Hi I'm Ann

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I am Ann. I am a food scientist by education and a wife, mom and grandmother in practice. I studied sweet potatoes in graduate school so I guess I can say, " I 'yam' a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in a Mormon family it was not until I read the Book of Mormon in college that I realized that I had a personal testimony of the teachings of the church. As I read the Book of Mormon I felt great peace and a greater love for my Savior, Jesus Christ. I then looked back at my life and realized how many times my prayers had been answered and how the Lord had directed my life. From that time on I have had great confidence that the Lord was and is blessing and directing my life. This confidence brings daily peace to me.

How I live my faith

One of the great blessings of membership in The Church of Jesus Christ is the opportunity to serve others. My first opportunity to serve began when I was 12 years old working with the children. Through the years I have continued to teach children and youth. Teaching music to children softens my heart and has opened my heart to learn more of the love the Savior has for each of us.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Gift of the Holy Ghost means that His companionship can be yours always. I have felt his guidance and comfort my whole life. My father passed at Christmas time from lung cancer. Immediately after his diagnosis he and I visited about treatment options. We both had this very peaceful feeling that he would be all right. He died 4 days later after that conversation. Although I was very sad, I had great peace that this was right time for his death. The peace from the Holy Ghost continues to comfort me as I think back on the "rightness" of the timing of his death.
