Hi I'm Brittany

I love to study, run, and play my guitar. I'm a California Girl. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student at Brigham Young University. I'm studying chemistry. I love to run. I love to play my guitar. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family, and it was absolutely wonderful. However, there comes a time in everyone's life that they need to decide for themselves what they believe. I knew I felt good at church and I loved hearing the stories of Jesus and learning, but a few years ago, I really found out what this gospel is all about. My friend died and it was so hard for me. I felt like I was drowning. He was so young and it seemed so unfair. I was lost, and when I finally didn't know anything else to do, I hit my knees. I prayed like I never prayed before. I asked God to tell me He's there. I told Him I needed to know things were going to be okay, because I had a hard time believing they would be. I spent hours in my bedroom crying to my God. I surrendered my pride and gave it up to Him. I learned that night that prayers are heard, that someone understands me perfectly, and that I am loved. This gospel is about forgiveness. It's about family. It's about love. I know that everyone can get their answer, just as I did, if they turn to Him and truly listen, not with their ears, but with their hearts.

How I live my faith

I believe in Jesus Christ, but to me, just believing it isn't enough. I think being a true Christian means trying to live like Him. I am not perfect, and there is a lot I need to work on, but everyday I strive to live what I believe. The more I am patient and kind, the more I try to love people, the more my faith grows. I am grateful for Jesus Christ. He loves me, and I will live everyday trying to show Him I love Him too.
