Hi I'm AriAnna

I love being a mom, wife and daughter! I love being creative and laughing and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mother, a wife and a daughter. One of my most favorite things in life is being a good friend to those around me, I find joy in others being happy! I love working with old furniture to make it look new and improved. I love being in the outdoors and spending time with my family! I feel blessed in life to have good health and a happy disposition! I enjoy anything positive. I plan on being the best me I can be so that I can one day be with my first little boy that only lived 19 days! I am grateful for life and the challenges that are given to us that help us become better individuals. I am grateful for the wonderful family I was raised in that taught me how wonderful life can be even when chaos surrounds us. I am grateful to be a mother of a sweet little boy that teaches me every day how to be better. I know life is wonderful and I am grateful for the influences I have had in my life to teach me that lesson. Life is to be enjoyed not endured!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was raised in a wonderful family that taught me the importance of being an active member of our faith. I also have my own testimony that has kept me active in the gospel. I stay active because I believe that my faith has carried me through many challenges and without my faith I feel like I would be lost. I have heard it said that being a Mormon would be hard but I say, "Not being a Mormon" would be much harder. My faith gives me comfort that the things I am doing in my life are right and that carries me through day to day challenges. For me I have never been more grateful to be a Mormon that the day my first little boy died! I was so grateful at that moment that I had been blessed to spend the past 19 days with him before he passed. I was so grateful to know that was not the last moment in my existence that I would see him. I knew without at doubt in my mind that I would be blessed to see my sweet little baby again and I knew until that time came he would be watching over me. It was at that moment in my life that I promised myself to work hard at anything good so that I would be able to one day be with him again. I truly believe that families are together forever! I know that to be true and I have been able to share that testament with close friends that have lost anyone they have loved. I'm also grateful to be a mother of a sweet little boy that teaches me so many things every day. I am thankful for a husband that is so wonderful and teaches me about love, hard work and mutual admiration. I love that I am blessed in so many ways and for me knowing my family is forever is why I am grateful to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my faith by example, I love to have friends and include everyone. One of my most favorite things in life is to love my neighbors. I have made it a goal to become dear friends with each person I have ever lived next to and I have been blessed with wonderful experiences every time I have ever moved to a new location. I love chatting with total strangers and learning about what makes them happy in life. I am not one to come right out and say that I am Mormon but if asked I am quick to tell them. I try to make others around me know that they are important to me because they are! I make an effort to share my smile with anyone I may see, and love it when a smile is shared back! For this I am not looking for recognition I do it out of love! I love to do service especially when it involved getting my hands a little dirty. I love it when we help others in our community clean up their yards or their homes. In the winter one of my most favorite things is to shovel out my neighbors driveways before they even have a chance to realize it! At church I have done many different assignments and I am excited to say that now I have the opportunity to work with the little 6-7 year olds and teach them how much I love our Savior, Jesus Christ. I love what I learn from those around me and it is a blessing to know that I am not alone in believing what I know to be true.
