Hi I'm Deanna Hibpshman

I grew up in Colorado. I volunteer at animal rescue centers. I go to school at Brigham Young University Idaho.

About Me

I am a country girl. I was born in Alaska and raised in Colorado on a small farm. I graduated from Coal Ridge High School in may 2012. I am Serving as a Mormon missionary in the Jacksonville Florida Mission. I love the church and the happiness it has brought my family and me. I enjoy training Horses and volunteering at animal rescue centers. I am very much into camping, fishing, hiking, and rock climbing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon Because I Know that it is the true gospel of Jesus Christ I have known it most of my life. When i was 5 my mom moved my 3 older brothers and I to Colorado were we stayed with my grandparents. During that time, my grandma would take all of us kids to church. I made instant friends with many of the kids my age. As I grew up I watched some of these friends and even my brothers and mom stop going to church. Then when I was 13 I kept asking myself why am I still doing this with no family here what was the point but I still kept going because something felt right. There were something about the people that made staying feel right. I realize now that that feeling was the Lord telling me that I was in the right place and that everything that I was living by was pleasing him. I know that this church is true and that everything that is taught in it is to help me learn and grow closer to my Savoir. I love this church and everything that it represents. I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to everyone around me and share the light of Christ. As of right now I am serving as a missionary for 18 months in the Jacksonville, Florida mission.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Deanna Hibpshman
The Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ just as the bible is. The Book of Mormon Like the bible is a collection of the writings of the Prophets that lived in ancient America before, during, and after, Christ's time. This book was put together by one of the last prophets to write in it, Mormon. Show more Show less
