Hi I'm Brooke Lasson

I have lived in the South for most of my life. I come from a big family, and love it. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dancer, runner, and I love going on hikes! Being outside helps me see the miracles that God gives me each day.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the LDS church because of the values it teaches and the hope it gives me. Even though I make mistakes everyday I know that if I repent of those mistakes and try to live a good life by doing good and serving others just as the Savior did I will be able to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. I also love the fact that I can be with my family forever. I know that Heavenly Father has given us a way back to Him and through that sealing power I can live with my family again. To have the knowledge and comfort that there is something after this life makes the challenges a little easier to bare. I have felt the love and comfort of this power. The LDS church teaches good values and helps people think less about themselves and serve those around them. That is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I have always loved serving others. Whenever there is a natural disaster or I see someone in need I just want to drop everything and help them. Christ did that while He was here on this earth. He sought to help anyone in need. Those who needed Him He was there to help lift and support them. Each one of us is a child of our Heavenly Father. I want to make sure I feel that way everyday and so I try to treat people like they are children of God. We don't become more Christ like just by deciding to. He has given us ways to help us become more like Him. When we read our scriptures and pray daily we will be more influenced by what He has done for us and also feel the love He has for all His children.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Brooke Lasson
Through prayer is how we get our answers. If we are seeking those answers with all our hearts really wanting the answer the Lord will tell us through the Holy Ghost what things are true. The Holy Ghost talks to us through feelings. The feelings of warmth and peace are from the Holy Ghost. Listen to those feelings as you pray to know these things are true. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Brooke Lasson
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is a record of God's people who lived here in the Americas. It is to testify of our Savior and teach us how we need to live our lives in order to live with Him again. It was written by Prophets just like the bible. There is a promise given at the end of the Book of Mormon. If we read it and ask our Heavenly Father in prayer if the Book of Mormon is a true record of His people, He will answer us through the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
