Hi I'm Hannah Webber

I am a Mormon. I live in Utah and as of October 22, 2014, I will be leaving my home to serve as a missionary in Boston, MA.

About Me

I was born in Spokane, Washington in 1995. I am the third of six children; one boy and five girls. I've loved growing up with four sisters because it's taught me unconditional love, patience, and gratitude. I graduated from Tooele High School in May 2014, where I served as the Student Body President. I love politics and leadership, and serving on Student Council for four years at my high school has led me to gain an even deeper appreciation for government, especially in The United States. I love to sing and I have done so since I was a little girl. I also love to play the guitar and the piano, even though I am a bit amateur. Anything involving music draws me in. I also love sports! I've played basketball and volleyball for my school for the past four years and I've loved competing and staying fit. I also enjoy weightlifting and just exercising on a regular basis. As of October 22, 2014, I will be set apart as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to serve in Boston, Massachusetts and I will preach the gospel in the Spanish language. I am so excited to learn Spanish! After my mission, I plan on attending Brigham Young University. My dream in life is to travel the world doing humanitarian work and serving others because helping others makes me happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. One of my favorite aspects of The Mormon faith is how we believe that WE CAN BE FORGIVEN. No one on this earth is perfect. I, myself, have made many mistakes, but each time I mess up, I know I can rely of Jesus Christ to make me whole again. I know there is no mistake too big for Him. He wants us to be happy, and after all, "life is to be enjoyed, not endured." Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has taught me to see everyone on the same level. Not one of us better than or worse than any other. My faith in God has taught me to see others through rose-colored glasses, and helped me come to the realization that we are all just trying to be our best. Everyone needs a little love, and by serving others and refraining from judging others, I can become more and more like Jesus Christ each day. That is my ultimate goal; to be like Him. The most important thing to me is to accept others for who they are and what they believe. If someone disagrees with me and my beliefs, that is okay. We are each different. We are all human. I just hope I can be an instrument in God's hands by sharing love and happiness with others. I am a Mormon. I am proud to be a Mormon and I know this church can bring true joy to those who will accept His great message.

How I live my faith

I have served in various leadership positions in my church. I've served as a youth leader, where I would conduct lessons, meet with the bishop of my church, and help in serving others. Lately, I have been called to serve as a missionary in my ward. I have gone out with the missionaries serving in my area very often to teach lessons to those investigating our church, provide service, and visit others. As well as these callings, I live my faith through song. I am frequently asked to sing, along with my sisters or father, at funerals, church activities/events, sacrament meetings, etc. I think that one of the best ways I can share my faith and beliefs is through music. Each time I sing, I feel as if I am testifying to the world of Jesus Christ and His church. Another way I have lived my faith through the years is participating in service events, in my church, and around my community. Serving on Student Council in high school presented me with many opportunities to help others and give of my time, efforts, and energy. Participating in events such as Operation Christmas, where we provide Christmas gifts, food, and a tree to needy families in my community, helping the elderly, planning school activities and events has taught me to find happiness in helping someone else. Service is a huge part of my faith and my life, and I hope to be able to seek out opportunities to serve others for the rest of my life.
