Hi I'm Brooklyn

I am a outdoor enthusiast and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I see myself as someone who seeks challenge. Knowing that I'm moving forward and growing in new ways is important to me. I always want to know I'm living an exciting life and I strive to use what God has blessed me with to serve others My recent passion is outdoor recreation. Challenging outdoor activities have taught me A LOT about character development and exercising faith in both God and my personal abilities. I actually received my Bachelors degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho in Recreation Management in 2010. Hiking a rigorous trail (or bushwhacking a new one) in extreme survival conditions or mountain biking rough terrain towards my end goal makes me feel alive. Not only do these kind of hobbies allow me to push my boundaries, but being in nature allows me to connect with God in a powerful way. Observing and interaction with His beautiful creations makes me to feel closer to my Heavenly Father, and better understand the plan of happiness he has provided through My Savior Jesus Christ. I love the outdoors! I am just an young single female adult, trying to make the best of life. I am known to be spontaneous, I love being creative and trying new things. I have a free way of thinking. I belief in optimism, because a positive way of thinking helps me do the impossible. I am funny, genuine, down to earth and I work hard towards my goals Other interests are stain glass art, cycling, music and traveling. My next BIG bucket list item is to cycle the Pacific Coast Line

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the restored gospel of Jesus Christ has given me the greatest joy in my life. I feel God 's love for me as I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. There was a time in my life where I seriously wanted to know if what I'd been taught all my life was really true. I was raised in a Latter-Day Saint home. My family and ancestors have all been faithful Latter-Day Saints. I was 14 years old when I wanted to know if Joseph Smith really did see God and Jesus Christ and I wanted to know if the Book of Mormon really is the word of God. I couldn't rely on my parents faith and conviction any longer, I had to know for myself. I attended a week long church youth camp called Especially For Youth. This week changed the course of my life. While there my desire to know for myself grew even stronger. On my own, I began to read the scriptures in greatness, my prayers became more heartfelt as well. This is when my testimony of these things began to start. I took the teachings of the Book of Mormon and really took a hard look at them. I then tested those teachings by living them in my own life. What I found, by this experiment you could say, was that I was happier when I followed its principles. The teachings of the Book of Mormon gave me a greater understanding of God's love for his children. Developing my belief in it was a simple process; I read with a real sincere desire to know if it was from God, I applied the teachings to my own life, and I prayed with faith in Jesus Christ. It was in my prayers that I received answers. It came through the fruits of the spirit, sweet feelings of love, peace and gratitude. Words cannot describe this personal experience I had with God through prayer. Since this awakening in my soul, I have known without a shadow of a doubt that all the teaching from my church are true. For the teachings truly testify of Christ. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I love to read it, it brings me closer to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

One thing I love about my church is I have opportunities to serve in the community. Currently I am serving on a Service Committee. I work with others to plan fun service activities for people to participate in. I strive to live my faith by giving Christlike love to others, and one way to do this is to serve them.
