Hi I'm Savannah

I am aspiring to be a high school history teacher, I love Mexican food, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I've spent most of my life growing up in Utah. I love to be outside, especially up a canyon. I love reading, watching movies, eating, board games, and history. I'm going to college right now to become a high school history teacher someday. I am the oldest of 5 siblings and my family is just amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this gospel. A few years ago in my awkward middle school/high school phase of trying to figure out who I am and what I'm doing with my life I started to question my being a member of this church. I mean, there are many other religions out there and many of them are great religions. As I thought about it, I realized I didn't need to look any further. My Heavenly Father had given me the answer already throughout my whole life. Through His constant answering of my prayers, His endless patience with my endless questions, and through the blessings of my friends and family. I love how we are allowed to question things and I love being able to kneel down in prayer and ask the Lord these questions. I can bear witness that this gospel is the one religion on earth that has the fullness of truth. Many other religions have some truths, but they don't have all of it. Without the love, mercy, and the Atonement of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ I would be very lost and very broken. The Lord loves us and knows us each individually. I am a Mormon because I have recieved a personal witness that this is the Church of Christ, the only complete one here on the earth, and I can never deny it.

How I live my faith

The best way I've found to live my faith is really just to do what I preach. I try to be a good person and be aware of those around me. I want everyone to know that they are loved and that God is good. I have been a full time missionary for the church serving in Honduras, which was awesome. And I have have a wide variety of duties within the church including teaching the youth and organizing events.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Savannah
No one is technically "required" to serve a mission. It is strongly encouraged for the men as part of their responsibilities in the church and the women are also encouraged if they feel inclined to serve. The biggest indication of whether someone should or should not serve a mission is by kneeling in prayer and asking for personal revelation from our Heavenly Father. I went on a mission because I knelt down and asked God if he needed me to serve, for me the answer was a clear yes. That is not the same answer for everyone else and that is just fine.
