Hi I'm Brooklyn Benson

I grew up in Pismo Beach, CA. I am a soon to be missionary (July 1st) and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just recently finished my first year of college. I am in the Kinesiology program and hope to continue in that field. I'm not so sure exactly what I want to do. I enjoy playing sports and being with my friends. I am the oldest of 4 kids in my family. I just received my mission call to Idaho and I am so excited to teach the gospel to those that don't have it yet.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I am so grateful. I know that this is the true church of Christ. He has a plan for all of us to return back to his presence through repentance. I know he suffered the sins of the world so that we could repent and be saved. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God. I know he translated the Book of Mormon through the Spirit of Revelation. I know the Book of Mormon is true from reading it entirely. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet called of God to lead and guide this church as the mouth piece of God. I know that Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are all real. I know they are 3 separate beings that act in one purpose. I know that the church and priesthood power are restored in these latter-days to never leave this earth again. I know all this to be true with my whole heart.

How I live my faith

I have participated in a few ways in my church. I was the president of youth classes as a youth that taught me how to be responsible and lead others. Recently I was a secretary for the women in the church. The organization is recognized as Relief Society. I was also a Sunday School teacher of about 15-20 students.
