Hi I'm Brittany Gerber

I'm Outdoorsy, I'm a Convert, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an outdoorsy person and like to do everything outside. I did not grow up in the church but was introduced by my best friend and sister. I am very service oriented person, I get great peace and joy from helping others. I plan on becoming a Registered Nursing after my mission in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Having the opportunity to serve my Lord and Savior has been a great privilege and I love the chance to serve the Lord this way and give back. I will forever be grateful for the chance to be baptized and the love and support that has helped me get to where I am today. It has become harder to stay worthy in this world today with music, television and other media channels becoming so Unchrist-like. The Lord, our God, will not let the righteous be suffered by the wicked as long as we stay on the path that He has set for us. He sends his missionaries around the world to spread His Gospel. This is His Work and Glory.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon because for the first time in my life I felt like I had a purpose and a place to belong and it was where God wanted me to be. Being a Mormon is not something that is a one day a week religion. It is a way of living. My conversion started when I was 14. I was grew up Catholic but had Mormon friends, one of whom asked me to go to Girls Camp with her. She knew that I was going through some troubling times with my father about to pass away. At Girls camp I felt love from people I never knew before and I felt the Spirit whisper to me. Feeling that made me hunger for more. To know that I was not alone and there was someone that truly did care and loved me unconditionally. As time went on I continued to search and realized that it was right in front of me. That Spirit of God was there and was very much available to me. I struggled for that right to have that constant companionship of the Holy Ghost to be with me. It was a immense relief that I was finally able to be baptized and on the road that God had in store for me from the beginning. For the first time I knew what I was doing and where I was going in my life. Through all of the trial before my baptism God was very aware of me and I could feel his presence as I fought for that right to be baptized. God kept me going when I thought I could no longer keep going. The Lord lifted me when I was weak and comforted me when I desperately needed it. The lord can do the same to everyone who is sincerely seeking.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by reminding myself why the Lord did what he did for us, was because he loved us enough to give his life. I can only do what is right and follow the things he has asked of us to do and that is to love everyone. Sharing with them apart of me and letting them see why I chose to be a Mormon. I Live my faith by serving others the way Christ would if he was still on the Earth today. I am not afraid to say I am a Mormon and proclaim his word and love. This is who I am, this is my life.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Brittany Gerber
To be able to enter into God's Holy Temple is to be worthy of it. It is a privilege and a right to enter into the Temple. A privilege because we must make ourselves worthy and be in-accord with God's commandments. It is a privilege because it is a sacred and should mean everything to you as a member of the Church. It is a right because we are members of God's Church and we want everyone to have the chance to enter into the Temple. Also because we are God's children and the Temple is a place where you can commune with the Lord more than the usual prayer. As long as they are keeping themselves obedient to the Lords commandments. It is a place to go to have peace and quiet and to get away from worldly cares. There is nothing secret in the Temple. Its sacred not secret. We don't talk about it outside of the Temple because we don't want things that are sacred to be talked casually about. In the Temple we do sacred ordinances for those that are dead. It talks about in the Bible that they did baptisms for the dead. If they did them then why don't more religions do it now? God wants to give his children all of the chances that he can to let them come to him. We also preform marriages in what we call a sealing room. Where couples can be sealed together for time and all eternity not just for this life and their children will be sealed to them. The things we do in the Temple are really not for this world it is for the next life we all will have. I love the Temple. :) Show more Show less
