Hi I'm Abby

I'm from Southern California and I'm studying business at BYU. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of three kids, and I love my family more than anything. I love to hike and be outdoors. I love to read all kinds of books. I love to swim and snorkel at the beach. I love to cook. I love to sing and listen to music. Right now I am getting ready to start my third year of college, and am having the time of my life living here in Provo, Utah while I attend BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a sure testimony that the Gospel is true, that it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifice that He made for me, and every one of us. I have been so blessed in my life with an amazing family and opportunities to learn and to grow. Nothing brings me more joy than the knowledge that I can be with my family forever. Through the power of the Holy Ghost, I have felt in my heart that Jesus is my Savior, and that both He and our Father in Heaven love me. I know that if I am faithful and keep the commandments, I will be able to return and live with them someday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to emulate Jesus Christ. I try to follow His example of service and love every day. At church, I am responsible for planning and organizing weekly activities for a group of college-age men and women with the goal of helping us get to know each other, learn from each other, and help each other come closer to Christ.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I know that there is a God because I can feel His love for me. He has blessed us with so much, from this beautiful Earth to live on, to truly miraculous bodies that allow us to do so much, to loving families, and I know that He wants the best for each one of us. I have prayed to know whether He is real, and I have felt in my heart that He is. Show more Show less
