Hi I'm Abby

I'm a freshman in college. I love life. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 19 years old and attending my first semester of college in southern Utah. My goal is to become a Neonatal Nurse and work in the Newborn intensive care unit. I grew up in a small town in Utah my whole life and moved to the other end of the state my senior year! It wasn't easy but I loved it! I enjoy being outside admiring the beauty all around me. I am so blessed. Some of my favorite things are running, hiking, music, friends, smiling, laughing, food, and family. I am such a lucky girl to be a part of the LDS church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have great parents who raised me in the church. I am not only a member because of my parents, I am a member because of all the experiences in my life that have reassured me that this church is true! I am a Mormon because of the peace it brings to my life. When I am following the principles of the church my life is simpler and easier to navigate. I know I have so many people who want me to become better each day because I want the same for them and we all eternally have the same goals. I love having the support of other members. I am never alone. I am a Mormon because of all the blessings I see in my life. I am a Mormon and I LOVE IT :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being me! I try to be an example of everything I have been taught. I participated in a local singing group throughout high school called the CD's (Christs Disciples). Through my musical talents that I was blessed with I was able to share my beliefs with others. Not only were was I able to share the message of my faith, I was able to show attributes of my faith. Each year my group and I would put on a spring show. All of the proceeds from this show we would then donate to a family or group in our community that was in need. Service is a great example of my faith. I love to serve those around me and share my happiness I get from being a member of the LDS church.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Families are forever! Families can be sealed together for eternity in the temple. This means if a family member is to pass away you will be able to be with them again! This is so comforting to know that this life is not the end. Show more Show less
