Hi I'm Brooke

I am proud to be an american, I love backpacking, and someday I'll finish college.

About Me

I come from a pretty big family.. I am the oldest of my dad's five children and I'm the second oldest of my mom's nine:) I spent the first 71/2 years living with my mom and then my dad got custody of me until I turned 18. I have been neglected, abused, and abandoned. Even though it was not peaches and cream growing up..I wouldn't have changed one little thing that happened. I let the struggles refine me instead of letting them define me. The only way I've come to this conclusion is because of Christ and living His gospel. No matter what your circumstances.. Christ and His teaching can heal you. I know because He has healed me and He continues to. There are so many things that I love! People, the outdoors, painting(even though I'm not very good:)), MUSIC: which includes singing, guitar, the uke, and the piano. There is so much good to experience and to be a part of..I like to get in there..life's too short to hold back!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents took me to church at a young age but as I grew older I chose to go. There was something about how it made me feel and how ppl treated me. I felt loved and that I had some worth..even though I didn't understand it completely. I loved being there and learning even if the rest of my family didn't make it. I learned that it is important to pray to God and to read the scriptures..as I did this through out my childhood and teenage years...it helped me recognize good and gave me the strength and courage to be good. I am mormon not just because it's tradition in my family or because I live in utah and want to do what everybody else is doing....I am mormon because I have prayed and asked God if the principles I've learned are true and He has answered me. I feel peace and goodness inside when I ask and I take that as my answer from heaven. God still speaks to His children, because He loves us.

How I live my faith

By genuinely getting to know people, their strengths, talents, likes, ect. I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ and love my neighbors. My love for God is above everything and I show my love for Him by living the gospel of His son Jesus Christ. I believe that faith is a gift from God and necessary to live a happy and successful life. I keep the commandments because it keeps my faith strong. But of course I ain't poifect so...ya I have to repent everyday!:) I am committed to serve God till the end and to show my commitment I've made promises with God like baptism. As I remember that promise, it helps me to keep going and to not give up! There are so many things that God has given to help us and I do my best to use those tools everyday.
