Hi I'm Brenda Richards

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Brenda. I am a mother of 5, a grandmother of 19 and a wife of 1. I love to sew, quilt, bake, read, travel and spend time outdoors. However, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family, and yes, I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, but the time came when I had to decide for myself if that was the life I wanted. This happened during my teenage and young adult years when I came to know the Savior and felt that being Mormon helped me to live His teachings. I love the Savior and try each day to emulate His life in the things I do. I also know that He loves me and this gives me the confidence to accomplish many things, and the desire to be a little better each day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I have spent most of my life serving the youth of our Church. This means I have provided dances, programs, firesides, conferences, classes, activities and counseling for many youth between the ages of 12 and 18. I have also taught seminary for many years. This is an early morning class for high school students where they learn more about the scriptures and how to follow the teachings of the Savior each day before they start school. I believe the youth of the nation are our future and I love molding the future in this way.
