Hi I'm Nan

I love to draw, I read too much, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Nancy Anne, but I go by Nan~ Why Nan? Why not just Nancy, or Nancy Anne? Well, Nan captures something of what I am. It's not a name you see everyday. It's nice, but odd. It's me. I'm creative. I love to draw and paint, I read too much for my own good (showed by my homework grades) and I try to forever be the optimist. I'm a firm believer in self-worth and a good attitude, and my goal is to be that one person that people see and think "She knows who she is. I want to be like that." I want to be strong. My parents are divorced. They've been divorced for years, far enough back that I can't remember all that much about it, but it's majorly affected my family. My mother and stepfather are not Mormons; in fact, they're "foodies" and collect wine and coffee. My sister married fast, left the Mormon church, moved to Arizona, and now will not talk to my dad. It almost killed him. I have two dogs at Dad's and a cat at Mom's, and love all three of them. I love to run, I find solace in sun, and am a proud listener of Jazz, rock, pop, Indie, classical, and mainstream music. I'm *slightly* obsessed with dragons, play video games, hang out with friends, and have a terrible memory. I'm me. I'm Nan.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, grew up in it, and am a faithful member to this day. I've had my struggles, but I've never doubted that my Father in heaven was guiding me along the way. I've looked and learned about other churches, because I hate people telling me that I'm biased because I grew up in it. Maybe I am a little, but the LDS church makes sense where many churches don't, and I have never heard a leader say "that isn't something we ask". I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true, beyond any doubt.

How I live my faith

I live my faith wholeheartedly and with the hope that I will never change. I read my scriptures, go to church, and (try) to listen to my leaders. I pray a lot, daily, all the time. And I strive to live up to the standards I am given, and try to better if I can.
