Hi I'm Anne Marie

I'm going to be an elementary school teacher. I'm serving a mission in Tampa, Florida and am learning Spanish. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was studying to become an Elementary Education teacher. I love getting to work with children because they are so excited about life! Right now I'm taking a break to serve a mission for the church. I am learning Spanish so I can talk with lots of people every day. I get to meet and talk with people from all over the world who speak Spanish, and we get to try lots of great food! I love being outside! Some days we ride our bikes to get from place to place and I love it because there are so many great things to see in Florida! I love getting to see all the different types of plants and animals that live here. It's very different than where I grew up in Utah but is just as beautiful! Something that I'm learning to love every day is getting to talk to people! Every one has such an amazing story and I love getting to hear all of them.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the the answers I've personally received. Even though I grew up in the church I had to find out for myself that it's true and it was through prayer and reading the scriptures that I got those answers.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm living my faith by serving a mission for 18 months in the Tampa, Florida area. Every day I get to talk to people about Christ and the love He has for them. Each day I learn something new that strengthens my faith and in turn helps me know how to help others. As a missionary we also get to do weekly service here in the community to bless the lives of others. Some of my favorite service days have been when we go help paint houses!

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Anne Marie
The scriptures have our Heavenly Fathers plan for all of us to be happy in this life and to know how we can return to live with Him. When we read the scriptures we show Heavenly Father that we want to learn more about Him and His plan for us. The scriptures teach us all about our Savior and the Atonement. The scriptures help us know of our purpose on this earth and what we can do to be better people. We can find answers to our questions in the scriptures if we will take the time to search for them and do it with an open mind and heart. Show more Show less
