Hi I'm Hannah

I am a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I love white roses. Jesus Christ is my Savior and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am nineteen years old and I live in Blackfoot, Idaho. One of my favorite hobbies is to paint. It is rewarding to start with a vision and a blank canvas, then create the art. I love dogs. I was the kid that begged my parents to get another dog even though we already had one. I love exercising, and to be outdoors. After my mission, I plan to go on a big hiking trip with my dad. I got called to serve in the Washington D.C. South mission! My goal for my mission is to lose myself in the work so that I can be a faithful servant of the Lord. I am really looking forward to meeting and building relationships with the people that live there. I went to a year of college at BYU-H and loved it! The "aloha spirit" is real and it is a special place.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was around six or seven years old, I attended a baptism of a boy that lived in the same small town as me. He was ten and his name was TJ. After he was baptized, all of the primary kids were asked to go to the front and sing "I am a Child of God". When we were all singing, I felt a really powerful feeling inside of me and I started to cry. I didn't understand why I was crying because I was so happy! That is the first vivid memory that I have of feeling the Spirit and the love that God has for me, His child. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is established by God, and it is the only way to have eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

I have known that this gospel is true ever since I was a little girl, however, I have come to realize that this knowledge is not enough. Richard G. Scott declared that "A knowledge of truth is of little value unless we apply it in making correct decisions." The happiest moments of my life have occured when I am in tune with the Lord's will. The funny thing, is that the circumstances of my life during the happy times were no different then when I was sad and unsatisfied. What differentiated between how I felt was how I chose to live the gospel. I didn't just know it, I lived it. Satan tries to make living the gospel seem like a hard task, and bombards us with tempation and worldliness to distract from what will bring true and lasting happiness. I am serving a mission in a few weeks, and I am really happy that I get to share a gospel that has brought me true joy, with other people. I hope that through the knowledge of the gospel I have and I am gaining, I can make correct choices in order for me to live the gospel that I will be teaching to others.
