Hi I'm Anne

I grew up in New England. I have a passion for language. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am studying linguistics at Brigham Young University. I love language learning and plan on perusing a career in language teaching and curriculum development to encourage bilingual education in the United States. I was born in Utah but grew up in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was born in the church my beliefs and commitment to this gospel are my own. I had many wonderful experiences with the church throughout my childhood and adolescence, through these experiences I gained a strong personal knowledge that Jesus Christ is my Savior, that I have a loving Heavenly Father that knows me personally, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by Heavenly Father to restore the Gospel, and that my family can be together forever. This knowledge has brought me tremendous happiness and peace in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for the church in Houston Texas. I will be teaching the gospel and serving the people in this area for the next 18 months.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are faithful, strong, respected and very happy. They are encouraged to participate in church service, become educated, develop talents and with thier husbands raise a righteous happy family. Mormons believe that men and women are equally important in the eyes of God. However, their roles are different. For example, women are given the sacred responisblity of bearing children, and as a result they are blessed with the nature and talents to nurtrure and love them . A man and a woman are a divinly designed team, with equal roles, and something different and vital to contribute to the family. As a woman in the church I have felt needed, respected, important. Never un-equal. Show more Show less
