Hi I'm Leah Brannen

I'm a Mormon. I was born in Utah, grew up in Kingsport Tennessee. I work with my husband in our Real Estate business.

About Me

I graduated from college with a BA in International Relations. I worked for a doctor's office for many years and also a medical billing company. I am divorced and have since remarried. I have 2 step-children who we raised from the ages of 7 and 5. I was able to be a stay at home mom but since my children have grown, I now work with my husband in our Real Estate business. I like to play the piano and organ and I enjoy singing. I like to read all kinds of books, mostly fiction. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and I enjoy travelling.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I have continued to be an active member of the church because of the family values and Christlike attributes that the church teaches. I have read the Book of Mormon numerous times and I know that the book is true. God loves all His children. He wouldn't just want a small amount of people to know about His teachings. Joseph Smith restored the church just like it was in the primitive church. His example of love and sacrifice is a great example to all of us. Christ is the corner stone of our religion. Through His atonement we can receive a remission of sin and return to live with our Heavenly Father. The values that the church teaches keeps me grounded in a world where right is wrong and wrong is right.

How I live my faith

Currently I serve in the women's organization of the church. I help coordinate the teachers for our classes and I help with the music. I play the organ in our main meeting of church and I am often asked to accompany people for special music. I have played the piano for many funerals and weddings and other occasions. I have worked with the youth and the young children. I try to be a good neighbor and do service for others in the community. I help my sister perform library shows for children of all ages. I have taught people how to play the piano and the organ. At schools I have help children learn to read. I try to keep a good work ethic and set a good example to those around me.
