Hi I'm Annah

I'm a sister. I'm a hiker. I love to cook with my brothers. I'm going on a mission to Salt Lake City. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student attending BYU-Idaho studying Humanities. I love history and stories. When I was little you would never find me without a book. I once got an award for reading the most pages in a month in my class (5000 pages). I love Doctor Who and managed to get my brother hooked on it. I play piano and want to teach piano and history when I graduate. I love hiking and travel. Every weekend growing up my family and I would go hiking or camping. Now that I'm in college I drag my roommates around with me on weekends. I've been to 38 out of the 50 U.S. states (though never once have I been out of the country). Family is very important to me and lucky for me this church focuses on making the family stronger.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to members of the LDS church and was raised in a loving family. When I was baptized at eight I thought it was cool, but it didn't mean much to me then. I was truly converted when I was a teenager. I began to go to a church group in the mornings before school to learn more about the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I started to understand what it meant to be a member of this church. When I read the Book of Mormon for the first time I prayed about it. I wanted to know if the things I had learned were true and I wanted to know if the book itself was true. I received the answer that I already knew it was true. I just needed to realize it for myself. Since then I have received confirmation everyday that this church is true. I can't believe how lucky I am to be a member of this church and to have the privilege of telling others about it on a mission. If you learn anything about this church from mormon.org know that you can read the Book of Mormon and find out for yourself, like I did, if it is true. If the Book of Mormon is true then Joseph Smith was a prophet inspired of God. If he was inspired of God this church is inspired of God. Pray and find out.

How I live my faith

My faith is centered on Christ. If I can be like Christ I am living that faith. I try to be like Him everyday. I love to talk to people. I love to talk to friends about their problems and cheer them up. People see my faith by the way I act.
