Hi I'm Anne

I love traveling, learning, and meeting new people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year of school at BYU and I absolutely loved it. I love school and learning and experiencing all the new things college has to offer. I am now currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to serve in the Texas McAllen mission speaking Spanish. I love my mission. I love teaching and serving and helping others come unto Christ. I have two older sisters and a younger brother. I love spending time with my family, especially when we travel. I recently traveled to Kenya where I did humanitarian work for two weeks. I loved meeting the people there and serving them. I volunteer at a learning center for kids struggling in school. I love working with the kids and helping them succeed in school. Serving is one of my favorite things to do.

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my eighteen years of life thus far, I've come to find that life can be rather trying. There are countless trials and heart aches that we face and it can be discouraging and disappointing. I have found that I am happiest when I am relying on the Savior and His Atonement. I truly believe that the way to happiness is through Jesus Christ. I know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who wants us to succeed and be happy. I choose to follow His gospel because I know that it is pleasing to God and I feel happier when I am living His gospel. I feel happier and more optimistic and like life has a purpose. I know that if we but rely on Christ to comfort us and strengthen us through our trials we will come out more successful and we can experience the true happiness that God has in store for us.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith in a very palpable way - through serving as a full time missionary. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ and help them find happiness through Him and His Atonement. I strive to lift up those around me, both members and nonmembers, as I go about serving and teaching his gospel. Each Sunday I go to church where I am strengthened by the ward members around me and the testimonies they share. I participate in church by sharing my own experiences and testimony. I also have spent a lot of time volunteering in the community. I strongly believe that there are people everywhere who are in need our love and support and God would have me strive to help them. I try to be optimistic and happy so that others can find happiness as well.
