Hi I'm Brooklynn

I'm a college student and a rugby player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and I play varsity rugby. I grew up in the church with a big family of ten kids. I love spending time with them as well as all of my extended family and friends! I enjoy playing the piano and the ukulele, reading, hiking, camping, road biking, and, of course, watching movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be LDS (Mormon) because I have felt and I know that this gospel is true. It gives me a sense of identity and purpose. It gives me a chance to grow, make mistakes, take second chances, and have hope for the future in this life and in the life to come. I know that families are literally forever, and that because of God's plan for us I will be able to see, talk with, and give a big hug to my relatives that have passed away and whom I miss dearly. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, that is was translated by Joseph Smith through the power of God, and that its words work in addition to those of the Holy Bible to provide us with prophetic history, guidance, and inspiration. I know we have a prophet alive today, one who receives and shares with us revelation from God. I'm both grateful and humble that I have come to know these things to be true.

How I live my faith

The simplest way to maintain a connection with God is to pray and read scriptures. I try to do these things daily, and I have received many blessings because of it. Serving others is another way I love that helps me be as Christlike as possible, and helps me remember who I am - a daughter of God. In my community at church, I have had the opportunity to play hymns for the women's group as well as teach Sunday school classes to children 12-13 years old (middle school). I enjoy learning and worshiping with my community and look forward to each Sabbath day and the sacrament it provides.
