Hi I'm Hannah

I am a stay at home mother of 2 wonderful children. I have a degree in Interior Design. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Central Utah along with my four sisters and six brothers. We have very loving parents who taught us the gospel. I attended college to become an Interior Designer. I worked in the field for several years until my first child was born. At that time I decided, with my sweet husbands blessing, to become a full time stay-at-home mother. We now have two children and have moved back to my hometown. We love having our family close to us and serving those whom I have known my whole life. I home school my two children at this point in their lives. I love spending time with them and getting to see how excited they are when they have a new educational revelation. We enjoy sports, classical concerts, reading, and playing board games together. My biggest tangible accomplishment while being a stay-at-home mom is learning to bake a perfect loaf of 100% whole wheat bread. Some people don't consider that a hard thing to do; but just ask my guinea pig family and they will tell you it was a rough mountain to climb. We love animals and have tried our hand in "Backyard Farming". We loved it a little more than our neighbors. I love the gospel with all of my heart. I know that Heavenly Father is the literal Father of our spirits. I thank Him for allowing His Son to come to this earth that was created for us and make it possible for us to return to His presence again. I am proud to say that I am a member His church.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. They were wonderful examples of discipleship and obedience during my growing years. I attended church every Sunday with my family from the time of birth. Even on vacations we would find a nearby chapel so that we could partake of the sacrament. I knew that I loved the church growing up and that I wanted to always feel the special spirit that it provided. It wasn't until my oldest brother was leaving us for two years to serve a mission in Brazil that I understood how important the gospel was to me. I remember my dad watching the airplane fly off with my brother in it. He was crying. He wasn't crying because he was going to miss my big brother. He was crying because he knew the lives that were going to be changed forever because of one missionary. He knew how his life and my mothers life were changed by the gospel and he couldn't wait for someone else to have the knowledge that he now had. When we returned home from the airport I, being 16 years old, opened my scriptures and began to read. I believed the church was true but I wanted to KNOW the church was true. I read everyday for quite a while. I don't know the exact moment that I knew this was Jesus Christ's true church, but somewhere along the way my personal testimony grew. I never wanted anything less than a temple marriage to a worthy man. I wanted my family to be an eternal family and this was the church where all of Heavenly Fathers priesthood keys could be found on earth.

How I live my faith

I try to be a righteous mother and raise good children. We try our best to keep our home available to the spirit of Christ by watching only good movies and reading good books. Family scripture study is very important to us as well as family prayer and family meals. I serve as a primary teacher and a visiting teacher in our ward. Teaching the youth the stories of the Bible and Book of Mormon and helping them to grow their understanding of God's works is the best way that I can think of to help my faith grow. "Children are an heritage of the Lord." (Psalm 123:3)
