Hi I'm Brooke Adams

I'm a wife and a mother and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to my husband for 7 years. He finished a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education in 2012 and he is now teaching junior high and elementary band and general music. We have 2 children, both boys who are the just that, boys. I love that I can be home so much with them and be able to watch them grow and learn. I was working full time before we had children, but now I have a part time job while my kids are at preschool and I am taking classes at the local community college so that after my kids are grown up and in school, I will be able to have some qualifications for a job.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church so I don't know anything different, but that's ok with me because I know that this is the true church and I have never felt like I needed to search other places. There is such peace that you have from being a member of this church. There is also so much unity in the church as well and the people I meet and associate with. The thing I love most though is that if we keep the commandments and remember to obey the covenants that we make, then our families will be together forever. I know that this is true and that's part of why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the simple things in our home. I am not the best at it, I will admit, but we say our prayers everyday and read scriptures together as a family. It's not easy to get a 2 year old to sit and listen to a lesson or sit still during scripture time, but I know it's important to do that. We do family activities together at least once a week and any time that I can, I try to explain the gospel to my son more and more. My husband is amazing at helping me and he has so much knowledge that I want to learn too. Our Sundays are for going to church and maybe doing our home and visiting teaching. I have been blessed by visiting teaching in many ways and I try my hardest to make sure others know that I am there for them and will help them any way I can. I love this gospel and the person that I am with it in my life.
