Hi I'm Anneli

I'm 22 years old, and just graduated BYU-Idaho. I love my family more than anything. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a general music major with a theatre minor. I love the arts. I wish the schools weren't cutting them, and I believe the performing arts have a significant effect on children's lives. I love music. It makes my life easier when things are at their worst. So does my wonderful husband and family. They are my life. Life is not perfect, but they make it all the better.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith. I've been raised in the Church, but I'm grateful everyday for it. I believe that this Church is true. It is the only true Church on the earth. It was restored by God through the prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. in 1830, and has been growing and touching lives of millions since then. The Book of Mormon is true. You just have to read it and pray about it, and you'll see. I am so grateful for the sealing power of the gospel for families, and for beautiful temples to be able to perform those sacred ordinances. I love the temple.

How I live my faith

I'm not perfect. Not by any stretch. I still have a lot of habits to form, a lot of faith and testimony building ahead, but I still believe that this Church is the only true church on the earth and that it had been restored by God through the prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. I hope to perform my calling to the best of my abilities, and I hope to be able to do more for my ward, and for my family, through this Church.
