Sister Jean B. Bingham

Relief Society General President



Jean B. Bingham was born in Utah and grew up in Texas, Minnesota, and New Jersey, USA. She met her husband, Bruce B. Bingham, at Brigham Young University. They were married in 1972 in the Provo Utah Temple, raised their two daughters in Illinois, have been foster parents to many children and youth, and are delighted as they now welcome grandchildren to the family.

Prior to her call as Relief Society General President, Sister Bingham served as First Counselor in the Primary General Presidency and member of the Primary General Board. Her previous callings include serving in ward and stake Primary, Young Women, and Relief Society organizations, and she particularly treasures her time spent teaching early-morning seminary. Sister Bingham received a master’s degree in teaching from National-Louis University and has taught English as a second language to immigrants and refugees.

Through all of her life experiences, Sister Bingham has sought to be guided by the counsel in Proverbs 3:5–6: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
