Hi I'm Abby Westra

I am from South Jordan, Utah. I attend BYU and I love this gospel because I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University, but I am about to leave to serve in the Tahiti Papeete mission! I love reading (especially the Book of Mormon), swimming, and sewing. I have been a Mormon my whole life and I absolutely love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of this Church at the young age of eight years old. However, in the eleven years since, I have only grown to love it more and more! I have learned that this Church and being a Mormon brings so much joy into my life. I have been able to feel comfort when I thought I was absolutely alone. I have been able to start over after I make a silly mistake. I have been able to serve others and see the light of Christ in their lives. I know all of these things are possible because of Jesus Christ. He makes everything right, and He is the reason I am a Mormon. I love Christ and I know that this Church is true because I have experienced it. I have felt the incomprehensible joy of being a Mormon, and I love it!

How I live my faith

In the past, I have served the people around me by being a leader to my peers, especially in Church. This has included helping my friends to be righteous and love God. Now, I will be taking on a new calling of serving the people of Tahiti! I will share the knowledge I have of this gospel with others. I will teach others to come unto Christ. This will be a joy for me to see other people learn of the happiness this faith brings me!
