Hi I'm Abby

I grew up in Oregon. I moved to Salt Lake City to attend the University of Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attend the University of Utah, and I study music and pre-medicine. I leave on an LDS mission to Milan, Italy on June 14, 2017. Once I come home from my mission, I will return to the University of Utah and resume my studies. I love Salt Lake City, and I am excited to go back, but I am also anxious for my mission. I know that I will have amazing AND trying experiences, but that I will grow immensely from them. I am ready to serve the Lord to the highest of my capacity.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings me greater joy and comfort than I could ever possibly obtain otherwise. I know that this Gospel was restored to the earth and that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that by reading, pondering, and praying about the Book of Mormon, we can each come to know that it is true; I have done it for myself. I know that Christ's Atonement can heal us and strengthen us individually. His Atonement makes it possible for us to return to live with our Heavenly Father after this life, even though none of us are spotless. The Atonement of Jesus Christ allows us to continue progressing throughout eternity. I know that these things are true, and I know that anyone who has the sincere desire to know that they are true can find out through study and prayer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of a righteous Daughter of God. I fulfill my callings and commitments to the best of my abilities. I make friends with those outside of my religion and treat all people as children of God.
