Biography

Brandie Miguel attended Ricks College, where she joined the Church and received her associate’s degree in general studies. After finishing her associate’s degree, Brandie served a full-time mission in Leeds, England. Upon returning from her mission, she finished her education at BYU where she was awarded a bachelor’s degree in family, home and social science. Brandie’s career path has led her to many amazing experiences from San Francisco to Greenwich, Connecticut, and a few interesting stops in between on her way back to Rexburg, Idaho where she now works as the online programs coordinator for BYU-Idaho. Brandie loves to travel, as time permits, and has enjoyed every opportunity to serve in the many church callings she has held in the Primary, Young Women and Relief Society. Her very favorite thing is to share her time and talents in building the kingdom of God.

Class Outline

As members of the church, we are counseled to obtain as much education as we are able. For many, obtaining an education requires much sacrifice. There are others that do not have access to an education. Even so, there are some that started an education but were unable to finish due to circumstances or other obligations. BYU-Idaho offers many online options that can help you to finish the education you started or fulfill your dream of obtaining an education you never thought you would be able to achieve. Here are some inspirational and motivational words to ponder regarding the importance of an education.
