Hi I'm Brigitte

I became a Mormon in 1996. I used to attend the Catholic Church - but something was missing - I have a strong - simple - testimony

About Me

Born and raised in Winnemucca Nevada - I love to be outside, 4 wheeling, hunting, photography, taking long rides in the country. I also love going to big cities. I working in Electrical Distribution. I have one son in the Navy.

Why I am a Mormon

I had decided to have the 'Missionaries' come and visit me after I saw the San Diego Temple being built. It was the most beautiful building I had ever seen, and I knew I wanted to go and be part of whatever was going on inside. My ex-husband was in the Navy and we were transferred to Connecticut - and I actually forgot about that feeling I had. I tried many different churches.. Many.. Something was missing. After moving back home to Nevada - I started with the lessons. It took me 4 'sets' of Missionaries. I had alot of questions. I was baptized because I believed in the Book of Mormon - along with the Holy Bible as the word of God. I didn't have a doubt.. this is what I had been missing. I received my temple recommend (which is where i can go into and do work inside the temple) a year later - I traveled to San Diego CA - and it was the most incredible experience ever! I have been to over 20+ temples. My testimony (why I believe) is Strong. Plain. and Simple. God Lives. Jesus Died for our sins. Joseph Smith had asked for a true church (which is what we all do - at one time or another) and was given revelation for the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I believe in Family. Service. Sacrifice. I love the Proclamation to the Family (20 years ago written for the Church) is true now as it was back then. It is so needed in this day and age. I believe in helping when and where I can.I love having the gift of the Holy Ghost so that I know who needs help - and I can, receive revelation for my life. I also have a huge testimony for tithing (10% of wages given to the Church) -I believe that President Monson is a Prophet - and I know that all of our leaders have been called by God to lead and guide us in these latter days. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I believe in keeping the Sabbath Day Holy. I try and attend the temple as much as possible, with my last promise to be at least once a month (2 1/2 hours one way) I try to be of service to those who may need it - as much as possible.
