Hi I'm Brittany

I am a dancer, a vocalist, an actress, a violinist, a pianist, a writer, a daydreamer. I am an artist and I am a mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I am an artist. I love to be creative in every aspect of life. I've danced all my life, violin'd (my creative word for the day) and wrote my way through Junior High, and sang and acted my heart out through High School with occasional illustrations on the side. I have just finished a year of college, majoring in Modern Dance, while singing and playing the piano and violin for various people, and getting hired as an extra in films. Creativity is something that I just can't live without and I practically go crazy if I am not doing something creative everyday. None of this could ever be possible if not for the support of my dear family. I grew up as an only child until I was 17, then my little brother was born. He was the miracle baby that we never thought would come into our lives but wonderfully he did. My parents are my anchor and the greatest teachers for me, I value them beyond anything in this world. As of right now, I am happily single, almost 20 and preparing to serve my mission in Kobe, Japan. I can't wait to start one of the greatest adventures of my life and share the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and raised in Utah but my parents were never truly active when I was younger. There were many Sundays spent at home instead of Church, activities that were purposely forgotten about, and prayers often left unsaid before bed. I often felt like I wasn't living up to my full potential, there was an emptiness that I couldn't fill no matter how much I dived into school, received high grades, and was successful in all my extracurricular activities. It wasn't until after my eighth grade year and my family relocating to Michigan that I decided to do something about this hole in my life. I attended Seminary for the first time, which is basically an intense scripture study for youth. It changed my life. I began seeing the value of the teachings of the Savior, how they apply to my life and this modern world, and how I can better myself and live the best I can be. I started attending church regularly, which lead to my parents' reactivation and a strengthening of our family that we never had before. I also read the Book of Mormon for the first time all the way through when I was Sophomore in High School and for the first time gained a testimony of the power of scripture. I now can not go a night without reading my scriptures and I despise missing church because I can feel the difference in my happiness and life when I miss them. But the change was subtle, hard work in understanding the scriptures and exploring for myself if this church and the Gospel was true was the only way I received my answers. For if you do not have the questions, how can you expect to receive answers?

How I live my faith

By being the best example I can be at all times, and all things, and in all places. You never know who is watching you, so why not be the best you are everywhere you go? You never know, you helping someone in need, doing service that you expect no reward, and you going out of the way to do the right thing when no one is looking could be the very action that could change someone's life. But being an artist, I always try to show my beliefs and ideals through my creative outlets. It is never overwhelmingly Christ centered (which isn't wrong to begin with) but I am always drawn to stories, dances, and music that have inspiring, life-improving messages that are ultimately divine in nature. In a world where entertainment glorifies subjects that can be very destructive to the soul; it is hard, extremely hard to be a performing artist where fellow artists (who are generally good people) ask you to do things that just doesn't feel right and goes against everything I believe. But I love the Lord to much to give up eternal happiness for a moment of acceptance from Man. That is why my artistry will always be devoted to praising God and changing the world.
