Hi I'm Abby

I love the outdoors, cookies and ice cream, and my huge family. I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

If you've ever taken the color test, you'll understand when I say I have a Red, Yellow, and Blue personality. I love creating things and being spontaneous and having fun, but I also love spending quality time with the people I love the most. Some of my other passions include music, nature, and the gospel of Jesus Christ!! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I know that this gospel is true, and it makes me SO HAPPY. :) I was born into the church, but there came a point in my life when I wanted to know for myself that the gospel of Jesus Christ was true. So, I decided to do what it says in the Book of Mormon in Alma 32:27, and "experiment upon the word". I started actually applying what I'd been taught all my life, by studying the scriptures daily, and really praying to my Heavenly Father, and asking Him to let me know it was true. I did not see a vision, or angels, but I felt a witness from the Spirit of God, and I've felt that over and over and over again in my life. Not only that, but because I keep the commandments and live the gospel, I am so happy. :) That is how I KNOW that God lives. I know He hears and answers all of our prayers, and that He knows us individually, and loves us infinitely. That's why He sent His son Jesus Christ to this earth. Because we are His sons and daughters, and HE LOVES US!!! Isn't that great?! And through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can live with our families eternally! I have an older brother who passed away, and I know that I will see him again someday! I feel a peace and a wholeness because I live the gospel, and it makes me a better person, and it makes me genuinely happy. That's why I'm a Mormon. :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply doing what God asks of us by keeping the commandments. I attend church weekly and partake of the Sacrament, study the scriptures and pray daily. I try to share my testimony of this gospel by who I am and how I live. :)

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

The church is growing because the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. It brings light and happiness to peoples' lives, and they find purpose and a wholeness and a relationship with our Father in Heaven. They find real peace and joy, and they find that through the power of Jesus Christ, they can change and become better--become more like Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
