Hi I'm Savannah

I'm from Texas. I write music. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! Before my mission I was attending college, studying Human Development. I hope to one day be a researcher or an adolescent therapist. I remember how hard it was to be in middle and high school, and I know it will only get tougher. I want to be able to help. I am becoming a runner! Before my mission I completed my first half marathon, and I hope to continue running during and after my mission! I am also a big sister and I love my family! My siblings are the funniest and my parents love and support us. My little brother has a disease called Muscular Dystrophy, and my family is very involved in charities for MD. I love my family. My family has it's problems, just like everyone's does, and we're riding a very bumpy road, but I know that if we rely on Christ, we can solve our problems and come out stronger.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that there is no other way for me to be closer to my Savior and no other way for me to return to my Father in Heaven. I have seen my life be continually blessed because of my living this gospel. I know that God answers prayers because He answers mine every single day. I know that the church Christ established while He lived on Earth has been restored, and that restoration came through our first prophet, Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book and that reading it has brought me closer to the Lord than any other book. I have faith in my Heavenly Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that God loves all of His children, and that He loves me. I have never felt so happy as when I am living in harmony with His teachings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as I grow closer to Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. I organize the music for our church services and lead the choir. I visit other girls my age each month and help them grow closer to the Lord, as well. I try to be helpful and kind to those around me and try to always help everyone feel included.

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We learn in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon that there is no other name whereby men can be saved. It is only in and through our Savior Jesus Christ and His Atonement that we can be saved. Our faith in Jesus Christ should help us to trust Him with our problems, and rely on him to help us through our trials. This faith and trust should also lead us to act. It is only when we act upon our faith that it grows stronger. Show more Show less
