Hi I'm Annie Hinton

I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi I'm Annie. I come from a family of 8, have 5 other siblings and I'm right smack in the middle of them. I'm going to be a high school student at Fruita Monument and I made the Poms (dance) team of my school and can't wait to go further with that. I play the trumpet at school, and the piano, I even get to play the organ once a month at church. My favorite thing to do is draw and be creative whether it's sewing or finding a new recipe to make for dinner. I also love school and learning, my favorite subject is art, and I'm a crazy perfectionist and have to get all A's so hopefully I can hold that up in high school. I love my life and the ones in it and above all I love Heavenly Father and the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into this church and have been practicing it my whole life. Without it I don't know who I would be and the choices I would be making but I know Heavenly Father has a plan for me on this earth so I need to follow him. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel simply because it feels right and the spirit tells me it is true. I makes me feel happy inside when I am living church standards and acting as if Jesus is in the room. I love the gospel and want everyone experience the blessings and happiness it brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to be like Jesus. Since He is my savior who atoned for my sins, I try to receive his image in my countenance by always doing my best and letting my light shine. I try to live the values of my personal progress for Young Women's and am working at getting my medallion. I try to set a good example for others, though I may be different and stand out. I attend church, mutual, and activities regularly, always working at growing stronger and gaining as much spiritual knowledge as I can. I pray and try to read the scriptures daily. I always try to hold up my standards, no matter what is thrown in my path.
