Hi I'm Brooke

I'm a true blue Coloradan. I love trail running, being outdoors, and enjoying the sunshine. I am a Mormon.

About Me

As a young adult attending college, I am loving life. I find deep satisfaction in making discoveries, trying and learning new things, and being adventurous. I love to be active. Through running I find peace and happiness. Over the past summer I trained for and ran my first marathon. It was totally painful--but worth it. My next goal is to complete triathlon. For me there are few things greater in life than curling up to a good book in bed, watching the sunset over the Rocky Mountains, eating a hot-out-the-oven homemade cookie, and being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but it wasn’t until I read the Book of Mormon that I became truly converted. As I personally committed myself to reading, pondering, and applying the scriptures in my life daily, I began understand more fully the true meaning of life and especially the Savior. The Book of Mormon testified to me that the Savior loved me, so much that He suffered for my sins and He died for me so that I might be saved. It is easy to get caught up in the sadness, despair, and darkness life has to offer, but through the Savior we can overcome these things. The Book of Mormon helped me to understand that the Savior is always there, reaching out, willing to comfort us and give us strength, but He cannot do so unless we let him in. I am a Mormon because living this gospel has allowed me to invite the Savior into my life. By doing so, I have become a stronger, more confident individual, my life has been filled with understanding and light, and most importantly it allows me to feel real and everlasting love, hope, and joy.

How I live my faith

Each day I try to align my thoughts and actions with Christ. I do this by being obedient to his commandments, following His example, and drawing near to him. I strive to strengthen my relationship with my Savior by studying about him in the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I seek to fill my life with things that will uplift me and I try to avoid things that will degrade me. I am far from perfect, but each day I try my best to serve others and to be a light and an example of my Savior. I have been so richly blessed by this gospel, I look forward to sharing these blessings with others as I will be serving as a missionary for the church soon.
