Hi I'm Brigitte

I was an LPN and had gotten to be a stay at home Mom. Now I work for a financial institution. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family immigrated to the United States of America when I was a very young child from Germany. We were not members of this church but were Lutherans at that time. Our family lived in California and I remember going to church with my grandmother who lived with us and came over from Germany with our family. One day, when I was 9 years old, LDS missionaries knocked on our door and taught my family the gospel. We listened to them as well as missionaries from some other churches at the same time . We became members of this church when I was nearing 10 years old. I have enjoyed raising a family of 3 children who I love deeply. Sadly the marriage didn't last and I became a divorced woman after the children had all left home and gone on to their adult lives. There is much that I am interested in from gardening, arts and crafts to computers and people who I love and care for.

Why I am a Mormon

From the time our family joined the church when I was young, I have been a member and have enjoyed the blessings of the Lord helping me in my life through the various challenges that have come my way. God didn't say you wouldn't have problems, just promised that He would help us through them, and I have experienced that help. I have experienced many of the tender mercies of the Lord as a single woman and I have been blessed to not feel alone. I have been blessed with a job in a financial institution that sustains me. I've been blessed with 6 grandchildren. The gospel with it's blessings of the Holy Ghost and getting closer to my Savior Jesus Christ add such a richness to my life that I am well fed and don't need to languish thirsty or hungry!

How I live my faith

I try to serve well in whatever it is I'm asked to do and to be a good friend to those around me. I am happy serving as the church building librarian and finding ways to make the materials there useful to the teachers and individuals who need and could benefit from them. I enjoy people and love to get to know them.
