Hi I'm Annika

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Texas, but now reside in Utah. I am a student at Brigham Young University and I am a Pre-Nursing major. I love to run or hike, along with paint. I am very involved in school and love learning. I grew up in the church, and plan on serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in a Mormon family, that was not the deciding factor as to why I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I was growing up, I learned to always ask questions and to find out for myself if the church is true. So, that is just what I did. I began by reading my scriptures more frequently, but, other than feeling the Spirit, not much came of it. I was determined to know for a surety if this church was indeed true, and if Joseph Smith was a true prophet. So, I did just as it reads in James 1:5- If any of ye lack wisdom, let him ask of God..." and I got on my knees and prayed to my Heavenly Father. Although I did not receive an immediate or direct answer, through little and large blessings in my life, the Holy Ghost has confirmed to me this this indeed is the true church. I also know that the Book of Mormon is a true book and companion to the Bible. I am so thankful for the blessings of Prophets and Apostles who guide the church through modern revelation, and for the continuing guidance that our Heavenly Father gives us. I know He loves each and everyone of us, and wants us to be happy and to return and live with Him once again.

How I live my faith

First, I strive to better myself, and then I look for opportunities to love and serve others.
