Hi I'm Brookelyn

I'm a military brat. I like to draw. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to draw, specifically anime.....at least I like to think I can. I like to dance ballroom (Lindy-Hop, Cha-Cha, Waltz, things like that). I'm a middle child, with eight siblings. I've participated in Winterguard for two years of high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I didn't think of why I was part of the Church until a few years ago, when I was around 16. Some things were going on in my family, and I was ready to give up. I was taught at a young age that if I needed to, I should pray. I went to my room, locked the door and knelt by my bed. I began to pray, praying that it would all work out. I sat there for a moment afterwards. I heard a voice in my head. I don't know if it was mine or another's, but it said, "Everything will be fine." It hasn't been easy, going through this trial, and it didn't end the way I had hoped, but everything did turn out fine. More recently, I had to go to the doctor because I was working on my mission papers. I've been sick for about ten years now and the doctors still don't know what's going on. I visited two or three times before the last one, continuously getting prescribed different medications. I waited for the insurance and bill to come back, expecting to have to pay around $400 dollars that I needed for my mission. I tried to think of how I could do this, and the thought of not paying tithing crossed my mind. However, I ignored that thought and continued to pay my tithing, because I had been blessed before when I've paid it. The bill came a few weeks later. The insurance took care of it all. The most that I had to pay was around $100.

How I live my faith

I've taught the Young Women in my ward once or twice. I haven't been called to that position, but have been invited to come in. I've helped out with some of the parties that my church has held.
