Hi I'm Anna

I'm a Mormon, married to the love of my life, and enjoy spending my days with our baby girl.

About Me

I graduated from Southern Virginia University April 2011. I am half Mexican but have been raised in a very "American" home. My husband and I got married in March 2011 and we couldn't be happier. Family is so important to me and I know that if all else fails in life I want to be a good mother.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized into the church at age 8. My parents and siblings are members of the church. I was taught the gospel in my youth at church but didn't really have opportunities in a family setting to express my thoughts on the gospel. Through my years in high school I went through the motions of being a church member but lacked the personal testimony that is needed to stand on one's own two feet. Since going to SVU and being active in church and institute I have gained a stronger testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I can say now, without a doubt, that Jesus is the Christ. He lived as an example and died on our behalf. The Atonement is real and can be accessed by anyone who is humble enough to ask the Lord with a true repentant heart. Today, President Thomas S. Monson presides over the Church under direction from Heavenly Father. Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and restored the gospel over 200 years ago to the earth to benefit those for generations to come. I am so thankful for the blessings of the priesthood and the ordinances of the temple that can bless our lives if we remain worthy. I know this gospel to be true, without a shadow of a doubt.

How I live my faith

I have aligned my priorities with the teachings of the Church and have come to realize that what I may think may make me the most happy is not necessarily what Heavenly Father knows will make me most happy.
