Hi I'm Brooke

My religion makes me who I am.

About Me

I just graduated high school about 6 months ago and then moved Florida! Here I am a nanny and trying to decide where to go to college and what to study. I'd have to say that right now is the hardest time in my life I've had so far. I've heard people say it is but I just figured out on my own that they were indeed right! I'd say some of my hobbies are reading, swimming/water activities and being with family and friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but that isn't why I decided to be a Mormon, I made the choice myself. As a child I listened to what I was taught at church and obeyed the rules, but as I get older it's not that easy anymore. The gospel has to be in every single thing I do, for me and to be an example to those I'm around. As important as it is to share what I know about the church with others I know that the gospel is for me. I have prayed for so many things and gotten so many blessings and answers to my questions, big or small, to deny what I know. Without the church my life would be too hard and too unhappy for me. I know Heavenly father put the gospel in my life for me.

How I live my faith

I attend church every week, but it needs to be more than that. Every night I read my scriptures and keep a notebook and pen close so if something sticks out to me I can write down the scripture or why it's important to me at that time. Sometimes I will right something down for every verse of scripture and feel like i'm over doing it but I never hesitate because that something could help me later on in my crazy life. Some nights when I'm super tired i only read one verse and sometimes don't remember what I read before I fall asleep, but at least I try and remember! I also pray night and morning. Usually I get into bed and get comfortable and THEN remember I didn't pray and think to myself "Ill just pray while i'm in bed tonight" but I always talk myself out of it because it feels almost disrespectful to my heavenly father and Jesus. I can get out of bed and on my knees for a couple minutes to say how grateful I am for what I have and to ask for help. I can't count how many times i have said a prayer in my heart and begged for help. I don't think heavenly father thinks any less of me if I dont get down on my knees to pray every time I need to ask for help, I think he understands.
