Hi I'm Annie

I'm a wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life revolves around my family. My husband and I have 3 children. I stay at home with them, only one daughter is of school age, so my days are spent playing with and caring for young children, as well as trying to keep up with the messes that we create. We have no pets but we have a vegetable garden, raspberry patch, and grape vines. I do a little sewing, a little painting, a little furniture refinishing, anything of a creative nature I like to try . . . I always have a project of some kind going. I also enjoy reading, and being active physically. I really like good food, especially of the fresher variety--although I'd prefer not to be the one who makes it. I was an excellent high school student, and an okay college one. I have a bachelors degree in exercise science. I still like to learn and study new things, though I don't spend a lot of time doing that at this point in my life. As a family we like to be outside- hiking, camping, or just at the park.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up actively participating in this church. I was baptized when I was eight; the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has always been a part of my life. I chose to continue to live this gospel, and these are the principles and doctrines I chose to teach to my children because I feel it is true. I know I am happy when I abide by Christ's teachings and I have seen the difference it makes in the lives of my family and friends as well. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and I believe this is His church. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me direction and brings peace to my life. I choose to be a Mormon because I feel that in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I find truth--eternal truths, and those truths guide me in matters big and small and give me peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

It is important to me to attend church each week and remember the Savior and renew my commitment to follow him. At our Sunday meetings I currently have the resposibility to help teach and direct the childrens sunday school. We work at teaching our children correct principles and to be kind and good. I try to live those principles myself. Living my faith to me means living the commandments taught in the scriptures and by modern prophets. It means working on bettering myself. It means making God a part of my life.
