Hi I'm Hannah

I'm from Seattle. I love photography, rock climbing, and science. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a college student in Provo but I am planning on serving a mission sometime in the next year or so. I've gotten really into photography lately, and I love climbing and mountain biking. I am also looking into majoring in Biology or something related.

Why I am a Mormon

In the few years that I've been on this earth, I've come to know Jesus Christ as my Savior, my Redeemer, my Lord, and my brother. Through receiving the blessings of His Atonement, I have felt of His love for me, as well as my Heavenly Father's love for me and perfect knowledge of my situation. I believe that to God and Jesus Christ, families are more important than anything else. He wants us to be together as earthly families for eternity, and to ultimately come back to Him as His spirit children. I know that He, through his Son Jesus Christ, has made a way for us to return to be with Him, and to be together with our families forever. I am eternally grateful for my family, both here and in Heaven. I am eternally grateful that I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father, who in all of His might and wisdom, amongst billions of people and innumerable situations He could be worrying about, He knows me personally and wants me to have joy.

How I live my faith

I was recently called to be the secretary for one of the women's organizations in my ward. I have been trying to fellowship the women in our ward, and I'm learning to love them more and more each day as I get to know them and serve them.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Hannah
A number of different people wrote texts that were compiled into the Book of Mormon. Much in the way that the Bible was written and is organized, most of the sections or "Books" of the Book of Mormon were written by the prophets of their time, called of God to reveal truths to the people of the ancient Americas. God called these prophets to record the stories of their time and of their lives, to bear witness of the truth of the Gospel and, ultimately, the ministry and teachings of Jesus Christ, both as described in the New Testament and of His coming to the Americas after His Resurrection. Towards the end of the time during which the Book of Mormon was written, a prophet by the name of Moroni began gathering and transcribing the words of these prophets, and compiled them into one large text. He died during his work in a great war between the two nations described in the Book of Mormon--the Nephites and the Lamanites. His son, the last remaining Nephite after this war, finished his work, and they each added their own notes and personal testimonies, which can be found in two of the last books in the Book of Mormon. As you may have guessed, the Book of Mormon was named after the prophet who compiled it. We members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are commonly referred to as "Mormons" in reference to this set of scriptures. Show more Show less
