Hi I'm Ann

I am a convert to the church. Because of my previous "life" I don't always feel that I fit in. But I know this is Christ's church.

About Me

I grew up in the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area of California. I was a teenager in the 1960's and did my share of partying. Nothing severe but I had a good time. My childhood was spent in an alcoholic, abusive home. I joined the church at age 38. I received a personal witness that what the missionaries told me was true. When I joined I was a single mother working full-time. That was 17 years ago. Now I am an early retiree, empty-nester, who enjoys spending time with my family, doing genealogy and census indexing for the church. My current calling at church is as a nursery assistant.

Why I am a Mormon

Heavenly Father testified to me thru the Holy Ghost that what the missionaries taught me was the truth. I can not deny that overwhelming personal witness given to my spirit.

How I live my faith

We are all God's children. We are a very diverse people. I celebrate our diversity and try to treat everyone with respect and love. The Savior is my example of how I should strive to live my life.
