Hi I'm Abby

I'm a college student planning to study pharmacy. I'm the oldest of four girls. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attending college, and I'm planning to get a Bachelor's degree in chemistry and then go on and study pharmacy. In high school I took lots of advanced and college classes, and I was a swimmer. I still love swimming and I currently teach swim lessons and work as a Lifeguard. I'm the oldest, and I have three younger sisters, and no brothers. I love my family, and we are very close, we spend a lot of time together and with extended family as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, and my family has been members for many generations on both my Mom's and my Dad's sides. I absolutely love this gospel, and I am so grateful for the Joy and Blessings that it brings me everyday. It gives me hope each and everyday about the future and my everyday choices. I would be completely lost without this church. It gives me strength and comfort in times of hardship, and pain. I have had personal witness from the Holy Ghost that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know and love me personally. And I know that they know and love each and every person on Earth. I know that Christ knows all of my pains and afflictions, and that he truly knows exactly how I feel. I know that families can be together forever, because of Christ's sacrifice and through sacred ordinances performed in holy temples. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it was written by ancient prophets, and translated by Joseph Smith through the power of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and I know that there is a Prophet on the Earth today, President Thomas S. Monson, and that he gives us guidance and direction from God. I am so grateful for this Church I know that all of its teachings are true, they bring me so much joy, and peace. I love this gospel with all my heart.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to go and serve a mission and teach others about this church. In addition I am teaching a class of 3 and 4 year old's and I absolutely love it.
