Hi I'm Savannah

I love life and I love to laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a full time missionary in Frankfurt, Germany Mission! I will be serving from July 2013 - January 2015. I am serving because I love the Lord and I know this church is true. My family is my rock. I have two older siblings, a brother and a sister. My parents are the best and would do anything for me. I could not have asked for a better family! I love to read. I am obsessed with Harry Potter and could quote the books if you asked me to. I also love to draw, paint, listen to music and hang out with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints because I have received a witness that it is true. Every time I read the Book of Mormon, I experience a peaceful feeling, and know that it is a confirmation from the Holy Ghost of its truth. I have prayed to know of its truth. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true, I also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that through him, the true church was restored on earth. I know that President Monson is the prophet today and that he is called of God. I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father live and that they love us. God is our father and he wants what is best for us. If we pray to him, he will guide us and show of his love for us. This knowledge has been such a blessing in my life. Because I know that these things are true, I want to live my life in a way that Heavenly Father would have me live. I have seen countless blessings in my life because I have chosen to follow the commandments given by God. I know that this gospel is true and I am so grateful for the love and peace that I have in my life because of it.

How I live my faith

The scriptures teach us that God gives to his children line upon line. This is how I live my faith. Step by step and day by day I try to follow the commandments that our Heavenly Father has given us. Every day, I set aside time to study the scriptures. This has been the biggest strength in my life because it is a sure way to know exactly what God wants and expects from me. In addition to personal scripture study, my family prays and reads the scriptures together daily. This has been a great way to make us close, especially spiritually. I attend church weekly where I am a Sunday school teacher for the six year-old's. It is amazing to see just how much they understand and love Christ even at such a young age. I've learned that the best way to live my faith is through charity and service. The Book of Mormon teaches us that when we serve our fellow beings, we are only in the service of our God. Through service in my community I can show the love of Christ to others and improve their lives and also my own.
