Hi I'm Brooke

I was born and raised in California. I am a studying to be an electrical engineer. I am Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year at college. I love sports of any kind, but played volleyball and soccer through high school. I sew and do other fun crafts with my family. My family means so much to me and I love them all, even if we don't always get along.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that it is true. I have had the Spirit confirm to me that it is true. I grew up a member, but I have gained a testimony of my own that this is the true church. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of our Lord, that he restored the truth to the earth, and that he translated the Book of Mormon. I know that because the Gospel was restored we are able to have eternal families. I love my family and I know that we can all be together again one day. I know that we were all given a choice in heaven and that we all chose to come to this earth to learn and grow. I know that without the Gospel, that after this life we will not have any progression. I know that my Savior died for me and suffered for my sins because He loves me. I know that my Heavenly Father knows me personally by name and loves me and is proud of what I have chosen for my life. I know that He loves every one of us equally and wants the best for us.

How I live my faith

I lead the music at church which has helped me to overcome many fears that I had in the past. I have been assigned sisters to visit with and I have come to know and love them all. I go to church with my family on Sunday, and after I go to my own ward with the young single adults. I also serve as a Ward missionary which allows me to visit with new members and get to know them. I grew up a member and have never had any other way of looking at things that are so common in the church, but because of my new friends that are joining the church i have been able to broaden my mind and see things in a new light. Because of these friends i have grown stronger in what I have come to know as truth. It is within me and I will never let my light be put out.
