Hi I'm Hannah

I've grown up in Eastern Idaho my whole life. I'm a theatre performance major at BYU-Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student and I study theatre performance. I was the leading lady in a high school musical my junior year. I love horseback riding, writing stories, singing, and listening to my sister play her cello.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel is true. This gospel has been restored by Jesus Christ's hand. The most wonderful thing to me about this church is the fact that no matter what has happened in your life, there's always hope for you and another chance. Christ atoned for our sins so we can become clean again through repentance and begin to change our lives so we can move on. It's a beautiful thing. I've learned through my own mistakes that Heavenly Father loves us more than we can even fathom and that he wants us to return to Him someday and that's why He sent His son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love talking with the older people in my church and learning a lot about them. I love spending time with the youth in my ward and setting an example for them. I love to share with people how much Heavenly Father loves them because I know He loves everyone of us. I love to share the gospel with everyone I meet, if I can.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Hannah
As members of the church and by knowing the true gospel, we are encouraged to serve a mission because we need to spread the word that God loves everyone and we have a beautiful message of redemption for everyone. Second chances are awesome, but especially for those of us who want to forget our past sins and move on in life feeling like a new person. I am serving a mission this coming summer because I want to teach people why they are here and what there life mission is. Because God gives us agency, it's not required for everyone to serve a mission because he will not force us to do anything we are uncomfortable with. We are simply instruments in His hands when we do sacrifice our time to go serve Him and bring his sons and daughters back to the knowledge of the gospel. We are blessed when we serve Him.
