Hi I'm Brittany

I am from Utah, am the oldest of 6 and the mother of 4 including twins. I have type 1 diabetes and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 4 great kids. Our daughter Addie is 13, son Hayden is 10 and our twins Austin and Carter are both 7. I have type 1 diabetes as does one of my twins Austin. We love to do things as a family; hiking, biking, camping, snowmobiling, sledding, water-skiing, tubing, basketball, baseball and all kinds of games. I play the piano and my daughter plays the guitar and ukulele and we all love to sing and dance. I am a hard worker and our children are building a strong work ethic too. I personally love playing sports and am athletic in nature. Occasionally I like to write, I also enjoy cooking. I love to be with my friends and family and love to serve others!

Why I am a Mormon

For those who may not be Mormons the answer to this question may not be easily understood. We can ask ourselves a more common question to help us understand, "Why are we parents?" The hardships sometimes seem to outweigh the positives. Our children cost us money, time for ourselves and with friends, they are physically exhausting at times and send us on emotional roller coasters of uncertainty, fulfillment, frustration, love, heartache, and joy. Yet, it is the desire of our hearts to explore this facet of life and to do it well. There is no denying the feelings of love we often feel as we take quiet peaceful moments of parenthood and store them away in our hearts only to be brought out in the harder times of life as a testimonial to ourselves that we have greatly loved and have been and are loved. With each child, and for every year that passes we grow in wisdom and love, through our experiences and our efforts to be the parents we hope to be. Jesus Christ invited all to come unto him. In doing so we become like him. We are baptized, we strive to serve and show love to others around us and we help others find their way. When I was 8 years old I knew that I had been taught truth within the walls of my home. Though living high standards is not always easy; much like parenting, the reward is great. When you read the word of god in his holy scriptures you can feel the much desired love of Him who created our very being indefinately and line upon line I have increased in knowledge and understanding. I know the fullness of the gospel has been restored to the earth and that we can seek it and know it for ourselves as promised by prophets present and past. In my own way I hope to be numbered not just among the believers of Christ, but among those who are doers of his word. For as the apostle Paul said, "Show me thy faith without works, and I will show thee faith by my works." This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

This is a good time to reflect, I have always striven to hold myself to high moral standards. These accompanied by the service I render to my children, family, friends, and those whom I serve in whatever calling I have been extended, are some of the outward ways I live my faith. More importantly I have a testimony of prayer, tithing, hope, work, service, missionary work, the scriptures, the temple, and above all the atonement of our savior Jesus Christ. This has come through trials of faith and experimenting upon the word of God. Through regular meeting and temple attendance, scripture study, good works and repentance, through fervent prayer and obedience to the commandments of God I have acquired this knowledge and understanding that upholds me through the trying times in my life, and encourages me to endure to the end. I have great joy in this earthly life because of the testimony I both have and strive to live. I know God lives and that he knows and loves me as his daughter, I know his gospel brings peace and true happiness in this life and in the great eternal realm and that we through the redeemer of the world can live eternally with our families if we live as he lived. This faith guides my actions daily and is refining my soul to become what my Father in Heaven wants for me to be, eternally glorified.
