Hi I'm Ann

I was born and raised in Utah. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a mother of nine children, all married, and a grandmother of thirty five grandchildren and still counting. I loved riding my horse when I was growing up and going camping and fishing with my family. After I got married we did that with our children as well as hiking, canoeing, doing a lot of dutch oven cooking. We had four boys, all involved in scouting activities, and all eagle scouts. I was a stay at home mom and always enjoyed my children. And now my five daughters are all at home raising their own children.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was in my teens, I have had a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the church and how much it helped me know how to conduct my life. All the time I was raising and teaching our children I could not imagine what I would have done without the teachings of the church. This church is all about family and how to become a stronger and more righteous family. All decisions and direction in my life are influenced by my beliefs and priorities the church has taught me. I know we have a prophet of God at the head of this church and I know that Christ, my Savior lived and died for all of us. And by standing by these beliefs, my life has been happy and very blessed.

How I live my faith

Growing up I always loved going to church and I had a strong testimony of it's truthfulness. I have had many different callings in the wards we have lived in. I was camp director one summer of the girls, ages 12 to 17 in our ward. I have been chorister in Primary which are the younger children ages 5-11 in the ward. I have been president of the womens' organization in our congregation and multi congregations. We taught the women how to be better mothers and daughters of God. Also to get to know the women in their neighborhoods and how to serve them in their callings as visiting teachers.
