Hi I'm AriAnn

I am a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Hawaii and raised in Utah. I come from a great family. I am the oldest of 7 children. I studied at Brigham Young University where I met my husband. We have been married for 3 years and have a baby boy. We love traveling and visiting new places together. Our most recent trip was to China where we explored and enjoyed the wonderful Chinese culture. Most of my days are spent taking care of my baby. However, when he takes naps I enjoy painting, singing, playing the piano, running, making things for my home, sewing, taking pictures, watching movies (The Blindside is my favorite), and writing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I believe that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet; the only man on earth today who can receive revelation for all of God's children on earth. I am Mormon because I have faith, because I have felt the whisperings of the Holy Ghost and because I enjoy the blessings that I receive by being a member of God's true Church.

How I live my faith

My husband and I attend church weekly. We pay our tithing and enjoy serving in our ward. We have a marvelous ward which we never want to leave. I love visiting teaching and spending time with the women of the church. It is such a blessing and a great strength to be able to meet as sisters and talk about the Gospel. There is amazing power that comes from joining together and serving together.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Our bodies are sacred. They were made by God and house our spirit bodies. Taking care of our bodies is important to do because it not only shows respect for that which God has given us but it also helps to make sure that our spirit bodies are in control of our physical bodies and not the other way around. By taking care of my body I can better remain mentally aware, emotionally sound, and physically strong. Taking care of our bodies is more than just refraining from drugs and alcohol. It also entails eating healthy, exercising appropriately, strengthening our brains through learning and maintaining a good sleep/wake schedule. Show more Show less
