Hi I'm Brittney

I love to laugh. I will be serving the people of El Salvador and Belize for 18 months. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Brigham Young University- Idaho. I've decided to study Communications, and I love every minute of it! I'm a people person... I love to be around others and hear of their experiences. I like discovering new things and ideas, and most of all enjoy the little perks of life. I've also decided to serve a full-time mission, and will be leaving October 2nd to share the gospel of Jesus Christ for 18 months. I'm excited to learn Spanish as I serve the people of El Salvador and Belize!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and my parents always have had a strong testimony of the gospel. I was encouraged by church leaders and family members to find out for myself if all that I believe is true. Something I've really admired about growing up in the Latter Day Saint culture is that it was never "just take my word for it", it was always "find out for yourself". Many people talk about typically one experience in their lives that changed who they were... a spiritual experience in which that very instant they just KNEW the gospel was true. For me... it wasn't exactly like that. I remember one day thinking to myself... what if all of this is bogus? I haven't had an earth-shattering witness that what I'm embracing is true. What if this is all a lie? But then I realized, what really would be the lie is for me to deny what I've always known deep down in my heart to be true. I have had so many little spiritual experiences and small assurances that what I read from the scriptures and hear from the prophets are words of truth and inspired by the Lord. I am a Mormon because it is a place where all the puzzle pieces come together to form the whole picture.

How I live my faith

One of the best ways I can think of.... service. It doesn't have to be anything incredibly large or time consuming, because some of the smallest acts mean the most. I like to use the element of surprise... and get 'em when they least expect it! Usually when I make it personal, it seems to matter more. When living back in Kentucky, my best friend and I would drive around and think of ways to serve those in need. We tried to do it pretty regularly, and whether it was dropping off a plate of cookies or babysitting for free... it was always a satisfying feeling. The power of service and how it demonstrates my faith can be summed up into one quote: "Live in such a way that those who don't know Christ but know you, will want to know Christ because they know you." - H. David Burton.
