Hi I'm Annica Woolley

Hi! I grew up in a small town in northern Idaho and learned to love it! I am currently a full-time student. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi, I'm Annica! I'm currently a full-time student studying Neuroscience. I'm a summer gal who would love to just live on the lake. I love to travel to new places, hike, play tennis, read, and spend time with my family and friends. I will be leaving to serve the Lord through a full-time mission this spring (2016).

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but I still had to make the decision to join and continue to be a member of the church, myself. I have done so because of my testimony of Jesus Christ. I know that no matter how much I mess up, He will always love me and allow me to move past my mistakes. He has unconditional love for every person. I feel His love for me so strongly when I pray to Him, when I read the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and when I apply what is taught in those books into my own life. My love for Christ convinced me to serve a full-time mission so that I could teach others how much He loves them and wants them to understand their purpose on earth.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite things about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the emphasis placed on living your faith every day. One of the best ways to do this is by following the example of Jesus Christ and serving others. I have been so blessed because the people that I attend church with live close to me, so I have the opportunity to serve them and in turn be served by them. Going to church blesses me in so many ways! When I go, I feel happier, more hopeful, and more loved for the entire week. This happens because I learn about Christ's gospel and also because of the love shown to me by the people I go to church with. I get to help plan activities for this group of young, single adults so that we can all have fun together and get to know each other. Some of the events I have helped to plan are bowling nights, bonfires, and game nights.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Annica Woolley
Mormons believe that families are an important part of God's plan, and that we are put in our particular families on purpose. We do not have to say goodbye to those we love once they die because God has provided a way that we can be with them forever. The way that God provided was given to the prophet Joseph Smith when he restored Christ's church. It is available to anyone who chooses to follow Christ and is made possible through sacred ordinances that happen in God's temples. Show more Show less
