Hi I'm Brooke

I grew up in North Carolina, I love to conduct music, and living the LDS faith is the best decision I've ever made.

About Me

Growing up with the Smoky Mountain National Forest as my backyard, I grew up loving nature and still do. I love hiking, kayaking, biking, swimming, camping etc. I also love music. I was in Marching Band in high school. I played flute and was Drum Major. I've played Pirates of the Caribbean more than enough times for one lifetime and yet I still love it. I am planning on studying Linguistics in college, and using that degree to become an Interpreter for the Deaf.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I chose to be. At one point when I was sixteen, I decided that I needed to make a decision about whether or not I was going to be a member for the rest of my life and if I chose to be, why.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I've never known a way of life that is not in accordance with the Gospel. Sundays are sacred days of rest that are dedicated to the Lord. I don't shop, or work on Sundays. Even some recreational activities (like swimming) are not appropriate for Sundays. I don't curse or swear. I don't drink coffee or tea and obviously I stay away from drugs and such. I serve my church right now through filling a position called Ward Missionary. Basically I act as someone in the ward who encourages the other members to be good examples and to share the Gospel whenever the opportunity arises. I also, serve the fellow women in my church by doing what is called visiting teaching. Every few months, I am assigned two women for which it is my responsibility to visit with and teach. When I visit, I usually talk with them in a very real effort to get to know them, see how they are doing and if there is anything that I can do to help them or serve them. I live the Gospel by doing my best to follow all the commandments that God has given me, all the time, everywhere I go.
