Hi I'm Anna

I'm from Chicago. I've lived in New York, Taiwan, and Denmark. I'm a full-time missionary, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I've moved a bunch of times in my life and have learned a lot from that. I play the violin, run, and love eating unhealthy food. I'm a student at BYU majoring in communications. I really like being with friends and laughing super hard. We watch movies, go on hikes, and eat. I love reading books and writing letters to friends on missions. Since I've moved so much, I've developed a love for traveling and seeing the world. I have fantastic parents and two awesome older sisters who recently got married in the temple, and I have a little black dog named Larry. I love my family more than anything else. I want to go see the London Symphony Orchestra and Rio de Janerio some day (even though they're on opposite ends of the world) and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

There is no other way to describe why I am a Mormon than the fact that I love Christ and I love my Heavenly Father. I want to be like them and follow Christ's righteous example so that I can return to live with my Father in Heaven one day. I know it is true more than anything else in the world. Having the Book of Mormon and being aware of Heavenly Father's love for me is what gets me through the struggles and makes me appreciate the triumphs.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the Alpine German-Speaking mission. It covers the southern part of Germany, Austria, German Switzerland, and a tiny bit of Italy. Serving is the best decision I have ever made because I literally get to spend all day every day for 18 months doing the Lords Work. I get to meet people every day and share my testimony with them about the truthfulness of this gospel. As part of my mission, I get an hour of personal study every day where I study the scriptures, Preach My Gospel, and other materials that teach gospel principles. I have been developing a strong realtionship with my Father in Heaven before and during my mission, and I know that He is aware of me and wants me to be happy.
