Hi I'm Breanna

I am from the Pacific Northwest. I love hard work, the outdoors, creatures great and small, horseback riding, family, and science.

About Me

I was born am the oldest child in my home. I was raised in a military family, both my parents served in the Air Force until I was 16 years old. I am a nerd, I love to learn especially science. Just as my mind is always going so is my radio, music helps keep me focused. I like to work with my hands, and find cars fascinating, I love to figure out how things work. I like cars but horses are my real passion, always have been and always will be. I am a horse girl through and through. My love for animals is not limited to horses though, I find all forms of life fascinating as such I am an aspiring veterinarian. I am currently going to college, and I have completed my junior year thanks to the fact I took college classes in high school. My schooling is on hold currently though as I prepare to serve a full time mission. Above all I value friendship and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons, some of them selfish others not. To begin, the selfish, this gospel gives my life direction, it helps me see what truly matters in life and cut out what doesn't. It also gives me strength, courage, faith, and hope during the stormy seasons of my life. The gospel fills me with strength beyond my own and peace when I my make mistakes because I understand my true nature and potential that I will one day reach thanks to the love of my beloved Savior, my big brother, my friend for eternity, Jesus Christ. Now, for the selfless reasons as to why I am a Mormon. First and foremost reason I am a Mormon comes from the fact that sense I was a small child I have a deep knowledge and testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel and the existence of my loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. There was a time in life where regular church attendance was not possible due to my life circumstances but I felt the hole in my life and craved the active influence of the gospel. The gospel also helps me to better strengthen m relationships with others by helping me change who I am and how I see the world around me. This allows me to build stronger friendships, have more respect for coworkers, greater love and patience for roommates, and a more eternal love for family members. This church also allows me to show my love and appreciation for Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father who have always strengthened me and blessed me at every turn of my life, making the impossible possible, the bitter that much sweeter, and teaching me just how much talent and strength I never knew I possessed. In short, I am a Mormon to improve myself, because it is the true gospel on the earth today, and following its principles shows my love and appreciation for all I have been given.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my actions and priorities in life. When I was teenager church activities were just another activity on my always long to do list and the principles learned were like Calculus important to learn but never to be used on a daily basis, however as I matured it came to mean so much more. For me I live my faith through the way I try to care for all of those I come in contact with on a daily basis, making my goal of every conversation to make someone feel better. I live my faith by each day pushing myself to be a better person, by becoming more temperate, patient, bold, compassionate, determined, educated, charitable, and involved. By trying to seize every opportunity and experience as a chance to grow in character so I can give back more to those I come in contact wit in my life. As I strive to develop myself into the person my faith tells me I can be, I am living my faith. Whether it is through different callings at church, in classes at school, how efficient I am as an employee, how I carry myself as a competitor, and how I enable others as I fulfill my different leadership positions.
