Hi I'm Brooke

I am happily married and a mother of 4 boys. I am a stay at home mom, and I love to learn and play with my kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a large family of 9 children. I have a twin sister. I love music, especially singing in a choir. I really enjoy chatting and being social with my friends. I also love to dance and play card games. I enjoy going places and being silly with my kids. They make me laugh. I am happiest when I can be outdoors, enjoying our beautiful world. My number one dream, since I was a child, was to be a mother. I am blessed that my dream has come true with 4 very active and bright boys. My goals in life are centered around raising them to be 4 great men, and providing love for them and my sweet husband. My husband is my dearest and most cherished friend. I am all about family!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but everyone has to make their own decision what to believe and who to be. I knew my family loved me, but I was often compared to others that I thought were more talented than I. I never felt like I was good at school or speeking, and I often doubted if I had talents at all. It is because of my knowledge of God and His love for me that I have confidence to do all that I do. I know I can do hard things, and have His help doing them. I know that Heavenly Father has given me presious talents to share with others, and He has a plan for me to make a difference in this world, and especially in my family. Just like I have qualities like my Dad, I also have qualities of my Heavenly Father. I know if nothing else, I can make a difference by giving my love to others. As I have faced challenges and heartache in my life, I have been blessed to realize Heavenly Father has helped me in many ways, and made me a stronger and a better person. He has blessed me with family and friends to help me, but most importantly, I have personally felt my Saviors unconditional love for me. I know He wants me to be happy, and as I make good choices, and choose to have self discipline, I am able to enjoy a better life and true happiness, where I can be at peace with myself and others. I know my Savior loves me even when I make mistakes, and I find hope in my life, and a reason to keep trying. Knowing who I am and why I am here on earth, and that God will help me, gives me strength on the hardest and loneliest days. Prayer and reading the scriptures are always a comfort to me.

How I live my faith

I know I am special and unique, even though it may seem that I am just a stay at home mom of 4 boys. It is a big deal to me. This job, I have chosen, can be redundant and seemingly endless and unawarding. There are some days when I don't feel like I make any difference in this world, but then I remember the smiles of my 4 kids, my husband, my friends, and even the lady I smiled at in the grocery store. It is then that I remember that I am spreading love and joy, one smile at a time. I make it my goal to try to love people as Jesus did, when he was on the earth. He made no judgments, and never talked bad about anyone. He helped people. He taught people. He cherrished children. He healed the broken heart. He lived a simple life, but had the greatest impact of all. It brings me joy to make others feel special, as He makes me feel special. That is what He asks of us, and that is what I want to do my whole life long. In my church, I am a coordinator, in charge of making sure that women of all ages and backgrounds in my neighborhood, are watched after, by visiting and teaching them often and checking on them. I love serving and getting to know them. They bless my life, often more than I bless theirs. They have become my friends. As I visit these women, I am reminded that Heavenly Father loves all of us, and has made each of us unique so that we can learn from each other. I am thankful for the things that I learn as I serve the women in my community and as I serve my family.
