Hi I'm Abbey

I grew up in Spanish Fork, Utah. I just got sealed to my parents and my brother this past September (2016). I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Brigham Young University. I am majoring in psychology and minoring in art. I love to listen to music and just hang out with my great friends. I love appreciating the beauty of nature by going on canyon drives and hikes.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is the only way I can be truly happy. I was less active in the church when I was growing up and it wasn't until my freshman year of college that I realized how much greater my life is when I fully involve the gospel in it. I have had too many wonderful moments where I have felt the love of Heavenly Father to deny this gospel. I'm a Mormon because I need the light that this, the one true gospel, brings to my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving everything God has given me. I try to keep an attitude of gratitude in all my dealings and acknowledge the great things Heavenly Father has put on this earth. I also am going to be living my faith by going on a mission, which I am very excited for! I find it essential to my daily happiness to counsel with the Lord in prayer everyday. Daily scripture study and prayer are two things that I feel keep me grounded and happy.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

One thing that I always refer back to when answering this question is the scripture from Alma chapter 30, in verse 44. Alma says, "...all things denote there is a God." I can see the workmanship of Heavenly Father in the beauty of the earth. There is something about being up in the mountains that testifies to me of His work. In my own life there have been instances far too meaningful to me to ever be coincidences. I know that there is a God because I have felt His personal love for me as an individual and for others around me. I know there is a loving God, Creator, and Father in Heaven who not only is omnipotent but who also loves each of His children. Show more Show less
