Hi I'm Bromwyn

I grew up in Washington, enjoying the outdoors. I graduated from BYU with a degree in Wildlife and Wildland Conservation

About Me

I'm the second oldest of four kids, with two little siblings 12 and 14 years younger than me. At times I felt like they were my "practice children," and I've enjoyed growing up taking care of them and watching them grow. My interests are somewhat diverse: baking, painting, cooking, reading, hiking, camping, birdwatching, dancing, learning new languages. I've always been a bit of a naturalist I suppose--nature has always struck a deep chord with me. Knowing the names of plants and animals, understanding the way the world works, or being able to pick out constelations, has always made the world seem so dear and friendly. I suppose it was no suprise that I studied Wildlife and Wildands Conservation in college. In April I graduated from BYU with my Bachelors--hopefully the gateway to many outdoor adventures in new countries--and now I've decided to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church, and I suppose I always had at least a child's basic faith--I felt happy at church, and my parents said it was true, so I believed as well. When I was a teenager I began to have doubts and wanted to know for myself that this was really all true. One day I felt a dire need to know. I felt confused and lost. After a while of feeling this way, praying for guidance, I decided to fast. After fasting for a day, that same evening I opened my scriptures and read Moroni 10 from the Book of Mormon. As I was reading I had a strong feeling come all at once: this book was true. And if the Book of Mormon was true, then this gospel was true. This experience didn't mean the end of my doubts, but it was what I needed at the time to continue to attend church, keep reading my scriptures, and praying to receive a stronger testimony. I've always attended church, and I've tried to read my scriptures daily. I've always felt that someone was listening to my prayers, and praying nightly has helped that feeling grow. I can now say I know for myself. I know this church is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and that with Him I can overcome anything in this life. I know Heavenly Father knows me and listens to my prayers, and I know He knows what He is doing.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, helping others understand the principles that I now know for myself are true.
