Hi I'm Savannah

I love music, I want to become a teacher, and I love my big family! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am now a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I LOVE this Gospel! I love music (especially Owl City and David Archuleta!). I graduated high school and completed one year of college...whew! I LOVE singing and playing the piano (though not always in public:) I am a huge black- and- white- movie -watcher. I also love travelling and being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

My family have been members of the church for a few generations and so I grew up with the Gospel since I was born. Every week we went to all of the church meetings and I just went because my parents taught us that was the right thing to do. I have always known that the church is the only true church upon the earth because I always felt like home when I go. Everything that is taught at church seems familiar and makes sense. Everyone is so nice. I remember when I would stay home from church because I didn't feel well, I would feel so empty. I felt like I was missing out on something. The Gospel to me, makes me feel that I have a purpose. We do have a purpose. All of us. The Gospel of Jesus Christ lets us know who we are. We are children of Heavenly Father who created the Universe! We are destined to be like Him. He wants us to be happy, and in order for us to be happy and to become like Him, we have to obey the things that He tells us. He even sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to set the Example of how we can be like Him. Heavenly Father is a merciful, just, loving God who knows each and every one of us personally. We have to put our trust in Him that if we follow Him by living the Gospel, that He will provide everything we need to get back to Him. This means that He will let us go through some of the experiences and trials and opportunities and obstacles that we need to grow and increase our faith in Him, His son Jesus Christ, and in the Atonement. This is why I am a member of His church. I want to be happy FOREVER! I want to follow the things that He tells us (through His servants the prophets like President Thomas S. Monson, and through reading the scriptures and conference talks) that tell us what He needs us to do, and what we need to change to come closer to Him. I know this is the true church. I know Heavenly Father and His beloved son Jesus Christ live. I know they want what is best for us. All of us. I love this gospel.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the blessing of being a full time missionary, serving in Washington! I love learning more about the Gospel, and sharing what I know to others who are searching for eternal happiness and direction in their lives! I get to share with them that our Father in Heaven loves them! I love to go to church with my family. My ward at home is so welcoming and everyone feels like family.
