Hi I'm Hannah

I'm president of my class, I grew up in a small town, I love to watch movies, I enjoy a variety of music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Freshman in High School.I do well in school with straight A's. I do very well in English and love to write. I'm president of my class. When I'm a Senoir in High School I want to get into BYU (Brigham Young University) Provo, Utah. My parents are together and have five children including myself. We are all very close. My family are my best friends. With my siblings, I make videos, many of them spoofs of our favorite movies. Movies that I like are Twilight, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes (With Robert Downey JR.), Lord of the rings, and some superhero's like Iron Man and Batman. I have done some sports, but currently am not participating. My favorite sport to play is ice hockey. I really enjoy playing my instruments(Violin, piano, saxophone, and guitar.) My favorite animal is a turtle/ tortoise, and I have a pet tortoise named Lilly. I go to church every Sunday and church youth groups every Tuesday. Starting this year I will be participating in Seminary (Kind of a Bible/Book of Morman class starting in High School.) I'm a third year in our girls camp which is a yearly summer camp for girls ages 12-17. I try to do my best daily and overcome any trails thrown my way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member born into the church. This does not, however, mean that I am a member for this reason only. I only do the things which I know are right and true. I have started to develope my own testimony of the church instead of living off that of my parents. I see our temples and churches, I listen to our prophets and leaders, I watch the members, I feel the overwhelming warmth and happines and think how could anyone doubt that this church is true? I've been to other churches(Catholic, Born Again Christian, Protestant, Baptist, etc.) and know that there are some true points made but there are a few missing key points.This church has these few pionts. Two of the most important being the priesthood(The authority to preform out religious practices) and The Book of Morman(Another Testament of Jesus Christ.) When I go to my church, everything is there, and it just makes sense. Many of the ways of the church like refraining from drinking, smoking, swearing, etc and remaining true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, modest, etc are hard things to do (especially in the world we live in). We know these are good things using our common sense. So why don't other churches stress these points? Why do they not forbid smoking if they know it will harm you? I would like to end by saying I know this church is true. I know that it is, indeed, the church of Jesus Christ. I know that, for a time, it was lost on this earth but restored by Joseph Smith the prophet. It has brought such peace and happiness into my life. I know that we can repent of anything we do wrong, as long as we are truly sorry, because Jesus died for us all on the cross. I know that no matter what trials we may have in our lives, this church is worth it. I know that if we are baptised, go to the temple, and live our lives worthily we can live with our Heavenly Father and our families for an eternity in heaven. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I like I said above go to church every Sunday. I go to our church youth groups. I had a calling (A role in the church appointed to a person through the Branch President/Bishop by God) to be the Beehive president in our Young Women program (For young girls ages 12-18). Beehives are the youngest Young Women ages 12-14. As Beehive president, I helped arrange youth activities and fundraisers. When I was 14 I was released from that calling and moved up to be a Mia Maid (Young Women ages 14-16). I have taught some lessons to the Young Women and have given many talks and prayers during my life in the church. I participate in many service projects such as a food drive, town cleaning, and running booths at community events. I try to be an example to all I come in contact with. I do this by carefully living my values and always choosing the right.
