Hi I'm Hanna Howard

I'm a country girl headed to the land Down Under. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently on my way to serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Australia where I will be for 18 months! Some of my other interests are anything to do with athletics! I am huge golfer but I love anything sports! I love music as well, any kind really, I love singing and playing the piano with my sisters and brother! I love being outdoors, hiking, fishing, camping, even mowing lawns anything outdoors I am there! I just love to have fun! and I am always up for a challenge! and I love spending time with my family!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I was "born into the Mormon church" meaning my parents are members and taught us the ways of the gospel from the time we were little children, but they still gave me the choice to find out for myself if it was what I believed. I have found over the course of my young life that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed me in every way and with everything I need to weather the storms of life. As I have read The Book of Mormon I know it gives me more knowledge and power to face my challenges! I didn't always know that the LDS faith was true or not, but after I spent a long while studying the scriptures and going to church I started to notice that my life started to change, and when I prayed to God to help me to know if what I was doing was right and if the teachings of The Book of Mormon are true I didn't get a big answer or necessarily know straight away but I felt a peace come into my life, and felt joy that is beyond description! And that was my answer! The peace of mind and reassurance I feel every time I go to church or read the scriptures or just try to be more like Jesus Christ was and is the answer I needed. I now know for myself that its all true! I know that all the happiness I feel in life comes from Jesus Christ, and following His teachings. Although my life is not perfect and is full of hardship and challenges like everyone else, my life is also rich and full of blessings because I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have been involved with the youth of our church quite a bit, I helped to organize a girls camp for them. I also taught the little children in our ward for a few months. I play the piano for our church choir. And I will now be in Australia for 18 months trying to help others learn the Saviors teachings. I love visiting some of the women that we attend church with, throughout the week as well!
