Hi I'm Brenda

I've lived on America's East Coast, West Coast, in the Midwest and I've lived Overseas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a business finance degree, four kids who keep me busy and a husband who is an international attorney. Each morning I awaken with energy for the new day as well as an appreciation for what this new day means to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it helps me accomplish the most important goals in my life.

How I live my faith

I help organize service projects throughout the area. From small ones that included as few as eight volunteers at America's Grow A Row to large ones that include thousands of volunteers who assisted others in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. I do this so that needy folks near me are better able to receive the help that they need. Since I have four active children (three of whom are teenagers), I have always volunteered in classrooms, on sports teams and at scouts. I've taught Sunday School and piano lessons. As busy as I am, family always comes first.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon helps me find "family" no matter where in the world I have lived. My husband is an international attorney so we have moved to interesting places inside and outside of America. The first thing I do upon hearing that we'll be transfered to a new city is to contact the Church. Congregations can be found throughout the world. I immediately find people with similar values who welcome me to their city. These same people, although strangers initially, soon become my family and provide the friendship and support that my children need to make that important transition to a new school, a new sports team, a new scout troop, a new community orchestra, etc. Show more Show less
