Hi I'm Hannah

I'm a Mormon. I'm a mom, a civil engineer, and a marathon runner.

About Me

I'm a mom, a civil engineer, and a marathon runner. My husband is a physicist, and yes we sometimes chuckle over math jokes together. However, more importantly we enjoy spending as much time as possible doing active things with our four young children (the two youngest are twin girls). Together we camp, hike, bike, and play all kinds of sports. With our large crew, it's always: one part chaos, two parts fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my family, and I can't imagine life or afterlife without them. I'm a Mormon because I believe in eternal families.

How I live my faith

In my area, I search out women who are sick or suffering and try to coordinate help for their individual needs. Whether it's a few meals during a rough time or help pulling together a funeral, I try to make sure no one has to go through tough times alone. Incidentally, when my twin girls were born and I needed more than a few extra hands around the house, people from church really saved the day.

How does the Church finance its operations?

Church members are asked to donate 10 percent of their income to the Church however, many members donate more. In our house we give 10 percent, and then every month donate to a special fund to feed the hungry. When there are natural disasters or other special church humanitarian efforts, we also donate to these causes. Of course, the giving is voluntary. All donations are submitted outside of church service meetings. There is no public collection basket. I know my money is used well because the Church has very low overhead. We have a lay volunteer ministry and all funds are strictly monitored and independently audited. Show more Show less
