Hi I'm Abby

I love Wisconsin, cheese curds, and people - and I'm a Mormon! :)

About Me

I come from a family that has only lived in big cities, but I'm a cowgirl at heart! :) I love my family & friends, riding horses, shooting (guns AND cameras), and have a passion for people. I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the beautiful state of Wisconsin! There's no other place I'd rather be. I am taking time away from school, work, family, dating and life for 18 months to do this because I want to share with others what has made me happier than anything else: the Gospel (or teachings) of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Everything about this Gospel just makes sense - I love it! I know it is true with all of my heart. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for our happiness, and at the center of that plan is Jesus Christ - it is only through Him that we can overcome our trials now, find real happiness and peace, and be with our Heavenly Father and families again someday. I know that the Book of Mormon is true - it is the word of God and testifies of Christ. I know that anyone who has a desire to know this for themselves and reads it, asking their Heavenly Father in prayer, will know of its truth. It has given me answers to questions I can't find anywhere else. This book, and the rest of the Gospel, have changed my life. I now have so much hope, happiness and purpose. I am so grateful!!

How I live my faith

Right now, I am serving a religious mission for Jesus Christ. I saved enough money so that I don't have to work for a year and half, and can instead dedicate all of my time to missionary service. My purpose as a missionary is to serve others and invite them to come to Christ by helping people build faith in Him. As missionaries, we help people take steps that we all have to take - such as faith, repentance and baptism - in order to be the happiest we can be now and to receive all the blessings God has in store for us. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is for all of God's children, and that's why we - myself and other missionaries - are all over the world, sharing it! :) I love being a missionary and I love the happiness this Gospel brings!!
