Hi I'm Anna

I am a Mormon and I love it!

About Me

I love to go on hikes and see all of the beauty that the earth has to offer us. I also love to be with kids. I spend a lot of my time playing with them. They are always so much fun to be around and can always make me smile. Some other things that I love to do is read, watch movies, and cook.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel so much! I have been a member most of my life, my mom joined the church when I was just 2 years old, so I grew up with the gospel. It was not until the summer before my senior year of high school though before I became fully converted into the gospel. I used to just live my life how I was suppose to, but I didn't really care. Then I decided that I wanted to learn for myself if this gospel really was the true and the only fully restored gospel on this earth. To figure this out I read the Book of Mormon. I read the whole thing and then I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if this was really the true church. Right while I was praying I received my answer. I felt a feeling of peace come over me, and knew that this was the true church. Since that day I try my hardest to live the gospel and do things that will make the Lord proud. I love our Savior, because he is always there for us. Even though times do get hard, he never leaves us. We have to be willing to let him in and be willing to accept his blessings that he has for us. He will always bless us and help us out through our hard times. I know that this is true. I also know that Joseph Smith did restore the gospel on this earth and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that the Bible is also the word of God. I love this Gospel so much. The Lord always helps me in my everyday life, and I know that we will return to be with him one day, with our families, if we live worthily and believe in God.

How I live my faith

I help out with my schools institute program. This is a place that you can go to further understand and learn about the LDS church. I help with the activities they do and participate in the lessons they teach. I am a ward missionary in my church. That means I help teach people about the gospel to help them better understand why we are here, and that someone is their for them.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Anna
We like to compare our faith as being like a seed. In order for the seed to grow, you need to nourish it, give it water, sun, and care for it. Just like faith. You need to always work at it. Faith is not gained over night and it will not always stay with you if you do not practice with it. You need to always work on it by studying the scriptures, praying often, and have that desire to believe in Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
