Hi I'm Brooklyn

I grew up in Utah and plan on traveling everywhere else in the world as well. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a college student studying Communications as I hope to go into a profession that allows me to meet and help people while also living/working abroad. I love being outdoors and participating in activities like hiking, canyoneering, camping and just being outside. I'm a sucker for a great historical fiction novel or film and I love going to concerts.

Why I am a Mormon

There is no doubt in my mind that there is a God in heaven who loves each of us with incomprehensible love. In the realm where logic and reason cannot quite explain, I have found peace through the knowledge that Heavenly Father knows me and loves me despite everything I have been through. I'm a Mormon because this church brings me closer to God, through covenants, service and the love that it cultivates between all of God's children here on earth. I have found no greater teacher than that of this gospel. Through it, I am learning to be a better person: more selfless, more empathetic, more kind, more whole.

How I live my faith

In my church ward while I was at college, I held a leadership position with a few other girls my age. We helped to organize and carry out visiting teaching assignments and conducted classes during church meetings as well as activities throughout the week. I also volunteer at a Developmental Center near my house on some Wednesdays and Sundays. Here, I take patients to and from church meetings and entertain them during activities that are orchestrated by my church.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We believe that all of God's children deserve a chance to accept His gospel. For this reason, Mormons dedicate 18-24 months of their life to teaching and preaching our faith across the world. The conviction and love that we have for our Savior and this gospel is what drives Mormon missionaries to give up their lives at home and share that message with others. It's the good news and we want everyone to take part in it. Show more Show less
