Hi I'm Sister Hannah Scadden

I'm from Oregon. I love to write, sing, play guitar, I'm on a mission in Oklahoma, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Mormon. I love the theater, music, writing and reading. I hope to travel the world one day, possibly as a photographer. I'm on a 18 month mission in Oklahoma, which has been such an incredible experience to preach His glorious gospel. Last of all, I love my family, friends, and my Father in Heaven and beloved brother, Jesus Christ. I strive to be the best I can, so that I may live with my family in Heavenly Father's kingdom once again.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are LDS, but it's my choice to be truly apart of this faith. I love the gospel and what Heavenly Father and the Savior have done for me. I know that they love me and that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith, by doing what I know is right and go where God wants me to. I listen to the prophet's voice, whether that voice is President Thomas S. Monson's or a biblical prophet, I still strive to listen and follow their example. Every Sunday when I go to church, I try to listen to the speakers and lessons. I have been going to early morning seminary every day, ever since I was 14. When I go, I participate in the lessons by listening to the teacher and answering questions asked. I strive to attend every General Conference session, by setting those days aside specifically to sit with my family and listen to the prophet and apostles of the church. And when I make mistakes, I repent with a sincere heart. I sometimes wonder who I would be if I didn't have the church in my life, and I cannot even begin to think that my life would be happier without it. I love this gospel, and the teachings of it. I love my Father in Heaven and His son, my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It's about not having sexual relations until legally married. It teaches us to be pure, and the blessings that we receive for following it. To me, the power to create children is sacred. Just think about it. You're bringing a little life into this world. And if abuse that power, then you abuse not only yourself, but your posterity as well. Also, there are dangerous diseases that come from having a lot of sexual relations and could hurt you or the little one that is coming into the world. How sad it is, that in the world today, it's encouraged to have sex before marriage, even if you just met the person, and that's not right. Sometimes, it's considered an insult to be called a virgin. I think those who are still pure, need to be proud of it, not to condemn others, but to know that you are just waiting for that one true spouse you will have in the future. I don't need to lose my virginity to feel good about myself. I have made the promise to keep myself pure, because I know that my body is sacred and that is what Heavenly Father wants me to remember. I am grateful for my temple, my body, which was created by the Father, and that is why I keep myself pure. Show more Show less
