Hi I'm Hannah Meeks

I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona. I'm 18 years old and waiting for my mission call. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently 18 years old and waiting to receive my mission call. I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona. I have five siblings, three older sisters Hailey, Hilary, and Haydin, and one younger step-brother Harrison. My family is split but I have so much love for each one of them. Hailey and Hilary are the only married siblings so far in the family. I am in my second semester at BYU-Idaho. I love it here, I know the Lord wanted me to go here for a reason. I have met people that will be in my life forever, and have changed my life. I am so grateful I follow the Lords prompting to apply to go here. It has been the biggest blessing. I can't wait to see where I will be serving for the next 18 months, I will go wherever the Lord needs me to go.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from split parents and life has not always been easy. I experienced family dysfunction to say the least. I lived with my dad and step mom my whole life and didn't have a very good relationship with my mother. God gave me this trial because he knew I could handle it. It was easy, and a lot of the time it was sad and hurt. I would not be who I am without my trials. What I have seen and experienced has strengthened my desires to become a better person and show God that I love him by praying and serving my fellow brothers and sisters. I have desires to find an eternal companion and create a family and teach them this perfect gospel we are blessed to have through the restoration. I know this church is true with every thing in my being. I find the ultimate joy in this church. God has a plan for us, a plan to lead us back to Him. Following his commandments keeps us happy and every relationship positive. I know Joseph Smith restored this church and the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Book to be true. I love this Gospel, I can't say it enough times. I can't wait to serve the Lord for 18 months and share this source of true happiness with people searching for it. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to have daily prayer and scripture reading. I find when I pray and read my scriptures everyday my thoughts and actions are always positive and good. When I follow the Lord's commandments I find that the Holy Ghost is with me through every aspect of my life and I find happiness.
