Hi I'm Angela

I grew up in Germany. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for four years and I have a sweet one year old boy. I work full-time. In my free time (I don't have much), I enjoy reading books (Twilight rocks!), going out with my husband, and improving our house that we bought about a year ago. I love music and I've always wanted to learn to play the piano. Eventually, I would like to teach German.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are converts to the church. They were baptized in Germany in their teenage years in the 1960s. They met at church activities and ended up getting married in the Swiss temple. I am the fourth of five kids and we were all born in the church. When I was younger, I went to church because my parents took us every Sunday and because they taught us about Jesus Christ and his gospel. I'm really grateful for my parents, and especially my mother, for the strong faith and the testimony that they planted in me. I can't explain why but I have always known that this church is true ad that this is the right place for me to be. I have felt Heavenly Father's love for me many times, especially when I felt alone and misunderstood. I have asked myself many times why I am so blessed to be born into this church and to know why I am here on this earth and what Heavenly Father's plan for us is. I am very grateful for this knowledge and I know that heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and love us and want us to return to them to live with them forever.

How I live my faith

We go to church every Sunday. We also have activities during the week. Every quarter the women of the ward have an activity together. I am part of the comity that plans those activities. It's great to hang out with other women of all ages and do something fun together. Some of our last activities include a 5K (Lots of women in the ward participated. Some ran, some walked and some stood at the side lines to cheer up the others), and a service project for kids in the hospital (We sowed stuffed animals).
