Hi I'm Brenna Russell

I grew up in Vegas, I'm a college student, I play the Flute, I love to travel and go on random adventures, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am originally from Las Vegas, Nevada. I play the flute in my spare time. My favorite band is Coldplay, and alternative (kind of 90's) rock [Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, U2, etc.] is my favorite kind of music. I also like anything else that's good, I don't really just stick to one genre. My favorite color is green, and my favorite super hero is Green Lantern. I drive a 2006 Mini Cooper S named Sheldon (after Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper) and love to go fast in it. I have been trained as an EMT basic. I would love to learn how to fly a plane, and possibly become a Life-flight paramedic. I love modeling and worked for Redken L'oreal as a runway model. I also play the flute and have used that as my talent in some beauty pageants that I have been in. I am the oldest grandchild in my family. I have grown up in the church my whole life, and have a firm testimony of Jesus Christ and his Atonement for us. I know that he lives, and I know that he was sent here by our loving and living Heavenly Father, who wants to give us every opportunity for us to come back to back to live with him again, and that he sends the Holy Ghost to comfort us when we need him. I know that Jesus Christ felt every pain, both physical and mental, that we have or ever will feel, and it brings me great peace to know that there is always someone (Christ) who understands our pains and sufferings perfectly, and I am extremely grateful for Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I have stayed a Mormon throughout my life, because it has been proven to me that without Heavenly Father and the gospel in my life, the world becomes gray and gloomy. I don't ever want to feel how I felt when I went away from the church again. It was one of the saddest times in my life.

How I live my faith

I love being a part of the church. The Joy and the knowledge that the gospel brings always leaves me stunned. There have been so many times in my life that I've been in a rough spot and Heavenly Father and the atonement of his son Jesus Christ have pulled me through. I feel Heavenly Father's love for me everyday! He is always careful to make sure that I know he's there for me. Especially when I follow the teachings and the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I can honestly say that some of the most amazing, joyful, and peaceful moments of my life always occured when I was doing something involving the church.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Seek out the Mormon Missionaries. They are the cool looking guys in white button ups, ties, and riding bikes (usually). You can also find some on mormon.org. Show more Show less
