Hi I'm Brisa

I love spending time in the sun, going boating, and taking trips with my family.........and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hello! I am the second oldest, and only daughter of five boys! I love to play volleyball and tennis. My favorite time of the year is when it is warm! I love to go boating, swimming and taking trips with my family. I love anything and everything chocolate. I love to be crafty even though my crafts hardly ever work out, but practice makes perfect! My favorite colors are white and anything floral!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that it is the only true church on this earth today. Through this gospel I have become a better person and It has brought me closer to my Heavenly Father. I know that my Heavenly Father loves and cares for me. Jesus Christ is our brother and our savior. He loves us so much that he made an infinite sacrifice to atone for our sins so that we can be forgiven of them, and to be able to make it back to our Heavenly Father and live with him again. I am so grateful to know that the plan of salvation is true and that we can live with our families forever even after we die. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, and through him Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ restored the true gospel. I also know that he translated The Book of Mormon, and that it is the word of God. I am so grateful for our modern day prophet Thomas S. Monson, and I know that he was called of god to lead this church. I also know that we are able to receive modern day revelation through him. Our Heavenly Father is always there for us, all we have to do is pray to him and ask for his help and comfort and he will always be there. I am grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and to know that he is always there protecting me and guiding me.I know that our Father in Heaven loves each and every one of us and he wants us to come back to live with him again. I am so grateful to know these truths and I know that the gospel has changed my life for the better. I live by its teaching and precepts because I know that my Heavenly Father blesses us when we obey him.

How I live my faith

I have been in the Laurels presidency in the Young Womens' program, and it taught me how to be a leader and it also taught me to care about others and to think of their needs. I have recently graduated from high school and I am now part of the Compassionate Service committee which is an amazing experience because I get called to help sisters and families that are in need of assistance, and friendship. I attend church weekly and I will also be serving a mission this year. Reading my Scriptures and praying daily has really grown my testimony and has drawn me closer to Christ and My Heavenly Father. I know that when you live the commandments that he will open the doors of heaven and bless you and your family.
