Hi I'm AnnaMichelle

I grew up in Salt Lake City, UT, I am studying to be a doctor, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah, grew up in the LDS church, and have always been close to my family and relatives. I enjoy going to school and love a new challenge. I am currently studying Pre-med in college and hope to become a doctor in the future. I play the violin and both read and write stories and love to explore new talents. I love to travel and discover new places and spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up and was raised in the church. My parents are both active and taught me the principles of the gospel. I am so grateful that they taught me these things from my youth. I remember it was the first time I read the Book of Mormon that I realized that I had a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. Whenever I read the Book of Mormon I feel the love God has for his children, and for me. I know that He wants the best for me and He knows each of us individually. He understands what each one of us is going through and knows us perfectly. I know that when I strive to live the way He wants me to, my life is happier and I am blessed. I know that in my life, when I keep the commandments and try my best to make the right choices, I feel happier and my burdens are lighter and I have seen this in others who do this as well. I am so grateful for the Gospel and the blessings my Heavenly Father gives me. I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father, who knows and loves me, and for Jesus Christ who is our Redeemer. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can become better and more like Him. I am so grateful for the knowledge I have of the Gospel and of the principles of this Church. I KNOW that the Book of Mormon is a true book, it has helped me in so many ways of my life. I KNOW that the Prophet is called of God to help lead His church. I KNOW that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me and have done so much for me. I am so grateful for this knowledge and the blessings it has given me in my life and I am so excited to share this knowledge with others.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed participating in my wards Young Women's group, a group of young women between the ages of 12-18, who come together to strengthen one another, build up our talents, faith, testimonies, and come to understand that we are daughters of God. I was able to learn principles that helped me teach the children of my ward. I am serving an LDS Mission for my church and am serving in the Germany, Frankfurt mission speaking German for18 months
