Hi I'm Anna

I grew up in Sweden. I taught classical singing in Belgium. I'm a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Sweden and lived for the most part in Stockholm, Sweden's capital. Later, I lived in French-speaking Belgium, studying and teaching classical singing. I now live in in Arizona as a single mom with three children, and I really love this beautiful, friendly place, despite the hot summers. I like to read books and watch movies, spending time with my children and travel. Right now I am learning Spanish, hoping to go to Spain one day.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents opened the door for the missionaries when they were newlyweds, and my six siblings and I grew up with the teachings of Jesus Christ at home and in Church. When I was a teenager, I asked a lot of questions about our faith, and read the Book of Mormon cover to cover, wanting find out for myself if I believed that it is the truth. I prayed a lot to find an assurance that this is a faith I truly, myself, believed in. While doing this search, I had a good time with my friends in Church, going to camps and other fun activities. With time, I realized that every time I prayed, and every time I read the Book of Mormon and the Bible, I had a warm, friendly feeling that these scriptures are true and right. I love to go to Church and be surrounded by good people who care, and to worship God. I also enjoy teaching my children about Jesus Christ, so that they can lead good, happy lives. And I love to pray to God many times throughout my day.

How I live my faith

I have a really fun assignment on Sundays, leading the songs in the women's class. I enjoy singing in the soprano section of our choir. Also, together with another sister, I visit two sisters in their respective homes, once a month, to give them a short spiritual message and see how they're doing. I like the friendliness and the feeling of belonging.
