Hi I'm Hannah

I grew up in Washington. I'm a University of Utah fan. I'm a 5k champ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student studying exercise and sports science. I've never been stung by a bee, which is surprising because I love being outside. I love to run, hike, camp, and layout in the sun. I was a lifeguard and swim teacher for 3 years, but now I'm a waitress at a sushi restaurant. A few months ago, I had never had a real sushi roll and now I can eat them whenever I like. I love being a waitress because I get meet all different types of people.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I can not deny it. I was born into a LDS family, with two loving parents that taught me the gospel. When it comes time to question my beliefs and I reflect on my experiences with the gospel and the church I can not deny what I have felt and been taught. I have felt comfort from my Savior when I have prayed late at night scared of the dark or from a broken heart. I have felt my Saviors love. At times it has been difficult to keep the commandments, but I know that as I have tried my hardest I have been blessed with comfort and assurance that I am doing the right thing. I know that striving to obey the commandments makes me a better person. I feel peace and assurance when I live the gospel. I have never been happier when I'm doing all I can to follow the commandments and that's why I'm Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to be better everyday. Trying to be a little nicer. Trying to be more honest. Trying to show a little more faith. I live my faith by trying to be a representative of Christ; treating people as he would. I live my faith by saying my prayers and reading my scriptures.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

We believe that you have to be baptized with proper authority. We believe that the proper authority is Priesthood, which originates with Christ. When you are baptized your sins are forgiven, you become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and you convent to do your best at following Christ so that you can live with God in heaven again.
