Hi I'm AnneE

I was born in Canada and grew up in the USA. I play the violin and love running, basketball, and all other athletics.

About Me

My whole life I have loved sports! From the time I was two I was holding onto a golfball, basketball, tennis ball, any type I could get my hands on! I love basketball and cross country/track and participated in all three in high school. Unfortunately, I had 3 knee surgeries my senior year that ended my chances at playing basketball in university. However, I love to play the violin and coach basketball as well. I have 4 siblings (one sister and three brothers). I am the oldest. I love all kinds of music and have traveled to many places. My favorite place in the world is Waterton National Park. I love to waterski and snowboard. I have lived in many places across Canada as well as in Arizona and Ohio. I have completed my first year of university at the University of Lethbridge and am now about to leave for a mission to Tokyo, Japan!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in eternal families, the atonement, and the hope that this gospel and church bring. I know that God lives and loves each of us and I have felt his love and concern for me in the little details of my life as well as in the major decisions that I have had to make. I am Mormon because I love the Book of Mormon and I have read it through many times and come to the same conclusion each time, which is that it is true. It's words, along with the words of the Bible, have been a strength and help to me in my life. I am a Mormon because I know that the principles taught by this religion and more importantly by our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, are correct and will bring me the most happiness and joy in this life and in the eternities.

How I live my faith

In the past I have been a visiting teacher, a laurel class president, and a part of a YSA family home evening committee. However, I am now a missionary and will be set apart in one week on July 12th, 2016. I will have the opportunity to preach the gospel to those people living in northern Tokyo in the Japanese language! I am so excited for the learning opportunities that this will bring me and know that it will strengthen my testimony so much. I can not think of a better way to "live my faith".
