Hi I'm Annie Moyes

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, a big ball of energy who pretends to be Samoan, an ukulele player, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of five kids with two brothers and two sisters. I am an Elementary Education major with a TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) minor. After coming home from my mission in Hawaii, I will graduate BYU within a year and half, and will hopefully begin my journey as a teacher soon after. I was born with lots of energy and heart full of love for this world, for our loving Heavenly Father, and his children!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen and felt the influence of God's love for me in my life. I have felt comfort and peace from my loving Savior when I felt alone or like no one could understand what I was feeling. When i read The Book of Mormon all the way through for the first time, I have never felt happier. It just made sense. I never received a huge "YES!!! THIS IS IT!!" But as I read and pondered and prayed, I could not deny the joy that filled me and my life. Life got harder as I came to know of this truth for myself, but I became stronger. I had been given the strength to overcome and to go through life's trials with a smile on my face, knowing that if I do my part in keeping the Lord's commandments, God would do the rest. And that is why I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to hold the true and everlasting gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best I can be every day. I live my faith by looking back at that day that I didn't do my best and repenting of my shortcomings so I can start over the next day.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Annie Moyes
Just like any parent hopes their children return home for Christmas or Thanksgiving, or when a family has had a death, you hope that you can see them again. God feels this way as well. We are His children, and He wants us to go to this life to learn and grow and experience the blessings of this gospel so that we can one day return to Him again. This is possible through the steps of Baptism. Unfortunately, not everyone on this earth will have the opportunity to learn or accept the gospel, so we are baptized for our ancestors, so that they too can return to our Father in Heaven and be with their families for all eternity!
