Hi I'm Bria

About Me

During my Junior and Senior year of high school I got the amazing chance to do Cosmetology schooling and was able to graduate with my license. This skill has been an utmost blessing in my life for the amazing people I have met and the chance to grow through the conversations and interactions while I cut hair and beautify;) I love every minute of it!! it has also allowed me to save up and prepare for my mission which I am so grateful for!!!

Why I am a Mormon

There was a time my choices were not inline with the teaching of the gospel. i was in such sorrow and despair but i did not understand why everything i was during seemed to dig me in a deeper whole of sadness. Everything people and the media said to bring me joy just brought me down. My sister saw this in me and sought out to help me. although raised in the church we were not that active. i desired religion and spirituality so as i went to masses and synagogues and learned much but still felt hollow. it wasn't until i heard music from lds artists that a real change started. i did not really understand the meaning and impact of the holly ghost but every time the Mormon tabernacle choir played tears filled my eyes and the spirit of the lord embraced me. My sweet mother invited me to sacrament one day and as soon as the hymns began once again the tears flooded the spirit of our savior was there. through this experience i decided to start practicing the Mormon beliefs. i stopped drinking and doing other activities that were against the the Mormon standards and started going to church every Sunday, reading my scriptures every night, praying, and continuing to listen to the beautiful music of the hymn book. through this change my heart began to fill once again with happiness. with joy. with love. every day since i praise our father in heaven for his tender mercies. and for the beautiful seed of the testimony of the church of Jesus Christ in my life. i love church music i love this gospel and every principle because i know it is to protect my body, mind, and spirit. i testify of his sweet and loving ways, and look forward to the day to be in his loving arms again.

How I live my faith

As soon as I turned 18 I got the awesome privilege to teach the 8 and 9 year old primary!! I LOVE these children and the other ladies I get to teach with. I have seriously learned so much more than I thought possible just by being with these beautiful children. you know how they say you learn more through teaching then being the student.. yup that is definitely true!!! not only have these kids brought lessons of giving and patience but the chance to teach them about the gospel and loving way of Christ has brought an even stronger testimony in my life.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Talk to him though prayer and ask him for reassurance and love. Keep his commandments, which bring you closer to god and help you know that he lives Read in the book of Mormon Show more Show less
