Hi I'm Brenna

I'm from beautiful Boise Idaho. I love to dance. I love to craft. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second child and the only girl surrounded by 3 wonderful brothers. People always ask me if it was rough being the only girl but honestly I was always kind of the princess of the family. Literally. I was a princess for Halloween 10 years in a row. Sometimes I switched it up and was a fairy princess or a ballerina princess but there was almost always some type of tiara involved. I've been wearing leotards and tutus since I could walk and strongly believe that anything can be improved with a little glitter and glue. I love art and being creative. I have been known to be an impulsive crafter and start more projects than I have time to finish, but it all seems to work out eventually, or everything ends up just being a giant mess. Just ask my mom. I grew up in Boise Idaho and loved it! It really is the best place in the world. Growing up most of my time was spent at dance practice and doing homework, but I wouldn't have spent it any other way. I was one of those weird children that just really liked school. I have had a few different majors at BYU, but am again undecided. I like a lot of different things and haven't quite figured out how to fit that all into one major. I'm still trying to figure my life out but loving every second of it and learning more each day! This past fall I left on my mission to Mesa Arizona! I love being a missionary for the church and it brings me more happiness than I could have imagined!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the way that this church has taught me to has brought me such happiness. Keeping standards has helped to simplify my life, and helped me realize what is truly important. I love this church because it is all about self improvement through Jesus Christ. Every single person on this earth has the opportunity to become happier and a better person because Christ died for our sins because he loved each and everyone of us so much. Having the knowledge that Christ knows me and has felt everything that I feel gives me such comfort. Having a Heavenly Father that I can have a personal relationship with through prayer is such a blessing. Even though having faith and trusting in the Lord can be hard sometimes, knowing that a God with all knowledge is watching out for me and loves me makes it easier. I also love the church's emphasis on family. I love my family and although we're far from perfect I love having the knowledge that someday we will be all together again for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live a life like Jesus Christ did. I am far from perfect and constantly make mistakes but I know that because Christ suffered for my sins I can be perfected daily through him. I love participating in church. There are so many opportunities to learn and grow there. In my singles ward at school I got to be in the compassionate service committee where I got to know so many awesome girls by finding out what their needs were and helping them out in any way that I could. I also live my faith by sharing what I believe and what has made me happy with others. Not only did Christ die for me, but he continues to live for me today. I love being a part of Christ's church on earth today and serving and helping in any way that I can.
