Hi I'm Brooke

I am a Mom. I attended BYU-Hawaii. I am a Mormon .

About Me

I am a 28 year old stay at home mom. I have a 4 year old daughter, a 2 year old son and another son who is due on New Year's Eve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from BYU - Hawaii. My husband is an Entrepreneur and we own a MIssion Tortilla Route. I love sports, being outdoors, spending time with my family and traveling. If I could go anywhere I would visit Tahiti. I was fortunate to have a Dad who was a pilot and took us around the world exploring as we grew up. I have visited the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, Hawaii, Korea, England, France, Australia and many places in the United States. I got to increase my passion for learning about the world when I attended BYU - Hawaii and lived with, studied with and became friends with students from around the world. My life changed at that school as my testimony grew and also my awareness of how fun life can be while learning about so many different cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe have a testimony of the gospel. I gained a testimony while attending BYU - Hawaii and it has grown ever since. I grew up in the church and for the majority of my life I did everything expected of me. I relied on my parents, teachers and families true testimonies. I was 19 years old when I finally wanted to know if I could gain my own testimony. Putting the gospel to the test and striving for my own testimony changed my belief in the church. Rather then just feeling like church was good I now know what I believe in and can share that with my family. I believe in Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father and the Holy Ghost. I have a testimony of the power of prayer. I have Faith in Jesus. I have a testimony that families can be together forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every week. I know this may sound simple, but sometimes it is the hardest thing you do all week (because of having young children). Teaching my children to sit in church, using reverent voices, folding their arms, closing their eyes for prayers, taking the Sacrament, etc...are all important ways I live my faith. I have had multiple callings in recent years. I have been in the Primary for the majority as a teacher, secretary and counselor. I have learned to teach kids, keep records and help smoothly run a children's organization. My favorite thing about the primary is listening to the children sing. When they sing you can feel the spirit. It gives me goose bumps and lets me know that I am in the right place at the right time.
