Hi I'm Brianna Barnes

I'm a mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it! :) I currently am serving in the California Ventura Mission! :)

About Me

I love spending my time with the people I love! It's the BEST! One of the things that I do love to do a lot, is go on long car rides with my Best Friend, and just blast music in the car, and sing to our hearts content! It's the greatest! Also, I am serving in the Great California (Adventure) Mission, and have LOVED EVERY SINGLE SECOND! I love being out here, and having the wonderful privilege of serving Heavenly Father's children. Before my mission, I was a Special ED Bus Attendant. I took care of Special Needs kids with Down Syndrome, and Autism. I loved every minute of that job. Those kids were the cutest! After I am home from my mission, I will be attending college, and hoping to go into Special ED for teaching, and Physical Therapy. Then sometime down the road, I hope to be married, and be a loving mother! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am A Mormon, because it makes me happy! I have grown up in this wonderful church, and I have come to know that it is true! This precious gospel of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is something that I hold so very dear and precious to my heart. I wanted to share this gospel with everyone around me, and so I decided to serve a mission, and am here! The greatest thing that I love telling people, is the infinite amount of love that our Precious Father in Heaven has for each and every one of His children, and that He will not leave us comfortless. He loves us too much! I love my Father in Heaven, and because of Him, and through Him, I have come to realize the true divine potential that I do have in this life :) He helps me see that I am a true Daughter of a Loving Heavenly Father :) Nothing makes me happier than serving other people, and I love serving Heavenly Fathers children. I love all of you, and I want each and every one of you to know that you are LOVED! I extend an invitation to all of you! Find out if this gospel is true for yourself, and come partake of His blessings that He so badly wants to give you! :) He will answer you, I promise! :) Always remember to scatter sunshine!

How I live my faith

I show and live my Faith by sharing my light with others that I see around me, and glorifying my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ in all things, and sharing that happiness with others as well :)

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Brianna Barnes
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is something that is so very special and sacred, and helps a lot of people, and I know that it has especially helped me in my life. Ever since Jesus Christ came to the Earth, He always fulfilled the will of His Father. He was able to complete the Atonement, because He lived a perfect life, so He was the only one that could do what He did. Everyone in this life has a specific and very special role in this life, and Jesus Christ's was to die for all mankind, that they might be saved through Him. He made it possible for us to live again, and to be forgiven of our sins. Through repenting of our sins, we change ourselves for the better, and come closer with Heavenly Father. Heavenly Father loves us, even when we mess up. It was necessary for Jesus Christ to come to this Earth and complete His Atoning Sacrifice, so that we can follow those steps of having Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Atonement, Repenting of our wrongs, Being Baptzed, Recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and most importantly, Enduring to the End. It's important that we try our hardest to the very end so that we can give as much back to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for all that they have done for us. :) Show more Show less
