Hi I'm Bethany Brundage

I am from the great state of California, I have been called to serve in the Portugal, Lisbon Mission. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I live in the beautiful state of California, with my amazing siblings and incredible parents. I go to school in Utah and completed one year of college before I made the decision to serve a full-time mission. I love anything outdoors, and every kind of animal. I fall in love with something new everyday. I try to experience life as it comes and be present in every situation. My life is full of spontaneous musical numbers, I love to sing! Photography, skateboarding, bargain shopping, hiking, concert going, and loving life are my hobbies. And last but not least I love Jesus Christ, and his church more than anything else on this earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in this gospel. I chose to be baptized at the tender age of eight, and that seems young, but even at that age I knew that there was divine purpose for me, and that that was exactly what Heavenly Father wanted me to do. Since then of course there has been struggles. Moving around helped me realize that I need my savior Jesus Christ every single day. Even when I felt most alone in the world, I knew my Heavenly Father hadn't forgotten me. I am not perfect, but I have grown through my trials and experiences, and I certainly know what it is like to feel lost, and alone... but I know now more than ever, that this gospel can heal you. It can heal your heart when broken, your soul when confused, and dry your tears. The love the savior Jesus Christ has for each of us is real, and it can help us achieve our wildest dreams. The few months you spend at home preparing to serve a mission everyone asks you, why do you want to serve a mission? Why do you want to put your life on hold for a year and a half for the sake of this religion? To be honest, the answer to that question was easy for me. I love my Savior, and I want to show my love to him by loving and serving his children of this earth, my fellow brothers and sisters. I want to tell them they have a Father who loves them, and misses them and help them return to the path that will lead them to our Heavenly Father. This gospel is who I am, and I am dedicating the next 18 months of my life for it because I know it's true.

How I live my faith

Everyday I try my best to live my faith, and I think that entails just obeying the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is a conscious decision everyday to follow him and I try my best to do so. Serving others, loving everyone as Christ does, being diligent disciples of Christ, and continuing to be faithful is all that Heavenly Father asks of us, and I think the joy and blessings that he gives in return are eternal and far worth the sacrifices.
