Hi I'm Abby

I grew up in Utah. I'm serving a mission in Chile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sister, daughter, friend, amateur guitarist, and professional cookie-baker. I love laughing, sunshine, being with my family, wearing dresses, painting pictures and learning new things.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the church, so I grew up going to church and learning about the gospel. I always felt happy when I learned about Jesus, and I believed the things I was taught. It wasn't until my mid-teens that I decided I wanted to really KNOW for myself if the gospel was true, and if it was what I wanted to base my life on. So I prayed to my Heavenly Father. My answer didn't come all at once. I just kept praying every day, reading my scriptures, spending time with my family, listening to uplifting music, and doing things that made me feel close to God and Jesus Christ. Then I realized I had been developing a testimony all along. I know that God loves me and that Jesus loves me and that they want what's best for me. I know that Jesus died for me so I could overcome my challenges and sins and eventually live with Him and with my family forever. I know the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God, and that living by its teachings will bring true happiness.

How I live my faith

I am currently living in Santiago, Chile, as a full-time missionary, where I devote all my time to serving others and teaching them about Jesus Christ.
