Spread the love


I hope you are able to check out this years Easter video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Take time to #HearHim. 

I love this time of year! I love celebrating Easter! It is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For me, I feel like it’s a time to strive to be better. To feel the His love more in my life, to #HearHim. 

Spring is a time for growth and renewal and I love that the season and Easter holiday are similar in meaning to me. 

My favorite story in The Book of Mormon is in 3 Nephi chapter 17. Jesus Christ was resurrected and visited the Nephites. When he was visiting He shared His gospel and the truthfulness of it. What stood out to me in the scriptures was the love and compassion He had for the people, especially the children. 

3 Nephi 17:21 

“And when he had said these words, he wept, and the multitude bare record of it, and he took the children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them.

This verse is powerful to me. We are all children of Heavenly Father. He desires us to follow His son, Jesus Christ and come back into their presence. 

This season is a great time to reflect, repent, and renew. I love how symbolic this season is to me. I love what I celebrate and the brightness that this season brings to my heart. 

How do you celebrate this time of year?

Much love,

My name is Brianna Marshall. I was born in Dayton, Ohio into a Air Force family. We moved to Colorado Springs, CO when I was 5 years old and lived there till I moved off to College to Orem, Utah in 2007. I was raised into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm still actively practicing the same faith today. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelors in Communications. I was married to my husband Dom in 2010 in the San Diego Temple. Dom and I have two children, one a boy, named Ronen, and a girl, named Ryen. I have been in and out of teaching physical fitness for over 10 years. I love to run and weight lift most days of the week. I also love to do yoga at night to calm me down before bed. I have always had a love for baked goods. My mom made a great dessert every Sunday and made them upon request growing up. I have always been really well at expressing my thoughts and feelings. I love to express a lot of my spiritual feelings with friends and family. As a young girl, I worked really hard to have a great relationship with my Father in Heaven. I have felt His presence from the time I was 8 and currently still feel his love and desire for me to become closer to Him. I desire to be a missionary as well as help others understand His love for all of His children. I find that being friendly, understanding and being compassionate to everyone is the best example of His son, Jesus Christ. I strive to follow His teachings. I also stumble with all of it. I'm so grateful for the atonement and repentance when I'm in need of change of heart and a compassionate spirit. I find life to be so beautiful and I'm grateful everyday for the experiences I have. I am a wife, mother, daughter of God, writer, runner, baker, and an imperfect being striving to be the best me.
