Hi I'm Anna

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Utah. I'm married to a wonderful husband.

About Me

I'm disabled, and mostly homebound. I enjoy hearing from others online. I enjoy genealogy work, and computer games. I enjoy finding inspiring stories and clipart on the internet. Sometimes, I write or edit.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I value truth and light. And especially because I know that God hears and answers our prayers. He loves each of his children. I like this quote:  Elder Kent F. Richards, “The Atonement Covers All Pain”, Ensign, May 2011, 16. “As Elder Dallin H. Oaks has taught: ‘Healing blessings come in many ways, each suited to our individual needs, as known to Him who loves us best. Sometimes a ‘healing’ cures our illness or lifts our burden. But sometimes we are ‘healed’ by being given strength or understanding or patience to bear the burdens placed upon us.’ All that will come may be ‘clasped in the arms of Jesus.’ All souls can be healed by His power. All pain can be soothed. In Him, we can ‘find rest unto [our] souls.’ " I have often felt the love of Jesus as I've struggled with health and other problems in life. I have felt his influence as I've tried to learn the lessons he wants me to know. One thing I know is that God really cares, and that he'll lead us and guide us through the dark, and back into the light. He will walk with us through it all.

How I live my faith

I am a family history consultant. I work at a local genealogy center. I enjoy learning about my own ancestors, and helping others discover their own family histories. I like to read the stories of what my ancestors did with their lives. In the 1800's, in Great Britain and Sweden, my ancestors first heard about the LDS church. They embraced their new religion, and traveled across the ocean and across the United States in wagons and handcarts to Utah. I'm glad for the legacy of faith they have given me.
