Hi I'm Brittany

I am a daughter, aunt, chocolate lover, and a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love meeting and getting to know other people. My favorite things are swapping stories and cracking jokes! I enjoy sports and spending time with my family! I am studying nursing, but have recently taken an 18 month break from that in order to serve full-time as a missionary for this glorious church in the New Jersey, Morristown Mission! Family is the number one priority in my life and I am so grateful that mine is eternal!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel brings me everlasting happiness. I know that if I strive to live according to the principles in the gospel and live my life around that which I have been taught, that I will be able to return to our loving Heavenly Father and live with Him again. I know that this is possible because of the atoning sacrifice performed by my older brother, Jesus Christ. I know that He lives and loves and knows each and every single one of us individually. I know that I am never alone and that I can always call upon my Savior and Redeemer for strength and guidance. He is literally our big brother and always has our back! I am a Mormon because I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is the true and living gospel on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I believe that you should be the same person as you are in the light and in the dark. I strive every day to become who He wants me to be, and try not to change for those around me. I know that I have many faults, but I also know that through Christ we can be strengthened. I believe in Christ and want to follow His example everyday to become more like Him. I take every oppurtunity that I can to share the light of Christ with other people. I believe that just by being yourself you have the potential to touch hundreds of people a day without even knowing it! Check out 3 Nephi 12:14-16, I challenge you not to hide your faith, but let it shine!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Deciding to serve a mission is a very personal decision, and the answer is different for everyone. I know that I, being a sister missionary, am not required whatsoever to serve a full time mission. Although, I felt the strong desire to serve and made the decision with the Lord's help that a mission was the right thing for me. I know that because of this decision, I have already been blessed and will be blessed more than I can even imagine. I also strongly believe that although you may not be set apart as a missionary for the church, you can be a missionary every single day in the words you say, the way you act, and the service you perform to others. Pray and ask our loving Heavenly Father what is best for you and your life, and I promise that he will not leave you hanging. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is honestly the most legit book I have ever read in my entire life! It is another testament of Jesus Christ and seriously is a road map in our lives. God has given us EXACTLY what we need to do to live with Him again, and all we have to do is read and study for ourselves. The Book of Mormon also has so many stories that can relate to anything that you are going through. Read it, study it, live it, love it!! Show more Show less
