Hi I'm Ann

I'm a Mormon. I grew up all over the United States and I now live in Minnesota.

About Me

I am a mother of 5 children - ages 19-8. I have a great husband. I have a degree in zoology and a high school teaching license. I have not taught in several years as I chose to stay home with my children. I volunteer a lot in the schools and substitute some. I love to read, travel, garden, and be outdoors!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? The short answer - because as I have studied the scriptures and prayed I have felt the holy spirit testify that the Bible and The Book of Mormon are the word of God. When you know that, then you have to act on it.

How I live my faith

My faith is part of my everyday life. I try to allow it to affect all that I do - as a parent, a friend, an employee, a volunteer, a neighbor, etc. I want to truly be a disciple of Jesus Christ. This doesn't mean I am always preaching, but it does mean I am trying to act as Christ would have me act - to be kind, helpful, and cheerful. At church I work with the teenage girls - and I love it! It is great to work with people who have so much enthusiasm. I am also assigned to watch over and visit two other women. My assignment it to make sure their needs are being met and to give them uplifting messages.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Ann
There are a number of things we can do to stop pornography. First we need to have strong families. Our children need to know that we are always there and they can and should come to us with questions, concerns, and needs. We remind our children of what God expects of them and how to react to pornography if they come across it. To help keep our home safe for all of us we use filters on our computers, we limit computer time, and we keep our computers in a public place in our home. We also have a purpose when we are on the computer. We do not get on it just to look around. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Ann
Mormons believe in Jesus Christ. We are Christians. We know that he lived and atoned for our sins. We believe in the Bible because it is the word of God and the history of His dealings with people in the Middle East. Show more Show less
