Hi I'm Abby

I am from Michigan. I love to sing, be in the sun and spend time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my freshman year of college, and I am excited to keep progressing through college. In high school, I tried very hard to achieve academic excellence but what I loved the most were the extra curricular activities. I played volleyball, soccer and competed on my school's competitive cheerleading team. I was a member of our theater program and part of the show choir. There is something about being part of team and knowing I have people behind me who only want me to succeed. I think that is one of the reason's I love the gospel of Jesus Christ with all my heart, because the members are always wonderful and I can feel the sincere care and love of my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ at all times.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is God's will. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the true gospel that has been restored upon the earth today. I have been raised in this church and for the majority of my childhood I believed in the church because it is what my parents believed, and it is what they wanted me to believe. But through personal study of the scriptures and a sincere desire to know of its truthfulness for myself, I can now say that I know without a doubt in my mind, that this is the true church. Jesus Christ is the head of this church and He wants each and every one of his children to know of its truthfulness. By doing what is asked of me, by reading my scriptures, praying to my Heavenly Father daily, and doing everything I can to help the people around me, I am a happier person and I can feel God's love. The Spirit confirms to me that this is exactly what God wants me to be doing with my life. I am living out His plan for me. I have a firm testimony of this gospel, I feel of its truth and the blessings it has brought to my life are undeniable. I owe this gospel and the Lord everything that I have. I know that God and His son Jesus Christ love me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith be being an example everyday. I strive to let the people around me everyday feel the love that God has for them, through my love and kindness towards them. In my community, my family is always doing as much as we can to help those in need and always willing to perform service where it is needed or desired. I believe that the best way truly show others that you care and believe in Jesus Christ is by living the way he taught us to live everyday. Never taking a break from the way we were meant to live or treat the people around us. I strive to be more like Christ everyday.
