Hi I'm Savannah Hamann

I am from America, i live in Washington, and i am an average teenage girl, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Savannah and i am a Mormon. I am the fourth child of five in my family, and i love animals, sports, and music. Dogs are my absolute favorite. I love to play the trombone, and I am in my high school jazz band. I have been playing the trombone since fifth grade and I love it! In my community I am active in youth suicide prevention, I have talked to city officials and have participated in school activities to bring about the awareness of suicide to the public. I absolutely love my family, they mean the world to me, and I love spending time with them. I hope to be able to go to BYU-Provo when I graduate high school, and I would like to be a middle school physical education teacher, and basketball coach for a high school. I have been active in basketball since third grade, and currently am on the varsity team for my high school.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a member of this church because i truly believe that this is the true church. i know for a fact that Joseph Smith really did see Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. and i know that there is a living prophet on the earth today and he can and does recieve true revelation from God. this church gives me hope and a sense of security for not only this life but in the life to come. without the knowledge that we learn in this church we can not live with our Father in Heaven. this is the true church, and if you ernestly pray and ask if this church is true, you will recieve personal revelation that it is. Knowing that i can be with my family forever is such a blessing, because i love my family. I know that this church is true. I also know that you will recieve blessings as soon as you open your heart to the gosple. Heavenly Father is waiting to bless you, the windows of Heaven will open and pour out blessings on you. i know this church is true. i know that we truely can be with our families forever. I leave these things with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I love living the gosple because of all the blessings that come from it. Going through day to day stuff is stressfull, but having the gosple in my life eases my burdens. Like I said previously, i am very active in my community's suicide prevention of the youth. I have participated in city meetings, and school activities where we go and talk in classes to help teach kids about suicide. Being a member of this church there is such a large emphasis on individual worth, and when talking on suicide that knowledge is extreamly important. Being in high school there are a lot of things that can get you down but being a member of this church and the knowledge that I know from it really helps with dealing with the struggles of life. I am currently a youth leader for the young womens program in my ward. I love it! every sunday and wednesday I get to see the most amazing girls who truly are examples, to everyone. i have had the opportunity to see the change that this church can have on someones life, and it has always been an extreamly positive change. The joy and reliefe i see in the people's eyes says it all. this is a remarkable church.
