Hi I'm Brielle Hatch

I grew up in Arizona. I'm a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah although I grew up in Arizona, so I'm trying to adjust to the weather here where apparently there's these mysterious things called seasons. I recently graduated from high school with an appetite for adventure and strong desire to learn as much as I possibly can. If traveling was free, you'd probably never see me again.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and was raised with a family that was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. At the age of 8 I decided to be baptized and continue to grow in my faith and have come to love this gospel and all that it teaches. I have a firm knowledge and affirmation of the truths of this gospel and its leaders, both past and present. Throughout my life, I have had experiences that have especially made me grateful for the power of faith and prayer. One such experience happened my freshman year of high school. I was studying in a prestigious music conservatory for piano with a wonderful professor. It was my intent to become a successful piano performer and have music be the focus of my life. However, my professor broke the news to me that in order to continue at the level I was at, I would have to be homeschooled so I could focus solely on music. My heart was torn because I knew I had other talents I needed to develop but my passion was music. Through fervent study of the scriptures and prayer, and a tremendous amount of faith, I realized that the talents I would develop in high school were ones that would allow me to help countless others throughout my life and was what I was supposed to do. So I lost my piano future but gained personal revelation and knowledge that my decision came directly from God and I am eternally grateful for that. I am still developing those talents that allow me to be an instrument in God's hands and strive to better myself every day and draw closer to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

For many years I served as the pianist for my church and enjoyed expressing myself through music. I also was able to visit ladies from church that lived in my area once a month and have conversations with them about their lives, what they have been up to, and messages about the church. This way I was able to offer service to them whenever they may need it.
