Is being a member of the LDS Church affect your career?

Anny

Yes, being raised in the LDS Church affected my career, and my personal life. I really love and appreciate my family because of the LDS focus on family togetherness. It also teaches The Golden Rule, "Treat others the way you'd like to be treated" and taught me how important it is to be kind. Everything I was taught while being raised in the LDS Church helped create the personality I have today. I like how that makes me a very unique artist and performer!

How I ca Have more friends

Hi Tiffany,in my school the people is so rude ,except my best friend.Sometimes I fell alone.What I can do please answer

Anny

I think it's normal to feel alone sometimes. Kids at school can be very rude. Focus your time and attention on your best friend, and other people that you trust and can count on. I think a good way to have more friends is to just be kind and nice to everyone. Also reaching out or stepping out of your comfort zone to get to know someone can be scary but its a good way to find friends that are worth having!

Past experiences

I can't get rid of my past fears of bullies being hurt im bound to a wheel chair it's hard I hate it I hate my self but I met god he helped me get though everything I love your music it reminds me that I don't have to be alone anymore I have family but I'm still hurting with my past y help me please

Anny

It can be hard to get over fears, and to leave the past behind. I am glad that you met God even though it was through unfortunate hard circumstances. Ask God to help you remember he is close by and to change your perspective about the past. He is listening and He hears and sees you so clearly. He wants all the happiness and good things in the world for you. Pray for peace and comfort to overcome those fears. I've realized more and more when we address our fears with TRUTH, it sheds a light to the dark things we put in our mind. Remind yourself of who you are and how loved you are! God will comfort you and be there through every step. Make a list of all the things that are true, so when you feel down or start to believe the lies in your head you can look to what are facts. I'm also happy my music reminds you you're not alone too. <3

depression

first think first thanks for all the hard work you put into your music and fans so my question is how can i tell my family i need help with a drug addiction i have when i cant even really talk to them about anything i dont know what to do i have never been the type to ask for help and i know if i dont get the help i need its gonna kill me how can i do

Anny

Thank you for reaching out and asking me your question. There are many ways to treat depression and drug addiction. If you don't do anything, it can get worse, and we don't want that. I think the first step is acceptance and realizing that you WANT change, the only change will come from YOU. There's things you can do to substitute or turn to any time you feel weak or like you'll fall back to the drugs. If you can't talk to your family, please talk to a friend, an adviser at school, or someone at your church. There are so many people in your same position and you are NOT alone. You can and will overcome this and I want to encourage you to reach out and connect so you don't feel alone in this journey. You are loved. <3

Relationships

Howdy! I recently became a fan of you after seeing your #ASaviorIsBorn video on YouTube along with other fellow LDS artists like Lindsey Sterling and The Gardiner Sisters. I don't know too much about you, aside from watching your video of the 28 things about you. Anyway, while clicking through stuff while learning more about you I came across this and thought "what the heck, I'm always in need of advice." A little about me is that I'm a hopeless romantic but cos of my trials and baggage, I don't have much confidence in establishing a relationship. I was bullied cos of my appearance so I have issues concerning my image and have depression too. I've tried to establish a relationship with other LDS ladies in their 20s like me but once they see my faults and weaknesses they end things before they get to know the real me. Pretty shallow, I know. Plus not living in Utah or other western states with lots of Mormons doesn't help me cos no one wants to do the long distance thing. Anyway I was wondering what a beautiful young LDS lady could give me some advice and encouragement for a guy who struggles with finding love in life.

Anny

My fans do know alot about me, but not everything. Sometimes I need advice too, and I have faults and weaknesses too! (We all do!) I'm sorry you were bullied in the past. If it is still affecting you and making you depressed, I recommend you talk to someone about it. The best relationship advice someone gave me once is to write a list of all the traits of your ideal partner. And then develop those traits yourself. Start gaining your confidence back. Start realizing all you have to offer and give. You are SO valuable and a son of God! He sees and KNOWS you and what you need. Lean to Him to comfort you and let your identity rest in Him! Learn to love yourself. Being genuinely happy and confident is very attractive! If you want to date only Mormons, can you move to an area where a lot of Mormons live? Find your true love and then decide together where you'll live-happily-ever-after. ;) I just want to emphasis how loved you are and how God has a plan for you! Pray for guidance in finding people you can open up to. Pray for those that have compassion and empathy and want to grow together!! Realize we ALL have baggage. There is this perception of perfection and I've felt it especially in the LDS world, but nobody is perfect and we are all flawed, but that doesnt make us any less valuable because God knows who we are and He wants us to see ourselves the way He does! <3
