Hi I'm Brooke

I'm a grad student. I'm liberal. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the mountains of eastern Tennessee. I love traveling and have lived in the Philippines, Kenya, and Zambia. I was a missionary for the Mormon church in Southern California. I am a proud liberal Mormon working in public health in inner city areas of the urban South.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon, but I have stayed in the Church because of the peace I feel through the gospel. The gospel gives me perspective to cope with the challenges of life. I love the sense of community I feel with my congregation and with the Church as a whole.

How I live my faith

In my congregation, I am in charge of planning the social activities. I enjoy helping people enjoy their lives a little more. I also have several women in the ward that I watch over. They have become some of my closest friends & I love talking with them. I try to be an example of Christ's love and acceptance with everyone I meet.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Mormons are not required to serve a mission. I choose to serve a mission because I wanted to share the happiness I have received from having the gospel in my life. I believe my mission was one the most influential experiences of my life & helped me become the person I am today.   Show more Show less
