Hi I'm Brenda Barney

I'm from Huehuetenango, Guatemala! i have been in USA for almost 5 years. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi i was born in Guatemala and moved to AZ 5 years ago. I wasn't member of the church when i came but i got baptized 4 months after i arrived here. When I first told my parents they were OK with it but my siblings were not. At the beginning it was really hard but I knew that if I was making the right choice Heavenly Father will take care of the rest and that's exactly what happened! I am a caregiver for elderly and enjoy being able to help them with their needs. I don't have any kids yet, we have lost four pregnancies and have not being bless with keeping one yet but I know they will come since that is one of Father's promises to us if we are faithful and keep his commandments.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a brother who died when he was 19, it was the hardest thing our family had gone through. I thought i was never gonna see my brother again and my heart was broken to know that. When I was first introduced to the church i wasn't very interested until one day the missionaries share with me the plan of happiness Heavenly Father had created for us! The opportunity to be with my family FOREVER!!! I got baptized not because people told me how good the church was and how happy i could be in it but because I prayed and my father in Heaven answered me, he told me by the spirit that I was making the right decision, He told me that this was the true church and that yes I will have the chance to be together with my family forever and that I'll see my brother again! I love my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ and that's why I'm following this gospel, the true gospel!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures, praying, going to church, going to the temple, having fun with my family! I have a calling in the church to help and serve with the sisters 18 years and older, i love to serve them! Our calling is to help each other to make our faith grow and to prepare for the future, to be self-reliant and to be happy!
