Hi I'm Brooke Wolfgramm

I'm a full-time missionary called to serve in Iowa and Brazil and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a daughter, a sister, a student, a friend, and now a full-time missionary. I love learning about cultures, reading, and sharing the message of the restored gospel with the children of God.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I choose to be. I was born and raised in the Church but at a young age I decided I needed to know for myself if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the church on the Earth that contained the true gospel of God and Jesus Christ. I read the Book of Mormon and knelt in prayer asking my Heavenly Father if what I read was from Him. I received my answer and since then I have tried to live true to that answer. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is again on the Earth in fullness and I know through prayer and action that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His kingdom on Earth. Because of this knowledge, I strive to live my belief and become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ, every day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my daily actions. I strive to see the best in people, help those in need, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those I meet. I also strive to be obedient to the will of my Heavenly Father by reading daily from the scriptures- both the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I know that when I do these things, including prayer, I am strengthened and I am better able to live what I believe.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Brooke Wolfgramm
I think the reason why people associate a "lifestyle" with being Mormon comes from the fact that we believe religion is much more than a once-a-week thing. The core of our beliefs is the Savior Jesus Christ and consequently we center our lives around Him so that we can become more like Him. Because we know that things such as the Law of Chastity, Law of Tithing, and Law of Health (Word of Wisdom) are from God, we live them. I know that because I have lived these principles, my life has been blessed. I feel joy! I have a continual, calming peace through my day to day living. In a world of confusion, information overload, and competition, living the standards of the Gospel of Jesus Christ- or living the "Mormon lifestyle"- that peace is worth more to me than words can describe.
