Hi I'm Hannah Hallsted

I play volleyball. I love to travel with my family. I'm a certified nursing assistant and want to be a nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a soccer, basketball, and volleyball lover. I love doing art. I have three older sisters, two older brothers, and one younger brother. I'm a college student and I pass my time by doing homework and reading, playing soccer and basketball, and playing the piano and singing. My family is very musically talented and sing everywhere we go, including from the subways in New York, to on the beach in California. My moms work allows us to fly all over the world,

Why I am a Mormon

I am a very lucky girl who was fortunate to be born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I was little it was just routine, going to church every Sunday and the occasional primary activity. I never truly knew that His church was the one and only true church. Last year my Sunday school teacher made me realize who I was and why I spent four hours of my Sunday every week without fail to keep that day holy and go to church. I read the Book of Mormon daily and say my prayers. I am often working on my personal progress and trying to complete it so that I can grow stronger in spirit and in faith. I love the primary song "I know that my Redeemer lives" and I truly do know that my redeemer lives and loves me to this day and I always want to be able to be an instrument in his hands. I will always stand in holy places. I know that His church is the true church because I am blessed with a Book of Mormon and I have prayed about it. We have a prophet who receives revelation and instructs us what to do. I know that the Savior will come again.

How I live my faith

My family travels all over the country through my moms work. A couple of years ago, while visiting my sister in in New York, we met a woman from Columbia, who was stranded in the JFK airport because she couldn't get on a flight. We lent her our phone charger so she could contact her family. We got to know her and she found out that we were all Mormons. She knew little about our religion so we answered questions she had about our religion. We helped her fly to Arizona with us then flew her to Utah. She asked our neighbors and us why we were all Mormons. It dawned on us that moments such as this could happen at any time. Some of us were well prepared with excellent answers. It showed us that we should always be prepared for anything that could happen. We went to the temple after she had gone home and asked them if they could get missionaries in Columbia to talk to her. They found her and later she called us and told us how grateful she was for all that we did for her and for guiding light into her life. I am very glad that I could have witnessed that spiritual experience in such an early time of my life and before having the wonderful opportunity to serve a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints.
