Hi I'm Anne!

I raise a family, volunteer in my community, sing in a choir, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a happily married mother of 5, and grandma of 2. I work full-time in an elementary school with special needs children, and love it. Children have so much to teach us. Some of my favorite things to do are: date my husband, read classic old books, and sing. I sing in a large local choir of 150 voices. I love my family, and my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because everything I have learned about Momon doctrine rings true for me. People can usually tell when something is right for them, and that's how it is for me. I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I have studied it. I've prayed to know the truth of it. God has heard my prayers and let me know in my heart and in my mind that the gospel is the truth of this world.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon means I live my faith everyday, in everything I do. My spirituality is not a separate room in the house of who I am. My faith is the paint on my walls and the floor underfoot. I have made promises to be the best version of myself I can possibly be. That means I look for ways to help others, and be a friend. I try to be as honest as possible. I do my best to follow Jesus' example and love other people. I spend time every month going into the homes of other people who go to my local church where I attend Sunday meetings. We talk about Jesus and visit with each other about everyday things, like raising kids, going to work, and walking the dog. I live my faith by reading the Book of Mormon everyday, and praying throughout the day. I live my faith by remembering the promises I made to God on the day I was baptized, and acting on those promises.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

You can know Mormonism is true by doing a few simple things on your own. Talking to the missionaries in your area, or talking to your Mormon friends is a good start. They are wonderful at answering questions, and trying to fill in all the blanks. But, that can only take you so far. Get a copy of the Book of Mormon for yourself. Read it! Think about what you're reading. You'll find that by reading the book for yourself, your mind will be clear. Your heart will feel something. It will all start to sound so right to you. The last thing you need to do is pray. Ask God to tell you in your heart and in your mind if Mormonism is the truth. He will answer you. Show more Show less

What is the Relief Society?

Relief Society is an integral part of who I am as a Mormon. On Sunday I go to a meeting during church where only the women meet and learn more about Jesus, his gospel, and God's plan for his children. We talk about how to be better wives, mothers and friends. As a woman in Relief Society I do my part to help in the community by bringing meals to those in need, or just sitting with other women who may be lonely or suffering in another way. I love being able to share with my friends in Relief Society the things I've learned that could help them. Relief Society has helped me get through the loss of my mother when I was 19, and a divorce when I was 28. I was glad to have Relief Society in my life when my daughter lost her vision, my son developed epilepsy, and I experienced cancer. The women of Relief Society have lifted me up through my personal sorrows and grief. I do not know where I would be now, if I hadn't had my friends there care for me and give me support and comfort. Relief Society is an accurate moniker. We give relief to anyone (not just women) in need. Show more Show less
