Hi I'm Brooks Wilson

I am from Waco Texas. I am an All American Cheer Leader. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hey my name is Brooks! I love biking, hiking, and kayaking. One thing I think is cool is music. When I was in high school I was in a school play which was a lot of fun, along with being the school mascot! I attended a semester at a local community college and am currently serving my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon today because of the trips I took as a youth. While hiking in the mountains my leaders encouraged us to grow closer to God. While hiking one day I decided to go off a little ways from camp to pray. I asked God if this is his church and if I was doing the right thing. After that prayer I started to see him in my life even to the point I cannot deny him and his church.

How I live my faith

Back at home I would help out the missionaries. While in my teenage years I made friends with these Elders. They taught me a lot on being a good person and how to love others. As I got older I became a leader to the rest of the youth. Not because I was a great speaker, or because I was cool. It was because I cared. I learned that being a friend and helping every one is what Christ did and that is how I led by example.

What is faith?

Brooks Wilson
One of my favorite prophets in the Book of Mormon said "faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." I have come to love this verse because I don't have to know everything I just have to put my trust in the lord. Doing this has blessed my life. Show more Show less
