Hi I'm Ann

I love to make chocolate chip cookies, read, and be with family. I have 4 fun boys. I'm married to a great guy! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for over 20 years to a great guy! We have 4 boys and we do a lot of things together as a family. We love sports, hiking, going to the beach, cheering each other on, and working together. We are always on the go, but we love to sit around and talk and visit with friends and family members too. Our two oldest sons are currently serving missions for the Church and while we miss them, we are so grateful for their testimonies and their desire to help others come unto Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I look at my life as a journey with a plan. This plan, our plan of happiness, has done more to help me understand why I am here on earth, what my purpose is for being here, and what I need to do each and every day. Every choice that I make, I try to make in accordance with my purpose on earth. Being a Mormon adds a clear focus, an eternal perspective, and a path to follow without wondering what to do. This has helped me as I have focused on being a full-time mother over the last twenty years. I know the importance of raising our four boys into responsible, faithful, kind, and hardworking men has added clarity to my daily journey. I am grateful that the prayers which I say each day are heard by a loving Heavenly Father who knows the needs of each of my family members. I am grateful that our family will be together forever, throughout the eternities, and that death isn't final. I can't imagine that, as I so enjoy being with each of them!

How I live my faith

I love being involved with families in our community! Whether helping coordinate our elementary school spelling bee, volunteering as the team mom for little league football, or fundraising for our high school lacrosse team, I am always trying to live as an example of one who is kind, honest, hardworking, patient, and helpful. Following the example of Jesus Christ helps me know how to act in every situation, every day of my life.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

I have been blessed by following the promptings I've received from the Holy Ghost. Knowing that this is a gift to help me, and that obeying the commandments and living close to Jesus Christ is the way to continue to have this great gift, I strive each day to stay worthy to receive these promptings. It has helped me with big decisions, daily challenges, and prompted me to pray for protection for myself and my family members. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes! I am grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ, and know that it is through the gospel of Jesus Christ that all mankind can be saved. We center our faith on our Savior and I look to Him for guidance in my thoughts, actions and deeds to others. Show more Show less
