Hi I'm Hanah

I'm from sunny Arizona. I am a devoted wife. I am a loving mother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Saint Paul, MN and spent a lot of time in the small town of Saint Cloud, MN. I am an only child and come from an overall small family and was raised Catholic. I moved to Arizona when I was about 12 years old. When I was 16 I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and quickly began taking the missionary disscusions. As soon as the missionaries began to teach me, I knew what they were teaching me was true. I knew that this was the true church of God. By the age of 17 I was baptized. Becoming a member of this church was the greatest decision I have ever made. It is a wonderful feeling knowing I will be together forever with my family. I am now a stay at home mommy to two wonderful little boys and have an amazing husband who works hard for our family. I enjoy dancing, photography, baking, home decor, and sharing the gospel any way I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert. I am the only member in my family. When I was 16 I was introduced to the gospel from a close friend. I was interested in the church and starting taking missionairy discussions at my friends house. I quickly learned about the gospel and about Heavenly Father's plan for us. I will always remember the first time the missionaires took me to the Temple. I broke down in tears later that night. I knew this was the true church of God and that I was doing what was right. I soon became baptised and began a new life as a member of the church. This is the true church of God and I am so grateful to have the gospel in my life and to able to raise our children in it. So many wonderful blessings have come to our family and I know there are many more to come. Being a member of this church has changed my life and made me a better person. I look forward to sharing my story and telling others what I believe and the joy I have. I will always continue to follow His gospel, for I know that it is the true path to happiness and eternal life.

How I live my faith

I feel that I live my faith everyday. I have taught the youth in our ward and have helped organize many activities. I am currently helping out on the activities committee at church, helping bring the sisters of our ward together in fun ways. I am also currently a volunteer photographer for the Church and love that I can combine two things I love, the Church and photography. I have helped out in times when others may need meals or someone to talk to. Living your faith is about being there to help others when they need it. Living your faith means that you need to be an example to others and your family at all times. I look forward to the many more service opportunities that come my way.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is knowing that something is true. It is sharing what you beileve with others so that they may know and feel of the things you believe. By gaining your own testimony of the Lord and His gospel you grow closer to Him and by sharing your testimony it helps others gain knowledge and feel the Spirit. Show more Show less
