Hi I'm Brett M. Judd

I am a social worker, a business coach, a writer, a father, married to the most amazing girl on earth, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I have worked with troubled kids, fostered kids and adopted one, was a felony probation officer for 10 years, taught young college student how to be great social workers, and now help business owners realize their full potential and develop the mindset they need for success. I love people and seeing them excel. In 1999, I went to training inside a prison. It was incredible! I saw that anyone can change. All of us have potential and purpose - if we chose to take it. SInce then I have worked to help others create change and rise above their current situation, even when they might be rising higher then I am. I love to write and to share in blogs, speaking events, and in books. Creating was for others to feel alive and have hope is incredibly important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was young, my parents relationship fell apart. Their divorce ruptured our family. It rocked my world for a while and I wasn't sure what I believed. I then found myself in an apartment at BYU with 3 guys I did not know. I had a choice of taking a voice scholarship at our local University, or taking one at BYU. Even amid the turmoil and chaos around me I knew I needed to go to BYU and I had to take the room in the apartment I did. The guys in the only other apartment were kicked out of school. I realized that God had directed me to be with the roomates I had who ultimately helped me to decide I was to serve a mission. On my mission, I saw and experienced many things that can only be explained through the power of God. I also realized that there is no other religion that teaches the truth and is led by living prophets. That alone is enough to be a Mormon. It guides my life, and gives me joy.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not a way of life, it is life, It is the basis for everything that I do, whether it is writing, counseling, speaking, or play. Being a Mormon is not what you do as much as it is who you are. Many who I work with have asked me why I am "different" and I tell them that I believe that each of us were here for a purpose and to fulfil a greater work. That is my religion. That is my faith. I have worked in callings in the church that directly related to youth for many years. I had a leader tell me that I was a "Boys Man". I guess that's right. I love working with scouts and young men and helping them see their full potential and that whatever this life those at them is conquerable if they remain true to the faith in God and his plan.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Brett M. Judd
I have known independents, republicans, democrats, and other "party's" in the church. All are passionate about the gospel and politics. I am very independent and feel that to vote principle and not party is more important than affiliation. Show more Show less
