Hi I'm Hannah Johnson

I am a musician, musicologist, and future professor. I love fashion and art. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music -- especially music history. I plan to someday write textbooks about all kinds of music, from classical to pop. My dream is to be a professor at a highly-esteemed university. I currently attend BYU, getting my MA in musicology, but I previously got my Bachelor's in Choral Education from the same school. I love to create art through what I wear; I never wear the same outfit twice. I'm originally from Minnesota, so I'm an avid Twins fan. In my spare time I write music, read, and hang out with friends in my singles ward.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I like knowing that there is a plan for me as both an individual daughter of God as well as a member of a great human family. I love knowing that I have the potential to someday receive all that the Father has if I live righteously. I also love the relationships, benefits, and peace of mind that come with this Gospel. There are a lot of very difficult situations that I have avoided simply by following the commandments and remaining active in the church. I love knowing that I have an Older Brother named Jesus Christ, who loved me enough to atone for my sins. I love feeling the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I love serving. I love studying the scriptures. I love knowing that families can be together forever. The Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me a happy person.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through music. I am currently called as the ward music chair, which means I get to organize special musical numbers for our meetings. I am a firm believer that you can access the spirit and bear your testimony of the gospel through music. I feel like I have come closer to God by singing hymns with others in my ward in choir, but also through making music outside of regular church meetings that is still uplifting and spiritually powerful.
