Hi I'm Annalise

I'm a simple girl with many aspirations and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a photographer. I LOVE frozen lemonade - even in wintertime. I want to learn how to play the ukulele so I can serenade people around a campfire. I love winter. I know how to make an amazing snowman, and I lOVE wearing mittens, hats, and scarves. I probably get that from being raised in Alaska? I want to learn how to ice skate this year.....

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this wonderful gospel. There have been times in my life where I've questioned the beliefs I was raised with - which I feel has helped my testimony become strong and a real treasure to me. I know that the Lord has given us commandments to keep us safe and happy - NOT to punish or keep us from "having fun". The most unhappy I've been in my life has been when I have been lax in following the commandments. When I put Him first, take time to really get to know Him through prayer and reading His words, I can feel His constant hand in my life. He knows what my future holds. Being a member of the Lord's true church has brought me so much peace and guidance. I know where I came from before this earthly life, I know that my life has purpose and meaning, and I know that my life continues on after I leave this mortal life. That is the ultimate gift of peace right there.

How I live my faith

I want to surround myself with all things uplifting. We live in such a beautiful world and all of it's beauty is a testimony to me that we have a loving Heavenly Father who wants us to feel joy and happiness. He also created our spirits. I am His child and He wants all the success and happiness just as my earthly parents have for me. He knows all my frustrations, fears, hopes, and aspirations and will always take care of me. I can't help but grin when I think of how the Lord has richly blessed my life.
