Hi I'm Brittany

I am grateful for the opportunity that I was able to grow up in the church. With that blessing, I have a responsibility!

About Me

I love meeting new people and making new friends. I loving singing, camping, writing, swimming, hiking and hanging out with my friends and my family. I was working as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assitant) before I got my Lds Mission call. I will be serving in the Federaly Way, Washington Mission. I am very excited to serve the Lord and have the opportunity to share this wonderful Gospel to the people in Washington.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this faith, I continue to follow and live this Gospel because I know its true. This Gospel makes me happy! I know I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and loves all of you. I know my older brother, Jesus Christ atoned for OUR sins so we can have the ability to be clean agian through Repentance.This life is HARD but with this Gospel it makes it possible for us to go through it happy. Our brother died for all of us on the cross because he loves us. Thomas S. Monson is the prophet of our church and I believe that he was called and ordained by God. He holds the proper authority, which is the Preisthood and was called by our Father to teach,guide and help us come back to him. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and I know its true. I have read it and asked of God if it is true as it is taught in "Mosiah." I have NO doubt in this Gospel. Why? Because I have prayed to my Father in Heaven, who I KNOW is up there and who loves me and all of his children dearly. I have prayed to him with a sincere heart and asked him myself if this Gospel is true. I am testifying that I felt something, a happy feeling, a burning in my chest, an impression that is hard to explain but I know where the source comes from. Its the Holy Spirit who wittnessed to me that this Church is true. I am a Mormon because it sincerely makes me happy and gives me the knowledge of who I am, where did we come from?, why are we here? and Where am I going? You can have all those answers given to you through this Gospel! Whoever is reading this I promise to you having joy on this earth is possible. You can understand your purpose here on Earth..but all you gotta to do is Pray to Him, your Father. I promise to you he will let you know this Church IS true! :)

How I live my faith

This Gospel gives me so much joy! I live it by waking up every morning with hope. Starting every day as if it was my last day on Earth. This Gosepl is amazing, it gives me the knowledge that I need in order to rise up when I fall and to stay strong and smile when I want to cry and feel weak. This life IS going to be hard but with this Gospel you KNOW you will be able to make it! Service is very important and is reccomened in our faith. We believe we all are Gods Children. So that makes us sisters and brothers. We also believe that as children of God, we should help each other so we can return back to him after this life. Service is encouraged in our church. We want to be a good example to others and are willing to stretch out our hand and offer help to those in need. This Gospel creates unity with people and invites trust and faith to come into our lives.

What is the First Vision?

A young boy named Jospeh Smith wanted to know what church to join. He was confused at the time because he was surrounding by different religions and churches. He pondered the question "Which one is the true?" over and over in his head. One day he found himself reading in James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God...." So he did just that. One day he went into a grove of trees known as the "Sacred Grove" and kneeled down and started to pray to God. He was visited by Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. They told him none of the churches were true. This wonderful event is called "The First Vision." Joseph Smith's visistation that day changed his life. He restored the true Gospel back on this earth which is called the "The Restoration." The occured so others may have the opporunity to know and experience the truth also. Show more Show less
