Hi I'm Annie

I'm a graphic designer and craftaholic. I'm obsessed with skiing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently got married and it has been the best decision I have ever made. I love my husband and I love that we get to do everything together! Especially skiing, being outdoors, and and going on adventures. Aside from the outdoorsy stuff, I love, love, love art. I am a graphic designer and an artist and I love creating stuff. I also love photography and making videos. I'm not the best at either, but I have fun doing it and love documenting our life and making memories.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, so going to church has been a thing I have always done every Sunday. However, there was a time in my life that I would skip meetings or classes. I took the 3 hour block each Sunday for granted and felt like I didn't really have a testimony. I never actually fell away or thought badly of the church, I just went because I had to and would feel guilty if I didn't go. I had a hard time listening in classes and feeling the spirit. During my junior year at BYU, my ward did a Book of Mormon challenge. At this point of my life, I hadn't ever finished the Book of Mormon. I had also just started dating my husband and he had such a strong testimony and he inspired me to strengthen mine because I felt like mine was so dismal and weak. I finished it in 3 months and after I finished it, I prayed. I was overcome with the spirit and I knew that the church was true and that this book was true. I also was given confirmation that I was to marry my husband. And now that I am married and have gone through the temple, I have never felt more blessed and happy. I am a Mormon because I know how much I can be blessed if I live the gospel each and every day.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I get to help teach the 2-3 year olds in nursery! Some people consider it "babysitting" but I see it as an opportunity to serve others in my ward by teaching their children about the gospel. Along with my calling in nursery, I also visit teach some of the women in my ward once a month. I get to share a quick spiritual message with them as well as get to know them and their families. This has helped me to become more social and has helped me get to know more people in the ward.
