Hi I'm Hannah

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a daughter and I'm a sister of 5, second born. I love being part of a big family. There's always something going on, my house is rarely quiet, and there's a LOT of love going around! Not only my immediate family, but I come from a huge extended family as well, and I can't seem to ever get enough of those people I love! I'm in my junior year of high school and plan on attending a university once graduated, what I will study in is a mystery...I love little kids, so whatever I end up doing will definitely involve working with children! In fact, I currently work at a gym in the childcare center, and I love it. As some people dread going to work, I look forward to getting to spend time with the kids I work with:) I love to sing, play piano and guitar. I currently teach piano, but over the past couple of months have started to veer away from teaching. Not my area of expertise:P But we can all use improvement, I'd say!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I honestly cannot see my life any other way. I suppose that's what anyone would say when they're raised in a good family like myself, but imagining my life without the Church is hard. If I can't imagine it, how could I live a life without it? My testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel has grown through church youth activities, and especially having the opportunity to attend seminary an hour every school day. My testimony is as simple as this: I believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. My entire life is my religion, and there's no way I could get through one day without the help the Lord brings me and my family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. I don't go around thinking that everyone needs to be just like me, but I always strive to be living as if the Savior was in the room with me. I've learned that you never know who is watching you, and taking account of everything you do. For example, at my work, all the little kids like to play in the pretend kitchen. They love to make you "food." (It's adorable.) Kids come up to me all the time and bring me a little cup and say "I brought you some tea/coffee!" And although I know to them it doesn't make a difference, I always say "Oh I don't drink that! How about milk or juice instead?" I only have to say it once, and then they never bring me pretend coffee or tea again. Because one of the ways we're taught to live includes the Word of Wisdom, I always try to live it as perfect as I can (pretend or not!) and to have others have a knowledge and respect of those standards. I know that I'm able to have the strength to live all the standards and principles of my faith by reading my scriptures every night and morning, and saying personal and family prayers.
