Hi I'm Abby McBride

I'm a people person. I love singing on the top of my lungs, hiking, and making people smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love people. I love hiking, rock climbing, and being in the outdoors. I have struggled with depression on and off throughout my life, but the knowledge that God loves broken things and that through my Savior I can be whole has helped me. I'm serving a full-time mission in California, Redlands.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. The church has provided a second family for me. When I moved away from home the Church gave a ward family to take care of me, but above all I am a Mormon because I have received an answer that the gospel can bring me peace, joy, and comfort. Through studying the scriptures I can receive answers to my prayers and receive direction in my life. I encourage everyone to study the Book of Mormon and Bible and you can know that what we have is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith be being my best self. I do my best to serve those around me especially the youth who are having hard times. I have a gift where I can really relate to lots of people and love people for who they are. This gift has helped me reach out to people who might feel alone at the time, I can show them that with Christ and with God our Heavenly Father we are truly never alone. I also participated in an LDS choir for 7 years we traveled the US sharing a message of hope and love for everyone. Music is powerful and has changed my life.
