Hi I'm Anne

I'm a Mormon. I was born in Phoenix, AZ and grew up in Peoria. I come from a terrific family and have 2 wonderful children.

About Me

I am a typical woman, the mother of 2 grown children and now divorced. I love nothing better than reading a good book. I love to take walks and enjoy the pine trees here. I love to sew and bake. I also love to watch movies, especially the old romantic ones my mother taught me to love. My companions right now are my 2 cats, Fanci and Max, who keep me company. I play piano for church meetings, or the organ, and enjoy that also. My life is so good and I am a Mormon and love and am grateful for the Savior, Jesus Christ, and his atonement for me and all of us.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have always known it was Christ's only true and living church on the earth. My parents and other siblings knew this also, as I was growing up, and instilled this truth in me. I have always loved the hymns and the scriptures and read them every day and love the way they make me feel. Jesus Christ is such real part of my life and me faith is so strong. I know how much He loves me personally and knows me and knows my name and cares about me. It makes it so much easier going through this tough old life because I know this about Christs and Heavenly Father and that they are aware of everything that happens to me. I also love being able to depend on the true Priesthood of God that is held and exercised in this church to the benefit of everyone in the church. I love having a Prophet on the earth to help us with current problems and help us focus on what is really important in our lives. I definitely want to try to live so that I will be with Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, again after this life is over and I know I will have my resurrected body back and my family with me if I do what I know I should do, and have covenanted with God to do. This is all that really matters to me. I would be miseerable forever without my family around me. I love Jesus Christs, our Savior.

How I live my faith

I try each day to be a kind person to all I meet whether it is at a store, or driving, or anywhere. I love to know of a service I can do for others, it also helps me to forget my troubles or just put them into perspective. Right now I play piano for our Primary which is the organization for the children who are18 months old to 12 years. This is a great job, just to be around the children and help them learn the beautiful songs our church has to teach them the Gospel. They are so eager to learn and enthusiastic. I also love doing my Visiting Teaching each month. Each woman in our church has women assigned to visit her each month and make sure she is doing well, and become her friend. It is a great responsibility and I love making new friends. Over the years I have also been a cub scout leader and positions working with our young women and the adult women and lots of opportunities to teach classes. I love being with the other Saints each Sunday. I am so grateful the Gospel is in my life.
