Hi I'm Hannah Cantrell

I am from Olympia Washington. I love to sew and show miniature horses. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle child of three, with an older sister and a younger brother. I like to ride and compete with horses, but my passion is carting the feisty mini's. I was a member of my high schools equestrian team where I got the opportunity to ride drill. I was also involved in 4-H for 11 years, primarily in the horse department but I also participated in the sewing department. I love to sew I have been watching my Mom and Grandma sew my entire life, but did not start until I was about 14. Since then I have made 3 formal dresses, a blouse, three skirts, a blazer and re made a 1980's formal into a modern one.

Why I am a Mormon

As I mentioned I have grown up in the church, but I do have a personally testimony of its truthfullness. There has always been a peace that comes when you are at church or a church activity that can not be found any where else. I feel my Heavenly Fathers love and know that is why he gave us his son who suffered on our behalf also because he loved us. I know that if we repent and strive to be better our sins are forgiven and we will get the blessing of living with our Father in Heaven once again. I also do not doubt that the promptings of a 14 year old boy led him to restore this gospel. That Joseph Smith was given the aid needed to translate the Book of Mormon for our study now. I also know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet on this earth today who is called of God. Most importantly for me I find comfort and purpose in knowing that my earthly family can be together forever because of the wonderful blessing of temple sealings.

How I live my faith

As a youth I was able to attend all 4 years of young women's camp as a camper and then got the amazing opportunity to be a youth camp leader( youth counselor) my last two years. I have also served as president and a counselor in the young women's program. I am currently serving my mission. I get to go serve the people of Kazakhstan for a year and a half and I am very excited.
