Hi I'm Shelby Brimley

I'm a yoga lover. I love cleaning my apartment. I'm a wife and a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recently married BYU student in the Elementary Education major. I try to go to a free yoga class once a week and I teach an after school program to English Language Learners at a local elementary school. My husband reads Harry Potter to me sometimes in the evenings and we love to go hiking together! I play piano and paint and I'm constantly making small improvements to our little apartment.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the doctrines The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I served a mission for the church in Cleveland, Ohio. When I was there I learned for myself The Book of Mormon is true. I've found that when I read the Book of Mormon, it makes me happier and it helps me deal with my challenges more capably. I also know that the priesthood that has been restored means that I can be with my husband (and future children!) forever. That gives my life a lot of meaning and purpose. I love this church! I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and all they have given me. I know Joseph Smith is a Prophet and I know this is Christ's restored Church. I feel privileged to have the gospel and to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to make living my faith is a daily, conscious, aspect of my life. I'm constantly making goals to read my scriptures more and have more meaningful prayers and to be kinder to my husband :) Without the Gospel, I don't think I'd had the truth and direction I need to have real peace and joy in my life. Somedays I don't feel full of joy, but because I've felt the Spirit in my heart when I choose righteous things, I know if I keep trying and relying on Jesus Christ, that joy will come again and will eventually be with me after this life. My faith helps my husband and I in our relationship. It also helps me reach out to people in my ward, school classes, and community.
