Hi I'm Abigail

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm adopted. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to swim, and I was the team captain in high school. I like to create and appreciate art. I like to play my ukulele and go camping. I go to school in Hawaii.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel. It teaches how families can be together forever and the beautiful plan that our Heavenly Father has for us. He lives, He knows us individually, He loves us unconditionally, and He gave His Only Begotten Son so that we may overcome our weaknesses and live with God again. The Church is divinely organized in a way that the members take care of each other through loving service. We learn and strive to be like Christ. Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God to restore the church that Christ organized in his days on Earth. The Book of Mormon is a history of people who left Jerusalem and it was written for our day. It is true!

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission for the Church, during which I find people to teach them about the gospel. Before I left on my mission, I would visit sisters in my ward, or congregation, with another sister to talk about the gospel together monthly, build friendships, and offer service. I also helped my young single adult ward plan weekly activities that allowed us to bond and get to know each other.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Jesus Christ suffered on the cross and in the Garden of Gethsemane for all of our sins and hardships. He felt all of the pain we feel in addition to paving the way for us to repent of our sins so that we may be able to live with Him and our Father in Heaven once more after we die. The atonement is the single most important event in the history of the world. He suffered death in one of the most painful and cruel ways possible, and he suffered it alone. He is there for us and with us in our times of need and despair. He is always someone we can turn to for guidance and comfort when we feel alone, and through the Holy Ghost, we can feel that comfort.
