Hi I'm Brooklyn Schanze

I am a daughter of God (our loving Heavenly Father), he lives and loves us ALL. I KNOW it's ALWAYS worth it to trust in him.

About Me

I'm a leader, NOT a follower. That's just who I am. I'm not perfect, I'm a hypocrite, I'm human and make mistakes. I'M NOT going to give up no matter how many times I screw up. I'm gonna suck it up, get back up, smile and keep living the way I feel God (our loving Heavenly Father) would want me too. I am a daughter of God. This is who I am. C= If my happiness bothers you then I'm sorry, but I'm going to keep being happy, and keep moving forward no matter what. And if I ever need to just take a second to get back on my feet and calm down then I will, but I'll try to always do it in a way that isn't super destructive. This is my testimony: I KNOW God lives, that he loves us, and that NEVER giving up and keeping his commandments is ALWAYS worth it. ALWAYS! I know this from experience I'M NOT AFRAID TO FALL :D ♥ It means I climbed up high. To fall is NOT to fail, YOU FAIL WHEN YOU DON'T TRY ☼ I'm NOT afraid to fall ☁ I might just learn to fly and I WILL spread these wings of mine! ☁ If I get up I might fall back down again, but I get up anyway. :D :D Even if it's the 40th time, cause either way then I will have tried. I'm NOT afraid to fall I'VE FALLEN MANY TIMES C= And they laughed when I fell down ☼ BUT I have dared to climb! ☁ I'm not afraid to fall I KNOW I'll fall again, ☀ But I CAN win this in the end!!! ☀ Falling down is just apart of life, and getting back up and learning from it just makes you that much stronger ☼ EVERY TIME C= and yes, it IS worth it ;)

Why I am a Mormon

This is why I dare to be a Mormon, dare to have a purpose firm, and dare to make it known. :D I KNOW THAT GOD (our loving Heavenly Father) LIVES! :D When I was 13 or 14 in my moment of doubt I ASKED HIM IF HE IS REAL, I ASKED HIM, "God how do I know your real??? Please I want to know!?!?" And at that very moment I felt hands (from the other side of the veil) on the sides of my arms by my shoulders in broad daylight. I was WIDE awake and healthy as ever. They were comforting me. I instantly whipped around but no one was there, but even after I turned around I could STILL feel those hands on the sides of my arms by my shoulders comforting me, in a very loving and caring way. AND THEY WERE REAL, if you put your own hand on your arm right now, they were THAT REAL. I KNOW THAT GOD LIVES. He is our loving Heavenly Father! He loves us ALL. He really DOES watch over and protect us EVERY DAY! :D IF YOU GIVE YOUR ALL TO HIM, KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, TRUST IN HIM, AND NEVER GIVE UP ON HIM HE WILL TAKE GREAT CARE OF YOU. And he WILL ALWAYS give you what you so DESPERATELY NEED. As I stand before you this day I say to you that ALL THINGS with God (your loving Heavenly Father) ARE possible! He has filled my life with more joy and happiness than you could EVER imagine. He will also do that for you if you NEVER give up, keep his commandments, and ALWAYS trust in him. He REALLY DOES know what he's doing! It will ALWAYS be worth the wait! I know from experience. I once waited 8 years for happiness. I've been bullied. I've felt alone. I waited 20 years for my TRUE friend Shelby. I prayed to meet and find a BFF like her almost every day. It was SO WORTH THE WAIT. With God ALL things ARE possible. I believe and trust in him because Heavenly Father's my BEST friend. He's been with me through it all. He never said life would be easy. He only said that it would be worth it if you just trust in him. He WILL take GREAT care of you I promise. Everything's going to be okay, just trust in him.

How I live my faith

By just trusting in him and NEVER giving up, and staying positive no matter what happens. And by always praying, and reading my scriptures, and trying my best, and by ALWAYS becoming a better person than I was yesterday. :D Also I live it by always trying to just live by being a good example to others and by having integrity the best I can. :D
