Hi I'm Hannah

I grew up in the western United States and am a full-time college student. I love water sports and painting and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to compete on swim teams and on water polo teams. I like to animate, although I'm still learning. I'm a full-time college student studying business. I love history and I like to visit historic places and see things that have survived from the past from all over the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had confirmation that the Mormon church is the true church of Jesus Christ. Although I had been taught young, I was never completely sure if this church was true or just different. I know what I had been told and what other people believed, but I was not sure of what I believed. I read and prayed and asked for guidance from my Heavenly Father, leaving behind the words I knew were usually said in prayers at night. I asked if He really could hear me and if He really loved me. And I received my answer that every child of God is of worth and is dearly cherished by Him. I learned that trials and hardships are ways to grow and that through Him we can do all things. I know that God loves me and that Christ loves me. I know that this church is the true and restored church on the earth and the doctrines it teaches are real and incredibly important. I have, through study and prayer and faith, learned and know that there is a living prophet today who leads and guides us. I know that families can be eternal, bound together in this life and in the next. And I know as I continue to live diligently I can become better and continue to be happy no matter what comes because I know that men are that they might have joy.

How I live my faith

I attend church with other students my age and organize activities on Monday nights. I also go and visit other girls that I attend with to see how they are doing and to strengthen one another. I try my best to look for and reach out to those who are sitting alone, in church and in class.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

To increase our faith in Jesus Christ, we study His life and His teachings. We should try to be like Him in all our dealings, living by his example. Show more Show less
