Hi I'm Brittney

I grew up in Utah. I love to have fun and play all sorts of sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am on a full time mission serving my Savior in the Greater Detroit, Michigan area. When I get home I will continue to attend a local college in Utah. I am on my way to become an Occupational Therapist. I love to work with kids and bake! The age range in my family is 25 years, and I have 6 brothers and sisters. I love family! I have only moved once and it was just up the block. I love to be outdoors and I am growing a love to exercise more and more.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I cannot think of my life without it. I love that it is simple, yet so powerful and meaningful to me. I love the plan of happiness. My mom past away when I was 12 years old. Knowing that I can live again with her means more than anything. I find comfort in knowing that I can live with my family eternally and I can't wait. I love knowing that I can talk to my Heavenly Father whenever I want to. It is like having a best friend who listens no matter what and then will bless you for what you are doing. I also love knowing that I am not alone, that I have a Savior Jesus Christ who has already done what is required for me to return back to my Father. I love that he knows how I am feeling and what I am going through. I love the Gospel!

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by serving a mission for the Lord. It has been one of the best experiences in my life. I have come to know that my Savior loves me and the people I am serving so much! He wants all of us to come unto Him, because it will bring so much peace and happiness in our lives. Most of all though is that I love to let people know how much they matter to me and my Savior Jesus Christ. I also find joy in doing quite acts of service and bringing a smile onto peoples face.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Within the church no one gets paid for their service. I love this thought because it reminds me of why I attend church, and that is because I am striving to follow my Savior Jesus Christ. When Christ was on the earth He served out of love for the people, He gave his life freely because he loved us and desired for us to return to live with our Heavenly Father. To me the service that others and I give is little to what my Savior did for me. Right now I am serving as a full time missionary for the church and I get the opportunity to pay my way to bless others how I have been blessed. I also know that as I have served within the Mormon church I have been seen way more blessings than time I have put in. Show more Show less
