Hi I'm Brittany Breed Borgersen

I'm a singer/songwriter; author/inspirational speaker; actress; and attorney! But, most importantly, I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

I started starving myself when I was 13. I love to perform, but growing up singing, acting, and modeling professionally took a toll on my self-esteem. By the time my dad left, when I was 14, I had a full-blown eating disorder. Satan had me convinced I was NOT enough. When I went to college in LA, anorexia and bulimia were soon joined by alcohol and drug abuse. I desperately wanted to feel accepted, so I partied. I hoped I could be loved, so I let myself be abused physically, emotionally, and sexually for years. One day, I hit rock bottom and, just as soon as I did, a spirit welled inside of me and reminded my of my Savior. He was always there. I had just forgotten Him. I took His hand and He carried me away from that nightmare; and three weeks later I met my husband, Bryce :) He is my happy place! But there were more hard times to be had. While in law school at BYU, my eating disorder careened out of control. The depression was overwhelming. I was cutting and thought about suicide all the time. Satan again had me convinced I was ugly and stupid and broken and it was all my fault. Well, after years of therapy and serving in the temple, here I stand! Yes, my arm is scarred, but I know my Savior understands. He has scars too! He kept His so I'd never forget that He loves me ever again. Today (04/08/16), I have been behavior-free for over 3 years and, not to mention, 7 years sober! I am now working on my music career and am writing a book about how the atonement saved my life.

Why I am a Mormon

"If thou art called to pass through tribulation;...if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good. The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he? Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever." (D&C 122:5-9)

How I live my faith

I am so grateful for everything I've been through. I wouldn't change my past for anything in the world. All those years of excruciating pain are my pearls! Those are the years I got to know my Savior personally. Those are the years that have made possible my happiness today. I know my Savior died for me and I know He understands the pain I have specifically gone through. He plucked me out of the depths of hell and showed me the light, and for that I am eternally grateful. How could I be so obviously saved by the Lord despite all the mistakes that I've made and not dedicate my life to Him? After all, He dedicated His life to me! Although to this day, I still fight depression, I try with all my heart to serve the Lord. I served as an ordinance worker in the temple for 5 years and have had callings with the Primary children and Young Women! Right now, I am in the Young Women's Presidency. I adore watching how the Lord turned all my pain into beauty: a means to help these beautiful daughters of God. It all had a purpose! Although I graduated from law school and have been practicing here and there, I spend most of my time working on my music and my book. I hope to release a gospel-themed album soon! Music should be from the heart, and the Lord...He is mine. (Listen here: www.soundcloud.com/brittbb) Also, I am finishing up my book! It's auto-biographical in nature, but it also teaches a number of LDS/Christian gospel principles as I have learned them throughout my life - mainly the concept that we all are asked to drink "bitter cups" in our lives, just as our Savior drank the OH SO bitter cup of the atonement. Will we show our Savior that we are grateful He finished every last drop by gladly drinking the much smaller bitter cups that are placed in front of us? Will we find the strength - as our Lord did - to endure the suffering until it is finished? For you, Lord? Yes!
