Hi I'm Brooklyn!

I live in the woods of Maine. I am a nurse; but most importantly, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a nurse, my job is to give hope and life to those who are hurting. To become a light and a smiling face, even in the mist of tragedy. I believe my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me. He made me who I am for a specific reason... to help others. I am a Maine Mormon and I have found my purpose.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in South Jordan, Utah, in a typical 6 member, Mormon family who walked to church together every Sunday. To those from the outside looking in, our family appeared to be perfect, complete; then the unexpected happened. Divorce and upheaval. However, through it all, I wanted to prove to myself that I could be different. I could become a light to those around me. I could continue to learn about what my Savior, Jesus Christ, had done to save me from a life of darkness. I needed to be the proof that even when you are worn, tired, and all hope seems lost, there is a way out. My life is evidence that Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, are always standing there... just waiting for us to reach out and grab Their hands for strength, comfort, and unfailing support.

How I live my faith

First, I am not perfect, but I try to live a happy, generous, and positive life. I am not the type of person to walk around yelling, 'I'm a Mormon!'; however, those around me seem to sense a difference. I want to share God's message of joy and love to more than my neighbors and co-workers; therefore, I have decided to go on a missions trip for my church. My assignment is to the Santiago, Chile area where I will be serving as a mission nurse specialist. This involves giving 18 months of my life to provide physical, mental, and spiritual relief to those around me. To share the great news that God does love and care about all of His children individually! I have been preparing for this experience by reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon, studying the words of old and new prophets, attending church, and also having scripture studies with people my age. Ultimately, I try to live my faith through my actions and my words.
