Hi I'm Anneli Bryant

I grew up in Arizona to a wonderful family. I am serving a mission in Santa Rosa California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student with an undecided major. I am involved with the Women's Chorus at my university, and I love singing. My whole life has been dedicated to music and bringing it into the lives of others. I am serving a mission in Santa Rosa California, speaking Spanish. My parents were divorced when I was 15, and my dad died very recently. The decision to go on a mission has been difficult for me, but I know that this is what will please my Heavenly Father and my earthly father. I am now dedicating my life to doing all that would please them and make them proud.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only way to truly be happy. The joy that is brought into my life from the knowledge of who I am and where I am going has helped me through all of my trials. I know that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father and that He loves me. I know that everything that happens in this earthly life happens for a reason and that I am fulfilling a divine purpose by being here. I know that my family will be together forever, and that I will be reunited again with those whom I have lost. I have felt the blessings from living the gospel in my own life and I know that the doctrines, principles, and commandments as outlined in the Book of Mormon are true and are the building blocks for eternal life. I know that the atonement covers all of my sins and when I repent, I am forgiven. I also know that the leaders in this church are inspired of God and that they will never lead us astray. And I testify these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I lead the music in my single's ward, which helps me share the gospel through music. I am also a visiting teacher, which gives me the opportunity to look out for other women in my ward and serve them whenever they need me. The blessings in my life have been abundant as I serve others and see their faith grow through my actions.
