Hi I'm Abbie

I'm a nursing student. I'm obsessed with ice cream. I hope to travel the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in small-town Idaho, but I'm a city girl at heart. I am currently in nursing school and I absolutely love it. I find so much joy in caring for people and helping them heal. I love hanging out with my roommates, watching movies, running in the rain, taking afternoon naps on my porch swing, eating ice cream out of the carton, playing with my puppy, spending time with my little sis, road trips, and dreaming of traveling the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I truly cannot imagine my life without this church. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed my life in countless ways. I was raised in a loving home with parents strong in this church. As a young teenager I followed my parent's example, but I occasionally struggled finding my own testimony. With the support of my incredible parents, church leaders, and friends I was able to recognize that there is no other church on this earth that can bring so much peace, comfort, and happiness. I know that my Heavenly Father is aware of me and loves me on a personal level. I have been greatly blessed as He has guided me through every major decision I have made in my life. I would not be where I am today without the love and sacrifice of my Savior Jesus Christ. There is nothing more important to me than this Gospel. It brings indescribable happiness to those who life and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Words cannot express my love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

As a college student, I attend religion classes where I can become spiritually uplifted as I learn more about the Book of Mormon, other scriptural resources, and the words of the Prophet. In my YSA (young single adult) student ward I teach monthly lessons directed toward the women of this church. I seek opportunities to serve others through the Relief Society-an international women's organization focused on providing charity and love to all those in need. I am able to attend the temple frequently as I am blessed to have one very close to me. I strive every day to live the teachings of Jesus Christ.
