Hi I'm Savanna

I love college football, I grew up in rural Nebraska, I have a cute puppy named Benson and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love life! I grew up on an acreage in rural Nebraska where my childhood was spent in the garden, or riding horses, imagining all sorts of outdoor tales, hiking through the jungle (i.e. cornfields), and playing archeologist with my paintbrush and rocks. I participated in just about every activity there was in our small high school then graduated and moved out to attend college. I married my husband in 2005 in the Winter Quarters Temple. We graduated from college in 2008. Right now it's just the two of us and our dog, but we love our little family and can't wait for it to grow! We enjoy making our house a home, hockey games and of course HUSKER FOOTBALL! We like to mix in a little Crimson Tide with that Husker Red as well. Rammer Jammer, Go Big Red :) !

Why I am a Mormon

I'm what you call "pioneer stalk." My anscestors joined the church in England and made the trek west to Salt Lake. But, that's not the real reason I'm a Mormon. The most important reason is that I choose to be a Mormon. I have a testimony of our Living Savior. I have gained this testimony by reading the Book of Momon and following it's precepts. I have seen direct blessings come from this. I first read the Book of Mormon when I was a freshman in college. 3 Nephi 9-17 really stuck out to me. This is the record when Jesus appeared to the Nephites, here on the American continent. Just as Heavenly Father testified of His Son Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost testified to me that our Savior lives. He lives and he loves us. Because he loves us he guides his church through a prophet called by God, Thomas S. Monson. He gave us a prophet so that we can know how to return and live with our Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I am a leader for our ward's young women (ages 12-18). We meet every Sunday and Wednesday. We serve others, make chocolates, have pedicure nights, have fasion shows, read scriptures, volunteer, and the list goes on. I love seeing these young women make correct choices, live virtuous lives and stand as examples to all those around them, including me.
