Hi I'm Hannah

I am a student. I am a dancer. I have been called to serve as a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an LDS family which I am so grateful for and have lived in Utah with a large LDS influence most of my life. One of my passions is ballet and I have sacrificed much to pursue it . When I was in high school because of my love for dancing I began attending alternative high schools in order to make it possible for me to work in the morning to earn money to help my parents pay for my training. I attended BYU for a year pursuing a degree in economics and plan to return their after my mission. As of right now and up until February of 2016 I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Portugal, Lisbon mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I feel the presence of my fathers spirit constantly and see his hand in my life frequently. When I study the Book of Mormon and when I pray and when I really ponder on the words of the modern day prophets who lead this church I have a feeling inside me that I can't quite explain. It is so deep and I just know, I know that the words of the scriptures and prophets have to be true and I can not deny it. I love my savior and father in heaven and nothing makes me happier than being close to them. Nothing brings me closer to them than living the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in my church through serving the other members. The main way that I serve them is by praying for them. I love the members of this church and I know that my heavenly father loves them along with all of his children. I want the best for the people of this church and I know that heavenly father answers prayers. Another way that I am living my faith is by deciding to serve as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to serve in the Portugal, Lisbon mission and am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to serve the Lord and the people of Portugal and share my love of this gospel and my knowledge of its truthfulness with them.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is perfect. He knows us perfectly and loves us perfectly and how to help us become the best that we can be perfectly. We are created in his image and so he has a body like ours. Our heavenly father is merciful and loves all of his children and he wants us to return to live with him. His goal is to "bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man" (Moses 1:39). He wants to help us and if we trust in him he will support us in our trials and will bring us more joy than we could ever imagine. Show more Show less
