Hi I'm Anne

I lived in Montana, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and finished high school in Kansas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 4 boys and 1 girl. My last 2 boys are identical twins. My husband and I have been married for 46 years. I have 16 grandchildren whom I love very much. I started oil painting when my children were raised and I now love to do pencil drawing, especially of children. I have illustrated 3 children's books and have built one of these books into an app for different digital devices. I love learning new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that this is His church and that He leads this church today. I believe in a loving Father in Heaven that cares for each and every one of us even today and I believe that He would not leave us alone today. I know that we have a living prophet to guide us today just as the ancient church had a prophet to lead them.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed many opportunities for service in my church. As my boys were growing up, I served in the scouting program. I learned much as I taught youth groups, younger children's classes and taught women's classes. I love music and I now direct the music for our Sunday meeting. I have the privilege of visiting with other sisters through our visiting teaching program. I visit each month and present a spiritual message as I visit with the sisters.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

When I married my husband in the temple, we were sealed together for time and all eternity. That means that if we are faithful to the promises we made, that we can live together after this life and have our family with us also. Our loving Heavenly Father's plan is for us to have joy and that joy includes our families. Show more Show less
