Hi I'm Brooks Bowman

I'm a baller, a wrestler, an Idahoan, a missonary.... And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi I'm Brooks. I am 20 years old. I was born and raised in Idaho. I played football and wrestled in high school. I grew up in a small farming community. I enjoy the outdoors. I love campin', hikin',huntin', and preachin' the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Iowa.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon, because my testimony in Jesus Christ. I have come to know him personally and his gospel through being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that Christ lives and he atoned for the sins of the world. I know that the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the same church Christ set up when he was on the Earth and he stands as head of it today. I know the Book of Mormon is true because I have taken Moroni's challenge in Moroni 10:3-5 and have prayed about it. I know that God speaks through prophets today as he did in old times. I know Tomas S. Monson is a true prophet of God. I also know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and restored the church through the power of the priesthood. I bare testimony of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ everyday in my life. I let my faith in the Savior dictate every decision in my life. I try to walk every day the path that he walked and how he walked it. I live my faith by sharing what I believe with everyone I meet, through words and actions.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Brooks Bowman
As missionaries when we visit your home, we will talk about Jesus Christ. Everything we teach is centered on Jesus Christ and his atonement, or suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane, crucifixion on Calvary, and his resurrection. We will teach you how you can apply that atonement in your personal lives, and be forgiven of all your sins and mistakes. We also teach how you can come closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ as families. Show more Show less
