Hi I'm Paige Anderson

I love my family and exploring nature with them. I hope to teach music one day. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play piano and sing. I love all types of sports but most especially volleyball and softball. I often go camping and hiking with my family as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon, and I cannot deny that it is all truth. I know that God spoke to His prophets so many years ago through the scriptures because I have felt of His loving guidance as I have read His words. I know that He has a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson who speaks with even more loving guidance fit for our understanding in the world today. Heavenly Father has provided a plan for all of us. I know He loves us and gives all the help He can as we humble ourselves to change for the better, by putting all our faith in Christ. I know that my family is eternal, because my parents were sealed for time and all eternity in the temple and house of God. God is our Heavenly Father. We are His children, and this life on earth is preparing us to again, become an eternal family with God. This is all made possible by Jesus Chirst, without Him there would be no way to gain eternal happiness. He is the only way, and His hand is always stretched out to us. I know that as I have reached for his love and mercy in seeking forgiveness and strength to change, He has given me. It's not the easiest path, but salvation is made to be won. It's a continual, life-long process of repenting and trusting in Christ to become like Him. I know that He will freely give to those that have a desire (full purpose in heart) to be made clean again. He has for me. I love my Savior and I know that He loves me. I am so grateful to have learned these truths, to give me hope and meaning in life. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church that Christ first brought to the earth. I know that I has been restored to bring God's children to once again progress towards salvation together. Why? because he loves us.

How I live my faith

I have played the piano for church services at times for the congregational hymns and for the choir and it has always been an uplifting experience. Singing and playing songs of praise has brought me closer to Heavenly Father and His Son and my fellow church members. Volunteering, making friends, and building one another up in support, love and service has been so strong in all the places I have attended an LDS church. At college, at home and even just visiting random areas, there is always a loving welcome filled with members who are ready to help and give all they can and more. I know that it's because we all progress together through our Savior, Jesus Christ.
