Hi I'm Annalee

I'm a student, a daughter, and a sister. I love to laugh. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest daughter of 6 kids. I am currently attending college at BYU-Idaho, I absolutely love this school. I am working on being a Medical Assistant, love working with and helping people. I love being outdoors and also I love sports, soccer, basketball, tennis, etc... I am attending college at BYU-Idaho, I am loving it so much! I love a good book. I love to cook, anything from meals to dessert. I love trying new things and I am trying to get out of my shell more. I love to laugh and have a good time. I enjoy spending time with my family, whether we are doing an activity or just sitting around talking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel has changed my life. I love it with all my heart and I know that the things that it teaches are true. I know that our Heavenly Father sent his beloved son, our brother and Savior, Jesus Christ to this earth to atone for all the sins and sorrows of this world. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to a 14 year old boy in a grove of trees and answered his question of which church to join. Through that boy, Joseph Smith helped restore The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints back to the earth. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each and everyone of us more than we can comprehend. I know that families can be together forever if sealed in the holy temples of the lord, by and through the priesthood power. I know that I will see my loved ones again that have passed on, the plan of salvation has helped me this and understand this. I know that the plan of salvation is true and that God has a plan for everyone of us. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is our true and living prophet today on this earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book, I have had it testified to me through reading it and prayer. I know that we were sent to this earth for a reason, to be tested and tried. I know Heavenly Father doesn't give us any trial that we can't handle and that trials help build you to how you can become. I know that our prayers are heard and answered by our loving Heavenly Father. Sometimes the answer we want isn't the answer we receive or not answered in the time we want. God really does know what we need and when we need it, so we need to be patient and wait for his answer and his timing. I know that we are all children, sons and daughters of God. I know that the Holy Ghost can be our constant companion and will help us through our journey in mortality. I know that we are never alone, God is always there to help and comfort us though the hard times and the good times. I know this church is true!

How I live my faith

Each day I try to reach out and make someones day brighter and better. It could be as simple as a smile or a "hello". Also I am working on and incorporating Christ like attributes in my life each and everyday. I also live my faith by helping with Family History work and visiting teaching. I am a Family History Consultant in my word, I have learned a lot about my ancestors personally. I have grown to love and find joy in seeking and learning about my the people that have come before me.
