Hi I'm Hannah

I was born and raised in Utah. I seek joy in simple every-day things. I love my family, friends, and laughing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to cook and bake. Bread is my weakness, especially when it is freshly baked! I love to read. I thoroughly enjoy getting lost in books of my choosing. I love spending time immersed in the beautiful worlds of Sarah Montgomery, Jane Austen, and the like. I love curling up with a book and not emerging until I have finished it. I have a soft spot for history. I love learning about those who came before me and the things they did with their lives. I am grateful for my wonderful heritage. I spent 18 months in southern England as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During my time there I came to love Digestives, the rolling green hills, and most of all, the people. I loved focusing each day on serving others and sharing the hopeful message of Jesus Christ. As I taught others about the Saviour each day I came to learn more about Him myself. Laughing is my absolute favourite thing to do. I consider myself a happy person, and love to share that cheer with those around me. My greatest joys in life are my friends and my family. I am the fifth of six children: two boys and four girls. So far I have three in-laws, four and a half rambunctious nephews, and one sweet niece. Though we don't all live close, we love spending time together playing games and spending time at our family ranch when we get the chance. I love learning from the examples of my parents, siblings, and in-laws, and I look forward to someday starting a family with my own sweetheart.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it feels good. The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace and purpose. As I think of my life I am constantly reminded of how living the Gospel brings me happiness. God wants us to be happy! That is His purpose and His plan for us. I have felt the hand of a loving Heavenly Father guiding me. Through the Spirit He has helped me make decisions and take steps in my life that I would never of had the courage to do on my own. As I trust in Him I can be sure that with each step forward good things will come. It is amazing to me how much Heavenly Father knows and how much I don't know! I'm grateful I can talk to my Heavenly Father and He will answer my prayers at any time. He knows all the desires of my heart because I am His daughter (Alma 18:32). We are His children, and because of that we are precious to Him. He cares about our lives and what happens to us--His children. I am grateful for the Prophet Joseph Smith, and for all he did to restore the Gospel. I know he is a prophet. I am grateful for the Book of Mormon. It is the word of God, and I feel the Spirit close by me when I read it. I know that my family is going to be together forever. Nothing makes me happier than my knowledge that I will be with my loved ones, both those on earth and those on the other side of the veil, for all eternity. Most of all, I am grateful for my Saviour, Jesus Christ. One of my favorite scriptures is 1 Peter 5:7, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." The Saviour wants us to trust Him and take advantage of His selfless gift, the Atonement. Because of His sacrifice we can overcome our mistakes and be clean again. Because of His sacrifice we can also find solace and strength in His enabling power. As we keep covenants, or promises we make with God, we are connected to the Saviour and promised that He will be there beside us, helping us with our burdens, worries and sorrows. With the Saviour at our side we can become more than we ever can with out Him.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in my everyday life. In short, that's really what being a Mormon is all about. It is about accepting the Atonement of the Saviour, Jesus Christ, and trying to follow His example each day. I try to make room in my life to help others. I have spent time coordinating events for a young single adult group, as well as spent many hours serving the women of my local community. This can include anything from just dropping in to say hello, to taking over a meal, to helping care for children. Currently I am a university student seeking a degree in Social Work. I have a great desire to help and lift others, and I thrive on helping others feel that they can achieve amazing things! I believe it is possible to live Christ's teachings of charity in every day life, whether we are focused on academics, a career, or home and family life.
