Hi I'm Abby

I love planning parties. I'm the life of the party. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Throughout my life I've always enjoyed leading groups and creating fun, exciting, different activities. While attending college, I have taken that passion, and volunteered my time helping on campus, as well as participating in activities like flag football, winter guard, photography and musical experiences. I'm studying to become a therapist, and hope that I can continue to reach out to others and make a difference in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

Whether or not to be a member of the Mormon church has never been a question I've doubted. To my non-Mormon friends, my name has always been synonymous with "Mormon,"and I've always tried to wear that title with pride and honor. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has answered so many of my questions, and helped me know who I am, where I am going, how I am going to get there, and ultimately how I will be happy, for now and all of eternity. I know that the LDS Church is true, and Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, who restored this gospel to the earth. I know that I can live with my family again after I die. I know that the Book of Mormon is a companion to the Bible, and can teach us how to repent and come unto Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the World. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me, cares about me, and knows me by my name.

How I live my faith

My childhood was spent in the great city of Chicago, Illinois. I didn't have many Mormon friends, but that didn't stop me from living my faith. Whenever an inappropriate school dance was happening, I would plan unique parties to gather my friends around and have an alternative choice. One time I planned a spaghetti dinner, but we could only eat the food with weird utensils, like whisks, straws, spatulas, or one chopstick. It was a blast and helped everyone keep their standards without being left out. Recently my family has moved to Dallas, Texas, and I continue planning fun activities with the young single adults in our region. I attend institute locally, where I learn about my religion, and receive guidance for my life and how to better help my friends in their lives. I work with my leaders and friends to create a great network that helps individuals spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially, as we journey together through these years.
