Hi I'm Brooke

I'm a lover of life. I like film, traveling, and learning. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young professional in the New England area. I love to seek out the best things in life with friends and family. I enjoy being creative and seeing others express their creativity as well.

Why I am a Mormon

God, since the beginning of time, has given us knowledge about Him and His plan for us here on earth. He has chosen prophets to guide us and to help us know what we should do. They teach us more about Jesus Christ and how through Him we can return to our Father in Heaven. As I have read the words of the prophets in scripture, or heard their words today, I feel in my heart and mind their teachings are true. In a confusing world, the gospel makes sense and brings me peace. I know most of my confidence and fulfillment in life comes from knowing God still speaks to man and that He cares for me individually. All of us at times feel lost, but Heavenly Father sent His Son to save all of us. I have felt Christ’s love for me and for all of God’s children as I try to serve others as He would. Through Jesus Christ, I know all of us will live again. I know as I come unto Him and obey His commandments, I feel more happiness than by any other way.

How I live my faith

Every decision I make in my life reflects my faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Whether it's attending church every week or being honest in a conversation with others, I try to live my life as an example of Jesus Christ, as a Mormon.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Brooke
Not all of Mormons are required to serve a mission. Many chose to serve one because they want to share what they love and believe with others. I decided to serve a mission because I had a strong feeling inside me that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's true church here on the earth and I wanted others to feel the happiness and joy I experience. Through a modern prophet, one that receives revelation for mankind, we know that all worthy young men should serve a mission to build the Lord's kingdom. To me that means that every young man in the church has a responsibility to share with the world truth and to go out and make the world a better place. Some ask why women are not commanded? Women are encouraged to serve a mission if they wish, but it is not commanded. Heavenly Father has made it clear that men and women have different roles in life. Woman are just as capable, and just as needed in building up the kingdom of God. Serving a mission was the best decision of my life. It was the happiest time of my life. There was people I met that I can not imagine my life without having met them. There were people that needed me, and people I needed. I am sure that being a sister missionary, I touched others lives that perhaps a man couldn't reach in the same way (and vice versa). I am so grateful for this program in the church. It changed my life. Show more Show less

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Brooke
First, you have to learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Luckily, it's not very hard. There are 50,000 or more missionaries around the world that volunteer to teach you or answer any question anyone might have. Second, you have to pray about what you learned. Heavenly Father loves all of His children, and through the Holy Ghost, we can learn the truth of all things. Third, and lastly, you need to act on the answer you receive from your prayers. By living the commandments, and preparing to enter into a promise with God to be baptized, one can really start to know it's true. After you begin following the commandments, and you are ready to promise to follow them for the rest of your life, you can be baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
