ. In all of the areas I have served I have been uplifted by those with a strong conviction of our Hevanly Father's plan for us. I have been inpsired to be more faithful, more dedicated, more charitable and more loving.
