Hi I'm Annabel

I'm in love with singing, playing music, having fun while still in high school! And I am Mormon.

About Me

Well hey I'm Annabel! Well I love to do what some teens do: hang out with friends, doing sports after school, and joining clubs, and doing homework =P.... I love to sing, play music, run with the track team and I love the swim team! Swimming means everything to me! I try to live my life the fullest, having fun while still in high school(: "Appreciate the Past. Make most of the Present. Live for the Future." -Becky Higgins(:

Why I am a Mormon

My brothers and I grew up in the Church our whole lives, even my mom. My dad converted when he was younger but didn't go often until he met my mom. I go to Church because I know that the Church is true. I used to think "Why do we go to church?" Not in a bad way but I just wonder until the October 2011 Conference every times President Thomas S. Monson talked, I felt that what he said is true. So now I know that President Monson is our true prophet today. The Church is the true Church. I love my family and I know that my family and I will be together forever. Without them, I wouldn't be myself that I am today.

How I live my faith

I go to Young Women, a youth group for girls who are 12-18 years old and we have a booklet called Personal Progress. It has activities to prepare us to be worthy to go to the temple, prepare us to be good wives and mothers when we're older. And when we complete the booklet, we receive a necklace that has the Salt Lake Temple. So working on the booklet helps me gain a testimony so I can share it with my family and friends. I go to Seminary, an everyday morning session before school starts. While my friends are sleeping, I wake up early and go to seminary. I can start my day with guidance but when I don't go to seminary because of school work, my day seems off and I'm like, "Oh, now I know why this day seems different..."

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Heaven is where God lives and where we will live when we do God's will and follow Jesus Christ teachings. Heavenly Fathers and Jesus Christ hopes that we can live faithfully and be prepare so that we might live with them for eternity. We believe that after we die, we will be judged and rewarded for the things we've done here on earth. But in order to be rewarded all the blessings Heavenly Father wants to give to us, we do things that He wants us to do; go to and understanding the Church, read and follow the teaching in the Book of Mormon, and listen and follow the teaching of our prophet. We believe that we have 3 Kingdom: Celestial, Telestial and Terestial Kingdom.The Telestial and Terestial Kingdom are good but we as the Church are trying aim at the Celestial Kingdom because that's where we can live with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost.
