Hi I'm Abby Barlocker

I love dragonflies, the warm sunshine, and my fun-loving family. Currently I am serving a mission in Colorado, Fort Collins.

About Me

I am the middle child of nine, and I love my BIG family! I grew up in the central valley of California where it is nice and hot. I attended Brigham Young University-Idaho for a year before heading off for a mission in Fort Collins, Colorado (aka the best mission EVER) for 18 months. I love being out in nature, whether it be hiking in the mountains or wakeboarding at the lake. I love spending time with my family, especially at Lake Powell because it is the BEST place to be!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church, but more importantly it has changed who I am. I was baptized when I was eight years old, but I was truly converted to the gospel later in my life. I become converted from different experiences that showed me that God knows me, He cares about me, and He loves me. I also have some pretty awesome parents that taught me through their examples. I have gained a testimony that God gives us commandments because He LOVES us. He is always watching over us, and He wants what is best for His children. I know that as I align my will with His I will be blessed with safety and love. I am a Mormon because living the gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the light of Christ with others whether that be by my example or through words. I have daily scripture study and personal prayer to strengthen my own testimony of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I go to church each Sunday and partake of the sacrament. I love how we are able to recommit each and every week to the covenants we have made to our loving Heavenly Father.
