Hi I'm Annie McPherson

I am a musician and student. I believe everyone has the ability to achieve greatness. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third child of eight kids and love spending time with my friends and family. I have many younger siblings so I enjoy watching them grow. Over the years, I have been very involved with music and performing. My passion for singing has especially continued to flourish since I was a little girl. I also love spending time outdoors. Some of my hobbies include: running, biking, snowboarding, hiking, yoga, and baking. I have also done a lot of traveling in my short years. A few months ago, I went to Guatemala to help build a school. In the future, I plan to give medical care to those in struggling countries because I have a passion for nursing. I was studying music and nursing in college before I decided to serve a mission. For now, that is my main priority. I couldn't be more thrilled to go out and share the gospel with the people in Brazil. Only a few weeks left!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but it wasn't until I was about 12 that I was sure of its truth. I have been through many hard things in my life. However, when I turn to my Heavenly Father during these times, I always feel of his love. Throughout my life, this church has brought me much peace. It has taught me what matters most in life. I know that I have a Savior that came down to earth and atoned for my sins. I know that he died on the cross and was resurrected so I could have a way to return and live with my Heavenly Parents. I know that this life is a time for me to be tested. Through obedience, service, and repentance I believe it is possible. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet on earth today, and that he was called of God. I know the power of the priesthood. I am grateful for Joseph Smith and the sacrifices he made for the church. I know that through him, the church was restored and The Book of Mormon translated. I have read and studied its pages and I know it comes from God. Families play a big role in God's plan. I know that through obedience I can live with my family forever. I love this gospel and I want the whole world to know of its truth!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by showing love and kindness to others.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Annie McPherson
The Book of Mormon is another book that tesifys of Christ. There is great power that comes from reading it. When I read it, I am strengthened. Every time I read it I learn something new. I know it was written for our day in age. Some people think that there is no need to have another book when we have a bible already. I love that the Lord has given us another book though. It only shows how much the Lord loves his children. It also shows that he has never left us. He has and continues to give us all that we need to know in this life. If we will only search and study the scriptures we can always know. I know this great book comes from God. The truth of this book is also manifested by the way it came to be. Joseph Smith was a man with very little schooling. However, through the power of God the Book of Mormon was translated from ancient Egyptian language to English. He could not have translated it alone. I know this book is true and it blesses lives. Show more Show less
