Hi I'm Brielle

I'm an older sister. I'm a full time student. I'm a full time missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time student trying to become a high school math teacher. I've always loved school and learning, and love the challenge that comes with math. I also love helping people and teaching them how to do things, so I've been a math tutor for a few years and have come to realize that teaching math is what I want to do. I also love my family. They are what means most to me in my life, and I know that they are always there for me in my life and my struggles. I am an older sister, and that has been the most rewarding part of my life thus far. I love being able to share what I know and what my hobbies are with my siblings. It's been fun to see my siblings take interest in things I love such as growing plants. I love answering their questions, and I love being there for them in everything that they do.

Why I am a Mormon

To me, this gospel represents hope and happiness. I know that this church is true, and I know that my savior loves me. Whenever I am having struggles in my life, I always can find help, strength and comfort through the church. I have been so blessed to be able to grow up knowing that I will be with my family forever, and that God knows me and my challenges personally. I know that he loves his children, and that he has sent a prophet in these days like in the times of the scriptures to help and guide us through this life. He has given us the Book of Mormon, another Testament of Jesus Christ from those in the Americas. I have read it and know for myself that it is the word of God. I have received answers, peace, and known of God's love for me countless times as I've read it's pages. I am so grateful for this church and the happiness it gives in my life. Though things do get tough, I will always have help given me, and I absolutely know that this church is God's true church with the fulness of His gospel restored once again on the Earth.

How I live my faith

Right now I help in my ward's nursery, where the children between 18 months and 3 years of age come while their parents go to adult classes. I love giving my small lessons to the kids about loving others, praying and other simple subjects like being thankful. It helps me remember those little lessons that we sometimes forget as we get older. I am serving as a full-time missionary now and I feel so blessed to be able to share what has blessed me in my life with others.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Because God loves all his children, He called prophets to teach, lead and guide His people over in the Americas. Just as the Bible is a recording of God's dealings with the people over in Jerusalem, The Book of Mormon is a record of God's dealings with his children over in the Americas. The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ, and contains His gospel. The Bible and the Book of Mormon go hand in hand because The Book of Mormon is a record of God's same gospel as the Bible, just in another portion of the World. As we read the Book of Mormon, we come closer to Christ and are able to understand and verify more fully His teachings. Show more Show less
