Hi I'm Anissa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student. I am a convert to the church. I was baptized on September 25, 2004. In my spare time I boogie board and spend time with my family. I am very passionate about doing service for others.

Why I am a Mormon

I needed something more in my life. My mom had contacted the missionaries and they showed up at our door to teach us the lessons. I really wan't interested in the lessons ,but I decided to listen anyway. After a few lessons I decided to get baptized ,but I was still nervous. Even on the big day I was nervous about my baptism. I was baptized on September 25, 2004. It was a special day because it was not only my baptism day ,but it was also my birthday. I was a strong member for a few days ,but then I fell away. When I was inactive I felt like my life wasn't being lived to its fullest and so I rejoined the church. I think that my membership in the church is stronger than ever. I know that the church is the only true church. I love the gospel with all my heart and strive to be the best example that I can possibly be. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I feel closer to him through prayer. The church has brought me the greatest happiness and I have never felt closer to my family.

How I live my faith

I am an active member in the church. I was just released from being a primary worker. I strive to live a life that I know my family and my savior would approve of. I dress modestly and refrain from using words that do not invite the spirit. I do not smoke or drink or do things that could harm my body. I try to live a positive life and be an example to those around me.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

I believe missionary work helps with the growth of the church. Not only those who are out serving in other countries ,but those who share the gospel with their friends' and families. Show more Show less
