Spread the love

Each night I can say goodbye to the day and start new the next day. 2019 I’m saying goodbye to that year and starting a new one in 2020. I want to be better each day no matter the day or year. 

I do feel something very special for the year 2020. I am going to make it great! 2019 was the biggest growing year of my life for me spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. It had many experiences on how to have better thoughts and strive to be more Christ-like. I am more aware of the person I want to become.

For 2020 I want to live with my heart centered on the gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to share my love I have for him with others. I would like to be a tender example. I don’t want to feel like I can change anyone but love others for who they are and see them become as they can become.

I love being a mom more than anything. Ronen and Ryen are so wise and tender-hearted. I hope this year I can be a person that they admire and know I am always trying to be my best. I love all of the moments with them.

I want to see the world. I want to see the world and it’s goodness. I believe people are all trying to do their best. I am happy for everyone trying to become the best versions of themselves.

I think the best version of myself is being authentic and true to myself and creating useful thoughts and actions. I am wanting to grow a little taller in those thoughts and actions by raising them to be better. We can all make goals for better health or new skills. I want more skills to manage my mental health. I know I can be happier that way. 

I see a more healthier inner and outer Bri in 2020. I can see Bri making mistakes but becoming better because of them. I see her following the savior and the light of Christ to shine more brightly in her life. I don’t want to follow or be of the world. I don’t desire the ways of the world but the ways of God. For the past 365 days I have wrote down spiritually and mentally growing experiences. They have renewed me and repaired my heart. As I have focused on Jesus Christ and his teachings for myself I have grown to better my writing. 

This past year has brought loss of employment, all of our “stuff”, and family dilemmas, yet I have never felt more blessed. I feel the power of Christ’s love and comfort in my everyday. I will move these wonderful blessings into this new year and gain more. 

2020 will be a grand, magnificent year and I already choose to love it. I choose to love my Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. They are with me through my growing experiences and stages. What a wonderful blessing to know they are with me today, this year, and forever. 

“Your future is as bright as your faith.” -Thomas S. Monson

I believe we can make goals or strive to better at anytime of the year. With this new year I want to take each day to become a little better and never stop trying. It will be magnificent with Jesus Christ as my focus, enjoying motherhood, experiencing more with my writing, and loving my exercise each day. I don’t ever want to forget how blessed I was in 2019 and the blessings that will come in 2020. 

Happy Day, Happy Past Year, Happy New Year

Matthew 5:16

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

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.
