Hi I'm BrookLyn

Russia Rostov-na-Donu Mission. Fanatic of badminton, reading, baking, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!

About Me

I'm number 4 of 6 kids and my favorite thing to do is be with my family!!!! I love to be around people and I LOVE to laugh! I love volleyball, interior design, drawing, reading, and being a friend! I'm 15, I have blonde hair and blue eyes and my favorite color is green! My family is the best in the world and I would be a totally different person if one of them was missing. I live in Gilbert, AZ and LOVE IT! I love to be around my 49 cousins because they are all so incredibly amazing! I love the church and I love being a part of something that I KNOW is true!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known that the church is true! The moment when I first felt the Holy Ghost the strongest was when we were on a hike and we had a testimony meeting with our ward. I was a new Beehive and I was shy so I did not bear my testimony. I was feeling kind of guilty, but when we sang the closing hymn, (I think it was We Thank Thee O God for a Prophet) I felt unconditional peace so much that I couldn't sing anymore. When I feel the Holy Ghost, I make sure to write it down in my journal because Satan is going to try to make you forget it. I KNOW that the church is true. I have NO doubt about any part of it and I know that when we live the commandments and try our hardest to be happy no matter what happens, life will be SO much easier. Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us and when we do what's right, He will lead us to do good, and better, and best. I love my older brother, Jesus Christ, and I know that he loves us ALWAYS. I know that when Christ died for us, each of our names and faces ran through his head as he suffered...we, his younger siblings. I love him for that and I LOVE the gospel!

How I live my faith

I am the 2nd Counselor in the Mia Maids (14-16 year old girls) class. I love our ward because we all love each other and include each other in on everything. I want to someday serve a mission in ( like I've always said ) Iceland, Spanish speaking! I grew up with a family that totally supports going on missions and that has gotten me SO excited for when I turn 21!!! I love living the gospel and I can't wait to share that with others in Iceland (

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

From personal experience, I have felt the Holy Ghost so much when I need comforting. I love that feeling of warmth and you just realize that everything is going to be okay! The Holy Ghost confirms that and it helps you to more forward in life. Show more Show less
