Hi I'm Abbey

I'm a California girl attending BYU. I love traveling and being with family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family. Nothing makes me happier than playing with my nephew and my nieces.I am currently a sophomore at Brigham Young University trying to get into the accounting program. I've been enrolled in college since I graduated high school but I did go on an amazing study abroad at the BYU Jerusalem Center this last summer. Since then, I've been on a travel high and all I want to do is get out and see the world. I play piano, and I love to be organized. As of late, my life is busy trying to juggle school, work, and a social life.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at eight years old. Since then, I have received a much greater testimony of my Lord, Jesus Christ, and my loving Father in Heaven. By keeping the commandments that He has given us and staying close with the Lord through reading my scriptures and saying prayers, I have recognized unbelievable amounts of blessings in my life and in my family's lives. I love the scriptures. I have a great testimony of the Book of Mormon, and also of the Bible. The Old and New Testaments have brought many truth's to my life and I had such a testimony strengthening experience as I went to the Holy Land and lived where many of the events in the Bible took place. I have a strong testimony of my Savior's Atonement and His plan for us. I know there is life after death and what we do now is a test for how we will be judged after we die. Through the Spirit, I have learned so much about this gospel and have received a knowledge of my purpose here on Earth and what I am supposed to do with what I am given.

How I live my faith

Currently in my ward I am the Service and Welfare Co-Chair and I feel like it is perfect for me. It's almost as if the Lord is giving me a sign that I need to make service a bigger priority in my life. As a Young Single Adult, life is busy but I try my hardest to make it to all of the various activities that go on, such as Institute, Family Home Evening, Ward Prayer, and more. At BYU sometimes it can feel like everyone around is already Mormon so there is no missionary work to be done. But it isn't true. I've realized more and more that everyone, no matter how active in the gospel, needs keeping up with and someone to watch out for them. It is a main reason for Home Teaching and Visiting Teaching, and I try my hardest to do this and be aware of the needs others around me.
