Hi I'm Ana-Alesia Ward

From the great plains of the midwest :)

About Me

I was born in the same town that I have lived in my whole life, until I went out west for school. I was blessed with a big family whom I love very much. Seriously though, they're some of my favorite people. I absolutely love the outdoors and being out among some of God's greatest creations. I also enjoy sports, acting, and music. I have taken part in multiple performances for theatre and band, where I made some very great memories and found that I have a passion for the fine arts. I like being involved in my community and doing all that I can to be of service to those around me.

Why I am a Mormon

Like many others I was born into the church and so up until I was about 13 I relied on my parents testimony. It wasn't until some drastic things happened in my life that I finally had a strong testimony of my own. And my testimony is growing stronger each and every day. I am a Mormon because I know this church to be true. I have seen Heavenly Father's hand in my life so much and each time is just a testament to me that he truly loves each and every one of his children and desires that we do what is right to be able to return to him again someday. I know for a fact that the Book of Mormon is true and was written for us as a second testament for this day and age. I know through the power of the Atonement that we can be forgiven and saved. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ so much and I know that all they want is the best for us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day to day always trying to be Christlike in my thoughts and actions. I learned from my parents that one of the best ways to build up our testimony is to serve God's children and show them love. I have learned to always put my trust in Heavenly Father knowing that he has a specific plan for me and regardless of the things I go through he is always there for me. There have been many trials in my life and with each one I am reminded that I will never go through anything that I cannot handle and that in each trial I can turn to my Heavenly Father for help. The gospel is where we can find absolute joy and love from our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Through the Atonement I know that I someday will be able to be with my family and loved ones again in a glorious state of everlasting happiness.
