Hi I'm Brenda

I grew up in Florida and after moving with the military for 16 years I've settled back into my hometown. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Northern Florida. I'm the mother of five. I love spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by loving parents who taught their children good morals and principals. However, as I grew up I made choices that compromised my values. As I began to question those decisions, and the direction I wanted to take from that point on, the gospel had all the answers. It brings me peace and comfort during trials and helps me see the joy in everyday living. It has filled my life with a love I never knew was possible. I know my Father in Heaven loves me and that my Savior lives. That this is his work and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be part of it.

How I live my faith

I organize activities for the women in our area to both teach new skills and to allow them to enjoy the company of other women. I visit some of the elderly women of the church regularly and assist in taking them to appointments when needed. I try to serve others by volunteering in the comunity. I am involved in my childrens activities as well as my neices and nephews who I care for while their parents work.
