Hi I'm Brooklyn Van Vleet

I'm from Middleton, Idaho. I will be serving a mission in Edmonton, Canada... and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have lived in Idaho my whole life. I enjoy being with family, photography, cosmetology, planning parties, the outdoors, and scrap booking! I am the oldest of 7 children. 4 boys, and 3 girls. I have recently received my mission call to serve in the Edmonton, Canada Mission and I report to the Provo Missionary Training Center on May 20, 2015. I love finding the simple joys in life. Such like seeing newborns, helping someone by serving them, or especially seeing someone come to a knowledge and accepting this true Gospel. I do not think that there is a greater joy in this life, then seeing others come unto Christ. I love this gospel more than words can describe and I'm thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who has given me the gift of the atonement and that I can apply it to my own life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know this church is true. I know Joseph Smith is a true prophet of god. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon for us in our day, to receive knowledge and gain faith for our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that Heavenly Father loves me, and each and every one of us. I'm so grateful for the power of prayer, and that I can talk to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ every day! This gospel has helped me grow and become the person I am today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my every day living. Living my life in a way that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father. I love looking for opportunity's to serve my Heavenly Father. One of my favorite scriptures is Mosiah 2:19 " When you are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God". I also love being immersed in the scriptures. I love searching the scriptures for answers to my questions in life. For like it says in 2 Nephi 3:2-3 that the scriptures will tell you ALL things by which you should do. I love being a representative of our lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know that we can ultimately become more and more like our Savior by living, loving and serving as he did. I hope that I can be the type of person that people will want to get to know me, because they can see the light of the Savior in my eyes. All we need to do is take everyday with one step at a time.
