Hi I'm Annie

I'm a mother. I've run races, both literal and metaphorical. I'm a liberal. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of four. I studied theatre in college and I am currently going back to school to get my RN. I love film. I love to read. I love food. I am a terrible cook. I have a blog that I should be better about updating. I love to learn. I want to always find ways to continue to educate myself. I have wonderful friends and a beautiful family. I have a daughter who is a brain cancer survivor of 6 years. I am blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I was a Mormon for a long time because that is all I knew how to be. I was born into the church and I have never really known anything different. I went to church because my parents went to church. I had friends there and I was content. I am a Mormon now because I choose to be. Because I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and hears me and answers my prayers. I have seen Him work miracles in my life and in the lives of people I love. I know that I have a Savior who died for me, and through the Atonement, has given everyone the opportunity to return to live with Him. I am a Mormon because I believe that Joseph Smith prayed to know the truth, saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and restored the gospel to the Earth. I am grateful for my testimony. It has brought me happiness and contentment in good times. It has brought me peace and comfort in difficult times.

How I live my faith

I currently work as a leader in the Cub Scout program. I enjoy engaging in fun learning opportunities to help these boys become courteous, respectful, and loyal young people. I live my faith daily and yet I am constantly learning from the wonderful examples around me of how to be a better wife/mother/friend/member/etc...

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

The Church encourages us to engage in political affairs on both a national level and in our own communities. The leaders of the church have always asked us to prayerfully consider our feelings on any issue before we vote. It is a very personal matter and the Church is respectful of the freedom we have as an individual to vote our conscience. Show more Show less
