Hi I'm Abby

I grew up in Lava Hot Springs, Idaho. I am a Mormon. I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I just completed my first year of college. I want to pursue a career in the medical field, but as of right now, I am not completely sure what. I enjoy doing activities outside: golfing, swimming, biking, and hiking. I also love music. I love to sing and I play the piano a little bit. I have three brothers and one sister. My older sister died when she was a baby. I know that my sister is in a good place and I know that I will see her again. I can not wait for that day. My family is so important to me. I am so happy to be born into a family as great as this. They are my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I love the gospel with everything in me. It gives me standards and values to live by and because of the church I am a better person. I know Heavenly Father is a loving God, and wants us all back to live with him. Because of that Jesus Christ came to the Earth and suffered for all of our sins. He provided a way for us to make it back to live with him. I have felt the Spirit testify to me that the teachings of this church are true. The Book of Mormon is the most correct book on this Earth and I love it. It helps me solve problems and answers questions that I have in my life. I know that any person who asks Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon is true or any other teaching will get the same answer from the Spirit. Without a doubt, I know it is true. I love this gospel. I love the Lord. I love that I am a Mormon; a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

When I was a youth, I was in leadership positions where I helped plan activities for other youth. This was a huge character building opportunity for me because I learn a ton of leadership skills. I loved serving the youth and the friendships I made because of it. Right now I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have looked forward to this time in my life for years, and the moment is finally here. As a missionary, I share with others about my faith, and what we believe. I believe that this church is true more than anything. It helps me make correct decisions by living good morals and values. This gospel of Jesus Christ provides a way for me to get back to Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ provided a way for every single one of us to repent of our sins and become perfect as he is. I love this gospel with all of my heart, and because of this reason, I am dedicating 18 months of my life completely to serve Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I will be sharing this message with others because I love the Lord and I love the people. I want others to know about this message.
