Hi I'm Brook

I am a student for physical therapy school. I am from Oregon. I like to run. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a phyiscal therapy student. I just returned from serving a mission in Baton Rouge Louisiana. I love the beach and doing outdoor things. I am a runner and love the thrill of skydiving. I love reading and spending time with my family. I am fascinated with the complexity and the simplicity of the human body. I love to have fun and live life to its fullest. I love animals. I am a sister, a daughter, and a friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it makes me a good person. It helps me understand who I am as a daughter of God and that I have divine potential. I am Mormon because I have learned more about my relationship with Christ and how to have a personal one. I am Mormon because I have felt the Atonement in my life and I know I can be forgiven. I am Mormon because it is all about service, charity, love, faith, hope etc... The things Mormon teach is all about Christ and about good. The big question is why wouldn't I be Mormon?!? I know this goespel is true through experience and through the Holy Ghost. I know Jesus Christ lives and that He loves each and everyone of us. I know this church is true because I have prayed and got an answer. This goespel is all good. Again I pose the question... Why wouldn't I be Mormon?

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by doing what Jesus would do. I visit the sick. I smile. I don't judge. I love. I serve. I try my best everyday to make this world a better world. I strive everyday to become more like Jesus.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Brook
Mormons live just like everyone else. We love people, have jobs, go to school. Education is really encouraged. Doing good is what we are about. We follow the example of Jesus Christ. That is what our lifestyle is like. We live life with faith and hope in Christ. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Brook
Mormon women are amazing, just like other women of other faiths. We are no different than other women. We are encouraged to get an education. We are encouraged to raise a stong faithful family. I love to go have fun and I love school. We believe in equality of men and women. We just have different roles in life, which in many cases are shared. Like in my case. My mom and dad both have graduate degrees and both work outside the home. The are as involved in our lives as they can be. We aren't perfect, but my mom and dad have specific roles but help one another out and also share roles when needed. Mormon women may seem different, but we just follow the expample of Jesus Christ and do our best. Not super women, just love Christ. Show more Show less
