Hi I'm Bri

I love to laugh. I love being on stage. I am a nerd. I want to travel. I love my family and my dog. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am probably a stereotypical Mormon. I have lived in the Salt Lake Valley my entire life. I was born and raised in the church. I am currently going to school and hoping to study music education. Music is my passion. It has been a key part of my life since I was little. It all started when my grandma gave me a Broadway Kids cassette tap and I listened to it 24/7 for years! I'd make up dumb little routines to each of the songs, pretending I was a famous singer. Then I went on to piano lessons, flute lessons and years and years of band. I always loved singing, but I didn't believe I had any talent until I got to high school. I joined the choir and started doing musical theater. That's where I found my confidence. Now I love to sing. I love being on stage and performing. Whether it is in a musical, or a choir or singing a solo, I am addicted to performing and singing. Being apart of music brings me such joy. I can't think of anything more wonderful than teaching kids to love music the way I do. I believe that everyone deserves to know the joy and strength and happiness that music brings. It is gift and I can't wait to share it. :)

Why I am a Mormon

At first, I was a member of the church because my parents were. It's all I ever knew. But as I've grown up I have developed a testimony of my own and a love for the gospel. There wasn't one moment when suddenly I knew this was the true church. My conversion was very gradual. It grew as I did. At this point of my life, I know without a shadow of a doubt that this church truly is God's Church. Now that I have found that out for myself I have to work on being true to the church. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I would be a totally different person without it. Someone outside of the church might see it as an organization that tries to restrict you. It tells you no and keeps you from having "fun". I have never seen it that way. I am free to do whatever I want. I choose not to drink alcohol or caffeine. I choose not to smoke. And because of the choices I have made, I will never be weighed down by an addiction that would take over my life. I am free to act and think for myself. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet on the earth today. I love this church. Everything about it makes sense to me. It brings me comfort. It brings me hope. I would be lost without it.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I am the ward chorister. When we sing songs during our Sacrament meeting on Sunday I lead the music. It's not the hardest calling and I don't do very much, but it is want I have been asked to do by my local leaders, and I take it very seriously. I have also been asked to visit and watch over two other women in my ward in what we call in the Church "Visiting Teaching". At least once a month, I with a companion will go visit with my assigned sisters and make sure they are doing ok and share with them a brief spiritual lesson. We are all at school right now, so none of us has family around for help or comfort or just a friend. It is so wonderful to know that each girl in our ward has 2 sisters who they can turn to. That is the point of Visiting Teacher. Caring for our sisters in the ward.
