Hi I'm Brin

I'm a math major. I love to sing. I love to be sarcastic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in college pursuing a degree in Mathematics. When people hear that, they feel bad for me and/or think I'm crazy. Sometimes I think I'm crazy for choosing it too! But it's something I've always loved, and it just feels right for me, so I'm sticking to it. I have also always loved music, and I've come to realize in recent years that I really have a knack for classical singing. I'm not an amazing opera singer, but I have some skills. I also did percussion in high school; it is not uncommon to find me tapping some beat out on my hands, or singing my heart out any time of the day, wherever I may be! When it comes to listening to music, I love everything indie and alternative. I have a super sarcastic sense of humor- I think the dumbest things are funny, and often times my friends laugh not at my jokes, but at the fact that I'm stupidly laughing at myself for my own dumb jokes. Life's too short, so I prefer to live mine laughing! I'm also Mormon, and that's the most important part of my life and who I am! Being Mormon is awesome. It makes me happy, it gives me confidence, and it gives me courage.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have seen the great blessings it has brought both to my life, to my family's life, and to my friends' lives, and I know it has come through following the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us- they want nothing but what is best for us and what will bring us joy in this life. They have provided us with so many great things to help us learn, grow, and improve in this life. I have come to realize that the Mormon church really provides a great environment in which we can learn and grown, and do as Jesus Christ would want us to. Also, there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- that brings greater peace and comfort in times of heartache and trial than the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have made mistakes in my life, and I have gone through really hard times that I could not control; in those times, what helped me to move on and get past those rough patches was Jesus Christ. He knows each of us as individuals. He knows what we are going through. He cares for us. He is here to help us in every passing moment. Through the good times and the bad, I know that Jesus Christ is with me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has helped me to gain knowledge of these things I know for a fact to be true, and it's something I cannot deny! I'm Mormon through and true till the day I die! (And longer!)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by taking it one step at a time. The most important part to me is trying to follow Jesus Christ' example- He set a perfect example for us for how to live our lives. One of the biggest parts of the Savior's life was preaching the gospel, and I have made the decision to follow in His footsteps by serving a mission. I will be serving the people of Hong Kong and I am so excited for this great opportunity to love them, serve them, and teach them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
