Hi I'm Brittany

I play competitive ultimate frisbee, I'm a nurse, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up playing many different sports, and fell in love with ultimate frisbee during college. Now that I'm graduated, I still seek out chances to play competitively, including a women's team that's based out of Salt Lake City. I work as a registered nurse during the day. I'm so grateful for the chance to meet and learn from so many different people at my job. In my spare time, I am working on long distance running and rock-climbing. More than anything, I treasure the time spent with my parents, my siblings, and my nieces and nephews. There's nothing that could replace that joy of family in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always strongly believed in the eternal nature of families. That is the foundation of my spirituality. To me, it is extremely significant that the "great plan of happiness" taught by the Church is centered on being united forever with my immediate family as well as with our infinitely large eternal family. I believe what this Church teaches about Christ, especially His grace. I believe this gospel helps me understand the balance between works and faith when it teaches that the goal is to become like God, not just to qualify for certain rewards in the next life. I believe the Christ enables me with power to progress towards this lofty goal, and has provided a path for forgiveness when I fall short.

How I live my faith

In the near future I'll be leaving my home and family for eighteen months to teach people the gospel in Central America. It will be a huge sacrifice and it's very scary, but it's something I've volunteered to do because I believe that the gospel improves lives, and that there are people out there that are looking for something just like this. One of the things I love about the gospel of Christ is that I get to live my faith every day. Although I am grateful for the opportunity to serve a mission, I know that I don't have to be serving in a foreign country to be serving His purposes. Once a week I help organize a prayer group for the young single members of the Church that live in my area. And every other day of the week, I try to implement the principles we learn about in church to the interactions and decisions I face every day. It's made my life a better thing than I would've made on my own.
