Hi I'm Abby

Why hello there lovelies, my name is Abby and I am serving in the South Dakota Rapid City mission. And I am a mormon!

About Me

I absolutely love being active. Anything that has to do with it. I love playing all sports and outdoor activities. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I'm the baby of 6 kids. I am an aunt to 8 nieces and nephews. I just adore my parents and am so grateful for the examples they have been in my life. I love fashion, I have always dreamt of starting my own footwear line. I want to become a cosmetologist/makeup artist. I love participating in helping others feel beautiful in their own skin. I also love exercising and hope to one day become a personal trainer. I love being around people and making new friends. I enjoy the sunshine and the attitude it projects within people. But ultimately, I love helping others recognize the beauty, happiness, and pure joy that we can all have, which is found in the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found pure joy and happiness by living in the standards of this gospel. I feel as if my life has meaning and a purpose. I have developed my testimony of this gospel through experiences in my life that helped me to recognize and understand the Lord's hand in my life. I continue to follow His gospel because I can't imagine living in a world of chaos and confusion without having faith in a much greater purpose to this life. Nothing in this world has brought me more happiness and joy than this gospel. I am grateful for the knowledge I have gained, the strength I have been given, and the hope I continually have, that is all provided because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that this gospel is true. I know that we are led by a Prophet today who was ordained of God and gives us true inspired direction from the Lord. I know that we are led by a great group of apostles that continually give us guidance and counsel which will help us to get one step closer to being prepared, ready, and worthy to return to live with our Father in Heaven. I know this is true. I live it. And I full heartedly love it.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith through example. All throughout my life we are told that we are watched by those not of our faith and I have come to recognize that it is a powerful way to show others the gospel and how it can affect your life. I have made many mistakes in my life and I know that through the atonement of Jesus Christ, we all can be clean and strive to become better.
