Hi I'm Brooke Sorensen

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I am attending college at BYU-IDAHO pursuing a nursing career. I love doing anything outdoors specifically camping and anything to do with water. I am also a CNA and have worked in several assisted living homes. I love being around the elderly and people in general. And I love to have fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunately born and raised in the church but I was not truly converted or never really knew why I was a member until my senior year of high school. I believed most everything I had been taught growing up but I don't know if I ever really knew for myself. My senior year was supposed to be the best year of high school but it ended up being the hardest yet most rewarding. Through that year it was trial after trial and I just didn't know why. That is when I realized I didn't have my own testimony and I wanted to know for myself. I prayed and prayed and prayed. I really dove into my seminary classes and started working extra hard on the small things. Soon after a good friend who was not a member asked if she could come to church with me. Fast forward, after many missionary discussions and lots of tears she got baptized. Going through that my friend would ask questions or ask why I knew that and so forth and I found myself truly answering those for myself. Through converting her I became truly converted. I love this gospel with all ,you heart and the joy that it brings is immeasurable. I am grateful for Christ and his sacrifice and example. I do not know where I would be today without the church and I am so grateful I don't have to know.

How I live my faith

I love being involved in the things the church has to offer. The more involved I am the better I feel. I love doing any type of service and helping people in any way I can. I have had several callings that have increased ,you love for the church including teaching several classes at college and coordinating activities for the women in my ward. Living the gospel no matter where I am or what I am doing has really brought me a lot of happiness.
