Hi I'm Abby

I was born and raised in the wonderful state of Kansas. I am a missionary in Orlando Florida. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Abby and I absolutely love Kansas. You can tell that I am definitely from Kansas because I have a corn field in my back yard and I am terrified of crowds of people. I have always loved music. I play the piano, oboe, organ, and english horn. I attend BYU and I absolutely love it. I am majoring in Special Education and minoring in music. Right now I am serving as a missionary in the Florida Orlando mission and I couldn't be happier!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Mormon faith, and I have always been a pretty obedient child so I never really had a problem with the church and its teachings. It was definitely hard growing up in a high school with over 2000 students and only 10 Mormons, but I think that strengthened me and made me become stronger in my faith. I am a Mormon because I have seen how much the Gospel can bless me and my family. It gives me a lot of comfort to know that if I follow Christ and His teachings, I can obtain happiness and joy in this life. At one point in my life I had to decide if I truly knew this was the true church and so I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I can honestly say that I know that this is the Lords true church on the earth. He wants us to know the way and the path that leads back to Him and that is through the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My faith and what I believe has shaped me to who I am today. I live my faith by trying to serve others around me to show them that they are a beautiful child of our Father in Heaven. I think its important not only to know what you believe but to live it as well. This is a Gospel of action and by showing our faith we can be happier and find more joy in our life! I live my faith by just trying to be the best person I can be each day. Through Jesus Christ we can continually repent and change. I'm so blessed to try to live my faith each day!
