Hi I'm Brianna

I'm a Mormon

About Me

My full name is Brianna Elene Ellis. I am 5 foot 4 inches tall. I have brown hair and hazel eyes. I love music! I love to sing, dance, and perform! I absolutely love being around people! I am currently a sophomore at Lehi High School. I plan on getting all my high school credits done by next summer. My senior year I plan on going to beauty school to become certified so that I can work my way threw college. I want to be a councilor so that's 8 years of schooling... yikes! But I know that it will all pay off! Im one of the most understanding people you will ever meet! I love listening to people and helping them with there problems! I am so excited for what my heavenly father has in store for my future! He has given me so much to be thankful for in my life! And the gospel is first on that list! I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

So you know all the words the every person loves to hear? Such as love, hope, strength, joy, beauty, peace, grace, forgiveness, etc. Threw the gospel all those words are possible! I feel my heavenly fathers love every day! This gospel gives me so much hope! It gives me a way to live with my husband and family for all of eternity! I know that my heavenly father wouldn't put me threw anything I can't handle. And that right there gives me so much strength! not to mention how much strength I receive from one prayer. I believe there is a difference between joy and happiness. I get happiness everyday from getting an A on a test or finally getting that dance move down that I had been working on for months. But I have never in my life felt such humbling joy than I do from the gospel! Ever since I was young I was made fun of. kids said I was fat and ugly and even said that I had a deformed body.. Those things hurt and stick with you for quite a while. But when I went into the YW program at 12 years old. I felt for the first time how much I was worth to my Father in heaven. I know that I am so beautiful gods eyes. Not even to mention how much beauty that is in the world that he created for us! The grace of my God and his son my Savior is unexplainable! I don't know if I were put in that situation I would be able to die on the cross like Christ did for me! I know that no matter what threw the atonement I will always be forgiven! I love the power of the atonement! That's why I'm Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith threw example! I want people around me to see how much joy the gospel brings in my life! I think the hardest part about being Mormon is the stereotype that we are judgmental and pushy. I get told all the time that Mormons look down upon others who are not members of our faith. And honestly hearing people that are not lds say that members of our church make them feel that way, breaks my heart. But here is a great reminder for us all! The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a perfect church, ran by imperfect people! I try and live my faith as understanding and loving as I would want my heavenly father and savior Jesus Christ to be towards me.
