Hi I'm Ann

I'm a counselor, wife, business partner, mom and I'm and Mormon!

About Me

I am a member of the Osage Native American Indian tribe and we have three beautiful kids. My husband is a member of the Navajo tribe. We have one girl and two boys. Both of our traditions emphasize family and togetherness. We also dance in "pow wows" which are Native American dance gatherings. I work as a mental health counselor as well as own our own business.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Catholic, educated in Lutheran schools, was taught Astrology by family members, and grew up in a Eastern Orthodox / Muslim neighborhood. Having came from that diverse background, I always wondered what church was true. What initially attracted me to the Church was the fact that as long as I kept the commandments, I would have the Holy Spirit with me. Imagine having guidance from the Holy Spirit anytime you need it. How cool is that?

How I live my faith

Aside from attending Church and going to the temple, I live my faith by compiling my family history. I'm an adoptee and I know both my adopted and biological families and my husband's family is HUGE. Needless to say, there is a lot of work to be done. After compiling the names, we take them to the nearby temple and do the work so we can all be together for eternity.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Believe it or not we come from different walks of life and every race and style. Some of us work while some of us don't. Some have children while others don't. In fact, we could be your neighbor, boss, teacher, etc and you might not even know it! Men and women are equal partners, each with their own special gifts. For example, my husband holds the priesthood but I'm the one that's employed full time. I like to do the cooking and he likes to do the sewing. I'm not superior to my husband because I have the full time job and he's not "over" me because he has the priesthood. We work together, side by side. Show more Show less

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Absolutely not. We vote according to our conscience and who we believe would be the better candidate. Here's a suprise, we're not all Republican either. In fact, I'm a Democrat. Show more Show less
