Hi I'm Brooke

I like art, running, oranges, and donuts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a twenty-something, art history lover, west coast best coast, kind of girl. I run as an excuse to breath fresh air (and to eat more donuts). I travel because I like meeting people who are different than me and because I like adventure. I work for a digital media company and my nieces are my BFFs.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way that I can be truly happy and have peace, both now and for eternity. I know that it is through the teachings, and sacred ordinances, of the Gospel that I am able to learn about my Father in Heaven and grow closer to Him. I know that the Book of Mormon teaches about my Savior and helps me to understand Him and love Him. I am a Mormon because I know that this Gospel is the true--I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, walked this earth, died and was resurrected so that I can live for eternity with my family. I am a Mormon because I know that my Father in Heaven and my Savior love me. I am a Mormon because I know that when I get down on my knees and pray to my Father, He hears me and talks with me. My Father in Heaven and my Savior have not left me on this earth all alone, but rather they have given me, and the whole world, the Gospel so that we can learn, grow and prepare for a beautiful, eternal life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by consciously making an effort everyday to develop my relationship with my Father in Heaven and by always trying to make the world a kinder place. I love going to church every Sunday to learn about Jesus Christ and to gather with my friends to be uplifted. I try to make time each week for an institute class, where we get to explore in depth the teachings of Christ. Finally, I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have to teach classes on Sundays and to plan activities for the women in my ward.
