Hi I'm Hannah

I was raised in Massachusetts. I'm studying art at BYU-Idaho. I'm preparing to serve a mission in Hungary! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Massachusetts, but always had a desire to see the world. As soon as I could I started crossing countries off my list. So far I've been a tourist in Mexico and Spain, and an English teacher in China. Soon I will be a full time missionary in the Hungary, Budapest mission! In my travels I have felt an overwhelming love for the people of all cultures and been amazed at the friendships that can blossom in spite of the language barrier. I also love creating art in any possible medium. I am currently studying art at BYU-Idaho and am excited to see how I can expand my talents and passion for creation.

Why I am a Mormon

I have felt Christ's love in my life. I know that He is my Savior. I know that because He died for the sins of the world, I have been made clean and have the potential to become perfected through Him. The simple beauty of His teachings show me how I can live to find pure joy. I have felt what it is like to not have Him in my life. I know that whatever I needed to give up to have His spirit with me, was worth it. It was not difficult to give up my own selfishness, because the blessings are tenfold. Heavenly Father helped me recognize that I have so much potential, and I live His gospel so I can reach it. I am a Mormon because I cannot do it on my own. I am a Mormon because He has so much more in store for me than I have for myself.

How I live my faith

Living in Massachusetts there are not many Mormons. I am definitely in the minority. But I have not found this to be a hindrance but rather a blessing. I have been able to question my beliefs and come to know for myself that the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are inspired revelations from Heavenly Father. I often have friends and co-workers ask me about my life style and love to tell people why I have chosen to live this way. It is not always the popular life style but it does bring me the most happiness and allows me to live my life without any regrets.
