Hi I'm Brenda Chandler

I was born and raised in Utah. I love to teach and do Colorguard. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite food is Chinese, I especially love Panda Express. I love the movie Little Rascals. I love to go camping, biking, hiking. My favorite activities are four wheeling and skiing. I have a little puppy named Minnie, she is a mini pinscher chihuahua mix. I am the youngest and only girl in my family, I have three older brothers. My favorite hobby is Colorguard. I have been doing Colorguard for about six years. I have completed two seasons with a Drum Corps known as Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps. For this past 2012 Fall season I have taught at a High School, with lots of kids. I love being able to teach people. I am a college student in Utah and I am majoring in Elementary Education. When I graduate I would like to teach 2nd grade.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Gospel is true. As I have been going through my life I have met a lot of different people where their was always something different about them... they didn't seem truly happy. I have seen the Gospel bring true light and happiness to people. I have seen the hand of the lord in my life, he blesses me everyday for living his gospel and following his commandments. I know that my Father in Heaven is aware of who I am and he loves me. When I am praying to my Heavenly Father I know he is listening. I know that Christ died on the cross for me and my sins. I know that through the Atonement of Christ that I can repent of my sins and be forgiven. I know that Joseph Smith is a true Prophet. I know that he resorted the Gospel to this earth. I know that President Monson is the true and living Prophet for us today. I know that he is the mouth piece of god for us and that the words/ commandments that he speaks are true and will bless our lives. I love this Gospel, I am who I am because of it. It has directed me to where I am today.

How I live my faith

I have had many different callings in the church. My most recent ones were activities committee and sister weekday committee. In the activities committee we planned the big ward activities for each month. I loved this calling because it taught me a lot about what people love to do, how to organize/plan big events and how to delegate to other people when you need help. In the sister weekday committee we also would plan events for all the sisters in the ward. I love having this calling because I learned to really love each of the sisters in the ward. Having this calling made me want to serve each of the sisters with all of my heart.
