Hi I'm Attena

I'm a farm girl. I love my crazy family. I love my Savior Jesus Christ, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a feedlot in Southern Alberta. I have been truly blessed by my Father in Heaven. I had loving parents, and enough siblings to always keep me preoccupied. My parents raised me to believe that I have a loving Heavenly Father whom I can always turn to in my times of need. Working on the farm taught me the meaning of hard work. In high school I spent every minute I could playing sports. I loved the competition, and the camaraderie of teammates. After high school I attended BYU-Idaho for one year. I met so many wonderful people who have left a lasting impression on me. I served as a missionary in the Canada Halifax Mission from March 2013 - September 2014. It was a life changing experience for me, and I am so grateful for the opportunity that was mine to serve. As of right now I am attending MacEwan University in Edmonton and I am enjoying all the new experiences that are being placed in my path. I love my Heavenly Father and I know He loves me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Jesus is the Christ. I know that he lives and that he loves us. I believe the Book of Mormon to be another testament of him, and studying the Book of Mormon brings me happiness and peace. It invites a very real spirit of comfort that I don't find anywhere else. The doctrines within the Book of Mormon solidify my faith and understanding of why we are here, and what happens when we die. I am so grateful for the Book of Mormon!

How I live my faith

To me, living the gospel means striving to become as our Savior, Jesus Christ. That means that everyday I try to do as He would do. Serving others while living with honesty and integrity blesses my life. Sometimes I do better, and sometimes I fail, but the happiness and peace that comes from simply trying my best brings me a peace of mind that I don't find doing anything else.
